How did you decide to get involved in this line of work? How did the business get started?

My name is Matt Bertram, and I am the CEO and Lead Strategist at EWR Digital. My journey into digital marketing began with a deep passion for technology and the ever-evolving digital landscape. Growing up with my mother as one of the first employees at Microsoft, I witnessed firsthand the transformative power of technology.

Recognizing the immense potential of the internet, I saw it as a powerful tool to connect businesses with their target audience in innovative ways. After graduating with a degree in marketing, I initially started in a sales role at GSK (GlaxoSmithKline), a Fortune 500 company. However, I quickly made the transition to the digital marketing field as the industry began to flourish.

During my consulting work, I crossed paths with Chris Burres, the local founder of EWR Digital and co-host of the renowned Best SEO Podcast, "The Unknown Secrets of Internet Marketing." Our shared passion and expertise instantly clicked, leading us to collaborate and work together. The rest, as they say, is history.

Throughout my career, I have been driven by a commitment to excellence, data-driven decision-making, and a genuine desire to help businesses succeed in the digital landscape. These values have guided my involvement in digital marketing and continue to fuel our work at EWR Digital.

Tell us a couple things you are proud of about your business. What are you known for? What
separates you from the competition?

One standout feature of our agency is our expertise in SEO. We've been recognized as industry leaders for over a decade through our popular SEO podcast, "The Unknown Secrets of Internet Marketing" or the Best SEO Podcast.

We have a proven track record of exceeding our clients' expectations. We've achieved exceptional results, such as a 73x return on investment and raising over $3 million in venture funding. You can find inspiring case studies and testimonials on our website.

We operate from a proven growth methodology that we developed internally over the years that consists of six key steps: strategy, aligning sales and marketing efforts, elevating your brand through thought leadership marketing, amplifying your brand visibility, converting leads, and analyzing data for valuable insights.

What is your favorite part of running this business?

I really enjoy helping customers and have a strong interest in analytics and data. When it comes to SEO and PPC, it's the perfect combination of these two passions. By optimizing websites and analyzing data, I can make a real impact on businesses' online presence. It's rewarding to see how SEO strategies and pay-per-click can improve search engine rankings and drive traffic, ultimately connecting businesses with their target audience.

I thrive on diving into data, spotting trends, and finding ways to enhance website visibility and performance. Being able to witness the tangible results of my efforts and the positive impact on a business's growth is incredibly fulfilling!

Who is your ideal customer/client? Who do you serve best?

At EWR Digital, our target market ranges from SMB business owners to Fortune 100 companies. We specialize in working with individuals and organizations who aim to grow their business through search marketing and understand the significance of SEO.

We have worked in many industries from B2C: home services and contractor marketing such as plumbing and HVAC to B2B: SaaS & Ecommerce companies and large oil and gas producers.

Whether it's small businesses looking to establish their online presence or large enterprises seeking advanced strategies, we cater to clients who appreciate the power of organic traffic and want to leverage SEO to achieve their marketing goals.

Can you tell us something about yourself as the business owner? What is your background?

I'm a person always driven to achieve more and open to exploring new avenues. I've excelled in different roles such as sales, business development, digital marketer, and even podcaster. I love taking on challenges and embracing opportunities for personal and professional growth as well as sharing knowledge and helping others succeed is something that truly lights me up. I contribute to various industry publications, providing valuable insights and tips.

Additionally, I offer training and consulting services, sharing my expertise with fellow enthusiasts who are just as passionate.

When it comes to digital strategy, data analysis, and search engine optimization, I'm in my zone. My analytical mindset allows me to leverage technology and make it work wonders for businesses!

At the core, I'm a motivated individual driven by the desire to see businesses thrive and deliver life altering results! I'm always on the lookout for fresh opportunities, meaningful partnerships, and mentors who can help me grow both personally and professionally. Building new things and making a positive impact is what keeps me going!
