LSF Interactive, a leading search marketing company based in San Francisco, California, has expanded its reach and the possibilities for its clients through a recent merger with a top search marketing agency in San Diego: Geary Group. The two companies have merged to create a new entity known as Geary LSF Group. Although the merger only happened at the beginning of summer, the new company has already shown impressive results.
Signs of Success
One of the first signs that the merger between Geary and LSF Interactive is a big success came from Advertising Age, a respected source of information for the marketing and advertising industries. The popular industry news publication recently named Geary LSF among the Top 25 Search Marketing Agencies, which is impressive considering that the merger was just announced in April. In fact, Geary LSF Group wasn’t only named among the top 25; the new agency was near the top of the list for search marketing, being named the fourth-largest independent agency in that category.
Facts about the Ad Age Results
The results of this report should not be taken lightly – more than 900 agencies that provide advertising, marketing and media services were taken into consideration by the Ad Age DataCenter. These findings were also complemented by a recent announcement by independent research firm TopSEOs.com, which named Geary LSF Group one of the Top Five Search Engine Optimization (SEO) companies four months in a row. This is the kind of news that any online marketing group would be proud to receive.
Response from the Team
The teams at LSF Interactive and Geary Group were both excited to receive such high accolades so soon after their merger. Technically, the report was based on domestic annual revenue shows for Geary and LSF from the previous year, and Geary LSF was found to be the 16th highest grossing search marketing agency of any kind in all of the United States. Being fourth among all independent agencies was the icing on the cake. Daniel Laury, President and CEO of Geary LSF Group, was especially pleased to receive the news, saying, “We are delighted to be recognized by Advertising Age for our work in the search marketing speciality area.” He added that this news only spotlights a small portion of the greater Geary LSF story, and that the new entity is uniquely positioned in the market to offer clients across the globe the ability to optimize and influence the entire range of customer engagement possibilities.
