At the heart and soul of Vertical Leap is a team of highly-skilled, knowledgeable and incredibly friendly people – without them we simply would not have grown to become the company we are today. Our passion for what we do, and desire to get the best possible results for every single customer (no matter how big or small), is the reason our customers stay with us for years on end.

We know how important your digital campaigns are to the success of your business, so when it comes to getting the biggest possible return for your investment, you will not find a more dedicated or driven bunch of people to help you get there.

Guests are at the centre of what we do, so creating a website which is easily discoverable in search engines is a high priority for us.

When they tell you that they will be an extension of your team, that's the absolutely truth. And, one of the many reasons why I strongly recommend VL for both SEO and PPC. They continue to deliver incredible results to us on both areas - sometimes with little notice and tight deadlines.

Achieving more scale than humanly possible

Our Apollo Insights technology ensures that no stone is left unturned when it comes to your search marketing campaign. It collects everything that could be known about your website, your wider online presence, your competitors and your overall market. It combines, verifies and analyses all this data to provide both prescriptive and predictive insights that identify all the opportunities and threats that you are facing. It is infused with artificial intelligence that provides our search specialists with a level of analysis that would simply not be possible manually; more than humanly possible.

This means we spend more time implementing a finely targeted set of activities that are quantitatively proven to get the greatest impact. We spend more time on the details that will yield the greatest results. More time on what matters most – your business.
