UpTik Media Opens In Hixson

Monday, September 9, 2013

UpTik Media, LLC, an advertising agency specializing in content marketing and search engine optimization (SEO), has opened UpTik Media in Hixson. UpTik Media helps brands build influence, trust, and leads via custom content marketing and SEO solutions. 

The agency’s experienced in-house team and network of professional partners are dedicated to helping clients find the best ways to get the best messages to the biggest audiences.

The company was founded by Bart Simpson, who is also the vice president of business development at UpTik’s sister company, Graphic Solutions, a Hixson-based global decal and signage provider since 1981.

Joining Simpson at UpTik are Bill Colrus, director of content marketing; Brady Callahan, lead SEO strategist; and Brian Shakley, digital media specialist. Shakley is also a business development executive at Graphic Solutions, and Jay Simpson, Graphic Solutions founder, is UpTik’s chief financial officer.  

UpTik creates engaging, consistent, and optimized messaging across all of its clients’ online assets, producing a compelling marketing approach that delivers. 

“More and more, whether they know it or not, people are training themselves to tune out traditional advertising,” says Bart Simpson, founder and president of UpTik Media. “Consumers have grown to hate sales pitches, but audiences love to hear stories, and we help brands find those audiences and give them the content they want."

Experts in everything from basic keyword research to complicated, technical SEO analyses, UpTik prides itself on being ahead of the industry curve, implementing the latest techniques as soon as they are proven to be effective. 

“The SEO industry moves fast and changes often,” said Mr. Simpson. “Some tactics that worked five years ago will now harm a website's performance in search engines. We meet our clients in the middle when it comes to SEO, first informing and educating them about how search engines operate, and then providing the tools they need to succeed long term."
