Winning the SEO Battle: 3Q Digital Acquires Inseev Interactive

In April 2021, I shared the 3Q Manifesto – a commitment to stay true to our founding roots while leading our team, clients, and the industry through the next phase of growth. Since then, we’ve adopted a company-wide growth mindset. This means doing everything we can to embrace change and continue to evolve. That’s why our rallying cry is “Accept No Limits.” To me, “Accept No Limits” means pushing the envelope and constantly striving to find new and better ways of serving 3Q Digital’s clients. Today, I have the honor of sharing our next phase of growth! I am thrilled to announce our acquisition of Inseev Interactive, a leading search engine optimization (SEO) and content agency based in San Diego!
Inseev Interactive was founded in 2013 by CEO Jimmy Page. In just eight years, Inseev has grown from Jimmy and an employee hired off Craigslist to a team of more than 60 employees and approximately 100 clients. Inseev is an award-winning agency, not only for its SEO and content capabilities, but also for its company values. Inseev’s talent and expertise earned it the title “Best Large SEO Agency” by the U.S. Search Awards in 2021. Inseev is also a Moz Recommended Company, four-time Inc. 5000 winner, 2021 Drum Awards finalist for ‘Best Content Marketing ROI/Measurement Program,’ and has been honored with a slew of other prestigious awards.
David Rodnitzky founded 3Q Digital in 2008 in a California coffee shop – fueled by free WiFi, freshly brewed coffee, and a calling to provide clients with a new way of doing things. Within a year, 3Q Digital had five employees and 15 clients. Since 2018, we have experienced a 100% growth rate, we’ve rolled out our Growth Model, onboarded 125 new clients, and brought in more than 100 new employees. Though 3Q Digital has experienced impressive growth, we have stayed true to our foundation with an unwavering commitment to our values. With this acquisition, Inseev will underpin our next chapter of growth, and SEO will become our largest growth services offering. Our mission is to turn brands into market leaders. We can’t expect limitless growth from our clients if we don’t challenge ourselves, which is why we are so excited for this next stage!
According to both our own internal market research and that of industry analysts, SEO is one of the most important channels for brand marketers and is on a major growth trajectory in the coming years. At 3Q Digital, we believe that the search engine results page is a critical part of our client’s overall brand and owned media strategy. 3Q has an incredible team that will join forces with Inseev to further enhance our SEO practice and add new growth opportunities for both clients and employees. Inseev takes a unique, tech-enabled, highly detailed strategic approach to SEO and offers exceptional custom content and ethical link building for its clients.
Inseev’s SEO capabilities were not the only factor that went into our decision to make this acquisition. In addition to “Accept No Limits,” our other values “Act for the Greater Good,” “Be Inclusive,” and “Own It” are core to the DNA of 3Q Digital. From our client relationships and for each of our employees, these four values are emblematic of who we are. I am always humbled when we’re named to lists like Ad Age and Inc. Magazine’s “Best Workplaces” and “5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies.” Our core values and the people who work here are without a doubt the biggest reason we win these awards and have enjoyed such success, and we had to be sure we joined with a company that would align with and strengthen our culture. Inseev shares similar values to ours, will bring even more opportunities for our employees, and allow everyone – at every level – to build their individual skill set and learn best practices from each other!
We’re excited to spearhead the next wave of SEO by uniting Inseev’s talents with our growth-minded approach to content and creator marketing. This acquisition is an amazing opportunity for 3Q Digital to strengthen our current SEO offerings, add some fantastic new clients, and generate even better outcomes for our existing clients through a more holistic digital experience!
We can’t wait to hit the ground running with the Inseev team, and I’m proud of everything we’ve accomplished in the short amount of time since our manifesto was published several months ago. If you’re interested in becoming a part of our growing team, check out our careers page and apply today!
