Who We Are
Who We Are
We believe growing together creates the freedom to be more.
We're a team of 30 enthusiastic and focused analysts, developers, designers, account managers, and writers who have a passion for helping businesses achieve their dreams.
Semify was founded in 2008 by entrepreneurs Adam Stetzer, Ph.D. and Chad Hill. Chad and Adam developed innovative digtial marketing process to effectively and efficiently manage campaigns for their direct clients, joking that they had built a 747 to fly from Orlando to Tampa. Turns out, the powerful process, analysis, link building, connections to newspapers and workflow software was the perfect solution for agencies that want to provide real SEO and PPC to clients.
Now, Semify has hundreds of agency partners that white-label Semify's digital marketing services. We've been in this space for 10 years. We've learned that our greatest asset is our people, who we care for dearly. Based on this renewed focus on growing amazing professionals, we have received excellent press coverage due to our intense focus on culture and professional growth.

After 10 years of growing our culture, producing leaders and growing amazing human-beings, we have realized that our real strength is our values and our people.
We believe growing together creates the freedom to do more, have more, and be more.
Semify recognizes the inherent uniqueness, creativity, and intelligence in all people. We realize it's critical to create an environment that cultivates our talents. This means understanding when to acknowledge our team members' individual autonomy, foster their passions, and support one another through continued education and individual growth. It also means holding each other accountable. Semify is a trusting, collaborative environment made up of people who care about each other and are driven to help small businesses grow.
When making everyday decisions, we refer to our values to make sure that each action we take is in line with what we believe.
We eat failure for breakfast
We believe in an "It could be better if..." feedback loop. The only true failure is not learning from failure. Failure does not set us back; it fuels us so we can move forward.
This phrase reminds us that the team has each others' backs. While not grammatically correct (we know, and we think that's funny because we specialize in Content Marketing), it demonstrates our company's collaborative nature. It shows that Semify is a community, and we am all part of it. We also love to laugh.
We are in the relationship business
We are all about the WOW factor. We pride ourselves on our close relationships with our partners, colleagues, and community. Our mission calls us to foster these partnerships by delivering on our commitments.
Go forth and lead
Every day, we strive to remind ourselves (and each other) that we are capable of more than we know. Each one of us has leadership potential and the ability to unlock it.
Get the customer in the room
We strive to innovate by understanding cause and effect through rigorous experimentation. When you're a customer here, your voice matters. We implement changes based on your feedback.
We grow decision trees
The people closest to the information make the decisions around here. We use a decision framework for even the smallest changes, so we're prepared when bigger, more difficult decisions are necessary.
