Our History

The seeds of Organik SEO were planted in 2009 at a time when SEO and social media had just started growing solid roots. Businesses were looking for guidance on how to navigate their efforts within this new and rapidly evolving frontier.

Organik SEO founder and CEO, Julien Brandt, had a unique blend of passion for digital marketing and a genuine desire to help others grow their businesses. Julien took a leap of faith and, in true bootstrap entrepreneur fashion, started a company focused on offering digital marketing services that harnessed the power of SEO and Social Media. Environmental awareness, sustainability, and work-life balance were additional elements that Julien felt strongly about, and he wanted to ensure they were ingrained in the company. He created ‘core values’ based on these elements to serve as foundational principles on which the company would grow and thrive. This influenced his desire to lead Organik SEO to become one of the first 10 certified Benefit Corporations in San Diego.

Over the years, Organik SEO has continued to cultivate a team of professionals that take a hands-on, holistic approach toward building and successfully managing a variety of digital marketing services. These services include SEO, SEM, Social Media and Content Marketing. Julien’s mission has always been for Organik SEO to be an agency that exists to make a positive, lasting impact on the community and the world while being an open source business model for those that are inspired to use business as a force for good.
