About Organik SEO
Organik SEO works with purpose driven companies and like-minded businesses that aim to positively impact their community and the environment. Their approach is unique in that they focus on providing honest and transparent online marketing services for businesses and agencies they feel passionate about supporting. Their mission is to be an "Agency for Change" using the power of "marketing good" to support evolved businesses that are positively impacting their community, their industry, or the world. They believe it is far more important to be a resource than to simply “close a deal” and if their services aren’t a match for a specific business they’re still happy to help by offering a referral to a fellow company they trust.
Educating clients about their services is a fundamental part of their overall process. By helping clients understand their methods, and taking time to dive deeper into the needs and goals of a business, they aim to develop a holistic and cohesive strategy that will ultimately help clients with their online marketing efforts. Their collaborative approach helps ensure alignment between the shared goals of the client and the agency.

Everything about being a B Corp is and always has been at the core of who we are and strive to be. Our mission is to be an "Agency for Change". We use the power of "marketing good" to support evolved businesses that are positively impacting their community, their industry, or the world. Achieving B Corp status is not only an honor, but it also obligates us to continuously uphold the high standards of our company’s original vision to pursue positive social impact by maintaining eco-friendly practices, social responsibility, and honest transparent business ethics.
The Change We Seek®
We believe that being eco-friendly starts where you live and work. Being green is not a trend or goal – it’s ingrained in our practices, from the services we offer to our office environment. A green philosophy is one of the foundations that Organik SEO was built on and will always remain a core value. As a proud member of the Solana Beach community,it's not just our passion, it's our responsibility. Our team actively seeks out ways we can use our skills and expertise for the common good, and take pride in our ongoing efforts.
Here are some ways the we are committed to being green:
- Use an eco-friendly printer for client materials that uses recycled paper and soy-based ink
- Use less than 3 reams of recycled paper per year
- Conduct all billing and payment processing electronically
- Deliver our products and services electronically
- Use office lighting that is 100% CFL Energy Star rated
- Utilize reclaimed materials for office furniture and decor.
Organik SEO also makes an effort to regularly support a charity or nonprofit that speaks to their hearts, whether it’s organizing a donation drive, participating in a local beach clean-up, consulting and assisting with SEO or Social Media campaigns, or offering their time (and in some cases money) to do their part to help. Beyond working with like-minded companies and organizations, they gladly donate their time by providing SEO and Social Media services to select nonprofits and charities.
Organik SEO also proudly supports the following organizations:
- National Resources Defense Council
