SEM Consultant

About Apiary Digital

Apiary Digital is a collective of experienced independent marketing consultants. We curate teams of SEM, SEO, social, and analytics consultants.

We’re an ideal fit for consultants who want:

  • A career-driven, lifestyle-friendly approach to work
  • To be part of a small team, keeping knowledge sharp and up-to-date
  • To reduce the amount of non-billable hours that go into consulting, such as contracts, billing, and other administrative work—not to mention, the hustle of bringing in new business
  • To get paid on time
  • To have the freedom to maintain projects and clients outside of Apiary (that are, of course, not direct competitors of Apiary clients)

We’re looking to build our roster of marketing consultants for both immediate and potential future projects across a variety of clients.
