SEM Consultant


Apiary Digital is a collective of experienced independent marketing consultants. We regularly bring in exciting client projects and match them with teams of consultants—all pre-vetted members of the collective. We provide a fully curated, supported experience to both clients and consultants.

We’re an ideal fit for consultants who want:

  • A career-driven, flexible approach to work
  • To work as part of a small, location-independent team
  • To leverage the knowledge of other talented consultants
  • A team to fall back on for vacation and sick coverage
  • To reduce the amount of non-billable hours that go into consulting such as selling, contracts, scoping, billing, and other administrative work
  • 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 digital marketing consultants for both immediate and potential future projects across a variety of clients. If you’re interested in learning more, please Tell Us About You
