BERGEY CREATIVE GROUP
Strategy, Creativity, Experience and Passion
We have long lasting-relationships with our clients for one simple reason: we focus on listening and providing the best creative work and customer service possible. The combination is why we have grown steadily by word of mouth alone.
Some agencies do just print, others do just web — we do both so we can strategically blend all messages and available mediums. This is what allows Bergey Creative Group to be “Your Full-Service Creative Partner.”
Since 1990, Tom Bergey and his team of creative professionals have provided clients with strategic marketing, branding, and innovative campaign development. Over the years, Bergey Creative Group has gained valuable experience and insights into many niches of business – including food, building, auction, retirement and not-for-profit industries, to name a few.
Now, Bergey Creative Group enters a new era. In August 2018, we proudly became the first officially licensed partner of 1SEO I.T. Support & Digital Marketing.
1SEO has a storied history spanning back nearly a decade. What initially began as an idea in a Center City, Philadelphia apartment building has since transformed into one of the most successful digital marketing agencies in the nation. Since their inception in 2009, 1SEO has experienced exponential growth, expanding from only a handful of employees to a staff that now numbers well over 100.
The company has become renowned for their expertise in innovative digital marketing campaigns. In fact, for the past several years, 1SEO has been shortlisted for more than a dozen US Search Awards. They have also been recognized by Inc. 5000 Magazine as one of the world’s fastest-growing private companies for five years running, from 2014 – 2018.
As a proud Google Premier Partner and Facebook Marketing Partner, 1SEO caters to more than 400 clients, ranging from service-based companies, to eCommerce businesses, and even nonprofit organizations — all to assist them in accomplishing their mission.
By collaborating with 1SEO, Bergey Creative Group gains the agency’s award-winning digital marketing and extended I.T. services, along with an opportunity for them to expand their growing brand. This will truly be a mutually-beneficial relationship for both agencies, and we look forward to working with 1SEO I.T. Support & Digital Marketing.
