Highcliff Search Engine Marketing is a new kind of marketing agency. We work with companies to define and socialize their corporate vision using Internet marketing techniques. Then we craft demand generation and branding programs that help products stand out and get noticed.

We’re not an advertising or public relations firm, but we were founded out of the need to use Highcliff-SEM-Digital-Marketing-Diagramdigital channels and social interaction over the Web to improve results from marketing. We bring marketing organizations fresh ideas based on deep, practical expertise in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Internet Advertising and Social Media Marketing (SMM).

In either an interim staff role or on a project basis we help companies:
• Stay nimble and focused on developing, selling and supporting their products
• Effectively launch products with lean organizations and limited budgets
• Fill marketing resource gaps to meet short and long term goals

The firm was founded by Mike Cichon, a Silicon Valley marketing veteran with over 20 years of combined Sales and Marketing experience in both large and small organizations. In the past decade Mike has worked with numerous venture-backed startups to bring innovative products to market. He has focused exclusively on cloud-based solutions since 2006.
