The Gurus | SEO Marketing Agency
Our gurus are experts in SEO, Web Design, Mobile Site Design, Social Media Marketing, Graphic Design, Video Marketing, Print Production, and more. Guru Marketing creates award winning websites, and are recognized for working with clients all over the world.
Kate DeGraff founded KM Guru Marketing in 2010 in Los Gatos, CA where she quickly learned that her independent spirit was not suited for the corporate world, and found herself wanting to do more for clients who were sold generic marketing packages and held to contracts that didn’t produce, to really help medium to small businesses with more of a personal connection. She founded KM Guru as a result of this notion. KM Guru’s commitment to their clients is demonstrated through the success of their client’s search engine, such as Google, rankings and visibility. “Our goal is to first aid clients in the education process of placement online for their business, identify and build the differentiating capabilities they need to achieve and grow there. This potential combination
would not only deliver on this innovative value proposition, but will also help reinvent the industry. Our clients dominate their local
competition online.”, says Kate.
