rankONE was born in 2009 after an ultimatum arose between looking for a new job or creating one. Initially a company that focused purely on search engine optimisation (SEO) has changed directions to find our true calling being restaurant marketing. Our true love SEO will always be apart of the business, just not the core of our current service base.
In 2011 rankONE became Google AdWords certified and a Google partner. SEO and AdWords were our game and we were gained great exposure to land us some fantastic long term clients.
2013 saw us go pro and turn a small search related company into a large full service digital agency. We grew to 15 staff members and our offering increased to include Web Design, Web Development, Website Hosting, SEO, AdWords, Social Media Management and more. We were running online marketing seminars and were winning clients as big as Swinburne University.
In 2015, the original rankONE crew realised that although business was great, the direction was just not where we had imagined it, going to work was not fun and we couldn’t wait for the weekend – TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) couldn’t come quick enough. We decided to give up the big agency road and go back to our roots – all the web services scrapped and back to just offering search marketing related services.
2017 was when the game changed. We found our niche! We took our online marketing knowledge and put it towards helping the hospitality industry. Previously we would serve anyone and everyone, but now that we have picked just one industry we have become the experts and the best at what we do. Our knowledge of search and marketing for the previous 8 years has helped us become the leaders of the industry. rankONE has grown from managing the advertising and awareness of 15 hospitality venues to over 70 in an extremely short period.
2020 when the world ended, hospitality went into lockdown and the game changed.
The rankONE team didn’t stop. We were on the front line working around the clock for our clients making sure they knew we had their backs. When the game changes, we adapt – and not only do we adapt, we excel and lead the way. In a year that for some was a complete write-off, rankONE initiated Consortium Food Group, a concept that immediately starting generating greater profits to all of its members.
Hospitality requires experience, awareness, managing expenses, and relationships.
The rankONE team has all the essential ingredients to get any hospitality business more profit. We have proven results with over 300 venues Australia-wide.
