About Us

Who is Transistor?

Essentially, we’re a digital marketing agency that is really good at search (PPC & SEO). The key difference between us and the vast majority of competitors is our lack of overhead gives you better results and a more enjoyable experience. Almost every agency has a fancy office, a bunch of experienced people in management roles (that you never work with) and all the typical business expenses eating into profits. Which means you’re likely working with someone that has under 3 years experience. With us, everyone works remotely. Our office is virtual. We have no salaries going to people who aren’t working directly with clients. So the only people you work with are the experts. Your costs tend to be lower, as you’re not paying for a ping pong table or beer fridge or downtown loft space. It’s the typical advantages of working with a good freelancer, but with a bigger team that can help scale and support numerous services.
