In a nutshell: Smith Brothers Media is a full-service, creative digital agency. 

We help our clients grow and achieve success via digital marketing, creative work, business strategy and some very smart tech solutions.

But that’s just what we do. What about the weird and wonderful mix of gears and gaskets that really make SBM tick…?

 

it all started with two brothers...

The SBM story began with James and Tom, brothers who knew they had a smarter way to do SEO.

 

Smith Brothers Media was born, going from just one room with a couple of bean bag chairs to a tiny office down in Chelsea. From there, we made the move to a larger space in Cheltenham, expanding our offering far beyond simple SEO. 

 

Smith Brothers Media was starting to grow into a fully-fledged media agency, offering a smorgasbord of marketing smarts with a growing list of clients. But of course, we weren’t done growing – not by a long shot.

  • We expanded our in-house digital marketing team in 2016, acquiring video production company 77 Productions.

  • We welcomed the design gurus from SAS Creative and Designer Websites a few months later.

  • The full force of our very own Development team joined us in 2019.

  • Creative agency Follow became our Brisbane representatives in 2021.

Going from just SEO to a full-service creative agency, SBM might be a little bigger than when we first started, but we’ve never lost sight of our original goal: to put people first and do digital The Smarter Way®.

Our Values.

“WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING GROW AND IMPROVE GREAT BUSINESSES.”

Fine-sounding words. And we mean every single one of them.

 

The SBM team is here to grow alongside you and your business in meaningful conversation and partnership.

 

We’re here to listen, understand and get to work on the right solution, not something pre-made, all wrapped in plastic and picked off a shelf.

Helping great businesses grow and improve isn’t a tagline, or a marketing slogan.

 

It’s our guiding principle. It’s how we see past the numbers to what makes a business truly great: people and passion.

you’ve got a great business
LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER AND HELP IT GROW.

The Team.

Meet the folks at SBM.

 

Without them, we’d just be an empty building.
