he story of Firestorm SEM started back in 2007, when Jonathan Stec wanted to start selling products online as a side business. He did well initially but was eventually forced out by those with much higher budgets and doing things like copying his sites, negative SEO, and even hacking (keep in mind this was a time when you could still run a Google Ad and show one URL yet send users to a totally different URL and when the more spam blog comment backlinks you had the higher you ranked). So, he decided he had enough and wanted to use his new found knowledge to help other businesses grow and took a position at GSI Commerce (now a part of eBay). There he gained big brand experience, working with brands such as GNC, Toys R Us, and Skullcandy.
Eventually he left GSI to pursue other ventures and ended up starting Firestorm SEM in 2011. Firestorm SEM quickly grew into a top SEM agency in Philadelphia, working with local clients such as Rutgers Camden, regional brands like Revelator Coffee, and international brands like Verizon. Firestorm SEM has been a Top SEM Agency in Philadelphia for the past 4 years (rated by Clutch), is a Premier Google Partner (top 1% of Google’s trusted service providers), and is routinely a Top Rated agency on Upwork.
