Dear Prospective Client,

I'm Tino Umo, the Founder and Growth Strategists here at Searchgage Media. Welcome!

Thank you for visiting our website, and by landing on this page you're telling us that you want to be able to build trust and be reassured that you're working with people that have experience and competence to deliver results.


Here is a little bit about myself (in third-person) and my journey to setting up Searchgage Media.

Funnel Marketing Agency

Creative Beginnings

Became a HTML/CSS Website Designer and Developer by studying Website Design for Dummies. LOL 🙂

Prior to deciding to set up a Digital Marketing Agency, Tino wanted to build a website for his Sound Engineering skills, after losing his government service job at his local council (municipality). After successfully creating his first website, Tino officially called himself a Website Designer, and started to acquire work and contracts for his services.

Digital Marketing

Met Digital Marketing

Discovered the WordPress Content Management System and was introduced to Search Engine Optimisation and PPC.

As the Internet Search Engine Giants started to rise and have a greater influence on consumer decisions, Tino was asked by his website clients at the time, to help their businesses climb up the search rankings. A new job role was born, Search Marketing Expert.

Big Brand Agency

The Agency Consultant

Developed Digital Marketing Skills further by entering the world of Paid Advertising, Media Buying and Conversion Optimization.

As more and more work came Tino's way, he gave consultation to PR and Advertising Agencies who required his broad skill set of digital marketing. These agency partnerships resulted in providing growth building strategies for big brand projects such as McDonald's, MTV and Cosmopolitan to name a few.
