Why Businesses Love
Working with Fortress

Our Story

A little about us, we started Fortress to be the go-to SEO agency for businesses looking to scale and level up their online presence.

Back in 2018, Fortress founder Gerrid Smith was looking for an agency to outsource link building and other SEO tasks for a CBD eCommerce company he launched. None delivered.

Deciding to take matters into his own hands, he knew it was going to be an uphill battle to promote a cannabis product. Using a combination of advanced SEO tactics and outside-the-box strategies, they hit 8 figures in revenue in the first year of business.

We know first-hand how frustrating it is to work with an agency that either doesn’t care enough or lacks the expertise to get results. Fortress is on a mission to help companies get the recognition they deserve online.
