Labeling Generation Web as a “Christian” SEO company isn’t about marketing. We’re not trying to be controversial or appeal to only Christian businesses. When we say Generation Web is a Christian-owned company, it means something, and we’d like to help you understand what that is.
We Have One Boss
We recognize God as our Boss; He is the One we answer to. And I might add, He is the best boss ever! We take Colossians 3:23 literally where it says “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” With this verse as our guiding principle, the work we do is as if it were for God and not a client.
We strive to take actions that are ethical even if the client would never know. God knows, and our goal is to honor Him in our business.
God led me to start an SEO company in early 2006, back before search engine optimization was a catch-phrase. There was a time when I didn’t even know what SEO was all about, but I soon became a convert when I saw that it could provide a better ROI than anything I’d ever seen (a belief I still hold). We’ve tried to follow God’s guidance in how we operate our company ever since.
Money Is NOT Our Focus
We recognize that any money Generation Web receives is a gift from God. Making money is not our primary focus. Instead, our aim is two-fold. Even if it means earning less, our goal is to first honor God and secondly to better our client’s businesses… and of course enjoy what we do in the process.
When speaking of the greatest commandment (in Mark 12:30-31), Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’. “There is no commandment greater than these.”
Over the years, we have turned down literally millions of dollars in new business income for a variety of reasons (i.e., due to God’s leading, a particular business relationship likely wouldn’t be a good fit). I also recall a few years ago when a client unknowingly overpaid us for a project, and we refunded them the difference.
We Want to Help People
We want to help your business make more money and thrive in today’s online world. But we also see beyond the numbers and statistics to the people, and our goal is to ultimately bless the individuals we work for.
When you are genuinely concerned about the people you serve, you look at situations in a different way. It’s not just about how much profit you can make but what strategy will provide optimal results for the client. You aren’t just concerned about your business but about other people and their companies. You look at each opportunity as a chance to serve others; therefore, serving God, which is our ultimate calling.
