Launched 15 years ago, today Ciphers Digital is a full-scale digital marketing agency that offers small businesses online visibility solutions through a client-centric approach.
How Ciphers Digital Creates Impact for its Clients
The Ciphers Digital team offers several digital services, such as digital marketing, social media marketing, website design, and web development.
However, its core interest is helping businesses rank in the SERPs organically. That makes SEO their primary niche of operations.
According to Mike Rux, Ciphers Digital is “committed to making a positive impact on our clients and the world around us, and we are always looking for new ways to help our clients succeed.”

How Ciphers Digital Overcame its Greatest Challenges
Ciphers Digital had its fair share of hosting struggles before they found Cloudways. As the agency says:
“We struggled with spending too much time resolving hosting problems. Not to mention the configuration of each setting on the server for optimization & security. The upkeep and maintenance was also consuming a lot of our time.”
The only solution to the problem was to look for better hosting platforms. Ciphers Digital decided to switch to Cloudways and that proved to be a viable solution to the hosting issues.
“We found by switching over to a better hosting platform, our server response time increased. We have had such an easy transition to CloudWays and are very impressed with the hosting and the hands-free approach.”
Because of this transition, the agency now spends more time on the digital marketing needs of their clients and gets to produce better results.

There were other internal challenges as well that Ciphers Digital talked about with us. Like how they have a different set of challenges with each campaign and how it’s tackled with a strategy and a plan of execution.
Another challenge arose when the pandemic hit. The agency quickly had to move its operations from an in-house setting to remote. It was done by implementing the best available software and communication platforms available.
The agency continues to operate remotely today. Ciphers Digital believes that this decision helps their team better manage their family life while delivering quality results for their clients.
What Was Ciphers Digital’s Most Challenging Project?
For Ciphers Digital, turnkey ecommerce projects came with a steep learning curve. The challenge lay in enabling business owners to monitor, manage and improve their inventory. Simultaneously, they had to work their own magic on the sites and improve their online visibility.
The agency figured out ways to help store owners track their progress and manage the inventory, while Ciphers Digital worked on the projects to attract relevant audiences. As they say:
“This keeps the business engaged and allows them to do what they do best while we work on advancing their sales and marketing!”
How Cloudways Contributed to Ciphers Digital’s Growth
According to the agency: “Cloudways has been a great manageable hosting service that lets our agency provide fast hosting of websites and applications.
We have benefited in the extreme from the easy user experience of the Cloudways dashboard. It allows us to add everything we need to manage our clients websites and applications.
WE LOVE YOU! Thus far.”
