A Philadelphia-based internet marketing firm is offering an apolitical haven for the pro-Donald Trump clients recently shunned by the chief executive of 1st in SEO.

1SEO.com Digital Agency issued a press release on Friday after people started confusing the company with the Albuquerque-based firm 1st in SEO, whose CEO Mathew Blanchfield recently told his Republican and pro-Trump clients they were no longer welcome at his company.

In a statement, 1SEO.com Digital Agency CEO Lance Bachmann firmly rejected Mr. Blanchfield’s partisan move.

“We do not hold politically-biased views that would prohibit us from helping anyone succeed in the digital space,” Mr. Bachmann said.

1SEO.com does not “subscribe to the politically charged views” Mr. Blanchfield expressed, the press release stated. “In fact, 1SEO.com Digital Agency is nationally renowned for their unbiased and inclusive approach to client onboarding and relationship building. Furthermore, the firm is pleased to invite all former clients of 1st in SEO to inquire via phone at 215-946-1046 regarding how to have their online marketing needs met despite the unfortunate circumstances that have come about as a result of 1st in SEO’s actions.”

The statement came after Mr. Blanchfield’s appearance on Fox News, in which he remained unapologetic for telling his Republican clients to leave the firm.

“If you are a Republican, voted for Donald Trump or support Donald Trump, in any manner, you are not welcome at 1st In SEO and we ask you to leave our firm,” he wrote in a letter to clients. “To our Democrat and Progressive clients, we want to recommit to you that we will continue to work diligently to improve your internet marketing results in this quickly changing world.”
