Further is a 10-year-old digital marketing agency with bases in Norwich, Cambridge and London. Our HQ in Norwich is a converted Victorian church, which is why, combined with our background in SEO, it has come to be known as 'The Search Church'.
The company was set up by Zak Ireson and Steve Jaggard in 2006 with a view to making marketing more measurable and accountable.
Since then, we have grown to become an RAR Top 40 UK independent digital marketing agency and developed specialisms in data-led digital campaigns blending SEO, PPC, paid social and content marketing.
We like to think we do things properly - from our analytical approach and creating your strategy, right through to providing you with campaigns that are measurable and set to meet pre-agreed goals. And, now and again, we’re also quite a fun bunch to work with.
From a two-man start-up in 2006, to one of the UK’s leading independent specialist search agencies today, we’ve assembled an ever-growing multi-skilled team we wouldn’t swap with any other.

Our clients say we’re an agency that delivers more than just results.
Here’s what you can expect when collaborating with us.
At Further your campaigns are guided by insight. Our data and analytics team interrogate and translate your data, benchmark your performance against your competitors, map your audiences, define and financially model your key areas of opportunity.
When we work with a new client we want to get under the skin of the business – to understand its products, aspirations, culture and competitive landscape. We encourage the team to ask the critical questions and invite new clients to a full ‘on-boarding’ workshop.
As a Further client you are assigned an Account Strategist who is responsible for your campaign strategy and provides your key point of communication – from day-to-day comms to results reporting and regular campaign reviews.
Yes, we like to work to carefully-planned strategies with pre-agreed and realistic KPIs. But we’re no shrinking violets. We won't be slow in coming forward if we spot an emerging trend or stumble upon that killer idea we believe will add value.
We analyse and review your campaigns on an ongoing basis. By doing this we can be more flexible and make the necessary tweaks and adjustments so that traffic, engagement and conversion are all working together in a cycle of continuous improvement.
We’ve learned how to work harder and smarter in an ever-evolving industry. Keeping up isn’t enough, staying ahead is what counts. Further has been built on the success of our clients.
