Despite the ups and downs of the economy, the Search industry has continued to record a positive growth in marketing budgets, particularly when compared with ‘traditional channels’.
Testament to this has been the increasing success and reputation of Further, which has now been officially recognised by industry-leading magazine, New Media Age, as one of the Top Search Marketing Agencies in the UK in its 2010 Marketing Services Guide – and the only search agency in the East of England to make the list.
Coming onto the list for the first time at no.25, this ranks us alongside some very well respected and long-established agencies – quite something for a company that started less than four years ago – and in fact sees us amongst the top ten agencies for Natural Search (SEO). Of the companies ranked above us on the newly-published list, only one is actually younger than Further.
‘This is great news for the whole team and is a big plus for us as a business’, says Further’s Search Marketing Manager Chris Gedge. ‘We’re told by clients that they enjoy our more creative and accessible approach to what we do, and we’ve invested heavily in recruiting and training the best people to ensure they get the results they demand, so its great to be recognised in this manner. We’re all looking forward to seeing what can be achieved this coming year as the recession finally lifts’.
This latest news tops off what has been quite a past 12 months for Further, having won the EDP New Business of the Year in late 2009, and been listed as one of the Future50 companies to watch in the Eastern Region.
A big thank you also to all of our clients for making this possible! We couldn’t have done it without you!!
