In October 2015, Mediaworks was named the Fastest Growing Small Business of 2015 at Ward Hadaway’s Fastest 50 Awards.

Just over six months later and the award-winning digital marketing agency is still expanding. With a growing headcount, exciting client portfolio and fit-to-burst trophy cabinet, there are no plans to stop either. Here, we review the agency’s current performance and future plans:

Recognised industry-wide

Of course, the agency’s exceptional work hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, Mediaworks has become something of a regular on industry award shortlists and 2016 is no different.

So far this year, the company has been included in the Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies and nominated for Best Large SEO Agency at the European Search Awards. Most recently, the agency has been shortlisted for the Best Digital Marketing Campaign and Best Use of Search and CRO awards at the prestigious Big Chip Awards 2016.

A growing team

People are intrinsic to the current performance and future growth of Mediaworks. Recognising the changing needs of the agency, the company has been restructured to include four new directors, who will support the business during its current period of rapid growth.

The agency has also recruited across all delivery teams, welcoming 30 new recruits to the business since the start of 2016. From SEO Executives to Developers and Content Strategists, each department has been strengthened by the addition of new staff, helping to lay the foundations for continued growth in the future.

As well as running a successful apprenticeship program, Mediaworks is still actively recruiting fresh talent to further bolster their team.

A portfolio to be proud of

As the agency has grown, so has Mediaworks’ reputation for excellence. Widely considered an industry leader, the agency’s portfolio reads as a who’s who of successful brands. And, as a growing number of businesses make Mediaworks their first choice, their client list looks set to expand even further in the coming months.

From multi-national Blue-Chip clients to household names, the agency delivers a range of services, including Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Paid Search (PPC) and Web Development, across a number of industries, helping to bolster digital profiles and strengthen online performance.

Despite its success on a national and indeed global scale, Mediaworks remains proud of its North East roots. The agency recently became the digital partner of the Cairn Hotel Group, another locally based powerhouse.

 Speaking of the agency’s incredible performance, Brett Jacobson, Mediaworks’ Managing Director, said:

“We’re not even halfway through 2016 and it’s already shaping up to be a monumental year. From our growing headcount to impressive portfolio and award nominations, we are successfully paving the way to meet our future growth plans. It’s an incredibly exciting time for everyone here at Mediaworks”.
