Stockton-based digital agency Forrest Digital has welcomed new blood to the team as part of the company’s push for growth in 2018.
Isaac Sharp, a recent graduate from Teesside University, has joined the team as a digital marketing executive in an effort to increase the company’s marketing capacity.
Forrest Digital, based at Fusion Hive, is a specialist in digital strategy, including SEO and Google Ads, and in the last year has helped numerous companies increase sales throughout the UK and Europe.
Isaac – pictured above (centre) with managing director Iain Forrest and digital executive Steph Shenava – said: “The learning I undertook at university has complimented my own learning and I’m now able to apply it to a real-world marketing scenario.
“University was great for introducing me to Google Analytics which is a key tool that I use in this job. Certainly, the fundamentals of marketing will always be of use and now I’m able to analyse data for real clients.
“It’s great fun seeing the same kinds of numbers and statistics I was looking at before but on a much larger scale. I’m now looking at tens of thousands instead of hundreds.
“I want to use this opportunity to learn as much about the business and find my strengths to focus on to help build a sustainable career and to make Forrest Digital as successful as I can.”
Since its inception in 2003, Forrest Digital has seen year-on-year growth and is aiming to increase turnover to £250,000 in 2018.
Mr Forrest added: “Initially the gap in the business that we were looking to fill was primarily focused on analytics.
“The way that we operate, we don’t just send users to a client’s website and hope for the best, we make sure from the outset what is important to the client ensuring we have a system in place that is capable of measuring that.
“Isaac was brought in to expand that area of the business and our capacity and abilities and to take us in new directions. I hope he can find his own place with us and grow to be the best he can be.”
