Marketing agency targets 45% growth after expanding to larger offices

Tees Business Digital Media Pack

A digital marketing agency is targeting 45 per cent growth in sales this year after expanding to larger offices – as it celebrates its seventh year in operation.

Founded in 2014, Middlesbrough-based Surge Marketing Solutions is already celebrating a year of substantial growth, with 10 new employees joining the firm in the last six months despite the challenges of Covid.

The agency – which specialises in SEO, videography, PR & Outreach, Google Ads and more – says sales are projected to grow 45 per cent in 2021, with a net profit of 30 per cent.

Starting from boutique beginnings seven years ago, Surge now works with nationwide clients, offering bespoke services with the ability to market to audiences while improving brand awareness.

Surge, built on the back of developing bespoke marketing plans, has targeted new and existing markets.

The firm has benefited from director David Porter’s previous experiences, which have included spells working for other digital agencies and even owning a restaurant business.

“I’ve always understood the need to implement much more effective digital marketing services,” said David.

Amidst all three lockdowns, Surge’s capability allowed them to win just under £500,000-worth of new clients, which has enabled them to expand to newer, bigger offices at Riverside Park Industrial Estate in Middlesbrough.

“We are fortunate enough to have thrived through the pandemic and I am just excited to see what we are going to achieve in the next year,” added David.

“I put the success down to the constantly evolving creativity and dynamic service that Surge provides.

“It’s crazy to think that I started this business from a room in my house with nothing but a phone and a PC. Now we have 18 amazing people that make up the Surge team.”
