Heath resident digital agency Aqueous Digital is celebrating its fifth anniversary with record turnover and plans to triple in size over the next three years.
Aqueous Digital was established in June 2011 by Jonathan Guy, who on Thursday was a keynote speaker on search engine optimisation and digital marketing at the International Festival for Business 2016 in Liverpool.
The business generated revenues of £300,000 in the year to October and aims to reach £1m by the end of 2019.
Alongside SEO and digital marketing services, Aqueous provides its clients with pay-per-click and reputation management.
Aqueous, which has Google Partner status, employs six staff and is based at The Heath Business & Technical Park in Runcorn .
Its nationwide client base ranges from professional services firms such as solicitors and accountants to hire companies, colleges, online retailers and IT support businesses.
Mr Guy, who has more than 30 years’ experience of sales and marketing and previously spent over 20 years at Yell Group, said: “We have achieved steady and sustainable growth in our first five years and we are now looking to accelerate our expansion.
“The digital sector has seen massive growth and this is likely to continue.
“Over 50% of searches in the UK are now on mobile devices, almost 20% of searches on Android phones are by voice. This fundamentally changes the way we have to optimise websites to help our clients’ rankings.
“At Aqueous we are very confident that the future will continue to provide opportunities to deliver additional value for our customers.
“Digital is becoming more complicated by the day, but our packages take away the worry that businesspeople have in understanding and keeping up with the changes.
“Added to that, we have invested a significant sum in technology over the past 12 months to enable us to double our output and keep ahead of the competition.”
