AT JUST four years old Agency51 is building a reputation among North Yorkshire's most recognised digital marketing agencies.

The business started its life as a digital marketing arm of award winning e-commerce web development specialists PureNet, and after providing hugely successful digital marketing campaigns for PureNet’s clients, branched out to become its own company in 2013.

Since then, the company has doubled in size and now employs a diverse range of staff from apprentices to technical SEO experts, designers, developers, conversion rate optimisation specialists and content writers, and is now entering the Small Business of the Year category.

In particular, the business says the last 12 months have proven to be a testament to Agency51’s success and potential for growth in the years to come.

Agency51 specialises in working with local brands and small businesses, helping to raise their profile online as they attempt to market themselves against larger competitors.

This has been evidenced in the acquisition of such local clients as York Coffee, Fishers’ Catering Supplies and more recently, award winning vehicle leasing specialists Autohorn Fleet Services. Since October 2016, Agency51 has helped Autohorn Fleet Services not only to increase its online profile with a new website design project, but also through the setup of its newest brand, Clear Car Leasing, as well as catalysing a huge increase in enquiries for the growing brand.

Working with this local business has helped to cement Agency51 as a proud York-based digital media agency, and the team have taken this even further by helping out with local events, such as sponsoring the hugely popular Micklegate Run.

However, Agency51 also boasts a reputation with businesses further afield, having worked with clients in Hampshire, Buckinghamshire, Bristol, Ipswich, London, Manchester and even Valencia.

Agency51’s vast client base is indicative of its versatile staff team, who are open to new challenges in both B2C and B2B industries, from energy suppliers to uniform designers, equestrian tack shops, airport security experts, cycling enthusiasts, electrical wholesalers and much more. With more than 50 years’ combined experience, Agency51’s team put lead generation and sales at the heart of everything they do in helping clients.
