Growth marketing agency The Growth Guys has announced plans for ‘significant expansion’ over the next twelve months as it approaches the end of an ‘impressive’ first year, during which it generated turnover of more than £200k, and an average 500% ROI for its clients.

A results-driven digital assets and advertising agency which works with clients to develop user and revenue growth, the York-based business has seen significant demand for its services since it was first established in November 2019.

Primarily focused on delivering projects on behalf of ‘ambitious upstarts and SMEs’ from across the country, The Growth Guys has already delivered on a range of projects for brands including Northern Bloc, Rebecca Rhoades Fashion, True Colours Tattoo and the Sweet Potato Spirit Company.

The business offers a comprehensive suite of services including social media advertising, asset management and asset development, to help organisations unlock growth potential.

Following the success to date, and a string of new client wins, co-founders Paul Fernandez and Karl Sandor say they are now looking to expand their team as they enter their second year of trading.

The move will see them add to their own extensive experience in digital marketing, working with numerous high-end Blue-Chip companies, as well as successfully launching and growing one of the largest art-fashion brands in Europe.

Paul, said: “We’ve had a really impressive first year, despite all of the challenges brought about by Covid-19.

“As most of our clients are ambitious, brand-led upstarts and SMEs, they really benefit from our expertise and the approach we can take to help them develop their digital assets and presence to drive user engagement to drive revenue.

“Our immersive and ROI driven approach has resulted in significant growth for some of the country’s most exciting and innovative new brands, and we know that there are many other business out there – especially those operating in e-commerce, fashion, and luxury travel industries – that would benefit.

“In order to meet that demand and to be able to deliver against a growing customer base, we anticipate significant expansion in the months ahead.”

Karl added: “The unprecedented nature of the last 12 months has put a spot-light on how many customers and individuals are engaging with business online through social media instead of traditional forms of advertising and content generation.

“Obviously lockdown came into force early on in our journey, and so helping our clients through the impact of the pandemic was a real part of our motivation to put our money where our mouth was and deliver based on results.

“That resonates with the brands we work with.

“At a time when businesses are looking to evolve to not only survive, but to truly thrive, we like to think of ourselves as a strategic partner.

“The months ahead will be a really exciting part of our journey, and we’re looking forward to seeing what is in store.”
