Latitude (http://www.latitudegroup.com) today announces it has won a contract with hosting and data centre services group, iomart Group plc, following a competitive pitch, to provide SEO (http://www.latitudegroup.com/seo/) and PPC (http://www.latitudegroup.com/ppc/) for two of iomart Group’s core business divisions – http://www.iomarthosting.com and http://www.easyspace.com.

iomart Group is one of Europe’s largest business hosting specialists, offering services ranging from managed hosting and virtualisation, to back up and disaster recovery. Easyspace provides, amongst other services, web hosting and site development. iomart Group customers include brands such as BT, Vodafone, and Stagecoach. Both businesses are looking to maximise online visibility to potential customers.

Errol Vanderhost, managing director of Easyspace, said: “In today’s competitive online marketplace, you have to be on page one of the search engines for your key terms, through natural or paid listings, or else you will struggle to attract new business. Working with Latitude has given us the confidence we are approaching our entire search engine marketing as effectively as possible.

“We needed to find a digital marketing agency able to understand our overall business goals and marketing strategy, and then devise and implement a programme which would meet these. For us the key is having a team with expert knowledge, as well as the technology required to do the job.”

The deal further consolidates Latitude’s position as a leading digital marketing agency, and adds to an already impressive client list which includes Tesco and Bet365.

Alex Hoye, CEO of Latitude Group, said: “iomart Group is one of the UK’s largest hosting companies, and they’re only going to get bigger. This makes this an important account win for us, and gives us yet another chance to prove our holistic strength by running both Iomart’s SEO and PPC campaigns.”

This news comes hot on the heels of Latitude’s recent client wins including Land Rover and Virgin Games as well as a nomination for the Travolution awards.
