Portsmouth based search marketing company Vertical Leap continues to flourish with another great year that has delivered sixty-five per cent annual growth.

2010-11 has been a big year for the business, which provides search marketing services including search engine optimisation (SEO), paid search (PPC, Display, Mobile, Remarketing), content and social media marketing.

Amongst its major achievements, Vertical Leap expanded its content marketing services portfolio with Evergreen content, Social Media content, and News content. This increase in services comes in direct response to the growing need to integrate content with search marketing and social media.

The company has also broadened paid search services, adding Display, Mobile and Remarketing to PPC, and has achieved impressive results for customers using paid search and social media this year.

The move to expand the search marketing service offering has meant the addition of ten new staff over the year, taking the number to thirty-five.

Another highlight of the year was the creation of a vibrant new brand identity for Vertical Leap, showcased via a new website that went live in September 2011.

One of the most significant events demonstrating company growth was the launch of a new brand, Red Rocket Media. The new brand was created to service online marketers, providing content marketing strategies for businesses using websites and social media to grow their audience, build reputation and attract and engage more customers. Since the launch in September 2011, the Red Rocket Media team have been building relationships with high profile PR and creative agencies, as well as prominent B2C businesses.

In October 2011 Vertical Leap celebrated ten years of industry-leading services and innovation in search marketing. When the company was founded in 2001 it was to provide honest, fairly-priced and effective services to customers, a philosophy that has continued to appeal the market, proven with a 97% customer retention rate.

Matt Hopkins, Managing Director has no plans to slow down for the coming year:

‘2011 has been another great year for Vertical Leap. To be successful with search marketing today you need more than traditional methods and it is becoming harder than ever for businesses to market themselves effectively online. Our content-driven approach provides customers with everything they need to gain visibility in every corner of their market. We have expanded our services to meet the needs of our market, and have ambitious plans to continue this growth over the next twelve months.’
