Last year saw significant new product development. Footprints is an innovative new product currently which allows clients in travel, retail and other sectors to prove ROI for digital marketing used to drive footfall to a physical location. We have introduced innovative blockchain solutions into programmatic media buying and a new data-driven digital crisis management product, PROTECT.

Work highlights from the past year include our game-changing partnership with a major UK tour operator, bringing together PPC, SEO and PR under a single strategy to reverse a multi-year decline in search and conversion performance. In 12 months we delivered growth in ROI of 354% and uplift in website conversions of 17.8%, resulting in sales growth across a five-strong list of key destinations.

Meanwhile, our focus for the next 12 months will see us continue to develop three key areas:

  1. Ongoing new product development and innovation in integrated digital solutions
  2. Growth in digital in healthcare & pharma due to the scale of our business in this sector and extensive relationships with the biggest global companies
  3. Process automation. We also have projects underway looking at work which could be better replicated by machine learning and AI. This will allow repetitive low level account handling tasks to be transferred, freeing up staff to input at more strategic and rewarding levels.
