It’s safe to say we’ve had quite the year in 2018! Since we opened our doors in March there’s been some big changes, a few new faces and new surroundings. As we head into the New Year, we want to take a look back at some of the highlights of 2018 and give you a teaser of what’s to come in 2019… New Staff Visitors to Acquiro HQ over the last few months will have noticed that we have a LOT of new faces in the team. Since March we’ve gained 15 new team members across a wide range of digital services including SEO, PPC, Graphic Design, Business Development and our brand new social media service (more on that later!). Every member of the Acquiro team has a strong digital background and we’re excited to keep building our team! New Clients We’re working with a wide number of clients across a huge range of industries and we’re looking forward to building relationships with more great companies in 2019. We’ve seen massive success through our digital marketing strategies and our client reviews and testimonials say it all. New Offices Don’t mention another office move to the Acquiro team, we’re all experts at packing up our desks at this point! We’ve grown considerably since our days in one small office in Fusion Hive, moving quickly across two offices and finally into our new home overlooking the beautiful River Tees. We’re not getting too comfortable though, with new job vacancies going live in the New Year, we’re on the hunt for a new Acquiro HQ as we speak. Fast Track Huge congratulations to one of our clients Lusso Stone who are celebrating their inclusion in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100. The Teesside based bathroom specialist has ranked 18 in the Fast Track 100 for 2018, the annual league table that brings together the top 100 privately owned companies in Britain. Since partnering with Lusso Stone we’ve helped double their revenue through our digital marketing strategies and we’re delighted to see their success recognised by Fast Track 100. Websites 2018 saw us take on our first graphic designer Rikky Pink who has helped launch our web design service. We’ve already launched our first wave of websites and we’re set to continue into the New Year as we add more skilled designers and developers to the Acquiro Team.

Give us a call to find out more 0800 193 4199. £1m Turnover We’re on track for a predicted £1m turnover in our first year, a fantastic achievement considering we started as a two-man operation back in March. We’re expecting further growth in 2019 as we continue to grow as a team. The North East is fast becoming a hub for digital marketing talent and we want to make sure we’re offering our clients the very best service from the best people in the industry. A 5* place to work One thing we’re incredibly proud of is our commitment to creating a great workspace for our team. Alongside great benefits, we make sure that we cultivate all of the talent in the Acquiro office and it’s been a busy 6 months of marketing conferences, training and collaborative working to build the new Acquiro Digital brand which is launching in 2019. It’s an exciting time to be part of Team Acquiro and we take staff feedback seriously, whether it’s changing the lunchtime pizza supplier or handing over controls of the office playlist! New Website We’re getting ready to launch the brand new Acquiro Digital website and social media channels in 2018. We’ve worked creating an identity that fits our values as an agency, no gimmicks – just a transparent service that’s designed to get results. We’ll soon be releasing details for our launch date, we can’t wait for you to see what we’ve come up with. First Birthday 2019 will see us celebrate our first birthday, although with over 50 years combined experience in the team we definitely don’t feel like the new kid on the block! We’re already looking forward to toasting a great year with our staff, clients and friends so keep your eyes peeled for your party invite.
