Digital agency 9xb has launched a new digital marketing division, following high profile business wins and rapid growth.

The division, headed up by account director Gyles Seward, will employ a full-service approach to digital marketing, providing search engine optimisation (SEO), pay per click advertising, email and social media marketing to existing and new clients.

The Harrogate-based agency’s core focus has traditionally been website development and strategy, but over recent years the market has become increasingly saturated. The company’s digital marketing turnover has doubled since the turn of the year and, with a consistent 36 per cent growth rate month on month, the decision was taken to make a serious investment in a complete in-house department.

The launch comes off the back of a number of high profile clients wins, including online electrical retailer Electrical Discount UK and Made4Fighters, a supplier of mixed martial arts clothing in Europe.

Gyles said: “We’re excited to build on the success we’ve enjoyed with high profile brands like Marks & Spencer and Hi-Tec and push a broader range of services, such as SEO, PPC and social media marketing, and we’re really looking forward to delivering some tangible business results for our clients.”
