Leeds-based business development agency, Blueberry Marketing Solutions, has experienced a 28 per cent year-on-year growth thanks to some major client wins.
The firm, which employs 21 members of staff, has nine years of almost year-on-year consecutive growth, and plans to further increase revenues by 12 per cent at the end of this financial year.
The company provides a wide range of marketing and business development services for a mix of private and public sector clients, including gathering customer and marketing insight, specialist data management services, and lead generation and nurturing.
Leeds College of Building and Epiphany are just some of the high profile Leeds-based clients it has delivered business development projects for in the last 12 months.
Staff retention is a key part of its business growth strategy, with the agency providing the highly regarded Chartered Institute of Marketing diplomas, which two staff members are currently undertaking.
Blueberry’s growth has also focused on harnessing its experience across markets and industries, ensuring growth will be sustainable and long term. Blueberry is developing its service set to provide clients with an integrated, end-to-end business development service.
Director, Faresh Maisuria, set up Blueberry in 2005 after spotting an opportunity to work with other likeminded individuals with an entrepreneurial mindset.
“I’m extremely proud of Blueberry’s business success and fully expect us to reach our ambitious target of another 12 per cent revenue increase by January 2015.
“Our growth strategy focusses on our expertise across a range of industries; ensuring growth will be sustainable long term and not vulnerable to external market changes.
“Consequently no one client accounts for more than 12 per centof our revenue, and our top ten customers account for less than 50 per cent of total income.
“We’re always looking to develop the talent of the future to ensure we continue to innovate.
“As a result our entire management team all started working here as graduates, and we work with local universities to provide employment opportunities to graduates.”
