Leeds-based digital marketing agency, Blue Digital, is continuing to grow its digital offering with 3 new executive hires across web development, sales and digital PR.
Despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Blue Digital has seen demand rise for its SEO and web development provisions. This growth has allowed Blue Digital to expand their workforce by over 25 per cent in the past six months. The company have also recently added in-house digital PR and content marketing as new service offerings due to high demand.
Leah Wood has been appointed by Blue Digital as digital PR & content executive. Leah brings six years’ experience in PR and marketing to the role, having previously worked in-house for a printing company and at press release distribution company, RealWire.
Leah will produce content for many of Blue Digital’s clients and also help to implement the digital PR offering at Blue Digital.
Blue Digital has also welcomed Matt Dove into the role of website developer. He previously worked at Bradford-based marketing agency Peardrop Creative.
Matt’s main focus will be on maintaining and updating client websites, creating websites for new clients and automating and improving web development processes.
Sebastian Heap has also recently joined Blue Digital as a marketing & sales executive. He has many years’ experience of working within a sales environment, including within the manufacturing industry.
Sebastian’s main focus will be on bringing in new clients and working with existing clients to offer marketing investment and guidance information. He will also help clients to utilise SEO, PPC and email marketing to drive their sales leads.
The scale-up has also led to commercial director, Mark Ambler, taking on a full-time role within the business. Mark will focus on growing and developing the business as a whole, bringing in new clients and developing relationships with existing customers.
Mark said: “It’s been a difficult time for many businesses, but with so many people sat at home online, the demand for digital marketing and PR services has never been higher. We’re thrilled to have seen an upsurge in business at Blue Digital that has allowed us to expand, despite the COVID pandemic. We’re now well on our way to becoming the digital agency of choice for ambitious businesses in Yorkshire.”
Managing director of Blue Digital, Roy Moody, said: “Ultimately we are here to help our customers grow. By having a strong digital presence, the more successful our customers become, and in turn, the more successful Blue Digital becomes. Despite the lockdowns we’ve faced, we’re really pleased we’ve been able to expand Blue Digital and look forward to growing the business even further in the near future.”
