London, 10th November 2009 – dotDigital Group PLC, a full service digital marketing company quoted on the PLUS market, has this week announced strong growth figures, despite a challenging economic climate. The Group, which owns leading email service provider dotMailer, has published its report and accounts for the 14 month period ending 30th June 2009, revealing a revenue increase of 91% to £4.7m*, driven by an aggressive expansion and new business strategy.
Customer numbers have increased 113% from 1,072 to 2,282, over the last 14 months, with the Group adding a roster of high profile clients including DHL, Kodak, Nationwide and EDF Energy. The growing client base is being serviced by the company’s team of 55 people located across its three offices in London, Croydon and Manchester.
Over the last three years, the dotDigital Group PLC has transformed itself from a niche website design agency and email service provider into one of the UK’s leading full service digital marketing agencies. In that time, a series of new business units have been created and the Group is now made up of four main brands, each with high level expertise in key digital marketing areas:
dotMailer – a market leading email marketing platform supported by a team of dedicated and passionate professionals
dotCommerce – a new ecommerce solution, providing a flexible bespoke build experience for the cost of an off-the-shelf package
dotEditor – a content management system enabling clients to edit and manage their online content
dotAgency – the Group’s in-house creative agency team specialising in website design, build, digital marketing strategy and SEO
Peter Simmonds, CEO of dotDigital Group PLC, said: “We pre-empted the shift in marketing spend from traditional offline media to online digital marketing, and our strategy to expand the business to encompass a full-service approach has ensured resiliency in the face of a difficult economic climate. By setting and pursuing aggressive goals and focussing single-mindedly on developing innovative products alongside exceptional support, we have been able to grow our client base and open up new revenue channels.”
