Splitpixel, digital marketing agency based in Huddersfield

Growth prompts relocation of Yorkshire digital agency

Digital marketing agency Splitpixel has relocated to new office space at Heritage Exchange, Huddersfield, following revenue uplift of 20% in 2016-17.

The company – which had been based at The Media Centre since its establishment in 2008 – grew to an 11-strong team this spring, on the back of significant client wins, including employee and consumer engagement specialist Sodexo.

Founders Greg Smuk and Charlie Herke therefore sought a bigger space to accommodate the imminent hunt for new colleagues. They are currently on the lookout for a new project director and skilled Magento web developer, for example, to support a forward order book that signals further 20% growth before the year-end.

“Marketing is sometimes considered a bit of a subjective profession, but we’ve always been a data-driven agency, which I think has helped us carve out a reputation in the crowded B2B marketplace,” comments Charlie. “We’re big on bottom line benefits too, which means we consistently attract enquiries from £10m+ turnover companies as well as complex, multi-brand organisations.

“The next six to nine months are looking particularly positive, hence the need to grow our team – as well as the space around us!”

The move to the new 1,400 sq. ft. space in the converted textile mill in Lindley marks the start of preparations for Splitpixel’s 10th anniversary.

“The world of digital marketing has changed a lot in the last 10 years,” adds Greg. “Clients are demanding more integrations, more intuitive personalisation, and a user experience that drives more conversions. A whole host of both technical and creative skills are therefore needed to achieve these criteria.

“But despite these challenges, we’ve succeeded in creating a culture that attracts some of the finest talent in the North. And with our vibrant new office, we’re even better placed to offer colleagues an inspiring place to work.”

Providing services ranging from web design and development to SEO, inbound marketing and brand regeneration, Splitpixel now has more than 100 clients and a retention rate of 93%. The agency is also an official partner of both HubSpot and Google.
