Manchester ecommerce agency Fluid Digital saw 23 per cent revenue growth at the end of last year as its annual sales topped £1million for the first time.
Managing Director, Adam Hindle, said a number of strategic hires during 2019, coupled with a clutch of new site launches and support and marketing contract wins, had contributed to the significant growth in its financial year ending 31 December.
Hires have included Nick Handley as Head of Performance Marketing in October, Carl Walker as Account Director in April and Joshua Hobson as Marketing Manager in May. In addition, Roman Leshchenko, who formerly worked as a developer for Magento in Kiev, Ukraine relocated to the UK for Fluid in October.
Project launches have included Magento 2 Commerce sites for skincare brand Augustinus Bader and jewellery brand Chlobo. Fluid has also worked with Wynsors World of Shoes, Lakeland Leather, Moda Furnishings and Trutex.
Adam commented: “Revenue growth of 23 per cent is excellent and I’m absolutely delighted that Fluid is thriving, continues to win new clients and delivers websites and campaigns that significantly increase our client’s sales.
“It’s a testament to our team that we have achieved this growth because they work incredibly hard and are extremely dedicated to our clients.
“It’s been a tricky time for our market as some businesses were holding off on giving projects the go-ahead due to the uncertainty around Brexit. It’s very competitive and that’s why we have to ensure that we are constantly evolving and keeping in-step with new trends such as alternative payment methods like Klarna. Our aim is to have experts in the major strands of ecommerce to cover all bases, offer a knowledgeable and experience-driven service and ensure we remain at the forefront of the industry.”
Adam added that Fluid, which is based on Hilton Street in the Northern Quarter, had exciting announcements to make about new service launches that will enable them to target more clients and will be key to future revenue growth.
