A HOMEGROWN digital marketing company had more than one reason to celebrate as it entered its 10th successful year in business despite the current global pandemic.

Aqueous Digital, set up by Northwich couple Jonathan and Emma Guy, hit a major milestone in time for its latest birthday, which should see the company reach its aim of a £1million turnover by the end of this year.

In May, at the peak of the coronavirus outbreak, the company achieved a recurring revenue target five months ahead of schedule.

Managing director Jonathan said: “So many businesses have struggled during lockdown, but we’ve used it as an opportunity to work with people and adapt their digital marketing plans.

“By collaborating closely with our existing customers and identifying new ways to generate income, we’ve played a part in helping them to survive the most difficult trading conditions.”

Alongside SEO and digital marketing services, Aqueous provides its clients with pay-per-click and reputation managemnt. Its international customer base, of solicitors, accountants, online retailers, and manufacturers has prospered despite the impact of Covid-19.

Jonathan is keen to praise the company’s staff and freelancers who have worked at home since mid-March when the company’s Sutton Weaver office closed temporarily to comply with pandemic restrictions.

He said: “We are immensely proud of our team’s efforts – they have been truly amazing, going above and beyond to support our customers during the crisis.

“The fact we are thriving is a reflection of their hard work.”

The company is now looking to the future and plans to add to its technical and sales capability this summer.

Jonathan, of The Crescent in Northwich, added: “We forecast back in 2016 that we would reach the million-pound landmark by the end of 2020, and now have an incredibly strong foundation on which to build that will help us do exactly that.

“It positions us perfectly too for the future in a fast-changing marketplace that rewards those who prove they can continuously innovate.”
