Whilst the number 13 is often regarded as unlucky, the team at here at digital marketing agency Ascensor, have bucked superstition and completed our thirteenth year in business on a high!
Here's just a couple of the things we've achieved in our thirteenth year...
Like many companies, 2020 has presented our team with a number of challenges. However, we quickly understood the needs of our clients and embraced the opportunity! Many of our current and new clients have needed to scale up their online sales and servicing capabilities. This has created an increased demand for our services, and we have been able to advise on and deliver our clients’ digital transformations.
We decided to move the entire Ascensor operation to home-working before the government announced this requirement back in March. We have a fully tested business continuity plan in place as part of ISO27001 and this allowed for a seamless transition.
Following this, we also passed the first stage of our ISO27001 accreditation!
The growth in new customer acquisition meant that our team expanded from a headcount of 19 to 30 in the past 12 months, with 9 new colleagues recruited since the Spring lockdown period!
This brought the challenge of making sure that our new starters quickly felt a part of the team, whilst meeting 'virtually'! However, we've all successfully come together in these tough times.
On top of our office move, fast-growing team and new clients, we also completed the acquisition of Bradford based web design and app development business Webposse, and web hosting firm ClaretMedia LLP. This acquisition has added more than 70 small firms to our client base, which we can help to grow with our digital marketing and support services.
As you may well know, we also became Leeds United Platinum Partners.
We’re proud to support Leeds United, the biggest brand in Leeds, a Premier League football club and our neighbours.
From Silver Partner to Platinum, we're thrilled to be associated with Leeds United Football Club as we’ve been there all the way to the Premier League. However, our commercial involvement takes nothing away from being fans, and in the year of promotion, we’re gutted that we can’t go to the games…
