Strong digital business and new wins deliver significant growth as BIG powers ahead
The PR and digital marketing agency has successfully delivered several high-profile, integrated campaigns since the beginning of its financial year in June.
These include Aberdeen Football Club’s AURORA campaign to demonstrate support for its new stadium plans and the launch of a luxury residential development, Park Quadrant Residences in Glasgow, for Ambassador Group.
In addition, BIG has secured new business across a range of sectors, including food and drink, sport, and energy, including new assignments for First Group, luxury ice cream brand Equi’s, the European Tour during the Aberdeen Asset Scottish Open Golf and decommissioning start-up Well-Safe Solutions.
BIG Director, Zoe Ogilvie, said: “The last few months have been among the strongest in our history, with major wins across all our offices. In Aberdeen, we’re seeing the market gradually recovering and we are picking up some really great PR, digital and design projects.
“Meanwhile, we’ve gained a real foothold in the north-west of England where our Manchester-based teams have been on a winning streak, securing a 12-month contract with architecture and building consultancy AHR and an appointment from the UK division of heating and renewable energy products manufacturer Steibel Eltron, among others.”
“Our digital income is up 65% year-on-year and our integrated approach to digital, design and PR has led to a stream of marketing-led projects which have generated impressive results for clients. We recently embarked on a rebrand of our own to reflect this transition.”
In addition to the new business, BIG has retained and secured expanded remits for clients AREG (Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group), Scottish Rugby, OPITO, Stewart Milne Group, Kelvinside Academy and VIBES (The Scottish Environment Business Awards).
The agency is also building a strong presence in the high-growth start-up and emerging companies arena, working with firms such as Find a Player, Voomfit and Tag Digital.
The agency has made seven new hires in the period from June to October, bringing its total headcount to 102.
