Growth period leads to York city centre expansion for digital marketing agency

Edge45, the York-based digital marketing agency, is set to move from Hiscox Business Club, to a new, larger office in the city centre.

Established in April 2015 by managing director Colin Docherty, Edge45 now employs three full time staff with plans to recruit another two people in the near future.

Edge45 moved into the Hiscox Business Club, a free office space hub for small businesses, in April 2016.

Following a year of significant growth, the agency has now outgrown the shared space available at Hiscox, prompting the move to larger private office space within ACollective on Pavement, York.

Edge45 began with a focus on search engine optimisation (SEO) but with a holistic approach to digital marketing the recent expansion has allowed its range of services to also increase.

The agency now offers a suite of digital services from email marketing and social media management to Pay Per Click advertising, conversion rate optimisation as well as traditional SEO.

Colin Docherty, managing Director, said: “Thanks to the leg up we were given by Hiscox and the support of the wider York business community we have been able to secure some great clients.

“My vision for Edge45 has always been to offer a complete online marketing service to our clients – SEO just isn’t a stand-alone service anymore - and as our team continues to grow and develop, so does our depth and range of expertise meaning that the value we can offer our clients is ever increasing.

“Digital marketing is such a valuable tool to businesses and it’s our aim to help them to take full advantage of the opportunities.”

Edge45 is currently recruiting for a SEO account manager and digital content specialist.
