Alienation Digital, the Glasgow-based web design and digital marketing company, started 2009 with one of its busiest months ever, continued in the same vein all year long and ended with major contract wins in December.
Managing Director Neil Barr said: “We are delighted to be winning orders from customers old and new.
“The icing on the cake was coming in at 74th in the Top 100 agencies outside of London by the Recommended Agency Register, the first time we have made this prestigious listing.
“On top of that we have been ranked 3rd for percentage profit growth.
“We are particularly pleased that our performance enabled us to put something back last year, by running a free seminar and building a free website for charities.
“We were also able to help one of our established clients, Children’s Hospice Association Scotland, recover from a cowardly theft by replacing the £500 takings stolen from a charity fundraising concert.
“Now we are looking forward to an equally successful year in 2010, in which we will strengthen our digital marketing proposition, position FORT – our client referral solution – as the selection of choice for all CABs in the UK, open a London office, and double turnover.”
Alienation Digital’s December contract wins include:
The Beatson Institute for Cancer Research: Alienation launched the existing Beatson web site in 2008.
