Ross Green, Managing Director - Embryo Digital
We were voted COMBA’s ‘Digital & Creative Business of The Year 2018’. We hope that it was because we aim to always provide a personable approach that utilises the diverse talent within our team to create campaigns that make a significant difference. We’ve won some other awards, too. And maybe some more in the future, who knows?Find out why
Our journey began when Ross Green, our managing director, decided to strike out on his own after a successful stint as a Senior Business Development Manager for a well-known marketing agency in Manchester.
Setting up Embryo Digital as a marketing consultancy at the very tail end of 2014, he started to help new and 'up and coming' businesses to create digital campaigns and projects.
By 2016, with our services in high demand and a growing client list, our first employee, Charlotte was hired as a Digital Marketing Consultant.
Ross and Charlotte grew the client base by 150% year on year and won our first international client.
Deciding together that business expansion meant bringing services in house, they decided to move from their small office on Lloyd Street in January 2018 to our new premises in Old Trafford.
After a year in our new office we are now a full-service agency with 8 team members in house.
In November 2018 we were delighted to win the Downtown in Business Award for Digital & Creative Business of The Year.
Our plans for 2019 were to grow to over 10 people. We had grown to 14 people by the end of February! In January 2019, we welcomed several new staff that formed a great new backbone for the company, with even more coming the month after.
Our client base exploded by the end of January, and we started to work with some large clients and well-known brand names.
Quarter one, 2019 was our best ever to date - by some distance. This was due to the addition of fantastic staff members, and our solutions providing huge upturns in business for our existing clients.
In just the first three months of 2019, we’ve hired 7 new staff members, meaning we’ve almost doubled our team since last year! There’s now 13 of us, and our new team members cover a wide range of digital services, including SEO, content, PPC and web development.Contact us now
