Visibilis Makes a Strong Start to The Financial Year

Leeds-based digital marketing agency Visibilis has seen impressive growth during lockdown, welcoming six new clients and growing monthly revenues by 45%.

Founded in 2011 by Ben Wolfenden, the agency predominantly offers search marketing, with new clients Linaro and Kallidus joining retailers Kiddies Kingdom and Terrys Fabrics to strengthen the company’s client base.  Additionally, the agency’s headcount has grown, with seven new members coming on board since lockdown began.

Daisy Wolfenden, Visibilis’ MD, said: “We’ve seen enquiries spike from businesses who pre-pandemic were more reliant on their physical presence and offline activity such as events to make sales.

We’ve been able to help them quickly adapt and diversify their marketing strategies to focus on their digital channels and this is really where Visibilis excels. We’re an agile team meaning we can be responsive to changing business needs, and we really love working as though we’re a part of our client’s teams. A lot of our past experience is helping businesses to get started with digital marketing and helping them grow online across multiple channels.

We’re so pleased to have welcomed these clients in the past few months and we’ve no doubt we’ll enjoy strong partnerships with them. A third of our existing client base has been with us for over three years and it’s creating these lasting successful relationships with clients that sits at the core of why Visibilis was founded.”

Founder Ben Wolfenden explained: “Obviously no business knew what the immediate future had in store for them when lockdown began and it was a really worrying time for everyone. But our virtual pitches have really hit the mark and we’re pleased that we’ve still been able to demonstrate how we work as one cohesive unit despite not being in one room.

We absolutely put our success down to the unwavering determination and expertise of our team, who work in such a collaborative way with each other and our clients that we were able to adapt campaigns quickly, as well as capitalise on the existing solid strategies we already had in place for our clients.

As a result, the planned growth of our team could go ahead and we’ve welcomed seven new staff members since April. Our focus is on continuing to develop and strengthen our existing staff, whilst building out our senior leadership team.”

In a business world where challenges have increased dramatically in 2020, it’s a special pleasure to have good news.
