Ceuta Group, the global consumer brand services group, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Click Consult, the award-winning full-service digital and search marketing experts.
The acquisition of Click Consult is a key development in Ceuta Group’s strategy to invest in complementary businesses that enhance the value of the Group’s offering to current and prospective clients. The move results in greater synergies across the Group in the form of shared knowledge, resources and the opportunity for increased cross-selling and enhanced outcomes for clients.
Founded in 2003 and with offices in Cheshire, Click Consult has evolved into one of the UK’s leading digital and search marketing agencies, specialising in paid search marketing and organic search (SEO) optimisation as well as a range of other complimentary services. Working across sectors, and with an impressive portfolio of online businesses, Click Consult’s unique capabilities make it the perfect fit for Ceuta Group’s Integrated Platform of brand building solutions.
Edwin Bessant, Ceuta Group CEO, said: “We are delighted to welcome Click Consult, a fantastic business with a strong culture, values and people closely aligned to our own, to the Ceuta Group family. Many of our clients are struggling with their digital & search marketing strategies and are seeking expertise on how best to construct a compelling online proposition that effectively engages their target audiences. The inclusion of Click Consult in our offering is the last piece of the brand building puzzle for many companies and will deliver significant benefits to our global market base.”
Matt Bullas, Click Consult founder and CEO, said: “Over the last 15 years, we have worked to build Click Consult into a leading digital and search marketing agency that delivers a highly effective service and ROI for our clients. We are excited to join Ceuta Group and realise the mutual value the combination will create, while also providing a platform for Click Consult to continue to grow to new heights. Organisations are increasingly looking to reach consumers directly rather than through retail channels and this is something we are perfectly positioned to help them achieve alongside the Ceuta Group of companies.”
Ceuta Group’s Integrated Platform model supports the brand journey, from brand concept and communications, to shopper insight and retail strategies, and will now provide digital and search marketing services to complete the offering.
Click Consult has consistently been voted one of the UK’s best digital agencies by Econsultancy and The Drum, as well as being named Most Effective Agency at the Performance Marketing Awards 2018 and Search Agency of the year at the Northern Digital Awards 2018.
Click Consult will continue to operate as an independent business and will work closely with other companies under the Ceuta Group umbrella to collaboratively deliver outstanding results for clients and brands.
