2017 has been another amazing year for Croud. Their global team has more than doubled in size, with 67 new employees joining Croud across our four offices this year.
Croud’s impressive growth was highlighted by their inclusion in this year’s Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100, with their average annual sales growth over the last three years standing at 58.75%. The agency have been fortunate enough to welcome lots of brilliant new clients, including Victoria’s Secret, Amazon Prime, and AMC, and are excited to continue building on these successes in 2018 and beyond.
As it has been shared by the agency, Croud’s US team deserves a special shout-out, having been crowned Biddable Team of the Year at the Drum Search Awards USA earlier this year, after just 18 months in the US market – an amazing achievement!
According to their statements, probably their proudest moment this year was taking away the social innovation award at the Tech Track awards ceremony. This was in recognition of their Croudie network, which now enables over 1,200 digital experts to work whenever and wherever they like, provided they deliver great work.
This year, Croudies have delivered in excess of 70,000 hours of work, which enables the agency to deliver so much more for their clients. It’s also one of the core reasons why Croud has been recognised as the top UK independent agency for paid search by Google, leading the way in six out of eight benchmarks, including smart bidding and creative excellence.
Technology has been another key focus for Croud in 2017. With a team of in-house developers now numbering 12, they are continuing to invest in their technology and third-party tools, which underpin the business and provide their clients with complete transparency and a best-in-class service.
2017 saw lots of personal successes at Croud too, with several engagements, weddings and babies to celebrate. And collectively they raised over £11,000 for charity this year, including completing the Three Peaks Challenge in under 23 hours.
Croud have put together an infographic to sum up another fantastic year at the agency. They also convey their thanks to everyone who’s been a part of it, and celebrate 2018!
