We are 6!
The 11th of July 2007 was my first day of “going it alone” and as I sit writing this I can see 17 people working away in front of me – “proud” doesn’t even come close…
I officially incorporated the business on the 31st of July 2007, originally as Grass Circle. A name I invented one bizarre evening, thinking it would stick in peoples minds, I quickly changed my mind and renamed the business Clicky Media 6 months later.
We have come a long way with plenty of ups and fortunately, very few downs along the way. We have worked with some massive brands, on some amazing projects and have seen so many of our customers quite literally take off as a result of our work and most importantly, we have enjoyed every minute.
My team have been amazing, their enthusiasm and pride in their work shines through in everything we do. Every single person who has worked for Clicky Media in the past 6 years have played their part and they are the only reason we are where we are – I thank every single one of you!
Our clients have stuck with us too. A huge number of clients have worked with us for the full 6 years and some of the people we have worked with have been fantastic ambassadors of our work – we thank you!
We’ve been fortunate enough to never need a bank loan or any form of outside investment and so we live and work in a fantastically relaxed environment which allows us to take care in our work and we always are prepared to go the extra mile to keep our clients happy.
And so what’s next? We carry on carrying on. We want to get bigger (in numbers), expand our range of services and most importantly, keep taking care of the people that got us to where we are today.
