Lancaster Digital Marketing Agency SQ Digital Celebrates 20 Years In Business

"I am proud that we still continue to service several clients that we took on board at the very beginning of our journey. "
Vilayte Essa

Founded back in 2000 by brothers Vilayte and Husen Essa, the full-service agency is among the first SEO agencies to open in the UK, and has consistently provided high-quality digital marketing solutions to SME’s around Europe.

Speaking of the company’s humble beginnings, CEO and Founder, Vilayte Essa, said: “I was just 23 at the time of starting the company, and over the years the long term working relationships we’ve forged in this fast-paced industry are a testament to us for continually looking ahead and keeping our clients ahead of their competition.

“I am proud that we still continue to service several clients that we took on board at the very beginning of our journey. These long-lasting relationships highlight just how much of an impact our digital marketing services have had, and continue to have, on our clients overall business performance.”

In 2016, Kamal Essa joined the team as Managing Director to help accelerate business growth. Kamal, the oldest of the siblings, brought with him a wealth of experience from his time working in strategic roles for large Bluechip organisations.

Over the last four years, the company has adopted several new process management and marketing tools to improve efficiency, while ensuring that clients continue to receive the highest levels of service and campaign reporting.

The company rebranded from SearchQuest to SQ Digital in 2016, to better represent all of the digital capabilities that the company possessed, while also staying true to the origins of the business.

For five years running, SQ Digital has maintained a spot in the highly sought after Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies list, while being one of just 200 Google Premier Partners in the UK.

Speaking of the journey, Husen Essa said: “Despite being in the business for more than 20 years now, I’m still as passionate and enthusiastic about our client’s campaigns as I was back in 2000.

“With the team, we currently have in place, along with continued investment in the latest and greatest marketing tools and technologies, there’s no doubt that exciting times lie ahead for SQ Digital.”
