Huddersfield-based Beanie Media, a web design and development, video and social media agency, is celebrating its third birthday with two new client wins.

Marking the anniversary, the team are celebrating winning website maintenance contracts for two large e-commerce brands, which will see projected growth over the next 12 months rise by 680% from its £57k start in year one.

Melissa Roberts, Beanie Media’s managing director, explained: “Selling products and services online is a growing market, accelerated by the recent pandemic.

“We work closely with online retailers to ensure their products are seen and, importantly, sold. We understand the importance of providing a positive first impression when customers visit a client’s website, and we provide the all-important tools to ensure this.

“Winning two clients whilst celebrating our third birthday is the icing on the cake, and we can’t wait to grow the Beanie Media team and client base further.”

Melissa and Dan Atkinson started the business from Starbucks with £30 in the bank in 2018, both leaving their jobs to take the plunge and launch Beanie Media.

They were 18 and 19 at the time and spent the first six months building a reputation, networking and saving enough money to rent their own office space. Beanie Media has been built from the ground up, with the entrepreneurial co-founders using money from sales to reinvest into the business as it grows.

Beanie Media specialises in supporting e-commerce businesses and believes that a web agency should consist of more than just creating a website, helping its clients to implement the right marketing strategy, and increase customers and profits.
