TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER

Our aim is to be transparent and approachable and to build strong client relationships that facilitate the clients to focus on the aspects of their business in which they are expert and trust in Discovery for the areas where they are not.

THE WHO

Discovery is a digital marketing agency that aims to set itself apart from the competition with a focused aim on delivering a quality of service and expertise above and beyond expectations.

We aim to get to know the client’s business and use both their and our own knowledge and experience to manage the online and digital side of business. We can provide insight into an area that is often murky and mysterious and hand back vital time back to our clients so they can focus on running their business rather than their web presence.

THE MISSION

We aim to build a strong client base with a first-rate reputation for our achievements and reliability. Our goal is for each client to feel they gain from their relationship with us and to build our business through positive recommendations from the work we undertake.

OUR VALUES

To be seen as reliable and approachable and value strong, trusting relationships with all those we do business with.

DISCOVERY WAS LAUNCHED

With a bit of help from some good friends and a loan of office space from On IT Ltd (our first official client) Digital Discovery Ltd was born. Just Steve at this time, but with plans to expand quickly!

DYLAN JOINS THE TEAM

A key member of the Discovery team. Dylan joins as Head of Paid Media. With a rich history of both client & agency side work, he has some major clients under his belt and his experience is invaluable.

FIRST CLIENT WIN

They say you always remember your first! Well, we certainly do, launching a new retail client 1 week before Black Friday was undoubtedly something Dylan and Steve will remember for a long time, and not something we want to repeat any time soon.

WILL JOINS DISCOVERY

The 3rd arm of our SMT, Will joins Discovery as Head of Development and quickly is put to use upgrading the Discovery Website from WordPress to Umbraco (and he hasn't stopped developing it since).

OUR OWN OFFICE SPACE

As we prepared for the team to start expanding, we knew that we needed some office space of our own. Yes we had our hearts set on 10,000 sqft in the centre of Leeds, but as soon as we saw the price tag, we settled on a nice open office in Ponderosa Business Park in Heckmondwike.

CHLOE JOINS DISCOVERY

We hadn't planned on taking on an apprentice for the business, but after an initial call and a face-to-face at the pub (where could be better?), we decided that Chloe would be a good fit for us and we could help her to complete her apprenticeship.

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH CUBBY STUDIOS

Having worked with Ross and the team at Cubby on a few projects that came from chats at our networking group, we decided to make things official. We haven't looked back, Cubby Studio are the Ying to our Yang and the entire team loves working with the Cubby team.

NORTHERN MAX BUSINESS ACCELERATOR

Between February and May, Steve attended weekly workshops run by Ad:Venture called the Northern Max Business Accelerator. This helped to develop some of the things we 'skipped' over when starting out and has really impacted the way we run the business, helping us be more efficient and focused on us and our clients.

MOVED TO OUR NEW OFFICES

The start of 2023 is even more exciting as we are finally moved into our new offices. Perfect for our planned growth and offers plenty of space to have 1-2-1's, client meetings and a cheeky game of pool!

Fancy a nose around and a cuppa? Just give us a shout, we would love to see you.

DISCOVERY AGENCY RE-BRAND

Digital Discovery has served us well, but we are a long long way from the group of freelancers who first started everything almost 10 years ago! Discovery Agency has allowed us to expand into new branding, new services and our new office and we look forward to growing even more in the future.

Marketing is not just about promoting products or services, but about building relationships and creating value for our customers. It is a vital component of any successful business, and we are committed to creating and implementing effective marketing strategies to help us achieve our business goals.

We are committed to upholding the dignity and rights of all individuals, including our employees, customers, suppliers, and community members. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, harassment, or human rights abuses, and we strive to create a safe and respectful environment for all. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any violation of human rights and work to ensure that our operations and supply chain are free from any such violations.

We are committed to promoting responsible business practises and creating positive impact in our community.

We will continue to review and improve our CSR programme to ensure that we are meeting the highest standards of ethical conduct and making a positive impact in the world.
