Data HQ are celebrating 15 years of helping clients with their data marketing needs. The company has come along way since its conception back in 2001 and is proud to have developed from a highly respected mailing list supplier to a full service data marketing agency helping clients such as New Covent Garden Soups, St Johns Ambulance and Papa John’s.

Tim Holt, Data HQ’s Founder and Managing Director talks candidly about the company’s evolution;

‘I look back with pride at how the company has evolved. As marketers have become more data literate, their demand for more strategic solutions has grown. Over the last six or seven years there has also been a clear shift in focus from customer acquisition to retention. Big data and new technologies such as Marketing Automation have emerged and coming from a technical background, the team and I have always been a bit ‘geeky’ with data systems and analytics – so it was a natural progression for us to move into this area. List rental for prospecting is still a valuable and important part of our service however, it’s just one element of our overall offering'

As the company reaches its 15 year milestone, product innovation and customer satisfaction is still at its core. Data HQ have grown in size with currently over 30 employees and has relocated to new offices in the centre of Chelmsford. While change continuously happens within the industry, especially with the looming GDPR legislation, the company is ready to take advantage of every opportunity.

Dave Battson, Data HQ Sales Director says;

‘I have been with the company for over 10 years and during that time have seen massive growth in both our product offering and client base. The passion and commitment from the team is second to none and this is reflected in the high level of results we deliver and repeat business obtained. Our customer satisfaction rate is consistently over 90%. The secret to our success is simple : we listen to our customers and adapt to meet their needs'

Tim Holt concludes;

'Our expertise and considerable sector experience together with the quality of the data we supply and the quality of work produced by our Insight and Analytics department, all combine to put us at the very top of the industry I joined nearly 20 years ago’

Happy 15th Birthday Data HQ
