Digital Ethos: A Yearly Roundup from your Leicester Digital Marketing Agency


First things first, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone! It’s been a great year for our digital marketing agency in Leicester – from new acquisitions to new awards and the growth of the Digital Ethos family. 

It’s been a whirlwind of a year, and we want to welcome 2022 by looking back at what we have achieved and looking forward to what’s to come. It’s been a long year of success, so bear with us or check out our DE Christmas Video to get a glimpse of what we’ve been up to.


Warm Welcomes to the Boxed Red and 9 Dot Media Team


It’s been a hot year for growth in Digital Ethos this 2021. This summer, we combined forces with Boxed Red Marketing and Nine Dot Media, expanding the team with even more creative and dynamic individuals to enhance our digital marketing agency in Leicester. 

And with the growth of our family came a growth in our list of wonderful customers that we have been excited to produce top-notch services for. This acquisition is the second for our award-winning company, and it will pave the way for further opportunities to grow across both brands.


A Year of Exceptional Awards


Phew! Not only has 2021 brought growth to our family, but our awards as well. It’s been a great year for our digital marketing agency in Leicester, and it’s thanks to the entire team that constantly hold the fort, putting the ‘ethos’ in Digital Ethos.

First, we are delighted to share our victories at the UK Paid Media Awards:

  • SHOPPING ADS CAMPAIGN OF THE YEAR – Silver Award: Digital Ethos & VIP Bottles – Making Every Shot Count 
  • BEST USE OF AUTOMATION – Winner: Digital Ethos & VIP Bottles – Making Every Shot Count 

The UK Paid Media Awards recognise, celebrate and reward the contribution that paid media makes to shape the future of advertising sales, media planning and the overall success and profits of businesses. This is why we would like to share our thanks for gracing us with these amazing awards.

We were also shortlisted for four main categories at the European Search Awards 2021:

  • BEST USE OF SEARCH – Retail/e-commerce

After a whirlwind of a year, we are honoured to receive these awards and once again would like to say many thanks. Bring on 2022! 


Growing the Growth Festival


Let’s not forget the Growth Festival! We started the year off strong, launching our very own digital marketing event in January. We got some awesome guest speakers from across every digital landscape, delivering their wisdom to help businesses thrive in an ever-evolving digital world. And guess what? It was a huge success!

We had speakers from Ahrefs, LinkedIn, IRP, Mobile Monkey and many more that took to the digital stage, dropping all kinds of knowledge bombs. Don’t worry though, there’s no fear of missing out here, you can always watch it again,  and with 2022 right around the corner, we’ve got another little surprise for you. If you’re sitting there wishing you could’ve attended, you’re in luck. The Growth Festival will return in May 2022 – so keep your eyes peeled, and your brains switched on; you don’t want to miss out!  


Taking Digital Ethos from Leicester to Global


Surrounded by beautiful scenery, amazing people and a pretty good football team to boot, our headquarters in Leicestershire is where it all started. But the world is a big place, and we have big dreams.

So in the early part of the year, we launched our first European office in Hamburg, which was Wunderbar! And just a few months later, the grand opening of our offices across the Atlantic in Toronto, Canada, followed suit. Like we’ve said many a time, watch this space! Who knows where we’ll leave our next digital footprint…


Active on All Fronts


It’s been a very busy year for our digital marketing agency in Leicester. We’ve continued to produce excellent work for clients old and new with some creative and innovative projects. We can’t wait to build on this success in the new year as we welcome great new clients and continue to deliver excellent digital marketing solutions for our established ones. In 2021 not only have we acquired 40 new amazing clients, but we’ve also welcomed 30 new team members too. The DE family has grown significantly over the last year, and it’s definitely made us stronger. 

At Digital Ethos, we’re committed to giving back to our community and encourage our team to find ways to create positive change. So, this year, we partnered up with a number of local and national charities to raise awareness of the incredible work they do. Our agency is also focused on achieving a fully sustainable, ethical, and circular business model, and we are delighted to be recognised with a B Corp Certification for our work in this area. 


Here’s to 2022


We’ve come a long way, and as we close the curtains in 2021, we welcome the new year and are excited for what’s to come. We’re Digital Ethos, and we’re an international team with a range of specialists that can put your brand on the map.
