Summary of the year so far: 2014 has been a year of growth, innovation and awards for iProspect. As well as achieving an excellent eight in the Campaign School Reports, iProspect was named the Most Effective Media Agency at The Drum Digital Trading Awards. Within eight short months we’ve won seven new clients, including Camelot, Wickes and Microsoft, both with our partners and individually. The UK team has grown to 320 staff following the ongoing appointment of fantastic new talent, including Matt Adams as chief media officer from DigitasLBi. We were also the highest ranked purely digital performance agency in Econsultancy’s Top 100 Digital Agencies report for the second year running. In May 2014, we published ‘The Ageless Internet’ a research-led piece overturning outdated perceptions of how older consumers (over 50s) consume digital, generating widespread media attention across industry and national press. In a media first our retail campaign for Ikea with Vizeum, isobar, EE and Facebook, demonstrated the world’s first direct link between Facebook ads and in-store footfall – a massive coup for all involved, and for the industry as a whole. iProspect had an excellent 2013, and with revenue growth on track for 35 per cent by year end, 2014 is set to be even better.
