We are very excited to be the official hosting partner of Aqueous Digital, a leading Search Engine Marketing agency based in Greater Manchester.
Communications Manager, Rachel, caught up with Jonathan Guy, Managing Director at Aqueous Digital who shares his server hosting journey with Datacentreplus.
What does Aqueous Digital do?
Aqueous Digital are a Manchester-based specialist Search Engine Marketing agency, with a focus on SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and PPC (Pay Per Click).
How long have you been a customer of Datacentreplus?
We have been a customer of Datacentreplus for around a year and a half, since February 2018.
What do you love about us?
You only find out how good a company is when something goes wrong. In June 2018 one of our developers executed a line of code on the server that wiped everything out on a Friday afternoon. Every website we hosted was gone and customers were on the phone demanding answers. What happened next was that Rajon (one of the Datacentreplus engineers) started from a blank server, reinstalled the OS and then rebuilt our entire server and websites, working through until 9pm that night, ensuring that customers were not left high and dry. That’s service!.
Why did you choose Datacentreplus over other suppliers?
We chose to host our platforms with Datacentreplus for various reasons, customer service, price and accessibility were those that stood out in particular.
What does the future of Aqueous Digital look like?
Our stated plan in 2016 was to be a £1m turnover firm by 2020 and we have growth plans in place to achieve that. We were supported in January 2018 by an investment from the Northern Powerhouse fund and this has helped us to move offices, double our staff numbers and double our turnover in 2018. In 2019, we are looking to double again and are on track to deliver that result.
