Txtlocal has been named the 20th fastest growing digital agency in Europe by Media Momentum. The awards organised by GP Bullhound, recognise the top 50 most innovative and fastest growing companies in the European Digital Media Economy, and were announced in Barcelona last week.
Established in 2005 by Darren Daws and Alastair Shortland, Txtlocal are the UK’s leading provider of mobile messaging solutions. This award follows the Internet Business Award, that Txtlocal won for their online control panel, email gateway, API interface, and easy to use features, which build up to one of the most advanced text messaging systems on the market. This includes Mobile Web, a free to use tool that allows clients to build mobile web pages to use in conjunction with their SMS campaigns. Txtlocal’s growth is testament to their products and services catering for a large client portfolio of over 75,000 businesses covering a broad spectrum of industries, from small local businesses to large multi-nationals including Google, Manchester United, MySpace, Confused.com, Shell, Dominos, and Ladbrokes.
“We are absolutely delighted to be included on this list recognising visionaries and leaders in the digital space. This is a reflection of the tremendous growth of mobile marketing, not just for big brand organisations but for small local companies across Europe. More companies across the continent are recognising the value of mobile and tapping in to this channel. The fact mobile is a measurable medium ensures that customers can access and analyse results almost immediately. It’s an exciting time to be working in this sector and enabling businesses to discover and yield fantastic results from mobile marketing.” said Txtlocal MD Darren Daws.
