Rosebud funding opens door to growth for digital agency

By April 30, 2014Finance, News

An award-winning digital marketing agency is creating three new jobs after receiving a significant investment from Lancashire’s Rosebud Finance.

Door4, which is based in East Lancashire, designs and builds websites and helps drive traffic to them through search engine optimisation, email marketing and social media. The agency also serves its clients with graphic design, content production, video and photography.

Established in 2000 by Leon Calverley, the company serves customers including Allied Bakeries, Bglobal, Daniel Thwaites, Boundary Mill Stores and Magnet Trade.

Rosebud’s finance will allow it to pursue growth opportunities by expanding its team and extending its range of marketing services.

Door4 has been growing steadily throughout the economic downturn and currently employs 13 people.

Door4 was named Creative Agency of the Year at the 2013 Red Rose Awards and Technology Business of the Year at the 2012 Pendle Business Awards.

Leon Calverley, Managing Director, said: “With the economy becoming increasingly buoyant, this is the ideal time to be investing in the business and planning for future growth. The finance from Rosebud will allow us to further strengthen our team by bringing in additional skillsets, developing our services and extending our reach into other areas of the North West.”

Rosebud is a finance package supporting Lancashire firms to grow and expand their business. It is managed by Enterprise Ventures, on behalf of Lancashire County Developments Ltd (LCDL) – the county council’s economic development company.

Paul Taberner from Enterprise Ventures, said: “Door4 is a forward-looking business which is investing in its team in preparation for growth. Rosebud is keen to back ambitious businesses like this within the creative and digital industry or any other of our target sectors.”

County Councillor Niki Penney, Chair of LCDL, said: “Digital marketing agencies help other companies to improve their online presence. This can open up new commercial opportunities for those businesses, helping to create further jobs and bringing additional economic benefits.

“We’ve identified creative and digital companies as one of our priority sectors. Thanks to Rosebud’s financial support, Lancashire-based Door4 will be creating new jobs in this sector.”
