Digital marketing agency King Kong has signed a 12-month contract with loan provider Nimble, adding yet another brand to its rapidly expanding client portfolio.
The win follows a period of accelerated growth for the digital marketing agency, which has been named Australia’s fastest-growing digital marketing agency in the Australian Financial Review’s Fast Starters list for the past two years.
King Kong won Nimble through its aggressive digital marketing tactics, which the loan provider is hoping to utilise for its own lead flow processes. The agency will begin working with Nimble in January 2020.
Sabri Suby (feature image), King Kong founder and CEO, said: “We’re incredibly excited to see Nimble join our ever-growing client portfolio. The company is a strong player in the loan space, and we know King Kong can help take their digital marketing to the next level and use it to generate real results. Impressions, clicks, likes, shares, follows and all those vanity metrics don’t mean a thing unless they result in sales.
“Nimble approached us as a result of our own marketing, which is a testament to our tried and tested techniques. The team can’t wait to start boosting Nimble’s lead flow.”
David Tragardh, Customer Acquision Lead, at Nimble, added: “King Kong is doing some impressive things in the digital marketing space, and we’re keen to begin work with Sabri and the team. Nimble is already going from strength to strength, and we have no doubt that this new partnership will help push our business even further.”
Alongside Nimble, King Kong has also been appointed as OKI Data Australia’s digital marketing lead. King Kong will be helping to boost the Japanese-based printing company’s Australian lead flow through a mix of paid social, SEO, landing pages, CRO, sales funnel, and paid search.
In response to its growing portfolio, King Kong was recently included in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and was also named Australia’s 28th fastest growing company (AFR Fast Starters), making it Australia’s fastest-growing digital marketing agency in the AFR Fast Starters list for the past two years. The agency has also made it onto the AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies 2019 list and SmartCompany’s Smart50 list.
King Kong’s impressive client list spans a wide variety of industries both locally and internationally, and includes Metricon Homes, Nimble, Marshall White, Slater + Gordon, KX Pilates, Hockingstuart, Raine and Horne, Pavement Brands, F45, and The Jim’s Group among many others.
