A leading SEO agency has been selected to represent the North East on a Northern Powerhouse trade mission to Ireland later this month.
Tyneside-based ROAR Digital Marketing will join a select delegation of businesses from across the North of England on a business development trip organised by the Department for Business and Trade (DBT). The trade mission will take place at the end of September and will see the chosen delegates spend time in Dublin at a series of specially arranged events.
ROAR specialises in Search Engine Marketing services particularly SEO and PPC solutions. Its managing director and founder, Michael Knowles, said: “The delegates selected for the DBT mission have already been introduced through workshops and it is amazing that so many talented businesses operating across the North are being given this opportunity to reach audiences in Ireland.
“The high level of expertise from the delegates travelling over from the North of England is vast and I have no doubt that our local businesses can transfer the amazing service they already provide to their clients to a new market. ROAR Digital Marketing already works with companies with international reach and we are excited at the prospect of helping Irish businesses grow by implementing our top level SEO strategies.”
The DBT supports businesses across the UK to export their products or services to markets overseas, and the upcoming trade mission will include a meeting with the British Embassy in Dublin and a series of workshops at the Guinness Enterprise Centre.
The selected Northern businesses will be assisted by an international trade advisor to oversee activity alongside DBT representatives.
Michael said: “I’m really excited about the DBT trade mission as there are certainly opportunities for us to work with some excellent Irish businesses and we feel there are numerous synergies between Ireland and the North of England which we can develop for a mutual benefit.”
Michael, a former Google Skills Trainer and university lecturer, founded ROAR Digital Marketing in 2016 and the company has grown rapidly as it works with clients across the UK, and into Europe.
