Back in January 2000 the company was started by Nigel Wilkinson to meet the rapidly growing demands of local businesses who felt they needed to develop a presence on the Internet but were confused by the technology and jargon surrounding it.
For the next fifteen years we operated as WNW Design, first being based in Budleigh Salterton, then moving to Exmouth in 2003, the same year that we became a Limited Company, WNW Design Ltd.
However even from the early days, design only played a small part of what we did. From day one we recognised that having a great website was important but unless targeted visitors were coming to the website it would not be successful.
Getting customers visitors by Search Engine Optimisation became a key service and remains so today. Although things have changed quite a lot as back in 2000 that meant getting found on Yahoo, Alta Vista, Lycos and a new start up company called Google.
In 2004 we started blogging on our website, this was long before it was known as Social Media, but that’s what we were doing all those years ago.
Continuing to grow our team and services, WNW Design was delighted to receive the prestigious Investors in People Award in 2005, retained in 2008, demonstrating our commitment to developing our staff, their skills and the services we can offer to our clients. We were the first digital agency in Devon to be given this award.
Over the next ten years we continued to grow and support our clients, until July 2014 saw the company take the next step of our development, with a move to prestigious offices in Dixs Field, in the heart of Exeter’s thriving business community.
This was combined with a change to the trading name, becoming WNW Digital and dropping Design from the name to better reflect the services we offer. Design is only one part of the mix that forms Digital Marketing. Changing the name to WNW Digital was a simply a natural progression in the development of WNW and the service we offer our customers.
