British Business Bank: Can you tell us what your company does?
Billy Foulkes, Director at Wildfire Marketing Limited: We are a digital agency based in Leeds and London. We offer website design, SEO, social media, email marketing and paid advertising services.
Explain why you wanted finance?
We wanted finance to invest in the future of the business. We wanted to recruit some new employees to help the business grow and invest in talent in our local region (Yorkshire).
How would you sum up what getting this finance has meant to you and your business?
The Recovery Loan Scheme has secured the long-term future of the business and allowed us the opportunity to cement our place in Leeds’ thriving digital scene. We started this business with nothing and now it is fantastic to receive this funding to help us grow to the next level.
Our Recovery Loan will give us the cash boost to help grow and invest in new employees. Our future plans are to maintain the levels of growth that we had experienced before the pandemic struck, and to take us forward to the next level.
