WMG, part of the idhl Group, is one of the fastest growing digital marketing agencies in the UK, with a long-standing and continually evolving background in online innovation.

Who are we and what we stand for.

Originating from the brainchild of our enterprising CEO, Dennis Engel, WMG’s story begins with the concept of online tradeshows which was brought into reality under the name Webevents over 20 years ago. Investing in the development of our own software, the Webevents platform was designed to generate and manage virtual exhibitions, featuring stands for advertisers, news hubs and knowledge centres.

As business ambition to thrive online grew, an astute perception led to the in-house development of a suite of online marketing products designed to drive targeted traffic to websites. Fuelled by our wealth of data driven tools and growing intellectual property portfolio, 2003 saw our business transition into digital marketing services with a name change to The WebMarketing Group to better reflect the business direction.

Keeping pace with the rate at which data and technology has transformed, our software has seen numerous iterative improvements and our service offering continues to expand as Digital Marketing becomes not only more sophisticated, but business critical.

Analytical in our approach and inquisitive by nature, we’re a Digital Agency with a difference – data is in our DNA. Our extensive, in-house developed, intellectual property fuels our ability to blend technical expertise with imagination, to generate measurable and impactful results for our clients.

Over 20 years, we’ve built an outstanding reputation by helping large UK businesses improve their online visibility, drive traffic and increase conversions. This is proven by our retention of enviable clients, including many blue-chip companies and household names.

Today, WMG (as we’ve been known since 2014) are the north’s resident experts in SEO, PPC, Social, Programmatic, Content Marketing, Outreach and Digital PR. Headquartered in Harrogate and with sales offices in central London, our 140-strong team of digital specialists are primed to deliver for your business.
