Velstar climbs six places in 2024 PN Top 50 Rankings

Since the last Prolific North Top 50, we have rebranded and repositioned the agency to capitalise on our strengths, we’ve successfully embedded the staff and services of We Influence following an acquisition, we’ve acquired and begun the process again with We Teach CRO and are in the final stages of a further acquisition.

We have won amazing new clients, helped existing clients to grow, met our internal target of 50% YoY growth, have reworked our service offering, expanded our senior leadership team and so, so much more

However, when you’re so close to the day-to-day workings, it’s easy to overlook the amount of progress that has been made in one short year. That’s why it has been a fantastic benefit to everyone here to have the Prolific North Top 50 as a benchmark - and we’re incredibly proud of the performance.

We know everyone says they’re proud when there’s a PR piece to put out, but it has been such a huge team effort that every single person at the agency has contributed to the success we’ve seen over the last 12 months and it’s not just a fluffy statement - we’re all, well, properly chuffed.

Since 2023, Velstar has moved up an amazing 6 positions to occupy the number 28 spot in this year’s rankings - climbing above some exceptional agencies as we look to stake our claim as one of the premier digital agencies in one of the highest performing areas of the UK.

CEO, Dan Sheard, said of the announcement:

Top ranked Liverpool agency for the second year running and motoring up the rankings - for such a relatively young independent agency, we have really exceeded what anyone external could have expected, but we know we’re doing the right stuff and we know what we’re capable of. There’s more to come!

MD, Graham Withe, added:

There is so much competition in the North of England - and the North West has been punching above its weight for years now, with many agencies competing with (and out competing) huge London agencies. That makes our rise through the rankings even more enjoyable. It’s huge news for us, and I know everyone will be really happy with the result and ready to keep pushing.

We’ve got so much more to shout about over the coming weeks and months, so if you’d like to see how we go about climbing those rankings again, you can sign up to our newsletter below - and if you’d like to join us and our clients as we take our next steps, drop us a message here.
