UK Digital Marketing Agency

One Mission

Increase the Value of your Business through Cost Effective Agile and Forensic Search Marketing Strategies

Choosing a digital marketing agency can be a bit like falling in love.

The first flourishes of romance are tremendously exciting and the heat’s turned up even further when expectations are raised through wild promises about a successful partnership that exceeds your wildest dreams.

But after those sparks subside, there’s that awkward phase where you don’t seem to understand each other anymore, then you stop talking entirely, and sometimes one of you goes completely AWOL.

Fear not – two things clients love about Maratopia are our dedication to listening keenly and observing closely.

Like the Barry Whites of the UK digital agency scene, we’re never, never, gonna give you up – which is why we not only offer a full range of outstanding digital services for local, national and international clients, and we also have physical offices across the UK where we can meet in person. Whether you want advice on technical SEO, or a casual chat about general digital marketing over a cuppa, we’re here to help.

Maratopia was founded by its CEO Stephen Harvey-Franklin (Steve to everyone except Mum).

Steve’s first exposure to digital marketing was in the early days of the internet back in 1996 and through the 90s, running a number stock photo, music, effects and footage agencies in London.

The stunning success enjoyed, combined a fast growing audio visual market, an industry roll up, global distribution and a product that could be digitised, sold and delivered online.

Having led one of the world’s leading agencies into this new online e-commerce world, he decided to become poacher turned gamekeeper. Taking the incredible early learnings from client side to agency side. Not many agencies are born from e-commerce success nor the client side ethos. Maratopia more than most understand the heartbeat of businesses and their need for results, deliverability, accountability and return on investment. That’s why we concentrate so vehemently on being fact and evidenced based, plain English. No false hopes, no smoke and mirrors here, just statistical analysis.

For example, we have developed a unique approach to search marketing analysis, taking into account over 21 key drivers of search position to analyse and devise the precise ingredients required for any given keyword to make the top 10 of Google’s search results.

This is why we spend so long analysing potential clients. With our Search Space Analysis a process forever being refined to understand a site’s search space, keywords, competitors content , core web vitals and backlinks create the perfect picture of the search environment and the strengths and weaknesses of the protagonists. Only understanding strengths and weaknesses (gap analysis on each level) can you truly identify what is needed to beat each and every competitor as cost effectively as possible.

In Several UK Cities

And when it comes to location, we couldn’t be more central – stroll straight across St George’s Square at the train station, pat Harold Wilson on the back as you pass, look both ways as you cross the road and shimmy down the steps to our office. We’ve got tea, coffee and biscuits (at least three different types!).

Online Marketing In London

London abounds with awesome business opportunities, but if you don’t have a billion pound budget, it can be hard making yourself heard in a crowded marketplace.

However, Maratopia has a strong track record of helping challenger companies with tough competition establish an excellent digital presence, connect creatively with customers and drive sales.

And if you’re a London firm using the capital as a base to expand into overseas markets, don’t forget that we offer expert international SEO services for search engines like China’s Baidu and Russia’s Yandex, as well as native-speaker digital translation services for a wide range of languages.

With some of our larger clients being London- or Southern-based, we’re often catching up with them in the capital, so it’s no problem extending our time there to talk to you – give us a bell if you want to meet in the big smoke.

Digital Marketing In Manchester

Manchester’s not only the home of two of the world’s best football teams (all hail Altrincham and Salford City!), it’s also a bustling business hub a stone’s throw from our Huddersfield HQ.

We pop over to Manchester regularly and have worked extensively with major clients including MAG (Manchester Airport Group), so if you’re trying to establish yourself in any sector in this Northern Powerhouse, we’re more than happy to help with brand-aligned Content Marketing, Web Design or anything else.

And if you’re a genuine Stone Roses fan we might even throw in a discount - but we’ll have to see genuine ticket stubs from the 80s/90s as evidence!
