Drum Top 100 Agencies: Impression Named Top 3 Search Agency

This article was updated on: 07.02.2022

We’re thrilled to announce we’re listed in the Drum Top 100 Agencies list, as voted for by clients.

The list, which is managed by global marketing platform The Drum, is used by businesses when looking for the very best agencies to work with. Being featured in the Top 100 is a real accolade, and one of which we’re very proud.

The listing reads:

“Impression is a digital marketing agency that specialises in SEO, PR, PPC, content marketing and web design in Nottingham and London. It has worked with clients including Experian, Company Check and Carsnip and has grown from a staff of 15 digital marketing specialists to 22 over the past 12 months. Impression emerged as the third-best search agency in our research, and had the seventh RAR ranking overall.

It seems like only yesterday that Impression was founded by Tom and Aaron. We’ve grown very quickly and in just three short years since our first member of staff was welcomed, we’ve brought more than 30 new digital marketing experts on board, been winners in the European Search Awards and RAR Digital Awards, spoken at huge industry events such as Brighton SEO and Hero Conf, and had more games of table tennis and beers from the fridge than we care to remember!

So you can imagine how thrilled, excited and humbled we are to be named in the Drum’s top 100 agencies – achieving position 3 in the ‘search’ category and 7 overall!

We received this comment from Sam Scott, Assistant Publisher at The Drum:

“The Drum has long championed the UK’s independent agencies, which collectively make an enormous contribution to the creative industries. Great independent agencies often offer outstanding levels of skill and attentiveness, delighting clients and driving up standards. This Top 100 is a recognition of independent agencies that have performed well across our comprehensive measures – taking financial performance, awards wins, and client satisfaction into account.”

The top 100 list is based on reviews given by clients to agencies on the Recommended Agencies Register. With an overall rating of 9.3 out of 10 from our client reviews, we have been ranked above many other larger, longer established agencies in our industry. Check out our RAR profile here.
