Silver Anniversary for SilverDisc

We are celebrating our 25th anniversary this week, placing us among the oldest full service digital marketing agencies in the country! We were founded in 1993 by MD Alan Perkins, and now employ 20 people in Kettering, with a small division in Santiago, Chile.

A brief history

SilverDisc’s very first products were sold in WH Smith on compact disc, hence the name ‘SilverDisc’, but as early as 1994 we had our own webserver, and in 1995 started marketing clients’ websites on search engines - long before this process was called SEO!

Shortly afterwards, Alan was granted global search patents in the late 1990s and, as a result, has spoken at search marketing conferences all over the world for the past 20 years. At one of these conferences in 2001 he met senior Googlers, and worked with them to write their webmaster guidelines, cementing SilverDisc’s reputation for high professional and ethical standards.

What about now?

SilverDisc is now a Google Premier Partner and a Bing Select Partner, something we’ve all worked really hard for, and we’re proud to maintain these year after year! We design, build, market and improve websites and apps for clients seeking measurable, sustainable, high performance growth from their online presence.

Alan Perkins said “It’s been a fantastic 25 years and I’m so proud of my team of experts and what we have achieved for our clients in Northamptonshire and around the world. As we enter the next 25 years, we will continue using technology to gain more recognition, growth and profit for our clients and their businesses.”

How will we be celebrating?

For now, it’s business as usual! But come the summer months, management have something ‘wild’ planned for everyone in the office! Stay tuned to find out more!
