And so another successful year at Unity is behind us. But 2022 has been so much more than just an award-winning year for our business and clients. Here, Managing Director Alex Pattenden discusses how our biggest and best year yet will help secure a strong 2023 for our clients.

I couldn’t be prouder of our team and everything they have achieved this year. We had already showcased our skillset on the industry in the past – but now we have award wins and numerous national finalist positions to demonstrate just how talented we really are.

But this year is about so much more than just award wins.

The reputation of our team and our proven track record at delivering results for our clients is spreading across the country. This year we have seen more clients than ever before approach us for support, and our work is securing a real return on investment for them – helping unleash their potential online.

We’ve showed our clients the benefits of investing in marketing and development. Indeed, seeing a 50% increase in PPC spending shows the confidence our clients have in working with us – with one seeing their revenue increase by 433% year on year. That is the strength our team can bring.


A multi-award-winning year

We have always known the value of our team and the unrivalled experience and expertise we possess. But in 2022, that skillset and our proven track record for results have gained us national recognition – and two big award wins.

We were immensely proud to be named Growth Business of the Year at the Suffolk Business Awards, showing the business world that our incredible journey is only just beginning. Likewise, the success of Emily and Larissa from our Web team at this year’s DevelopHER Awards not only recognises their incredible talents, but showcases our commitment to building a more diverse workforce here at Unity.

We’ve also been shortlisted for numerous national awards – not just for our talents but our work in building a united, friendly and supportive working environment such as through the international Investors in People Awards.

We never rest on our laurels and know we have even more to achieve next year.




Personal milestones

Our team are always looking to develop and bring even more skills to the table. But their approach to education and development has been unprecedented. We have seen numerous team members rise through the ranks and stamp their authority on the industry – making a name both for themselves and Unity on the national stage.

That development has had a positive effect on our clients and we are all excited to see the benefits it will bring next year. We wouldn’t be where we are today as an agency if it wasn’t for their relentless work. Their loyalty and longevity has not gone unnoticed.

Our new Client Success team is helping ensure we never lose sight of our clients’ objectives. The powerhouse team is placing their interests at the heart of everything we do. Armed to the hilt with experience and ability, the team champions our clients’ position as the driving force behind our award-winning work and direction.

We look forward to inviting more people into the Unity family as our business continues to grow.


Looking to 2023

This year we have showcased the power of Unity – and the reason for that strength is all our name. We are a united team, who work together collaboratively to deliver the best results for our clients.

We know 2023 has the potential to be even greater. Our commitment to our clients is unwavering, as is our devotion to identifying new and innovative ways to turn their ambition into growth, and expand their reach to new customers in the UK and around the world.

Our clients know we are approachable, knowledgeable, understand their needs and strive to deliver the best results. But now is the time to turn things up a gear.

We will challenge our industry and shape the future of marketing relationships. Not only will we be front runners, we will challenge the status quo and stay true to who we are – a united team of experts out to allow all businesses the opportunity to unleash their potential online, regardless of their size.

Our community here in Suffolk is incredibly important to us. This is our home and it is a home we are proud of – which is why we put a big emphasis on giving back. We have done fantastic work to help our chosen charities and look forward to doing even more to support them and raise awareness of their causes next year. Our community outreach journey is only just beginning.



A thank you to our clients

Our clients are our lifeblood and inspire us to strive for excellence. Together we have built meaningful and lasting relationships, helping deliver us both success. They have put faith in us during choppy waters nationally and we have repaid their confidence through an incredible set of results.

I and the entire Unity team would like to express our thanks to all our clients as we look forward to an even brighter 2023. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
