The digital marketing agency Climb Online was founded by Mark Wright, the winner of the 2014 season of hit reality TV show The Apprentice. Climb Online exceeded £1m in turnover within its first year of trading – and that turnover more than doubled to £4m the following year.
Climb Online has become the most profitable business to have sprung from The Apprentice. In just the company’s ninth month, it was able to repay the £250,000 investment initially poured into the agency by Lord Sugar, who has even shared the story about its profitability on Twitter.
Today, Climb Online helps hundreds of companies, both in the UK and abroad, to improve their online presence. The company’s staff, spread across three offices in London, Bristol and Manchester, deliver services in digital fields including SEO, social media, paid media and digital branding.
Within a short space of time, Climb Online has produced remarkable results for its client base, which has continued to grow. Today, the digital marketing agency has over 200 clients.
However, even while helping these high-profile clients, Climb Online offers its services to companies of any size. Climb Online is also well-positioned to continue its success story – having, in 2017, opened a Manchester office to add to spaces it had previously set up in London and Bristol.
In announcing the Manchester office in 2017, Wright enthused: “Climb Online is a vision that I have had for several years.” He further added that Climb Online had become “the go-to business for marketing success”, hailing the agency “an unstoppable force”.
