Back to overview
  • Sales in the first nine months increase by 42% to EUR 12 million
  • Faster growth in the third quarter totalling 62%
  • Customer acquisition particularly high for Amazon Marketing

Herrenberg/Nuremberg, 13th November 2017: The full-service performance agency ad agents reported an increase in revenue of 42% during the first nine months of 2017, totalling EUR 12 million (Q1–Q3 2016: 8 million). Growth was up 62% during the third quarter alone after increases of 34% and 30% were reported in the second and first quarters, respectively (compared to the same periods last year).

These excellent figures are the result of two factors: an increase in sales for existing customers and the successful acquisition of many new customers, including especially the company’s Amazon services segment. Christ, Euronics and Thalia are among the many high-profile companies that have been part of ad agents’ client portfolio for many years.

In addition to traditional performance marketing disciplines such as SEA and SEO, particularly dynamic growth has been recorded in the Amazon ads and Amazon SEO segments. These fields will be at the centre of future growth along with the increasingly important area of strategic consultancy.

“The growth ad agents has achieved in the last quarter consolidates its position as one of the last remaining independent performance agencies on the German market,” Wolfgang Schilling, one of the two managing directors of ad agents, commented. “We do a lot more for our clients than simply accelerate their sales growth and customer acquisition – we support them throughout the entire implementation of their digital transformation agenda. Our solid growth results clearly show that we have made the right choice by focusing on performance marketing services and consultancy,” says Jens Körner, CEO of the ad pepper media group. “We are optimistic that we can continue to benefit immensely from the current market dynamics.”
