Hey There.
It's great to meet you.

Our History
“Very Smart Folks”
Rory Cellan-Jones, BBC Technology

DigitallyEngaged isn't a typical marketing agency. In fact, we're not an agency at all.

Started in 2012 as a way to help people understand the changing online marketing landscape, we've grown into one of the UK's leading marketing strategy consultancies.

Our first project over the London 2012 Olympics captured mainstream attention and, in just 6-short weeks, we delivered a campaign that reached more than 2.5m people, won fans and headlines around the world, and saw us awarded the silver medal in the BBC's “Social Media Olympics” - second only to the official @TeamGB campaign itself.

It's been ten years since then, and our unique approach to marketing still underpins every strategy we design, every headline we win and every successful campaign we launch.
Our Mission
Back in 2012, we launched with one goal - to give people the skills and confidence they need to get the best from online marketing.

It's a mission that we're incredibly proud of and, if we're honest, one that surprises a lot of people - especially in the industry.

It's why we share our research and results. It's why we published the framework we created and help people use it themselves. It's why created a City & Guilds Apprenticeship to train the next generation of marketers. It's why we're happy to guest on podcasts or take the stage. And it's why we created the #TeamDE Academy to share what we've learned with anybody who can use that to get better results from their own campaigns.

Nobody can know everything about every part of online marketing. But together, we really can change the world.
Our Founder - Adam Naisbitt FCIM FRSA
“One of the UK's leading marketers”
The Chartered Institute of Marketing

Adam founded DigitallyEngaged in 2012 after a three year project exploring how psychology, behavioural economics and technology overlap and influence how people engage with traditional marketing.

Today Adam splits his time between campaign design, coaching clients and creating content for the #TeamDE Academy, and he speaks regularly about online marketing as a guest on podcasts and industry panels.

He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (FCIM) and the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce (FRSA), and you can find him on LinkedIn and Medium where he writes about lessons he's learned over the past 20 years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question? We've shared answers to some of the most common enquiries below. And, of course, feel free to get in touch. We're happy to help.
What makes DigitallyEngaged different?
There are three things worth mentioning - 1) we focus exclusively on our speciality - marketing strategy, 2) we have a unique approach to marketing which underpins all of our campaigns, and 3) our work is based on extensive first-hand research and testing.
What does your research cover?
Our work is built on four primary areas of research - traditional marketing, consumer psychology, behavioural economics and marketing technology.
Do you have an agency side?
Whilst we do a small amount of tactical work in-house, we don’t offer any traditional agency services. We believe the scope of marketing is too big for any one company to do everything to a high level, so we work with external partners who are able to offer a high level of expertise in their specific area of marketing.
Can I be an agency partner?
We’re always looking for new partners to support our clients. Please use the form below to introduce yourself and what you’re able to offer, and one of our team will get in touch with you.
Are you currently recruiting?
We are not currently recruiting. We update our LinkedIn profile with any job and/or consulting opportunities, so please follow us there if you’re interested in working with us.

It’s probably worth us mentioning that we do not work with recruitment consultants or agencies.
Can I book a speaker/guest?
Absolutely. We have a lot of experience in delivering keynotes/workshops/guest content and would love the chance to develop a proposal for you.

We’re also currently looking for opportunities to spread the word about our upcoming #TeamDE Academy launch. If your audience overlaps with ours (SME owners/marketers looking to design/manage a successful marketing campaign), we would likely support you for free.
Why do you not have social media?
One of the pieces of advice we give is that businesses need to focus on the right channels. As our own clients have been unlikely to come through social media, we have never invested in building out those channels.

However, our new #TeamDE Academy is being built to help SME owners and marketers, so we’ve launched new social media channels (@byTeamDE on all platforms). We’ll start to publish content through them in September.
Can I contribute content?
We’re only accepting content for the #TeamDE Academy from our Partners and people we approach directly. If you are interested in becoming a Partner, please use the form below to introduce yourself and what you’re able to offer, and one of our team will get in touch with you.
