Sutton Coldfield marketing and creative agency WAA has revealed bumper profits.
The Sutton Coldfield based business has a turnover of about £6.5 million and profit is around £400,000.
The company employs 78 staff and clients include 3M, Halfords Autocentres and City and Guilds.
WAA founder and chief executive Andrew Wilson started the company as an advertising agency when he left university in 1986.
He said: “As an ad agency it is about attracting the right talent and retaining it. We are only as good as our people.
“The PR team is growing and we have added to it with social media expertise. Seventy per cent of our work is online now.
“Social media is a growing area.
“Business is tough out there. We are still seeing our clients work that much harder to win business.
“We are finding it OK, there is still marketing spend out there.
“We are winning a lot of business out of London.
“Regional agencies have traditionally been viewed as better value, where clients can get more senior talent working on their accounts.
“We are finding it is actually good for us, when the economy demands you work hard we can deliver more for the pound.
“We have about 20 live clients, a real mix from international manufacturing companies to educational establishments.
“We spend a lot of time doing research and understanding the audience, and when you do that you can operate in any sector.
“We are being asked to launch a lot of brands. The brand might not be the leader but wants to knock the leader off its pedestal.”
Mr Wilson added: “We invested a lot of money last year in marketing. The online economy, ecommerce, and mobile is growing.
“Our mantra would be steady, stable growth over the next year.”
