Skyline Internet celebrates 10 year anniversary.

A Northern Lincolnshire business is reflecting on the growth of the local business community as it celebrates its 10-year anniversary.

Skyline Internet, an internet marketing company, was established by colleagues Simon Mapplethorpe and David Hamilton in 2009. Having worked at the same web company, they saw the opportunity for a forward-thinking digital marketing agency at a time when the industry was still in its infancy.

After securing a small office space in Scunthorpe, Simon, Sales Director, and David, Technical Director, began working with clients in the Northern Lincolnshire area, and it wasn’t long before they expanded into the wider Lincolnshire and Yorkshire regions. Skyline Internet grew with the industry and developed their services to include website design and development, hosting and online support, and SEO and Pay Per Click marketing campaign management. They now have a team of six and have worked with over 300 clients across the UK. 

Simon said: “Demand has been quite extraordinary in the area over the last few years with local businesses realising the need for a strong online presence. In our first year of business, we began working with a small local business in Grimsby with a small spend of £50.00 per month to promote their products. We still work with them today and they turnover £500,000 a year in website sales alone.

“We have spent 10 years building the foundations of a good business and we now have a large client list, which we are very proud of. Our aim now is to enhance our range of services and offer an even better service for maintaining and planning the future growth of our clients’ online presence.”

In recent years, Skyline Internet has been an active member of the Business Hive, Grimsby’s enterprise support club that has recently expanded into Scunthorpe. Through their membership, Simon and his team have been able to strengthen their relationships with the Northern Lincolnshire business community.

Simon added: “The Business Hive has been fantastic in helping us grow our business in the Grimsby area. Our client list is as big in Grimsby as it is here in Scunthorpe, and the fact that I have a satellite office that I can use for meetings in Grimsby has been essential in helping the business grow in that area. The support of everyone at The Business Hive has also been great. We are constantly being asked if we can supply any training or networking material so that other members of the Hive can see what we are all about.”

Sam Burgess, Manager of the Business Hive said: “I’m thrilled to see Simon and David going from strength to strength in such a competitive industry.  Being able to support businesses in a way that adds value to them whether it’s offering them marketing support or being able to provide space for them to meet their clients is what we are all about”.
