Tootle has struck up a partnership with Climb Online, the digital marketing agency founded by BBC Apprentice winner Mark Wright, .
Climb Online will now play an instrumental role in Tootle’s continuous growth, utilising its unique software and industry leading expertise to help create paid search with the aim to increase the platform’s online engagement.
Founded by Wright in January 2015, Climb Online the digital marketing agency was the first Apprentice-born business to turnover in excess of £1 million in its first year of trading, being profitable from month two, and able to return Lord Sugar’s initial investment of £250,000 by month nine.
Tootle chief executive, Gordon Tulloch, said: “I am delighted that Tootle have joined forces with Climb Online to help deliver our online marketing strategy.
“We look forward to operating with like-minded individuals providing the right digital insight with an agile delivery. It is obvious that their drive and energy match our company culture, and we feel it will be an excellent, long-term working relationship.”
The new partnership also follows Tootle’s most successful year to date – following an announcement in September 2016 that the business is growing at an average rate of 52% month on month, together with the appointments of high level industry experts, Geoffrey Page-Morris and Roddy Graham, as non-executive Directors.
Climb Online chief executive, Mark Wright, said: “When I first heard about Tootle I was extremely excited about both the brand and concept, and certainly feel that they will quickly become one of the most successful online car selling platforms within the UK.
“In turn, I am even more excited about the fact Climb Online will be instrumental in helping Tootle achieve its growth objectives, and am very encouraged by the results we are seeing already.”
