Christmas is coming, the office tree is up, the cards have been sealed, stamped and sent and the mince pies are most definitely being eaten in abundances.

As the end of 2017 draws closer, we have taken some time to reflect on what the year has brought to Blue Thirst.

The calculated number of cups of coffee consumed this year sits at 2080, not accounting for sleepy Mondays and busy periods! The sandwich van horn has rung 260 times this year.

December marks the 6-year milestone of Blue Thirst being a PPC Agency on the South Coast. It was founded in 2011 by Martin McAndrew, beginning the journey of the digital agency. Happy Birthday Blue Thirst!

In 2017, Blue Thirst continued to provide specialist PPC marketing to every client, whilst attracting many new clients looking to expand their business into paid search. Blue Thirst grew the business internationally, providing services to clients in Dubai and Gibraltar.


Blue Thirst welcomed two new members to the team, Tim and Katy, who are currently apprentices working towards level 3 qualifications with Bournemouth and Poole College. Tim is working hard for a qualification in Software Development, whilst Katy is becoming certified in Digital Marketing and Social Media.

Everyone on the team remains holding the title of being a Google Partner, with the certificates to prove it. Blue Thirst attended 1 training day at Google HQ, London (read more info here). Blue Thirst also remain as Bing Partners and Google Analytics Certified.

The team are always looking for training and courses to extend their knowledge into Digital Marketing, whilst currently working towards becoming Facebook Ad Qualified.

Over the past year, Blue Thirst gained a whopping 1,639,899 Google AdWords clicks on their paid adverts, whilst achieving a proud 135,335 online conversions – and counting.

There were 18 blog posts written and published in 2017, with new features to the website, including new client Case Studies. Check them out here.

Blue Thirst would like to wish everyone Season’s Greetings and we look forward to what 2018 will bring us.
