Our history, approach, results…
Founded by a diverse group of four in 2012 from Glasgow, UK.
We saw the world spending more money and time online, but so many sites with poor conversion problems — meaning they get a lot of visits that aren’t converting to sales.
We decided we could crack the problem. So far, we have delivered and grew our team with twenty-one digital marketing professionals in 2020.
Looking forward, we forecast continued growth of our remote model, award-winning digital marketing professionals, and our amazing clients.
Working with six-figure local bricks and mortar businesses to eight-figure international eCommerce brands, we have built a wealth of expertise in growing a diverse range of businesses in B2B & B2C marketplaces.
We are straight-talking friendly professionals who are all about optimising the entire consumer decision journey through insight-driven campaigns.
We get to know your business, industry, customers, competitors, short and longterm objectives, and all the relevant data points so we understand your business just like our own.
Remote since 2012. We have proven we don’t need to be rooted in the same place to be on the same page to deliver the most demanding of client objectives.
Our client retention rate is a testament to our team’s pure ability to consistently deliver results for our clients, solidifying us as a top-performing digital agency.
We can’t be everyone’s cup of tea, and that’s ok. What’s important is, we love what we do & our clients love the results.
In a world filled with egotistical vanity metrics, we ignore the facade of fake views, likes, comments, and shares to focus on real trackable growth metrics and positive returns.
2019 saw our client’s revenues grow from 23% to a jaw-dropping 3000%, and we personally hit our all-time high for, number of customers onboarded in a single year.
Looking forward, we forecast continued growth of our remote team, award-winning digital marketing professionals, and our amazing clients.
We can turn your goals into actions with visual insights allowing us to step by step create, track, convert, measure, report & repeat success for you.
Yes, we do websites and ads, but we’re in the business of digital transformation that produces results. Find out if we fit.
What’s with the name PureRapid? As a business, we generate fast tangible results for our clients. Being a company with Scottish roots, some of us use the word “rapid” in place of the word “fast”. “Pure Rapid” just reinforces a high rate of speed. We produce results Pure Rapid. So that’s our name!
Is our brand’s strapline just a play on words? No, we do exactly what it says on the tin, “Keeping it strictly PG, we grow businesses and brands fast as Duck!”. It also connects nicely to our brand logo.
Why did we choose the Rubber Duck logo to visually represent our brand? Supporting our strapline, the rubber duck is a symbol of happiness and childhood memories. It’s a visual we can all connect with regardless of nationality, age, and race, without political distinction. Like our business, it’s fun and it stands out in a same same crowd, much like our positive results do.
What’s our story? We all have a story, and every story has a message. Childhood is as good a place as any to start. Typically filled with imagination, determination and for most, happiness.
Along the way, we can get lost in the formalities of “growing up”. Like Ferris Bueller, the king of carpe diem, once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while you could miss it.” – We love the 80s. Don’t judge us lol
Childhood movies and nostalgia aside, we fast-forward to 2012 where our founding partners chose to seize the day by taking the unnecessary risks of leaving their secure high paying jobs and selling their profitable businesses, to collaborate on a new venture in pursuit of greater success with something they all loved. PureRapid was born, and the rest is history.
Something that was and still is important to our team, is the decision to only connect with businesses and brands who love their business as much as we love ours. We value creativity, imagination, and determination.
On a serious note, as a digital agency, communication is a big part of what we do. We help companies communicate: within the public sphere and with their customers. For any project, in any media, it all comes down to what we communicate about that client’s brand. How we say it. Who we say it too. And what others say once they get our message.
But communication works in two ways. We aren’t just talking; we’re listening. Listening to our clients, because that’s how we form strong relationships. Listening to our clients’ customers, because how they respond is how we know we’re doing our job. Listening to our team members, because good ideas come from our collective experience, and knowing when to try something new.
Our purpose is to build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our clients by using our knowledge, experience, and creativity to communicate their brand’s message effectively, and bring it to the right audience, in the right places, at the right time.

Capabilities: We don’t take on every client. If your brief is not within our capability with regard to time, budget or resources, or if you don’t meet our client requirement checklist, we will politely decline. We love what we do, and we stay in our lane. For us, its more important to say no thank you, than promise the moon.
Standards: Whether we are running a simple Facebook ads campaign to generate leads for a small business or we are tasked to strategise and implement the full works for an international eCommerce brand, our approach is driven with equal effort to achieve maximum results.
Communication: As a digital agency, clear communication is at the heart of everything we do. We are here to listen, research, perform, measure, improve, report, and repeat. We use a platform called Slack to keep conversations organised, and in the words of their marketing team, “the smart alternative to email”. It simply gives everyone on your team, and ours a shared view of progress and purpose. Everything syncs across all team’s devices. It’s super easy to use and great for keeping everyone up to speed.
Onboarding: To save us both time and resources, and increase client satisfaction, we use Zapier to automate certain tasks. With multi-step workflows connecting multiple apps, our onboarding process happens easily and instantaneously. Learn more about our onboarding process and automation for your business here.
Bottom line: We are what our clients need us to be. Approachable, capable, organised, flexible, reliable, big enough to deliver, small enough to care, & results driven.

With the right budget, we can develop an optimised digital marketing strategy to reach the objective of any ambitious business or brand. First, please check out our client requirement checklist.
CLIENT REQUIREMENT CHECKLIST
- Your product or service is obviously fan-bloody-tastic!
- You are also enthusiastic about your business and the growth potential.
- You are actively in the market to hire our services.
- You are authorised to make a YES/NO decision, including monetary.
- You know the basic figures & data from your company. Budget, revenue, expenses…
- We love working with ambitious startups, but you must have funding in place.
- Whilst we list our pricing structure, you understand our focus for you is ROI+.
Let’s find out if we are a good fit for each other. Our 15-minute discovery call is a two-way conversation, not a sales pitch. We will ask specific questions to understand your pain points, business, budget, and overall needs. You can ask us anything you want to know about us and our services. If we can help your business and you want to explore the options available to you, we can move forward. If not you will have received some good advice with no-obligations.
If we both identify that we are a good fit for each other, we will offer to…
- Run a competitor analysis
- Identify growth opportunities
- Create a proposal with costings
Disclaimer: Please understand that whilst the information we gather and present during this discovery process is highly beneficial to the recipient, whether they proceed to hire us or not, the time taken by us for analysis, audit, and proposal creation utilises substantial resources. Therefore, we politely ask that all inquiries genuinely meet the points listed on our client requirement checklist. If you work at another agency and you are “researching”, please don’t. Instead, why not head over to our menu and press the contact link. On that page you will find “Opportunities”. We might just have room for you on our growing team. We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
