Glasgow social agency turns two and triples turnover


Proof of the thriving tech ecosystem north of the border, Scottish social media agency Hydrogen has celebrated its second year milestone with a triple-growth turnover.

From a three-person start-up, the specialist agency has grown to a serious contender in the space, boasting an impressive client roster with the likes of Subway on its books.

In the last year it has also moved to new offices, tripled its team to nine members as well as tripling its turnover.

“With madness of year one behind us I had initially aimed for slow, steady growth in year two to allow us to build all of the correct processes and procedures into the underlying business,” said managing director and co-owner Mike Scott.

“We weren’t pushing hard on the new business front to allow us time to get things ‘right’. What we weren’t planning on was the influx in requests that we were about to receive.

“It’s given us massive confidence in the model we operate and the offering we provide.”

In the past 12 months the company has worked with 14 brand new clients, including Subway, Finnieston Distillery Company, Crimestoppers, RSNO, College Development Network and Worldwide Cancer Research.

Hydrogen supports its clients in a range of areas from strategy to content creation and analytics.

In its third year, the team plans to continue to expand into a larger office, while also growing the team and client list.
