Our Story

Spring 17

Avid Panda is born

Avid Panda was born in the spring of 2017 when our founder and lead ideologist, Alex, decided to follow his dream and created his own digital marketing agency. Having encountered many businesses that struggled to be heard online, in his years of experience in the digital marketing industry, he finally took matters into his own hands and started helping businesses grow.

Getting Accelerated

Soon after, the agency joined the NatWest Accelerator Programme with the goal to become more efficient and scale up. Thanks to Alex’s informed, SEO-driven approach and his ambition to always be best, it didn’t take long for Avid Panda to find its place in the digital marketing scene in Birmingham.

Growing Into A Market Leader

Since then, what was once a one-man little start-up grew into a leading digital marketing agency run by a small team of some of the best marketing experts in the West Midlands. Now, you can find the Avid Panda team in our office in the beautiful Royal town of Sutton Coldfield where we spend our days aiding local, national and international businesses in their quest to establish and grow their online presence.

Our Values

Avid Panda’s brand personality is built around our core values: Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, Relationships and Self-development and they are reflected in everything we do.

Honesty

We believe honesty is important because we want a clean conscience and to be able to sleep at night knowing we’ve done right by our partners.

Accountability

We are always transparent in our relationship. If there is a success we celebrate it. If we make a mistake, we own it, we learn from it and we fix it.

Self-development

Continual improvement is another value both in our personal and professional lives. It’s why we stay on top of our game.

Integrity

We are committed to delivering the best results for our clients and we take responsibility for the quality of our work.

Integrity

We work to build long-lasting relationships with our clients based on mutual trust.

Our Name

We would love to tell you the exciting tale of a (mis)fortune fall into a panda enclosure, which set in motion a dramatic rescue mission in what would probably be the most nerve-wracking day of any zoo keeper’s career, resulting in our Panda in Chief experiencing a moment of revelation after being petted by a real panda. Unfortunately, we can’t. 

In reality, the Avid Panda brand was born from a well-calculated approach rooted in trusting the power of data. Our Panda in Chief used the latest tech to analyse different factors and create the ideal brand name. To this day, harnessing data and embracing technology is at the foundation of our digital marketing approach.
