Time flies when you’re having fun, right? Years can go by in a blink of an eye. It’s been a wild ride. And yet, it’s still just the beginning at KW Marketing.

When our founder, Kate Williams, first created KW Marketing in 2017, her dream was to merge her passion for creativity, analytics and digital marketing and make a living from it. It’s the humblest of beginnings – a spare bedroom pipe dream that grew and grew into something tangible. Kate worked hard to make this dream a reality and well, the story is the kind of stuff that fairy tales are made of.

Fast forward seven years to today and KW Marketing has transcended from its humble beginnings as a South Devon-based start-up into a nationally recognised, awards-nominated full-service digital marketing agency that has helped their global clients soar in their digital marketing. From the local bakery down the road to the worldwide call to arms, empowering women across the continents – KW Marketing is the driving force behind these businesses striving to make a mark in their industries and help to be the change in the world.

As this week marks KW Marketing’s 7th birthday, we’re taking a look back over the previous year to see the progress we’ve made and thank both our clients and amazing team for all they’ve done during this past year.

We began working with 22 new clients

It’s hard to believe that we’re only in May as we have taken on so many new incredible clients. From the formidable Buy Women Built movement to the delicious and moreish Cornish Cheese Co – the team has been busy on incredible new campaigns and engaging content calendars. We’re so proud to be representatives of some fabulous brands – you can read more on who we’ve recently worked with in our case studies!

But it goes without saying that we wouldn’t be here without our cheer squad from the beginning – the funky and fun Popcorn Kitchen and colossal Disruptive HR. These clients have been here from the very beginning and have enjoyed the journey with us – it goes without saying that we wouldn’t be where we are without them.


From hosting our very own event to appearing in national news, it’s safe to say that KW Marketing has been everywhere. Though new to the press scene, Kate herself has also enjoyed her fair share of column space – in just 2024 she has spoken with Exeter Living on her ‘Journey to the Job’ and was even featured in the South West Business Insider Media 42 under 42 campaign. An incredible achievement and one that has been a long time coming. We’re so proud of her!

A look back on KW Marketing’s learnings

KW Marketing’s achievements over the years have been a reflection of the incredible team who are continuously striving for growth and development and in turn, have made KW Marketing one of the nation’s leading workplaces with offices in both Exeter and London.

Being recognised as an industry thought leader has been on the forefront of our founder Kate’s mind since KW Marketing was first created, with her ethos being that the more you learn, the more you grow – and the more clients’ businesses will flourish!

KW Marketing was born out of passion, energy, and lots of hard work. But the real reason it was born was to HELP businesses see the true value and potential to GROW, using the power of digital marketing. It’s a simple mission, but one that drives us forward each and every day. Here’s to the next seven years, KW Marketing!
