14 years ago we were a one-man-band startup explaining PPC advertising to local businesses. Together we have built SearchStar into one of the UK’s leading independent digital media buying, analytics and conversion optimisation agencies. But where next?

Today, we’re bursting with excitement - and somewhat relieved - to be able to share with you that SearchStar has been acquired by global translation and digital marketing services provider, Welocalize, Inc..

What Does This Mean?

In the short term, not an awful lot. For now, little will change and we’ll continue to operate under the name you all know and love; SearchStar. We have ambitions to build a more international service alongside our existing UK business and its probable that we will re-brand over the next 6-12 months to reflect this.

As a part of Welocalize, we’ll be able to offer services across the entire customer journey, including ad translation, multilingual SEO, content creation, multimedia localisation, and sentiment analysis across many languages. It’s genuinely exciting to know that our technological and analytical capabilities are expanding and that we’ll have access to a larger dedicated global team for more comprehensive account management.

Finally, and crucially, we’d like to send massive thanks all of our clients, teams, friends and partners for your loyalty and support over the years. We’ve always tried to be a collaborative, open business and look forward to our continued partnership and work together.

No doubt we’ll have more news to share with you over the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, if you have any question at all about this news please let us know and we’ll happily answer them. Just pop us a message here >>>
