Manchester's Growth Agency

With over 20 years of experience in the digital sector, it’s fair to say that technology is our bread and butter. We’ve earned a reputation for delivering top-line business growth and are committed to helping our clients transform their digital presence. We understand that there’s no one-size-fits-all strategy, so we work collaboratively with clients to tailor solutions that solve problems, accelerate growth and achieve results.

After working as a developer for several years, our founder Darren built up a desire to take control of his future by working for himself. And voilà… Digitl was born! Since 2007 we’ve been working with both international and local businesses of all sizes to revolutionise their digital footprints. Our business model puts multi-channel eCommerce at the centre of everything we do, and we’re proud to offer a complete solution for our clients. From the design and development of your website, to marketing and the implementation of chatbots, our team are multi-disciplinary and committed to delivering high quality work.

We’re proud to call Manchester’s Northern Quarter our home. It acts as a constant source of inspiration, and when we’re not at work you’re likely to catch us trawling around the various bars and restaurants on offer. Research proves time and time again that happy employees are more productive. We aim to support our team in all aspects of their lives. For us, it’s not all about 9-5. We’re much more interested in ensuring our team enjoy what they do both inside and outside of the office.


In the digital era if you’re not growing you’ll get left behind. As a team of thought-leaders we aim to think outside of the box, and we encourage our clients to do the same. After all, exceptional work isn’t achieved by playing it safe!


It’s fair to say that we’re passionate about the industry that we operate in. For us it’s a hobby just as much as it is our job. We therefore only work with clients if we can definitely provide value, and who we’ll enjoy working with too!


We could aim for mediocrity, but where’s the fun in that? As a team we set out to achieve big things. On the back of this, we believe accountability breeds excellence. As well as rewarding outstanding work, we dedicate ourselves to swiftly ameliorating work that doesn’t live up to expectations.


We may not be mind readers but we’re clear and coherent communicators, which in our opinion is the next best thing! Unlike some, we’re not here to confuse you with tech jargon. We’re transparent in the way we conduct our business, which means that we endeavour to provide impartial advice on the best solutions for your business.
