Digital marketing firm boots up for growth

The team at Code Galaxy WEB

Code Galaxy is recruiting extra staff and expanding its client-base after support from Boost’s Growth Support Programme. Blackpool-based Code Galaxy provides high-end website design, graphic design and digital marketing services to a range of local businesses and large organisations like Club Wembley and the NHS.

Nicky Speakman, who founded the business, has recruited a new member of staff to help with the management of new clients and plans to hire more employees as the business continues to grow.

In October 2017 Nicky’s wife, Mary, left her primary teaching career to co-run the business as both a husband and wife team and as business partners The business has also developed a three-year plan that aims to win major clients and more projects through greater collaboration.

Nicky has more than ten years’ experience in building websites, as well as an extensive knowledge of running digital marketing campaigns. He is also a former university lecturer who has taught digital and creative industry skills to aspiring technology students.

Boost is Lancashire's Business Growth Hub and is led by the Lancashire LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) and Lancashire County Council and supported by funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Nicky heard about the Boost programme through Boost’s senior growth explorer Yusuf Musa from Enterprise4All, who advised on the support available to help develop Code Galaxy.

Yusuf visited Nicky to complete an in-depth diagnostic of the business aspirations over the next three years. He also booked Nicky onto several tailored workshops designed to fulfil Nicky’s requirements.

Nicky said: “Our clients and their businesses are all unique, have different approaches, needs and ambitious goals. This is why we offer such a bespoke service. We truly love what we do, and we look forward to working with our clients on their new projects.

“Yusuf was great, the work that he did with us really opened my eyes to the kinds of business development I need to do to make our business aspirations a reality. The sessions that I have attended so far have been really informative and I’m keen to carry on developing and growing my network.”

Yusuf added: “Nicky has turned his business dream into a reality and we’re thrilled to have been able to support him in getting this venture up and running. We’ll continue to support Nicky on the next steps to make sure there is a successful future ahead for him and his team.”

Code Galaxy is currently working on the development of a bespoke website for a local Blackpool charity, Blue Skies, to help them raise awareness of the charity and their events.
