About Us

Proven Track Record

Our track record speaks for itself. High client retention, long-term partnerships & client testimonials. We’re proud of the work we do & strong client retention is a cornerstone of our business – we work with clients where we know we can make a difference & aren’t afraid to speak up if we don’t think something will work.

Specialists In Our Field

Looking for a full-service agency? That’s not us. We pride ourselves on being specialists in our areas of expertise – SEO, Digital PR & Paid Media. By specialising in only these areas we can ensure we are at the forefront of innovation, technology & Google’s latest algorithm – ensuring the best results for our clients.

Data Driven

While creativity & innovation are key to our success, data is at the heart of everything we do. Working to align our goals with our clients business goals, we work closely with your data to ensure that the leads we drive impact your overall business achievements, rather than just looking good on a Conversions spreadsheet.

Our Story

Find out about Cedarwood's back story & where it all began...

Cedarwood Digital was founded back in 2016 with the aim of moving away from the traditional full-service agency model to deliver a specialist skill set across Owned & Earned Media.

Over the last six years we’ve grown from a start-up in a small shipping container at The Sharp Project to a business that works with multi-million pound household names & is quickly developing a reputation as one of Manchester’s leading digital agencies, frequently recognised for our work – most recently named Small Digital Agency Of The Year at the UK Ecommerce Awards & taking home two European Search Awards for Best Small Integrated Agency & Best PPC Campaign.

By simplifying the client-agency relationship we’ve been able to work as an extension of our clients marketing function – something that’s become increasingly important in recent years – working closely with their teams to holistically deliver results & working closely with their data/product to maximise exposure & drive growth.

Today we have a loyal long-term client base & our retention rate speaks volumes about how we continue to deliver for our clients. We won’t take work on if we don’t think we can make a difference & this is key to our ethos, driving successful long-term partnerships.
