The first quarter of 2019 was amazing. Lots of things happened! Here is a quick overview:
We spent the major portion of last years’ profit into a new workplace on Avenue Tervuren 36. We renovated from scratch, designs done by the team. We’re very happy to be here!
February was also the month in which we celebrated the minority stake Mountainview has bought in CLICKTRUST. We celebrated in style, with a conference we organised for our clients, inviting several high profile speakers. The event was a blast!
To finish off the hectic month of february, we went for a two day teambuilding in sunny Malaga. With both relaxing activities and teambuilding work, the trip was a success. Profit sharing among employees was announced. Yearly getaways are now a thing.
To finish off these amazing first three months of the year, we ended up winning a huge pitch in March. Details will follow later, once we have succesfully onboarded the client and all their massive brands…
We will now work on further improving employee onboarding and internal operational efficiency. Client acquisition will be done very selectively. Our focus goes to quality, not quantity.

It is no secret that CLICKTRUST and the digital strategy agency Mountainview get on well. We crossed paths two years back on a mutual client – and chemistry happened!
Today, Mountainview & CLICKTRUST work together on many clients. We share the same views on service, transparency and the role of an agency in the ever-increasing complex digital eco-system.
Concretely, Mountainview has taken a significant financial interest in CLICKTRUST as minority shareholder. This officializes our collaboration.
We have often discovered our extreme specialisation in analytics and biddable media has to be introduced when clients are ready for it. They need a certain level of digital maturity for us to be able to deliver good work. This is where Mountainview has proven very valuable to us. Their transparent, didactical approach prepares clients and helps them grasp digital as a whole, and allows them to understand where an expert agency like ourselves fits in.
We are extremely excited about this partnership – as we believe models like this are the working model for agencies of the future. Individual agencies that each have their own resources, expertise & clients – but that are able to join forces on common projects. This gives clients the best of both worlds : the ease of working with one entity for several services, and the expertise of working with an expert agency.
All this in full transparency.

CLICKTRUST grew from 4 people to 9 people over the course of one year. We weren’t doing too bad before, at least that is what we thought. We had clients staying with us for years, and had the occasional win of a new client. We didn’t do any marketing. We got business through referrals. All in all, that didn’t sound too bad.
After sitting down and carefully analyzing the market, we discovered where we can truly make a difference. Providing clients with a transparant service for digital media at a flat fee. No crazy media fees, no longwinded slide-decks, and no teams full of juniors.
By pure word of mouth, we managed to win a lot of business this year. BNP Paribas Fortis, Hello Bank, Birdee, ALD Automotive, Printdeal, Ladbrokes, Collishop , Centerparcs… The list is long. Why did these companies chose us? We stuck to our principles and committed to deliver only that what we know we do best. Combine this with a flat fee and we were a welcome change from other players that were either missing expertise or transparancy.
Our progress allowed us to recruit senior, highly talented staff relatively easily. The existing team members from before all stayed – allowing us to go passed a crucial point where the team today mainly consists of people with solid experience. This has now put us in a position where we can attract even more talented staff, as this industry is driven by people that want to learn from each other. The best place to do that is in a place where experienced, like-minded are sat in one place.
We are now looking for 3 more people in different roles. We will grow the team to invest more time in training and development.
