Inspiring journeys to work

Alessio Messaggi, Paid Search Specialist at Jellyfish

A visit from the world’s biggest boutique digital marketing agency

In the beginning, there were websites…

And in 2019 it is estimated that those websites will account for over 63.6% of all global media ad spend, a sum of nearly $327.28bn.  The revolution that was the World Wide Web dominates societal, economic, and political change around the globe and is the fastest growing global economy.

We were, therefore, delighted to welcome Alessio Messaggi, Paid Search Specialist, at Jellyfish the world’s biggest boutique digital marketing agency to talk to us about the science behind Google, the scale of the digital ecosystem and the different ways he spends his clients’ paid media budget.
