Digital Marketing is here in York!
It’s brilliant that Zigzag is getting some great uptake on our announcements in the news.
We really wanted to make sure that people realise that there is an alternative to the agency norm and we’re holding true to our promises of being an extension of our client’s marketing operations rather than a ‘distant service supplier’ agency who falls short on the effective relationship part of their work.
Some of the coverage we’ve had in the last 24 hours can be seen below:

A new digital era awakens from the cobbled streets of York
Former co-owner of We Are Boutique, Elliot Jones, announces new digital business offering
Elliot Jones, former co-owner of We Are Boutique & Digital Lead at both Carat North & MediaCom has announced his new business venture, Zigzag Media Ltd, in York.
Hailed as digital salvation specialists, Zigzag prides itself on offering a business to business structured service, rather than a traditional agency approach. The company has recently launched its website and boasts six staff members with a plan to add more over the next 12 months.
The new business offers a fully integrated digital service from paid search, SEO and outreach, to web development and content marketing – working with a number of companies already in retail, construction and property sectors.
Speaking of his new venture, Founder Elliot Jones said: “Zigzag is a new and exciting chapter in my career. I wanted to channel all the learnings from my previous roles into a structure that really met the needs of what today’s businesses are looking for. Companies aren’t looking for an ‘agency’ as such – they want an extension to their marketing department. Someone who understands their business needs and can help them set out and achieve their business objectives – that’s where we at ZigZag will step in.”
Mr Jones’ previous roles span over a decade in digital marketing including co-owner of We Are Boutique, digital director at Carat and head of digital at MediaCom (formerly Brilliant Media), Leeds.
Business partner to Mr Jones and heading up the digital department is Ryan Roodt. Roodt’s history in paid search began at Summit Media, Brilliant Media and more recently We Are Boutique working across brands such as DFS, Play.com, eBuyer, and Virtual College. Roodt commented: “I’m really pleased to be heading up the digital team at Zigzag. Our approach is simple – we aim to achieve a competitive return on investment for our clients. To achieve this, it is essential we employ knowledgeable staff across all accounts to ultimately deliver tangible results for our clients.”
Established in the beautifully cobbled streets of Micklegate, York, Zigzag has intentionally positioned itself away from the Leeds digital scene. Mr Jones continued: “I’ve worked in Leeds for many years and felt that to truly set ourselves apart from the agency smog, York was a good fit for us. We’re looking to avoid the disruptions and noise that is associated with the cluttered stereotypical agency ecosystem.”
