Heartbeat Ideas and Heartbeat West Register 58% Growth in FY2012
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Drumbeat Digital, LLC, parent company to Heartbeat
Ideas and Heartbeat West, reported a 58% revenue increase for 2012.
The increase was the largest in the company's 15-year history.
Last year also saw Heartbeat expand its staff and launch a sister
agency, Heartbeat West, in Santa Monica, California. The combination of
growth and expansion led to Heartbeat's most successful year yet.
"Like all businesses we set financial goals every year, but this year my
expectations were blown out of the water," said Heartbeat Founder and
CEO Bill Drummy. "We opened Heartbeat West last January, our staff and
clients expanded, and revenue grew substantially. That's all fantastic,
but it's even more meaningful because we did it while doing the work we
aspire to. To have achieved all that, well, I'm grateful and looking
forward to what's shaping up to be a very xciting 2013."
Significant wins for the year included two major West Coast healthcare
clients with assignments as both consumer agency of record and digital
agency of record. In addition, Heartbeat Ideas in New York City saw a
plethora of new work in both cross-channel campaign development and
mobile application development for patients, healthcare professionals
and pharmaceutical sales force representatives.
Janelle Starr, SVP, General Manager of Heartbeat West reflected on her
first year running the new agency, "Opening Heartbeat West was a
significant move for us. We built a strong staff, a fresh environment,
and earned new clients that excite us. People worked hard and it's
incredibly rewarding to see it all pay off."
"In 2013, we will celebrate Heartbeat's 15th anniversary. As I look
back, I believe it's been our obsessive focus on creating innovative
marketing that breaks the confines of the regulated healthcare
environment has led to more distinctive work and a more inspired staff,"
said Mr. Drummy. "Can smart marketing help make people healthier We
damn-sure try to make that promise a reality every day."
