Our Mission: to awaken performance potential by providing expert-led digital marketing delivery, commercially-focused data insight, and outcome-oriented education.

Who are Sleeping Giant Media?

Sleeping Giant Media is an award-winning digital marketing agency providing digital marketing services for businesses that wish to grow online.

Ok, now that the formalities are out of the way, what are we really about?

We’ve been around a while now, forming way back in September 2008 when our founders, Luke and Ant, had the genius idea of starting a business during the credit crunch! Since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength, growing to a team of over 70 passionate and talented digital marketing experts and fine-tuning our GIANT approach to help our amazing clients grow their businesses online.

As a business, we integrate our core ‘CAPES’ values – Communication. Accountable, Positive, Effective and Self-Aware – into everything that we do, making sure these values shine through in all the GIANT work we deliver for our clients.

One thing that sets us apart from the rest is our people-first approach.

What’s an agency without its team, right? Our people are the ones who deliver our award-winning service, so we invest heavily in them. And it pays off! By putting so much time and effort into our teams we have created a culture of trust, openness, and honesty, leading to some pretty awesome results for our clients.

We are always busy building a team of talented individuals who are constantly questioning, testing, and discovering new ways to deliver digital marketing to our clients – big and small. That’s the Giant way.

Aside from the people, one of the best parts of working for us is our amazing office. (You may well have heard about our famous ball pit by now …)

Using the Google 360 video, take a tour of what we like to call ‘Giant Towers’ and visit the purple side.

From our office in Folkestone, we boast a full-size adult ball pit for up to 30 adults, pool tables, a bar area, foosball, table tennis, views of France, Spotify everywhere, awesome workspaces, and fish that aren’t great conversation but are quite pretty.
