CINCINNATI, Ohio — Relequint, (relequint.com) a digital agency specializing in inbound marketing for B2B tech, healthcare and manufacturing companies, today announced the acquisition of ZoomSpring, a Greater Cincinnati-based digital marketing agency specializing in SEO and pay-per-click advertising.
Relequint was founded in 2015 by Ran Mullins, a digital brand executive and serial entrepreneur, who has led large-scale web design and development projects as well as full brand strategy and marketing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies.
ZoomSpring CEO Jordan Godbey founded the company in 2011 to lead SEO and PPC campaigns for local and national manufacturing companies. Mullins and Godbey met through a mutual friend.
Mullins said Godbey’s expertise in analytics, search engine optimization and pay-per-click advertising complements Relequint’s inbound marketing strategy, providing more opportunities to convert leads to customers. Godbey founded Cincinnati’s first SEO-focused Meetup group, now called the Cincinnati Digital Marketing Meetup. Today the group has nearly 600 members across the tri-state area.
“Jordan's digital strategy offering for ZoomSpring dovetailed beautifully with my vision for the future of Relequint,” said Mullins, CEO of Relequint. “Both Jordan and I are results-focused marketers in that we focus on bottom-line business objectives instead of just engagement-focused activities to drive traffic. We’re all about providing sales-qualified leads that convert to customers.”
Godbey will receive equity ownership in Relequint and will serve as Relequint’s Senior Vice President of Digital Strategy to begin his partnership role.
“With Relequint, I’m looking forward to providing ROI-focused digital marketing strategy that will return more than any single channel,” Godbey said. “Rather than measuring marketing performance in likes and shares, we measure in dollars and cents.”
ZoomSpring will be relocating from Newport, KY to Relequint’s new offices at 1010 Race St. in downtown Cincinnati. Relequint plans to make several more hires in the second, third and fourth quarters of this year.
