Who are we?

Growl is a boutique agency focused on organizations with an ambitious growth focus. We offer a highly integrated approach between online marketing, websites, and apps, that supports our clients’ growth.

No yes-men

Our work takes knowledge and experience as its starting point. When you work with Growl, we see you as a partner. We deal with the budget as if it were our own. What’s more, if we don’t believe in the plan, we’re not afraid to say no. If the project does not fall within our area of expertise, we will guide you to the perfect partner.

Lasting impact

We believe in guiding with impact, in such a way that we will make ourselves redundant in the long run. We help your organization make a leap forward. To this end, we are setting up a system where knowledge transfer is crucial. This is how we make a lasting impact.

Hunger for knowledge

We have an unending hunger to improve ourselves as professionals, and to learn from people and experiences. One is never too old to learn.

Open communication

Open communication is the basis of any good relationship. Failure is allowed, as long as it leads to moments of learning. In addition, honesty makes everyone happier.

Cooperation is key

We have a wide range of services, but believe in the power of collaboration. If you have an existing partner or supplier, we will work together additionally. Value creation for you as a customer is paramount.

Take hold of your knowing

We don’t believe in the concept of a 360° agency as a “one stop shop” for all marketing and digital needs. We specialise in various areas where we can ensure effective added value and high quality. If we cannot help you with a particular request, we will refer you to persons we trust ourselves.

Structure without politics

We work in a structured way to get the best results. We do not believe in internal company politics and unnecessary hierarchy. Good ideas stay good, no matter who came up with them. Feedback is something that is given and received.

People first

We accept people for their way of being and we welcome new team members with open arms. Everyone is treated with respect and a smile. We see diversity (including diversity of thought) as an added value.

History

Growl was born out of SiteOptimo (online marketing and consulting) and CodeCliff (web and app development). With over 12 years of experience in web and digital, we take you by the hand in your growth story.

European team of experts

Growl works remote-first. We have an office in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. However, people who work for us may choose from where they work: in the office or remotely. We have a close-knit internal culture and see Europe as our playing field. A mix of different European cultures contributes to the diversity of our team and our approach to our clients.
