WHAT’S NEXT 15?

Our brands and people.

We work with some of the biggest brands in technology and beyond including Apple, Cisco, Google, Hasbro, Marriott, Microsoft, Sony, Telefónica Digital and YouTube. We have an extraordinary track record in retaining business in the long term too because we keep them ahead of whatever’s next in an age of unprecedented change.

Making brands famous is in our DNA and is behind our name, the origin of which was explained by Tim Dyson: “Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes, but we care about what happens next.”

It could be you.

What’s next in terms of how our Group grows? If you’re an entrepreneurially-minded organisation looking for kindred spirits, it could be you! We love to work with enthusiastic teams who love their work. That’s why we don’t buy businesses: we invest in people, and then give them every encouragement to get on and do what they do best – with minimal interference from us.

CRE increases the profits of companies scientifically by analyzing their websites’ visitors, creating optimized pages, and then A/B testing them to measure the increase in sales. Its proprietary Wins Database allows it to draw upon over a decade of experiments, so it knows what works in each situation.

The company’s book, Making Websites Win, is an Amazon #1 best-seller in 15 categories.

CRE has twice been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise—the UK’s highest official award for business—from Her Majesty The Queen.
