DGENCY IS FOUNDED
The company was founded by Shawon Kayum with the help of his great brother friend S M Monzurul Hasan Shemul, legendary pioneer in the PPC industry in Bangladesh (Shawon’s words, not his. He’d be too embarrassed to read this, so let’s quickly move on).
SIGNED THE FIRST CLIENT
Got the first-ever Google Ads (back then it was AdWords) campaign setup and optimization work order from the freelance marketplace Fiverr for a US-based lost pet finder company, mylostpetalert.com. Still, can’t replicate the excitement of signing the first PPC client.
FIRST OFFICE SPACE
Dgency Moved from shared office space to first-ever dedicated office space in Kazipara Mirpur with the help of another great friend Toriqul Hossen Polash.
HIRED OUR FIRST FULL-TIME EMPLOYEE
Hired our first full-time employee, Niaz Nadvi, to work on a lot of things at a time… all. day. night. long.
HIRED OUR FIRST 3 INTERNS
Hired our first three interns, Muntasir, Priya and Salman to work on keyword research and Google search campaign creation. They were amazing!
SIGNED OUR 50TH CLIENT
Signed our 50th client and growing faster than we can manage….. Getting lots of referral businesses.
MOVED TO A BIGGER OFFICE
Dgency moved from Kazipara Mirpur office space to Mohakhali DOHS office space with the help of another great friend Seoul Islam. It was a major business move!
SIGNED OUR 100TH CLIENT
We signed our 100th client. Century has done but no crazy celebrations! Still, there was crazy work to be done.
WE’RE A GROWTH TEAM
Our team is growing fast, and we’re starting to look and feel like a small business. But now we need to start looking for a new BIG commercial office.
FINALLY, WE MOVE INTO A COOL OFFICE
With the blessings of almighty, we’ve met our dream client, trusted mentor, and guardian H. Rashid Nizam. He literally forced us with his great affection to move our Dgency headquarter in Banani 11 No Road. It’s a very COOL open office space and four times the size of our last one. Now we actually have enough space to play football without hitting the ball to our work stations.
A Note From Our CEO Shawon Kayum
The people I’ve the great fortune to work with every single day are the main reason for our ongoing business success. And hopefully continued…
I work alongside some of the smartest, passionate and friendliest men and women I’ve ever met. I’m far from the ideal boss, and mistakes abound, but there’s something unquantifiable about coming to work every day with the same people you’d want to be around on long vacation.
My Dgency team and I get to work with incredible Business Owners, CEO’s, VP’s and Marketing Directors every day. Our clients get me out of bed in the morning, and if it wasn’t for their ongoing trust, support and enthusiasm, there would be no Dgency to wake up to.
So to my team, and to my clients, thank you.
Founder and CEO
