Bigmouthmedia featured in the Scotsman this week with an interview by Guy Dixon on bigmouthmedia's CEO Steve Leach:

"Bigmouthmedia, the Scottish internet marketing group, is to open offices in California and Dubai as it looks to win business in fast-growing overseas markets.

The Edinburgh company, which already has offices in London and New York, specialises in search engine optimisation, ensuring its clients' websites appear prominently on search engines such as Google.

The group also provides an internet brand positioning and protection service which monitors the use of company brands, images and assets online, looking for any potential misuses of brand, and an internet public relations service.

Steve Leach, founder and chief executive, said the business will make profits of around £4m on revenues of £15m in the year to October 2006.

He predicted that turnover could double to up to £30m next year as the company expands its client base, which already boasts over 50 household-name companies including Tesco, Hilton, BA and Barclays.

A key part of the group's growth plans will be expanding overseas, and establishing a presence in Los Angeles by March next year to complement the group's office in New York, which opened at the start of the year and employs four. An office in LA will put the group closer to one of its biggest clients, Hilton, and California's entertainment, travel and hospitality companies.

Leach, together with Heather Luscombe, founded bigmouthmedia in 1997, taking on three staff. The firm now employs around 50 people."
