About Construction Growth Generator

Our business title says exactly what we are as we like to be clear, concise and specific about where we believe our business skills & acumen can help others.

We are the pooling of resources and experience of two separate businesses-Digital Associate and Advance Group who are near neighbours regardless of what their different phone number area codes may suggest (historic factors!). In early 2017 when the companies previously shared a different common location they assisted each other recognising that their skill-sets were complementary, and their businesses whilst separate and distinct, had several overlaps & common opportunities. In late 2018 the move to larger premises by Digital Associate next to Advance Group’s premises (they’d made the same move earlier) meant that the 4 partners picked up again and realised that the growth of each business in the intervening period had added much in capacity & capability, and that working together in the construction industry & related markets offered a huge opportunity.

And so, it came to be that Construction Growth Generator was formed, and the intention was to offer a complete lead generation & business marketing service for businesses involved in the wider construction marketplace, where 3 of the 4 partners had spent considerable time with proven results over many years. Whilst the difference in age between the oldest & youngest partners spans nearly quarter of a century, we all share a common passion & outlook to assist businesses in the construction sector in their growth and offer a complete support function for every aspect of our customers’ sales pipelines.

Mike, Simon, Ian & Chris, and their colleagues, look forward to working with construction industry businesses wanting to grow, and seeking the professional partners to help generate that growth, and utilise the full marketing resources and experience available to do so.
We welcome any enquiry and are happy to chat without obligation or expectation, as the passion & drive to succeed together is something that we are proud to demonstrate to any interested prospective partners.

Ian also admits to working in a time long before the internet and the latest digital marketing tools that are now available. Whisper it quietly but he also remembers a time when research from directories, using libraries and waiting three days to follow up ‘snail mail’

As such Ian was a prime driver in the creation of Construction Growth Generator.
