July 14, 2016 – Versique today announced the rebrand of its digital marketing agency to Parqa – A Versique Company. The Versique digital marketing agency was established in 2013 and is led by Tony Sorensen and Chris Peterson. Parqa (pronounced “par-ka”) is a demand activation agency that specializes in digital marketing services for companies ranging from high-growth to Fortune 500s nationwide, with services including digital marketing strategy, inbound marketing, content marketing, marketing automation, web analytics and reporting, SEO (search engine optimization), SEM/PPC (search engine marketing/pay per click), social media marketing, and local search optimization.
Parqa works with clients from a variety of industries including, ecommerce, healthcare, staffing, and manufacturing. The agency has doubled in revenue every year since 2013, has 15 employees, and a collective 70 years of digital marketing experience. Parqa helps companies build brand awareness and attract qualified leads, which generates revenue and provides significant and measurable ROI.
“We’ve been helping our clients grow their businesses and brands through inbound marketing since 2013,” said Tony Sorensen, CEO and Founder of Versique and Parqa. “By rebranding the digital marketing agency to Parqa, it will provide clarity in the marketplace about our company’s services. People already know Versique as leading executive search and consulting firm, and now they will know Parqa as a leading demand activation agency.”
The Versique digital marketing agency was initially established in 2013, based on a successful partnership with Chris Peterson and a strong vision for growth through marketing by Sorensen, who took risks within marketing early on, including investing in SEO and PPC years before it was the industry standard. Having seen significant ROI and revenue growth by using digital marketing strategies and tactics in his own firm, he knew the impact it could have on other companies.
“As a company, Versique receives 50% of its business from inbound marketing sources,” said Sorensen. “By driving leads to our recruiters and sales team, we’ve increased revenue and efficiencies, allowing us to serve our clients better, keep top talent, and branch out into additional markets.”
