Smart Cookie Triples Revenue after US Expansion

Smart Cookie is an award-winning specialist creative technology agency from the South East of England, also operating in Dallas, Texas. They help clients engage with their customers, in interactive and visual ways, by maximizing the potential of cutting edge technology.

It became clear that if Smart Cookie wanted to attract more top US clients it would need a local presence. The UKTI introduced the company to the Dallas Chamber of Commerce which provided on-the-ground support with establishing a business presence in the US.

Turning to UKTI, Smart Cookie was provided with a range of support programs to help increase market presence in the US:

  • Passport to Export – the UKTI program that helps businesses to prepare for international markets; the company attended various courses covering issues faced by exporters
  • International Trade Adviser (ITA) – provided feedback about the company’s plans and advice about how to achieve its goals
  • Funding through UKTI’s Export Market Research Scheme (EMRS) and Market Visit Grants – supported several visits by the company to the US to research Dallas (where American Airlines is based), meet potential new clients, and build on existing client relationships.

In March 2013, Smart Cookie opened an office in Dallas which included a development studio. The company’s American client base has grown quickly, as has its international staff, which has grown nearly 400% since July 2012. Smart Cookie’s revenue has almost tripled from £1.1 million to £3 million in the past two years.
