Our Digital Game Just Got Even Better

We acquired Rainforest Digital to give clients a wider range of digital marketing solutions and increased strategic expertise in SEM, social media, SEO and Amazon Marketing

We are proud to share that Jan Kelley has officially acquired Rainforest Digital, one of the first specialist search and social agencies in Canada to focus on Amazon Advertising solutions for vendors and sellers. This acquisition positions us to drive more results for clients by providing them with wider and deeper digital marketing services and solutions.

In order to help clients create more brand advocates, improve acquisition rates and increase customer retention, agencies must continually challenge the status quo. We began a transformation over five years ago to get ahead of changes in digital sales and marketing for our clients. We continue to invest in the areas that drive growth for our clients’ business and the acquisition of Rainforest Digital reflects that commitment.

As part of the acquisition;

Josiah Shelley

(formerly co-founder of Rainforest Digital) joins Jan Kelley as Vice President, Digital Strategy. Josiah started a mobile marketing SaaS company at age 19. The company provided a turn-key solution to enter the mobile space and shortly after landing a national retailer, he sold it. More recently, he co-founded Reach Digital, followed by Rainforest Digital in 2017.

Evan Tamblyn

also joins the Jan Kelley team as Director, Demand Generation. Former Vice President of Growth and Marketing at Reach Digital and Co-founder of Rainforest, Evan brings with him extensive experience in acquiring and nurturing customers through the digital marketing journey.
