History[edit]

Founded in 1994, Fast Web Media initially focused on website development and produced the first Premier League website. In 1998, the company was bought by Fast Search & Transfer ASA, a major internet infrastructure corporation focusing on Search and Image/Video software. Since 2003 Fast Web Media has been delivering Search Engine Optimisation services to clients including Carling and the Premier League. Current clients also include Bravissimo, Cobra Beer and Coors Light.

In 2012, Fast Web Media launched its cloud-based digital marketing products: FWM and FWM WeatherFIT.[2] They allow companies or search agencies to localise and optimise search campaigns or content using real-time or forecast local weather data; users control which pay-per-click ads are displayed based on the weather. The weatherFIT platform won both the Innovation Award and the Grand Prix at the 2012 European Search Awards.[3] In 2012 it won the Best PPC Management Software award at the UK Search Awards [4] and Best Use of Search Marketing at the 2013 Rev Awards.[5]
