CHICAGO, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Acquity Group (NYSE AMEX: AQ), a leading global Brand eCommerce® and digital marketing company, has partnered with Argo Tea, Inc. to support the brand's digital marketing capabilities as it expands across the U.S. and internationally.

A fast-growing, popular destination for tea lovers, Chicago-based Argo Tea is dedicated to bringing together tea, coffee and food artisans. The brand is best known for its "one customer and one cup at a time" experience. Argo Tea engaged Acquity Group to evolve its digital offerings both in-store and online to more accurately reflect the brand's promise across channels.

"Our customers have come to expect high-quality products from Argo Tea, and we want to ensure we deliver the best we have to offer, regardless of where our teas are purchased," said Arsen Avakian, Founder and CEO of Argo Tea. "Acquity Group's experience and culture is a natural fit for our needs. Acquity Group's data driven approach to Search and Display is innovative. We are looking forward to giving our customers 24/7 access to our brand through a focused digital strategy, providing community-focused information and valuable content across channels."  

As a strategic partner, Acquity Group will develop and manage Argo Tea's Search Engine Marketing (SEM) efforts to help the company build loyalty and appeal to their on-the-go customers.

Many of Argo Tea's digital marketing initiatives will be aimed at enhancing its loyalty program and increasing membership, particularly on mobile devices. With the help of Acquity Group, the program will encompass more personalized information, location-based specials and targeted promotions to expand on its existing program.  

"Partnering with a local, Chicago brand is always exciting for us," said Ray Grady, Executive Vice President at Acquity Group.
