We’ve finally recovered from The Big Chip Awards. We had a great night, but the highlight has to be winning the award for ‘Best Use of Search’.
‘Best Use of Search’ is the category which epitomises our work. We build search engine friendly websites, drive search engine traffic to websites sites, monitor the results and build on the findings… but we also look at the human elements of making sure the content they find is what they need, easy to navigate and encourages them to convert.
I was ecstatic to be shortlisted in this category, and thought we would have a hard time beating Fast Web Media with their work for big brand Bravissimo.
That must have been a great campaign to work on – what opportunities you have for link bait with a site full of big breasts!
Fast Web Media were also shortlisted this year for two categories in the Revolution awards. (I have no idea whether they won though because the results were on revolutionawards.com in a 18MB PDF which made my browser crash).
We were also up against Feather Brooksbank with their search marketing campaign launch for Lakeland Leather. Another very well respected UK agency with offices in Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leads.
They have also had recognition for the quality of their work, and won the Star Award at the Scottish Marketing Society Awards earlier this year.
We had a fab time at the Awards – we chatted to our industry peers, the food was wonderful and we drank lots of wine. There is a video of our table at the moment the results were read out, but I think it may be too cringworthy to post.
And Sam was so pleased at our success that he went home early to redecorate his apartment in celebration… he aparently made a very thorough job of it.
