"After taking home gold last year for Best Integrated Paid Media Campaign, we decided to throw our hat in the ring again this year. We also saw success at the UK Search Awards 2023 whereby we took home Best Low Budget PPC Campaign and Best Integrated Campaign. Following a very busy year with huge client wins and impressive performance results produced quality material to work with for our entries. As a boutique agency we pride ourselves on our dedication and diligence to each client relationship and the clients from our nominated campaigns – The Online Lighting Store and Supersoil were ecstatic to hear of the recognition of the joint efforts."
