An agency of only two years (and a bit) old, Rise at Seven has already made huge marks on the industry. We’ve worked with some huge global brands and created some of the most talked-about campaigns in the space, all while growing our business from two to over 100 employees. Yeah, it’s been busy.
So what exactly do we do?
Rise at Seven is a search-first creative agency, combining creative campaigns, digital PR and technical SEO services to drive organic search demand to our clients, and converting this demand once customers are there. It’s all about standing out, daring to be different and making sure our clients are the ones in the centre of every relevant conversation.
Combining creative and technical expertise is what makes our work work. Every single thing we do is underlined by this key combination.
Going into every single project with a search-first mindset has been extremely effective, so much so that we were named the Best Large SEO Agency in our second year by the UK Search Awards. Receiving this award was a proud moment for us, proving that our work was doing exactly what we wanted it to do, and helping us bring even more ideas to life.
As well as the Best Large SEO Agency award, we’ve been lucky enough to receive multiple UK Search Awards. After working hard on every aspect of a campaign and watching the results roll in, these awards validate every single person’s work, from the client to the agency teams. For us, these awards are a huge marker of our success as an agency, and we always look forward to the event to meet the other incredible people nominated.
Doing the work and seeing results is rewarding in itself, but no one would say no to a nice shiny UK Search Award, right?
In 2020, after a very difficult start to the year (and the agency, which was only founded in June 2019), we were extremely proud to be the winners of three UK Search Awards. This was the year we were named the Best Large SEO Agency, as well as winning awards for our ‘Sandtone’ and ‘Christmas Tinner’ campaigns. Our clients, Parkdean Resorts and GAME, were ecstatic to receive these awards, and it grew the relationship between agency and client immensely.
We won three more in 2021, for two campaigns we love. The World’s First Hedgehog Holiday Park was created for Parkdean Resorts, and was exactly what it sounds like. The TikTok Top campaign was something we’d never done before, reverse engineering a trend to drive traffic to our client PrettyLittleThing’s website. Both of these campaigns were huge projects, pushing the boat out and creating something completely different to what had been done before, so it was a very proud moment to be recognised for them.
The UK Search Awards have been a very valuable part of our success as an agency. Awards prove to clients that our ideas really are great. They bring the client-agency relationship more strength and trust than ever. They reward and motivate the teams working hard on bringing campaigns to life. They raise our profile, bringing talented prospective employees straight to us.
Basically, we love everything to do with the UK Search Awards, and you should, too.
