As a digital marketing agency working in a competitive space, getting shortlisted and winning awards is hugely important to us. Not only does it reward and recognise our team for the market leading work they are producing every day, but it sets a standard for what good work looks like within the industry. To maintain a competitive edge, it’s essential that our work is of the highest standard, that we’re innovating with our strategies and that our campaigns are driving results for our clients. It’s great to see agencies and brands from across the globe being recognised for delivering exceptional work, and it’s something we’re proud to be a part of.
With so many awards out there, it’s key to select the ones that matter, and the UK Search Awards are something we work towards each year. Last year we came home with two wins for Best Content Marketing Campaign for our work with Canine Cottages and Best use of Search – Real Estate for our work with Strata Homes. We’re delighted to be shortlisted for five awards this year including Best use of Search – Retail / Ecommerce (PPC), Best use of Search – B2B (SEO), Best SEO Campaign, Best Content Marketing and Best Large Integrated Agency. We’ve been shortlisted for our market leading Father’s Day performance for thortful, our paid media strategy for Barker & Stonehouse and our PR work with Singulart.
As an agency we’re only 3 years old and we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve built so far. We work with leading brands globally and produce campaigns that have received multiple nominations and wins at a host of awards across the UK, Europe, and the US. We are Bing and Meta certified partners and in 2022 we were awarded Google Premier Partner status putting us in the top 3% of agencies in the UK. When we were founded back in 2019, we had a simple mission of helping our clients dominate in their sectors and being in the running and winning so many awards each year is a testament to everything we’ve achieved so far. And while awards don’t show the full picture, they provide a good snapshot into the level of work we’re producing and the results we’re delivering.
Being shortlisted for Best Large Integrated Agency is something we’re particularly excited about. As an independent agency, we’re able to make changes quickly and over the past year we’ve implemented new processes, benefits, and ways of working to enhance the employee experience at c3. Our team can work abroad for up to six weeks of the year, we have fully hybrid working, private medical insurance and earlier this year we sent two team members to Puerto Rico and Thailand as part of our volunteering abroad programme. Going into year three we’ve selected three charities to support, and we’ll be fundraising for them over the next year – our newly launched charity and environmental committee will be coordinating all internal fundraising activities.
In addition to this, we’re passionate about giving back to the digital community through sharing thought leadership through different channels. Our blog has a wealth of information on digital marketing best practices and is read by thousands of marketers each month, we produce weekly C3TV vlogs where our team share all their best tips and tricks and we write quarterly in-depth whitepapers that take a deep dive into the SEO landscape of different industries. We also speak, attend, and run events in the UK, Europe, and America.
We’re looking forward to celebrating our award nominations with all the other finalists at the UK Search Awards and look forward to entering (and winning) more awards in 2023!
