If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you may have already seen the exciting announcement. We have been shortlisted for not one, but two categories in 2015â€™s prestigious Search Awards.
— Creare (@creare) October 14, 2015
We’ve been nominated for two of the biggest categories in the awards which are:
- Best Large Agency
- Best SEO Software Suite
Although we attended the awards ceremony last year, this is the first time we’ve been shortlisted for the Best Large Agency category. Itâ€™s a huge achievement and makes us proud of all the work everyone at Creare has put into the last 12 months.
Getting this far hasn’t come easy. The process of submitting our entry was hard work but, as we always do at Creare, we gave it our best and people all across the business pulled together to achieve a great submission pack.
Here are some examples of what we needed to include:
Best Large Agency Category
- Details of roles, employee numbers and business objectives.
- Recent work undertaken including objectives & implementation
- Why we think we should win
Best SEO Software Suite
- Overview of innovation or product
- Why you think your product should win
- Link to online demonstration
However, this is what we also included:
- Our talented designers built a timeline of our Creare journey for the last 12 months to show the milestones weâ€™ve come across and how weâ€™ve grown â€“ see the timeline here.
- The focus on â€˜Our People Your Teamâ€™ has been prominent in the last 12 months and wanted to showcase this in our entry
- Full demonstration video for the software created in-house and available for everyone to use.
Creare Sponsorship – Supporting the Industry
Our involvement in the Search Awards hasnâ€™t just stopped at being nominated; to show our support for this event and the industry as a whole, weâ€™ve sponsored the â€˜Best SEO Campaignâ€™ category.
Pushing boundaries and exploring new approaches to campaigns is a key part of our ethos and what really drives our passion for the industry, so we really wanted to show our support by sponsoring the â€˜Best SEO Campaignâ€™ category. Weâ€™re really excited to see what all of these campaigns have to offer, and canâ€™t wait to celebrate the success with other companies in the SEO industry.
Sponsoring Creare’s Categories
Weâ€™re also excited to see the companies supporting other categories, including those Creare are nominated in. Innovative mobile marketing experts Appstractor are sponsoring the â€˜Best SEO Software Suiteâ€™ category, and SEO data specialists Linkdex are sponsoring the â€˜Best Large SEO Agencyâ€™ category.
Made up of leading experts from the industry, the panel of judges are from across many different organisations. Here are introductions to some of the friendly faces, and what they’re up to on Twitter;
James Carson: MD, Digital Factoid
Anders Hjorth: Development Director in BDBL Media
Heledd Jones: Head of Retention Marketing, Confused.com
Ross Matthews: CMO, Icelolly.com
This will be the fifth year the Search Awards have taken place and we are so excited to be shortlisted for two more awards.
The ceremony is being held on the 26th November in London and it is sure to be an amazing event, whether we come away with an award or not.
There has been so much hard work put in to the application from many people across the business including Designers & Developers, Content Writers, Executives and so many more.
We had an influx of volunteers who came forward to create focus groups and everyone contributed value throughout the process. This helped us pull everything together to create a fantastic entry which has come to fruition.
To wrap up, thank you to everyone on the judging panel who has recognised our hard work up to this point and to everyone at Creare who has helped pull such a fantastic entry together. Roll on 26th November!
