We took home Silver at the Northern Digital Awards!
We kicked off 2023 in great fashion as our hardworking PPC efforts from last year were shown some appreciation. On the 26th of January, our office attended the Northern Digital Awards in Leeds City Centre, hosted at the Royal Armouries by the wonderful Jenny Powell!
This event was all about the glitz and glamour, as some of the top agencies from the North of England were shortlisted. Suited and booted was an understatement, as the suits, ties and tails were pulled out the wardrobe and dusted off.
Read on to find out more on the event, those who attended and which one of our campaigns reigned supreme!
Executed very well, the ceremony was action packed from start to finish. Upon arrival, we were welcomed to complimentary drinks. The initial meeting area was a hustle and bustle with lots of networking and catch-ups, featuring an interactive selfie station that we ofc made use of! Alongside the bar, a beautifully carved block of ice that doubled as a tequila dispenser was in full flow, serving ice cold, smooth shots to get the evening started.
We were escorted into the main area, where the decor and table dressing was beautifully lavish, with a fully stocked table and range of drinks provided, ready for the meal.
Three courses were served, perfectly presented and very artfully decorated if we do say so! During the meal we were also treated to a live acoustic performance which set the mood comfortably.
Hosted by nostalgic T.V personality, Jenny Powell, the award ceremony was a barrel of laughs from start to finish, and executed with perfect timing and finesse, very impressive considering there were 27 award categories.
Overall we all had a delightful night, which won’t be our last awards ceremony this year and beyond.

Our Silver Winning PPC Campaign
Our PPC campaign for My Hair and Beauty was one of our stand out projects from 2022. We have worked with the online beauty retailer for many years now, so it’s great to see how our relationship and campaign activity with them has blossomed over the years.
Our Pay Per Click team worked closely with the My Hair and Beauty sales experts to bring this campaign to life.
