On the 3rd May we attended the much anticipated, Essex Digital Awards at Hylands House, Chelmsford. Since 2013, the awards have seen thousands of entries. They reward innovation and progressive thinking in the use of digital media for business. With 12 gold awards up for grabs Garda were shortlisted in two. Thankfully we didn’t have to wait long.
Much to our delight, Garda scooped Gold in the first category of the night – winning ‘Best Blog’ – which looks for organisations who are underpinning their core activities with frequently updated, well composed, content marketing posts. Cited as a ‘must read’ for small businesses and start-ups, the judges also praised our ‘call to action copy’ and ‘imaginative content’.
Speaking after the event, Garda MD Tony Burrows said:
“We are over the moon to receive this award at the Essex Digital Awards. It epitomises the Garda approach of adding value to small businesses. With our Blog we set out to support organisations, by offering accessible bite-sized marketing advice and tips.
This award has inspired us to carry on creating a variety of relatable content. We hope that it demystifies marketing and helps SMEs make those incremental changes that undoubtedly contribute to overall business success.”
