When I started Polemic Digital in 2014, my goal was to deliver world-class SEO services to business across the UK and Ireland from my base in Belfast.
Previously I’d achieved considerable success with my team at The Tomorrow Lab, winning numerous DANI Awards and getting on to the shortlist of the UK and European Search Awards on several occasions.
In due time I hoped to achieve similar recognition with Polemic Digital. Being shortlisted for a UK-wide search marketing award would be one of my entrepreneurial milestones, a measure of how far my business had come. Though I accepted that this would take a while, due to the slow-moving nature of SEO projects; good SEO takes time, so any potential accolade would have to wait for my projects with Polemic Digital to achieve success.
I’m very happy to say that we’ve now reached that first award milestone: Polemic Digital is shortlisted for three UK Search Awards!
We’re shortlisted for the following three awards:
Best Local Campaign
Best Low Budget Campaign
Best Small SEO Agency
I’m very happy to see our hard work for Super Saver Oil has been shortlisted in two categories, and I’m especially proud that Polemic Digital has been shortlisted for the Best Small SEO Agency award.
When you consider the businesses we’re going up against in these awards, it’s incredibly uplifting to see our small Northern Irish outfit ranked among some of the best agencies in the UK. It’s one thing to believe you should be counted among the country’s best – it’s another to know that others agree with you.
Many thanks to all the people who’ve supported Polemic Digital in various ways. Achieving success is never a one-person effort, you need the support of so many people around you to make it happen. To all of those people who have lent a hand in one way or another: thank you so much.
It’s also great to see fellow Belfast-based agency Loud Mouth Media shortlisted for Best Small PPC Agency; Mark Haslam is a great friend of Polemic Digital and his agency deserves to be recognised as one of the UK’s finest digital advertising companies.
The awards event on 30 November in London promises to be a wonderful celebration of the UK’s vibrant search marketing industry. I’m proud that Polemic Digital is part of this industry, and we’ll make sure to enjoy the celebrations regardless.
