On Thursday 24th April I attended the inaugural Essex Digital Awards at Billericay’s Ivory Rooms as a finalist in 2 categories and am thrilled to announce that I was awarded Gold for Online Business and Silver for Use of Social Media in Business!! I was honoured to have been chosen as a finalist in the awards to so come away with an award in both of the categories I was in is absolutely amazing! I still can't quite believe it! (Biiiig cheshire cat grin ;-D)
The awards, in association with Freelance SEO Essex and the Essex Chronicle, are the first and only digital awards scheme in Essex and were set up to reward businesses who embrace the opportunities digital technology presents to drive sales and promote interaction with customers. Their mission is to celebrate those businesses who have already taken significant strides forward, as well as Essex’s huge pool of design and development ability. Most importantly, they are showcasing what is possible for any business willing to take that step forward. You can find out more details on the awards, the judges and the latest news from the Essex Digital Awards team here.
So I now have 2 fabulous plaques that will take pride of place in my office/work/mess-area and am looking forward to seeing more pictures of the night from essex Digital team once they have them. For now, here are a couple of yours truly courtesy of the Essex Chronicle and you can have a browse of the full winners gallery here.
Massive congratulations to all the nights winners and finalists, there are so many fantastic Essex businesses out there and I am overjoyed that me and my small home-based business were recognized among them. Me and hubby had a great night at the awards ceremony which was hosted by Robin Bailey, with entertainment from Mike McClean. A huge thank you to the team at the Essex Digital Awards, the sponsers and of course the judges :-)
