RAR Digital Awards 2014 nominees have been announced – out of the 300 most recognised digital agencies in the UK, we’re very proud to have been shortlisted as a top 10 agency in 6 categories!
For the ‘Under 40 Staff’ awards we are nominated for:-
- Web Design
- Digital Strategy
And for the ‘Combined’ awards—where we’re competing against agencies of all sizes (including those with 40+ staff, many of whom turn over in excess of £10 million)—we are finalists in the following categories:-
- Content Strategy
Winning awards has never been a major objective for us to be fair. In fact we generally tend to steer clear of them and this is the first time we’ve ever tried to win anything this prestigious. We’d rather focus on meeting our clients’ objectives than pleasing a panel of judges with self-serving work. Going for awards has always seemed to present a conflict of interest.
However, the RAR Digital Awards are very different from other schemes because the judges are our clients.
Introducing RAR Digital Awards 2014 – a different approach…
RAR—which stands for Recommended Agency Register—is the largest of it’s kind in the UK. Agencies like us create profiles on the RAR website, show off case studies and collect feedback from clients. That feedback is then amalgamated and run through an algorithm… if they score high enough in certain service areas, an agency can become a nominee for related categories. A panel of judges then chooses a winner from the 10 agencies shortlisted in each category each year.
2014 marks the first ever RAR Awards specifically for digital agencies: simply called the RAR Digital Awards 2014. We’re particularly pleased to have made a big impact in the inaugural year of such a highly specialist digital awards scheme where we’re competing against the 300 most recognised digital agencies in the industry; many much larger than ourselves.
Hopefully we’ll pick up a few wins on the night and leave an indelible mark. However, it means the world to us to just be nominated in so many categories… it means our customers have rated us among the top 10 digital agencies in the UK for each of our core services.
‘Recommended Digital Agency’ for…
We are also accredited as a ‘recommended digital agency’ in all of the following service areas due to the fact that our client ratings have consistently been so high:
- Web Design
- Web Development
- Digital Strategy
- Content Strategy/Creation
- Responsive Design
- Ecommerce Platform Development
And we got the following scores in client satisfaction surveys too:
- Client Service – 97%
- Creativity – 96%
- Effectiveness – 98%
- Strategic Thinking – 96%
- Value for Money – 96%
- On Time – 95%
- On Budget – 98%
Those lists cover everything we do here, so we could hardly be more pleased. Apparently our clients feel the same!
RAR Digital Awards 2014 Ceremony
So, a big thank you goes out to all of our clients who made this possible. Without your trust we couldn’t have done the work; and without you going out of your way to give us such great feedback we wouldn’t be in the running for these awards.
The RAR Digital Awards 2014 ceremony will be hosted at The Montcalm Hotel, London on June 10th. We’ll keep you posted – follow us on Twitter for live updates.
