Hope the sun is shining where you are that you’re having a good summer full of the feel good factor (and, if you’re Irish in the current sun, probably some Factor 50 sun cream to boot!)! This is just a quick post to double down on the feel good factor and to give some props to two clients, Digitally Strong & Irlanda En Espanol, who work together and have recently landed a pretty significant award.
Award Winning Clients
Digitally Strong, a travel and tourism agency founded by Jenny Armstrong, is a site we designed and developed last year. Our designer Elena did the full logo design and branding for the business and Jenny & Co have gone on to win Best Travel & Tourism category at the 2018 Irish Social Media Awards (Sockies), for their campaign with tour company Irlanda en Espanol. Does that name ring a bell? Well, if you’re an avid reader of this blog it will as we that is one of the recently completed WordPress projects and so it’s great to see them getting this award so soon after launch.
About The Sockies
This year over 360 nominations were submitted by Irish companies across 35 categories. Digitally Strong and Irlanda en Espanol were selected as the winners in a competitive category whose nominees also included Adare Manor and the Maxol group. Their work was also shortlisted in two other categories – Best Business Twitter Account (Agency Run) and Best Use of Instagram (Business / Organisation). The prize was presented by RTE presenter Rick O’Shea to Jenny Armstrong, Founder of Digitally Strong, and Margarita Gruber, Managing Director of Irlanda en Espanol, at the awards ceremony in the RDS Dublin on June 14th.
Award Winning Websites?
Behind every award winner is a website and for these award winners it’s no different. The site for Digitally Strong got launched a little of a year ago and Jenny had this to say about it:
“Our website has been a fantastic shop window to showcase our services, past work and news such as our recent award win. The website’s “contact us” forms and SEO optimized content has enabled us to attract website visitors and convert them into leads.”
– you can’t beat that SEO optimisation for lead generation and whatever else may come from the leads (like awards!!).
Congrats To The Winners
So, as mentioned this is just quick mail to say congrats to the winners. Oftentimes things can get quite busy here in RR HQ with WordPress development or SMM for clients but do think it is important to find time to take stock, and give props, when people are blazing an award winning trail and so congrats to Jennifer & Irlanda En Espanol – onward and upward!
