Last week I found out that along with 3 other businesses we have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Lincs Digital Awards, for the biggest award of them all, Digital Business of the Year 2016. I am thrilled with this recognition for my team and I, with the hard work we put in for our client’s day in day out.

To think it all started because I wanted to help my own eCommerce store to rank higher in the search results. At this point I couldn’t find a company that I wanted to work with and that seemed trustworthy, so I decided to start my own business and taught myself the skills. Look at us now, SEO Traffic Lab has a team of experts in SEO & Digital Marketing, over 40 years’ combined experience in eCommerce, our own in house Web Developers and so much more. I could not be prouder of the work my team produce and the fact we have been recognised for such a monumental award is an honour that our hard work is noted.

The judging process for Digital Business of the Year is based around digital services being our main source of income. The winner will be decided by a team of 10 judges consisting of the most influential CEO’s, CIO’s and MD’s of some of the best businesses Lincolnshire has to boast. The deciding factor is based upon a clear indication of success of the business as well as the consistency of success following throughout the year.

Many things at the moment are helping to continue building our success such as our continual partnership with Google, my own current participation in a course conducted by Robert Craven for the top 30 Growth Agencies in the UK, and Andy and Jodie taking part in Squared Online by Google. Not to forget my fantastic team giving their best every day. I just hope that we will be able to bring this award with us on our journey.

Lincolnshire based businesses produce innovative work consistently and often we rival some of the work that London based agencies create. So to simply be included in this gives me such an honour and I look forward to celebrating the Lincolnshire county as a whole. The awards ceremony is taking place on Thursday 28th of April at one of Lincolnshire’s finest venues, The Engine Shed, following the success of the event last year we are thrilled to be attending this year.

Lincolnshire Business Expo 2016Earlier in the year we were sponsors of and Jodie spoke at Lincolnshire Business Expo, which was ran by Lincolnshire Business magazine and considering it was only the first year, it was an incredible event. This only excites me and the team further for what is in store for the Lincolnshire Digital Awards 2016.

If you want to understand why we are a finalist for Digital Business of the Year, we are running our renowned event, #LabLive on May 19th. This will give you the opportunity to learn more about what is working now in digital, and how our skills, that have got us this recognition, are helping so many businesses make the most of the world that isdigital.

Make sure you are connected with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see our news unfold first hand. We are very much looking forward to putting our glad rags on for the evening so be prepared for plenty of pictures, hopefully we’ll see some of you fellow Lincolnshire Businesses there.
