WHAT a year 2017 has been for SilverDisc, the full service digital Google Premier Partner agency based in Kettering.
The year started with the launch, in January, of the new Business Times website and digital partnership, which received excellent plaudits, has gone from strength to strength through the year. January also saw SilverDisc being awarded Bing Partner Agency status.
In March we celebrated our 24th Birthday, incredibly old for a digital marketing agency, and began our 25th year and planning for our Silver Anniversary which, given our name, we're taking very seriously!
In May we announced our sponsorship of the Business of the Year Greater than 50 Employees category in the SME Northamptonshire Business Awards and also encouraged one of our local clients, Gardenlines, to enter the Best E-Business award.
During the year we've attended several Google and Bing seminars in the UK and Ireland, including at the Gherkin in London and the Google HQ in Dublin. The highlight was the Google Premier Partner Agency conference in New York in September, where we flew the flag for Northamptonshire alongside agencies from around the world, learning about the next developments in mobile and artificial intelligence and their impact on marketing our clients' businesses.
In October, we were delighted to present the prize in our category at the SME Awards to Bell of Northampton. Our client Gardenlines, for whom we built the website and the back-office integration and handle all online marketing, won Best E-Business. Also, The Business Club Northants, of which we are Executive Members, won the Networking Group of the Year for the second year running.
November saw SilverDisc hosting a Google livestream Connect event for retailers at our Kettering offices, helping them to plan their digital marketing for 2018.
2017 has seen SilverDisc winning awards and presenting awards, and our clients winning awards - altogether a winning year!
As we draw towards the end of 2017, we're looking forward to more great things in 2018. We're investing heavily in our growth and as such we have been selected as a Google Growth Agency.
We'd love to work with more businesses in Northamptonshire. If you'd like to win more leads, sales and recognition for your business, with better digital marketing from a Google Premier Partner agency that's been established almost 25 years and with a great track record, please get in touch.
