ESSEX: Freelance SEO Essex Back EDA For Third Year

One of the county’s leading search engine optimisation firms, Freelance SEO Essex, has become Associate Sponsor of the Essex Digital Awards for the third year in a row.

The Great Baddow company – which helps small and medium businesses improve their Google rankings, manage social media and offers pay-per-click management – will present the Blog category awards at the EDA16 Presentation Evening in April.

Freelance SEO Essex will also receive a range of other publicity opportunities including coverage in the Essex Chronicle and branding at the event and on the EDA website.

Danielle Haley, a director at Freelance SEO Essex in Church Street, explained why they decided to get involved with the EDAs for once again.

“What we particularly love about the Essex Digital Awards is its readiness to celebrate and promote digital success across all facets of digital design, development and marketing. No matter how large or small the project, all kinds of talented professionals have opportunity to be recognised for their hard work.

“Each year the EDAs keeps getting bigger and better. An ever-increasing list of high profile companies are lining up to associate themselves with the initiative, so renewing FSE’s role as Associate Sponsor in the third year was a no-brainer for us. We always want to be the first to support local digital talent in Essex because the sheer amount of skill, determination and innovation in our county continues to be nothing short of inspiring, particularly as we’re all working and collaborating in such a fast-moving and demanding industry.

“We believe that our company remains a perfect partner for the EDAs because our values align with the organisers’ vision. Like the EDAs, we’re honest, transparent and progressive in our approach towards our core services, which include search engine optimisation, Pay Per Click marketing and web design. Our team handles the search campaigns of a huge range of companies, ranging from solo tradesmen to international corporations, and we’re always keen to meet online entrepreneurs from all walks of life, so being involved in the EDAs means that we’re placing ourselves in amongst some of the brightest minds in the digital space.”
