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.”

ESSEX: Venue Announced for Essex Digital Awards 2015

The Essex Digital Awards has signed up Colchester United Football Club’s stadium to host its winners’ evening in April 2015.

Following the runaway success of the inaugural EDAs this year, the event will be held at the Weston Homes Community Stadium (WCHS), which boasts a vastly increased capacity and state-of-the-art banqueting suite.

The site – which is located just two minutes from the A12 – is the home ground of Sky Bet League One football side Colchester United.

In June WHCS hit the headlines after staging a concert for one of the biggest names in pop, Sir Elton John, and it regularly plays host to a range of corporate events, entertainment nights and the Heart Essex Awards.

Tim Waddington, the General Manager at WHCS revealed he was “delighted” to be working with the EDAs.

“We are delighted to be hosting the Essex Digital Awards at the Weston Homes Community Stadium,” he said. “Since opening in 2008, we have held a wide range of awards ceremonies at our home venue and we are looking forward to welcoming the best in digital in April 2015.

“The Essex Digital Awards promises to be an exciting event and we await with interest to see who this year’s finalists will be.”

The EDAs is the first and only scheme to recognize the digital excellence of businesses, charities and schools from across the county.

It is free-to-enter and boasts an impressive ensemble of judges from the digital industry and some of the UK’s largest organisations including the BBC, Sky Sports and Universal Music.

EDA award categories for 2015 include ‘Website’, ‘Use of Social Media for Business’ and ‘Use of Video for Business’.

In May, organisers of the EDAs announced a three-year ‘media partnership’ deal with the Essex Chronicle.
