Why we are boroughs best upcoming business

As a digital marketing agency in Rochdale, we have offered a valid contribution to the town. Working in tandem with Hilary Pogson, we did quite a bit of work this year to help out not for profit organisations. Notably we created a website for the Rochdale Youth Voice, and we created a directory of services for Rochdale Homeless Action Information Network (BRHAIN)

The Award ceremony took place in the beautiful and gothic Rochdale Town Hall. It was a great evening with dinner, drinks, bubbly and entertainment.

This year so far

It’s been a great year for our little rochdale digital marketing agency, with trade missions to Dublin, Amsterdam, visits to the prime minister’s house. We became Google Partners, in addition to serving lots of happy clients and we are really chuffed that it’s all paid off!

We would also like to congratulate all of the other nominees and finalists in this year’s awards. It’s great that our commitment to our local area and our hard work was recognised.
