The Marketing Project of the Year category for the Digital DNA Awards, in association with Belfast City Council, recognises marketers that have enjoyed considerable success with their digital marketing strategy.
My marketing project was: get to the top of Google search results by writing regular, engaging blog content.
Wondering how that goal went for me?
In their 6th year, the Digital DNA Awards are a major highlight on the tech calendar and have been described as the most important and highly sought after awards for the Northern Ireland Tech Industry.
I’m in great company too on the shortlist, with the crème de la crème of Northern Ireland’s digital marketers, who are all doing incredible things.
Joining me on the shortlist are; Gekkoshot Digital, Bloc Blinds, Smarts, Christies Direct, BRS Golf by GolfNow, Genesis Belfast, and SketchUp Hub.
Held in partnership with MCS Group, the Digital DNA Awards celebrate the very best tech talent from companies of all sizes in the world of Digital and Tech.
Developers, engineers, and entrepreneurs alongside start-ups, FDI’s, and project teams will all be vying to pick up a prestigious Digital DNA trophy.
Simon Bailie, CEO of Digital DNA, emphasised the importance of the Digital DNA Awards and said he is excited about the return of a live audience.
“The Digital DNA Awards have become an important part of the NI Tech sector, so we are thrilled that we can bring this year’s event to such a significant venue as Ormeau Baths, which has played a central role in the growth of the tech sector here in recent years.
“It’s also fantastic that we can bring back an element of our live audience, which will help create that unique atmosphere of a Digital DNA event,” he adds.
Despite the challenging business environment over the past 12 months, the tech industry in Northern Ireland has continued to grow, with organisers confirming nominations for the 13 categories were as strong as ever.
Sean Devlin, Associate Director at MCS Group, explains, “Digital DNA continues to set the standards as the most sought after awards in the industry, and we are delighted to be part of it once again.
“After the year that it has been, the 2021 shortlisted nominations will have deserved the recognition as the competition has been stronger than ever.”
He adds, “Personally, I can’t wait to celebrate the best and brightest in the technology industry in Northern Ireland!”
The awards will take place at Belfast’s Ormeau Baths on Thursday, 1 July 2021.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, there will only be a small live audience at the event, so I won’t be able to get suited and booted for the glitzy ceremony.
Instead, I’ll be tuning in online to watch the show with everyone else.
