Myself and the lovely Nasreen Cullen, Found Account Manager extraordinaire, pulled our glad rags on and scrubbed up for the Revolution Awards at Grosvenor House last night – and what a night it was. From the stunning art deco venue to the inspiring shortlisted entries, there was enough creative energy to power the hundreds of spotlights illuminating the enormous room.
Found were shortlisted in the category of Best Use of Affiliate Marketing for our ground breaking work with Premier Inn, who we worked closely with to build a site that supported their existing paid search strategy. A proven success story in driving high volumes of bookings, http://www.premierinnhotels.co.uk gives travellers easy access to route and location information on Premier Inn’s growing suite of hotels across the UK. The latest addition to the site includes a blog designed to keep visitors up to date with the latest Premier Inn news, such as the opening of 2 eco-friendly hotels.
While we were unfortunately pipped at the post by Arena Quantum’s excellent Facebook campaign for Domino’s, the evening was a great opportunity for us Founders to meet a host of interesting new people from across the industry – with a particular shout-out to our friendly table mates at Numiko who were shortlisted for their innovative website http://www.numiko.com
Nasreen was also particularly chuffed to have her picture taken with the hilarious host Jack Whitehall who kept us all in stitches throughout the ceremony and even stayed around to chat with all the guests afterwards – clearly he was enjoying mingling with the crème de la crème of the digital marketing industry!
Congratulations to all of the winners and we’ll be cracking on with plenty more innovative projects that hopefully will see us sitting in the Revolution Awards audience again next year!
