Yep, our work with Traidcraft has once again, seen us shortlisted for a prestigious industry award.

A little bit about Traidcraft…

Traidcraft’s vision is a world free from the scandal of poverty, where trade is just, and people and communities can flourish. Acting as one of the biggest voices within the fair trade industry they are responsible for countless development projects, along with raising the profile of fair trade on a national and international level.

On the digital side of things to help Traidcraft achieve their vision, Silverbean has managed to transform the outlook of their organic search campaign from stale YoY performance, to impressive uplifts from all organic search defined metrics. We smashed targets that were set and surpassed them by a massive 39% over a 4 month project!

Joseph Marsh, Digital Marketing Manager, had nothing but kind words in his testimonial that supported our application:

“Silverbean are an impressive team, who go above and beyond to deliver on their objectives. Choosing Silverbean as our digital marketing agency has given us access to expert knowledge and education, while forming a fantastic partnership that I believe has had a direct influence on the amazing results we have achieved. Silverbean are stand out performers in the digital marketing sector and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Silverbean to anyone looking for a digital marketing agency.”

The campaign, led by Senior Search Consultant, James Mechan, has been a huge Silverbean success story in recent months, so naturally we’re all thrilled to be shortlisted and are hoping for a win on the 8th of June at The Drum Search Awards. Fingers crossed!

We’d also like to say a huge well done to our fellow nominees in the Best Charity/Not-for-profit Campaign – SEO category: Found. and Click Consult! Stiff competition.

As if that nomination wasn’t exciting enough, our very own Tom Etherington is shortlisted for The Rising Star award. Tom, a Search Marketing Consultant who leads on our biggest SEO client campaigns, including Rowlands Pharmacy, joined Silverbean back in March 2014, as a Search Marketing Executive. His digital prowess quickly shone through and within 6 months, he was promoted to Search Marketing Consultant, achieving some record-breaking results along the way.

This isn’t the first time Tom has seen himself on a shortlist as a result of his undeniable digital talent. Tom was named in the ‘Young Digital Marketer of the Year’ shortlist at the Northern Digital Awards in January, and back in December, Tom was Highly Commended for The Drum Agency Rising Star 2015. What a guy!

To be shortlisted for these awards just reconfirms our knowledge that we have some pretty impressive talent at Silverbean! We have our fingers firmly crossed for June 8th!

Good Luck to absolutely everyone who has been shortlisted! Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for live updates on the night…
