SearchStar Nominated for 14 Drum Recommends Awards

23rd October 2019

The Drum Recommends Digital Awards are a big deal for us at SearchStar. There’s a rumour going round that the nominations were released a week early because Jon Boon, SearchStar’s Lead Analytics Consultant, was emailing The Drum twice daily to find out when they would land.

And there’s a good reason for our enthusiasm; these awards are based entirely on client ratings. They are a one of a kind in the industry – there are no entries to submit, no papers to write. Winning can only be achieved through the high regard of clients (the result of hard work of the highest quality), demonstrated with ratings on The Drum Recommends website.

SearchStar Nominated for 14 The Drum Recommends Digital Awards

As it happens, SearchStar has been nominated in a whopping 14 categories this time around. That’s a full 6 more than last year and testament to just how delighted our clients are with the hard work our teams put in year round.

“14 nominations?! This is absolutely fantastic news and yet more evidence of the incredible work the team here at SearchStar do for our clients. To keep increasing the number of nominations every year is quite exceptional, especially when we’re up against tough competition from other top Agencies.

“Hopefully we can hold onto our Analytics award (and win it for a 3rd year in a row) and grab the award in lots of the other categories too. Thanks to all our clients for recognising us with excellent ratings and to the SearchStar team for making sure our work is always awesomely industry leading.”

– Ryan Webb, Conversion & Analytics Director
