We are proud to announce that Selesti has been chosen as a finalist for three different categories at this year’s Digital Entrepreneur Awards. The awards showcase the best in UK digital entrepreneurship, and they are the only national body to do so, therefore being chosen for such an award is fantastic news for all of us here at Selesti!
But for which of our many great web development projects have we been chosen? It was certainly difficult to decide which sites to enter for the awards, but after thinking long and hard we chose those we felt really represented the best of our agency across a number of different areas.
For Ecommerce Business Of The Year we have been chosen for the great work we did to get Bare Naked Foods working in time for owner Ross’ appearance on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den. The judges wanted to see examples of pioneering businesses that were doing things differently, whether this was purely online or not. Thanks to equal amounts of creative thinking and hard graft, we‘ve helped our client see a fantastic return on investment from his website.
Our work on 7BillionIdeas has also been selected as some of the Best Use Of Mobile this year, which follows on from the commendation our work received for this social media platform last year at the DADIs 2012. We have delivered in 2013 a new Android version, updates to the existing iPhone app along with rolling out new features seamlessly across their tablet-friendly site and mobile version.
Our traditional bread and butter service - web design and development is also recognised in the category of Web Development Project of the Year. This is for our work on the website and digital marketing campaign for Support Adoption For Pets - Pets At Home’s animal rescue charity. As well as raising over £2 million so far, the charity works hard to ensure abandoned animals across the UK get a second chance at happiness. Their website co-ordinates hundreds of rescue centres, providing them with the tools to advertise pets available to rehome, apply for grants and other funding. Our retainer relationship covers Search Engine Marketing and Social Media too, making for a truly cohesive strategy online - which we can show through analytics and experience brings clients the best possible results.
We have proven that we are an integrated digital agency who can deliver websites and mobile apps that not only look great, but also have a suite of user friendly and business critical features, effectively delivering return on investment for our clients time and again. Now we wait and cross our fingers, toes, and whatever else until October 10th when the winners will be announced at a ceremony in Manchester.
