Diggerland win silver at Kent Digital Awards 2017!
On Thursday 1st June 2017, the Diggerland UK team attended the Kent Digital Awards 2017.
The Kent Digital Awards were established in 2014 as part of a series of similar schemes. The schemes recognize and reward innovation and progressive thinking by businesses.
Diggerland was shortlisted for the ‘Use of Social Media for Business’ award. We decided to attend with our friends over at E-Vision, who were also shortlisted for the same category.
Before the ceremony…
Diggerland staff arrive at the Ashford International Hotel and meet the EVision team. Of course EVision arrived in style in the brand new Tesla P100D! They even offered us an exclusive ride home if we won any awards!
The Diggerland UK Marketing Manager bumped into an old friend at Compare and Recycle.
After catching up and networking with many other talented businesses, everyone sat down for a lovely dinner and refreshments.
So after finishing our two-course meal and a glass of wine… or two, it was time to reveal the awards.
The Awards Ceremony
Diggerland won 2nd place silver award for ‘Use of Social Media for Business’.
E-vision closely followed, and were awarded with the 3rd place bronze award.
Our competition was great, and we are proud to have placed so highly among so many digital agencies.
Importance of Social Media at Diggerland UK
Diggerland loves communicating with its customers, and we believe that social media is the best platform to do so. Social media provides such a fast and efficient way to communicate. It enables us to understand customer needs, trends and concerns.
Connecting with customers on social media allows us to respond to any queries, competition entries and comments in real-time. Diggerland prides itself on excellent customer service. We aim to use social media to constantly better our service to customers.
Not only is social media fast and efficient, but it also allows Diggerland to be creative. We are able to promote various Diggerland special offers and events across a number of channels. It is the largest platform for us to generate free advertising and PR, and is a great way of encouraging word-of-mouth promotion.
“Social media is a vital form of any business, and more so for Diggerland because our customer demographic is parents who use social media platforms to discover brand new exciting days out for their children.”
Blake Hammond, Junior Digital Marketing Assistant at Diggerland UK.
