Sheffield Digital Agency Nominated for Drum Search Award

Sheffield Digital Agency Nominated for Drum Search Award

09 May 2016

Sheffield based business, Ignition Search, has been nominated by a panel of digital experts for the prestigious Drum Search Awards.

The business, which opened in Sheffield 9 years ago, has grown from a team of 6 to a team of 20 in the last two years.  As well as working with clients in Sheffield, they also work across the whole of the UK and throughout Europe, Canada, Dubai and North America, providing a range of high quality internet marketing services in a wide range of industries.

Nominated specifically for the ‘Best B2B Campaign – PPC’ for their outstanding work with Sheffield based gift wholesaler Puckator, Ignition Search is in the final 3 and will find out at an awards ceremony on the 8th June 2016 if they have won.  

Ignition Search have been nominated for the award following their success with Sheffield based Puckator, a project which saw them not only recover Puckator's consecutive YOY online revenue losses but also generate an additional £425,000 in online revenue with an integrated landing page system and AdWords, all in just 18 months. This was on the back of 18 consecutive back to back months of revenue increases, 2015 vs 2014.

Ignition Search’s expertise in AdWords and innovative landing page system has allowed Puckator to greatly outperform its competition not only in the UK but Europe as well, with online revenue increases in France, Germany and Spain.

Situated in Kelham Island’s Neepsend Triangle Business Centre, Ignition Search are close to Sheffield’s city centre, in the up-and-coming Kelham Island location which has a great mix of residential, leisure and commercial developments as well as competitive rents, ample parking, easy transport links and good public transport. Formerly the industrial quarter of the city, Kelham Island is now a popular area to live and work, being named ‘Best Places to Live in the UK’ in the Sunday Times guide.

Panel chairman Simon Vaughan from Direct Line Group said of the standard of work: "This year's entrants to the Drum Search Awards were all of a high calibre which made the judging very tricky at times. It's really good to see such a wide variety of entries and some really creative and innovative uses of search. These awards are a brilliant platform for advertisers and agencies to shout about how they are going above and beyond to deliver effective search campaigns and it's great to see The Drum Awards supporting the industry.”

Stephen Reynolds, Head of Marketing at Ignition Search, commented: “The Puckator project has involved a lot of hard work and innovation and it is great to see it receiving recognition.  It is also a big achievement for the Ignition team to be nominated alongside the best in our industry.”

Alongside their work with clients, they have recently run seminars with Business Sheffield, supporting start-ups in the city to optimise their website and online communications which were free to all Sheffield businesses and were well attended.
