Award-winning Derbyshire agency is celebrating again: Derby-based Gravity Digital named FSB’s Microbusiness of the Year (East Midlands)
Derbyshire-based digital marketing agency, Gravity Digital, is celebrating again today after being named the Federation of Small Businesses & Worldpay UK Microbusiness of the Year for the East Midlands. The five person strong firm will now wait to hear if they will scoop the National Award, when all the regional winners in the UK compete for the prestigious title, at a ceremony on May 10 2017.
This award comes hot on the heels of Gravity Digital’s national Rural Business Award where the company was named the best Rural Creative or Media Agency in the country last October.
Owned and run by three directors, Debbie Porter, Andy Smith and Sharon Steven-Cash, the company provides a complete suite of digital marketing services for over 100 clients including household names like Mr Fothergill’s and Heck, as well as SMEs.
The FSB’s Head of Partnerships and Events, Juliette Brown explained why Gravity Digital has received this accolade:
“Congratulations to Gravity Digital on achieving the FSB & Worldpay UK Microbusiness of the Year area award for East Midlands.
“We received a high number of entries this year, therefore to have been selected as an area winner for this category is a fantastic achievement. What stood out for the judges was the impressive turnover based upon the excellent retention of high profile clients.
“With growth targets already having been achieved, zero client attrition and a clear strategy that has already won them awards, Gravity Digital are worthy winners of this area award and we wish them every success for the future. FSB are excited to be celebrating the successes of Britain’s SME businesses and celebrating their successes on both a regional and national level.”
Gravity Digital Director Sharon Stevens-Cash said:
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as the East Midlands’ Microbusiness of the Year. We work hard to deliver the very best digital marketing programmes for our clients and for this to be recognised is pretty amazing. We are known for being down to earth and results-centred and this award is a testament to our hard working team and honest ethos.”
Gravity Digital, based at the Mill, in Lodge Lane, Derby and at Aldern House, Baslow Road, Bakewell, was launched in October 2015 following the merger of two long standing Derbyshire-based firms - Essential Marketing Solutions and Out of the Blue, a specialist web design company.
With more than 100 clients, a 100% client retention rate and with the three Directors dedicating at least 100 hours each year to voluntary causes, the digital marketing firm is well known in the East Midlands.
Now into its third year, Gravity Digital has continued to grow and is already expecting to exceed their turnover targets again this year. Sharon concludes:
“We believe that the reason we are successful is because we offer a practical, no nonsense approach to the digital marketing world that cuts out jargon and offers businesses a way to measure and monitor results. We’d like to thank all of our loyal customers for their ongoing support and we look forward to working with them, and other East Midlands’ firms, in the future.”
