Here at Visualsoft, we feel that awards are one of the best ways to showcase our calibre of work. Each month, we enter prestigious marketing and eCommerce awards in order to highlight our business successes, and we offer all of our staff the chance to shout about anything from their high-quality client campaigns and innovative strategies, to colleagues and in-house teams that they feel deserve recognition for outstanding performance.

We most recently submitted entries for the CIM Marketing Excellence Awards 2019 and the UK eCommerce Awards 2019 and we’re delighted to share the news that Visualsoft has been shortlisted for 5 awards!

CIM Marketing Excellence Awards 2019

UK eCommerce Awards 2019

We’ve also been shortlisted for 4 awards at this year’s UK eCommerce Awards.

UK eCommerce Rising Star Award:

Our Publisher Performance Manager, Callum Ridley, has been announced as a finalist in the “UK eCommerce Rising Star Award” category.

“Since Callum joined Visualsoft, his impact has been huge and cannot be understated. He has an amazing attitude towards his client work and publisher relationships, and his determination is contagious. His reputation in the industry has allowed him to broker partnerships with some of the largest publishers, securing their efforts for our clients well into the future. To this extent, he has also been a huge influence on our brand and how we operate!” - Luke Atherton, Network Director.

UK eCommerce In-House Team of the Year:

In addition, both our Email and our Design teams at Visualsoft have been shortlisted for “UK eCommerce In-House Team of the Year”.

In their entry, our Design team showcased their department growth and award-winning work for clients such as Moda In Pelle and Miltons Diamonds. They also highlighted that despite a significant YoY increase in Visualsoft clients, which led to a surge in design requests particularly on the run up to Black Friday 2018, the team successfully produced designs for a record number of 1,327 client requests in just 30 days!

“The Design team are a close-knit group of friends that work together to produce amazing work, consistently” Gavin Lowther – Head of Digital.

Our Email team focused on the industry-wide changes brought about by GDPR legislation in their entry. Our experts demonstrated how they took the lead to make sure that our staff and our clients were fully educated on the new legislation. One of the team’s most successful GDPR campaigns, for online vaping retailer, LiQuid, was also incorporated into the entry along with the following testimonial:

“I cannot speak highly enough of the Visualsoft Email team and I view them as an extension of my own marketing department - they are invaluable to my business’s continued growth." - Ian Botterill, LiQuid’s Head of Digital.
