Recognition for SiteVisibility at National Business in the Community Awards

Leading digital marketing agency receives ‘Big Tick’ from BITC as Finalist for the Santander Responsible Small Business of the Year Award

SiteVisibility, one of the UK’s leading digital marketing agencies, has been awarded its ‘Big Tick’ for its CSR activities by Business in the Community (BITC). As a Finalist in the Santander Responsible Small Business of the Year Award, the Brighton-based agency joined FTSE100 companies at the BITC National Gala Dinner, July 2nd, Royal Albert Hall, hosted by Joanna Lumley and James Corden and which included an address by and the Prime Minister, David Cameron.

The decision to award SiteVisibility with a ‘Big Tick’ was made by a panel of independent, experienced business people, and the process has been assured by Arthur D Little. They noted that SiteVisibility’s Digital Marketing Fund displayed “fantastic innovation”.

The £25k Digital Marketing Fund was launched in September 2012 and was available to all charities and not-for-profit organisations across Sussex. Earlier this year SiteVisibility announced that the fund had been awarded to Brighton-based child care charity, Extratime. This on-going campaign has already provided the charity with the opportunity to improve its online reputation and profile, increase online donations and build its own digital capability to become more effective and self-sustaining into the future.

The award assessors of the awards also felt that SiteVisibility offered a clear example of the benefits that SMEs can have on their local community. Throughout 2012 the company raised a total of £1,645.57 for the NSPCC via various forms of fundraising activities; its University of Brighton training day was attended by over 200 people; and its Social Media for Charities training session was attended by 56 local charity members.

At the BITC South East Responsible Awards Dinner, SiteVisibility also received recognition in the ‘Employee Volunteering Company of the Year’ category.

Jason Woodford, SiteVisibility CEO comments: “I am humbled and proud of my team for both helping us achieve the ‘Big Tick’ at the regional BITC Awards and for securing our place as finalists at what was a very glamorous gala dinner at the Royal Albert Hall. PM David Cameron said at the event that he acknowledges the vital role that responsible businesses play in promoting social justice and sustainability. That hit home that we’ve done our bit to help create employment opportunities in the communities where we operate. And this is just the beginning – we are already looking at ways at how we can surpass these achievements and positively impact our local community in 2013 and beyond.”

The BITC Responsible Business Awards recognise and celebrate the best examples of businesses’ that transform their communities and in turn transform their businesses to create a more sustainable future. In being shortlisted for this year’s judging stage, SiteVisibility is recognised as leading the way in this agenda and this clearly demonstrates that it is firmly in the business of supporting others.
