Balls2 Marketing is nominated for three Pride Awards, the CIPR’s awards scheme that recognises excellence in public relations and communications work. The Derby-based PR and marketing agency is a finalist in Best Events for Triple Glazing Question (TGQ) hosted by Edgetech UK; the £20 eye test saved my life in the Healthcare Campaign category; and Outstanding Small Consultancy.
Over the last 12 months Balls2 Marketing has grown considerably. We now count some local businesses as clients, as well as continuing to expand within Andy Ball and Sarah Ball’s specialism glazing and construction.
As active participants Sarah and Gemma Bradley value the benefits of CIPR membership. Entering the awards is important to show the level of professionalism within the agency.
Sarah says: “Being finalists for the CIPR awards is very exciting. We are lucky to have worked on some brilliant projects this year. We entered the TGQ and the £20 eye test as examples of what our clients have achieved.
“Being finalists for The Outstanding Small Consultancy recognises the breadth of knowledge in the agency.
“Essentially we’re geeks about marketing,” adds Sarah. “We are always looking for ways to deliver great content in new ways. Social media has really grown this year and has played a big part in the success for 2014.”
The award ceremony for the Midlands Pride Awards is on 14 November. “It’s apt that winners will be announced at the Ricoh Arena as it was the venue chosen for the Best Event we’re nominated for with TGQ. It was a highly informative day attended by nearly 600 people from the glazing industry.
“We’re up against some formidable competition in all three categories so we are very happy to have made the finals.”
