Last Thursday we headed to Barcelona for the European Search Awards. We were delighted to have been nominated for six of the awards & were looking forward to celebrating the best of search across Europe & beyond.
On the night we were over the moon to take home the awards for:
🎇 Best Small Integrated Agency 🎇 Best PPC Campaign – For Our Work With Hayes Garden World
It was great to receive such positive feedback from the judges after a great year of growth & also successful client campaigns. In particular, having worked with Hayes Garden World for over five years we were delighted to see the joint success with our client off the back of a hugely successful 2021.
And of course, we were unable to evade a trip up onto the stage… so here is a lovely photo of us collecting our award on the evening!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Barcelona & look forward to heading off to a new destination next year for the European Search Awards 2023!
What better way to start our new financial year than by celebrating in style with SIX nominations at the European Search Awards!
After a solid 2021 we are delighted to see that our growth & great results for our clients have been acknowledged among some very fierce competition. We’re also looking forward to a fun trip to sunny Barcelona to celebrate at the awards in late May.
The categories we have been nominated in are:
🎇Best Use Of Search – Retail/Ecommerce (SEO) 🎇Best SEO Campaign 🎇Best PPC Campaign 🎇Best Small PPC Agency 🎇Best Small SEO Agency 🎇Best Small Integrated Search Agency.
We’re really looking forward to the night & hopefully bringing home an award (or two). (We’re also looking forward to the Sangria…)
Last night the entire Cedarwood team took a trip over to Leeds to celebrate our 6th Anniversary at the Northern Digital Awards where we were lucky enough to be up for FOUR nominations!
On the night we were nominated for:
🎇 Best Use Of Ecommerce – Retail (SEO) 🎇 Best SEO Campaign 🎇 Search Agency Of The Year 🎇 Best Small Digital Agency
It was great to get the team together to celebrate the best talent & work that the north has to offer & it’s always lovely to have a team night out – especially one that fell on the same date as our 6th anniversary.
We were absolutely delighted to walk away with the Silver Award for Best Small Digital Agency on the night, especially as we were up against some really strong competition & this has been a great reflection & reward for the team after our best year to date.
Our Director, Amanda Walls, set up Cedarwood Digital after working in digital marketing for several years. Amanda has created training courses for Google and knows more about SEO than most people know about themselves. Having travelled all over the world, she tied her flag to Manchester’s mast and decided to start her own digital marketing company.
A different SEO agency
It’s the norm nowadays to have account managers who are assigned to individual clients. It ties things up neatly and assures one point of contact. But what if the norm isn’t necessarily the best way? One of things we all love about working at Cedarwood is how hands on it is. Every team member works with every client and gets to know them as a person, not an account number. We’re basically an extension of your in-house team. So, if your PR needs a push, you speak to our PR hero, and if you’re interested in Google Ads, our PPC whizz is at the end of the phone (or video chat if we’re being topical).
Being in Manchester doesn’t matter when it comes to our clients. They are based all over the UK and we build personal relationships with them wherever they are. Aside from working in an office with a free barista service, it’s one of our favourite things about working at Cedarwood.
Where We Work
Our offices are part of a shared workspace where table tennis at lunch is the norm and morning pilates is offered as standard. The culture of working amongst other young, flourishing businesses keeps us motivated, and people bringing in their dogs is also an unexpected perk. Amanda chose We Work in Manchester because it’s the right mix of work and play, and gives us the space we need to be creative and to focus on growing.
Manchester is also host to several digital marketing award’s ceremonies. We’re proud to have been finalists in a few of them, including The Northern Marketing Awards. Obviously there’s friendly rivalry and we find a bit of competition is a great motivator, but it’s also great to be able to celebrate the achievements of digital marketing and SEO companies in Manchester. It’s an energetic city full of exciting businesses and a crazy amount of choices for after-work drinks. Our team comes from the North, the South and even Australia but we all agree that being an SEO company in Manchester is one of the best places we could be right now.
The growth of e-commerce and the turn towards a much more digital world makes working in SEO and digital marketing exciting and challenging. We never want to rest on our laurels and being in the cut and thrust of a thriving city, in an industry that continues to grow, is more than worth the early morning tram ride and the occasional rainy day.
Great news again this week – Cedarwood Digital is up for two awards at the UK Search Awards – ‘Best PPC Agency of the Year’ and ‘Best Small SEO Agency’.
The awards shortlist recognises our teams’ hard work across our PPC management and SEO campaigns that have achieved fantastic results for our clients. We may be a small team of five, but the results really speak for themselves.

Great news – Cedarwood Digital has been shortlisted for The Northern E-commerce Awards – Small Agency of The Year 2019. The winner will be announced at an award ceremony at the Hilton hotel on the 23rd October.
We have been recognised for our work with our biggest eCommerce clients including Hayes Garden World, a leading UK luxury garden retailer, Watches2U, the UK’s largest independent watch retailer and Casa Bella Furniture, the UK experts in handmade Indian wood furniture.
Our digital marketing ecommerce strategies have involved a careful blend of targeted PPC and SEO campaigns.
As 2018 draws to a close, we at Cedarwood are reflecting on what has been our most successful year to date. For both ourselves as a company, and for our clients, we have achieved exceptional business growth and development, and generally have a lot to shout about!
New client wins & successes
This year we have taken on a range of new and exciting clients, including the international brand design consultancy Elmwood and Ovo, the UK’s leading positive energy supplier. Our PPC campaigns have seen great success, increasing transactions for Casa Bella Furniture by 51.66% and revenue by 41.41% in the year period. Aided by the introduction of the new display campaign, we also accomplished increasing paid traffic for Patient Claim Line by 465.89%.
Always striving to stay current with marketing techniques, we were quick to utilize Google’s new creation of “Smart Shopping” which was introduced in the second half of the year. This has already seen great success, bringing in impressive revenue at 800% Return On Ad Spend for Hayes since its introduction in July. Our Smart Shopping campaign for Casa Bella also brought a fruitful 900% ROAS.
This year Cedarwood have continued to build strong media relationships, which we hope to maintain and evolve further in 2019. Through tactical content and outreach techniques we have secured numerous features for Hayes Garden World in high profile publications, including The Telegraph, The Independent, and The Daily Mail. Our link strategy has proven effective, and we have secured prime time TV coverage for key products, increasing brand visibility and relevance.
The Cedarwood team
In November, we were delighted to attend the Northern Ecommerce Awards. It was an honour to be involved and to have our progress recognised, as we were shortlisted for the Small Agency of The Year award for 2018. We were also thrilled to expand the Cedarwood family, and welcome three new members of the team – Anna, Ed and Alex. Each of them have brought their own unique skills and expertise, making our marketing abilities even stronger and more diverse. A bigger and better team calls for a bigger and better office space, so 2018 also involved upgrading the Cedarwood HQ and relocating to a shiny new office space.
Finally, our managing director Amanda has done some impressive work with Google Digital Garage this year. Providing training courses to marketers across the North West, she is sharing her invaluable expertise across the region, and doing Cedarwood Digital proud.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the whole team and to our wonderful clients who have made 2018 a sparkling and successful year for Cedarwood. Here’s to an even brighter 2019!
We are excited to announce that Cedarwood Digital has been shortlisted for The Northern E-commerce Awards – Small Agency of The Year 2018. The winner will be announced at an award ceremony at the Hilton hotel on the 6th November.
Speaking about the awards, Director Amanda Walls said:
“We are delighted to have been shortlisted in such a strong group of agencies for the Northern E-commerce Awards. The team has been working incredibly hard on our e-commerce campaigns and it is great to see their work gain the recognition it deserves.”
We have been recognised for our work with Hayes Garden World which is one of the UK’s leading independent garden retailers. The team have worked hard to grow Hayes’ online presence through SEO optimisation, paid search and online media. And we’ve secured incredible results; Hayes has seen 200,000 additional organic visitors and a revenue growth of 110%. Check out our full Hayes Garden World case study for more details.
We look forward to hearing the winners announcement.
