The last quarter of 2020 has arrived with fantastic news for the Digital Trails team. After recent client wins and embarking on a creative campaign shortly after, we are delighted to have made the shortlist for the UK Search Awards, in the ‘Best use of PR in a search campaign’ category.
The UK Search Awards are one of the leading accolades in the digital marketing industry, acknowledging the best talent and achievements in SEO, PPC and content marketing activities across the UK.
The ‘Best use of PR in a search campaign’ category celebrates the innovative mix of PR and SEO to drive results in search, through powerful media coverage and link building activity. We are extremely excited to be selected as a finalist for our “Lockdown Dad” Father’s Day 2020 campaign for leading gifts and gadgets retailer Menkind.

I am grateful for our clients’ continued support, and for trusting us to deliver throughout the past few months, a crucial time for every retail and e-commerce business.
‘I’m extremely proud of our team, for constantly proving their talent, going the extra mile and driving results for our clients in the most agile way. It’s incredible to see what you can achieve when you use PR in a targeted and integrated way, aimed at driving clear, measurable results.
