Google Search Excellence Winners 2015

Proud to Be Working with One of the Google Search Excellence Winners

Best Canadian Digital Marketing Agency

A feat not done in Canada before. We’re very, very, very proud.
While this may seem like a shameless plug, it’s really not – we are so proud of our team and our company. I don’t think I’ve ever worked in a place where the staff stay after 5pm on a Friday because they want to. We play pool, mingle and catch-up. Great place to work, right?

So, while we are tooting our own proverbial horn, I think we earned it. Imagine how many digital marketing agencies and marketers there are and then imagine a 28 member agency located in Burlington being chosen as one of twelve North American Google Search Excellence Award winners.

Mind Blowing!

DAD_Logo_1We are no fun at non-digital parties. No one understands what we do and we’re passionate about it, some might say “Geekishly boring”. I don’t think we are…even when we talk about algorithms and CTR. Most of our parents think we work in IT.

Don saw the opportunity to start a search marketing agency with the claim they are math men not Mad Men – a niche that still isn’t populated by many marketing agencies. Our difference – our numbers speak for themselves. We are all about the data and we’re small enough to care about all of the details.

  • From the Oakville Beaver,* Oakville co-founder of Burlington business receives Google award for second year in a row.*Since our search beginnings, client demand has made us become a full-service, small digital marketing agency with some (really) big (Fortune 500 big) and mid-sized clients. We are growing so rapidly that it appears right now we have two hires a week. Brilliant people. Engaged people. We’ve run out of room in the fridge for lunches now, but the coffee is always flowing and so are the creative juices.Unsolicited Guest PostCeri Nelmes, Senior Digital Strategist @
