Thursday night heralded more celebrations as the Further team scooped not one, but two gongs at the prestigious UK Search Awards 2011 held at the Emirates Stadium in London.
This time it was the company's work for local travel client, Richardsons Boating Holidays, which scooped both the 'Best Use of Search – Travel' and 'Best Use of Search – Leisure' awards, beating off fierce competition from the very biggest and best agencies in the UK search industry.
"Having been crowned the UK's 'Best eCommerce Marketing Agency for 2011' at the eCommerce Excellence Awards only two weeks ago, we simply couldn't have wished for a result like this in our wildest dreams" commented Further's Client Services Director, Louisa Mann.
"We are thrilled because Richardsons are a perfect example of a regional client that has put their trust in us over the past three years and their strategy is continuing to pay off. We are so pleased that Greg Munford and Clive Richardson from the company were able to join us at the event to share in the celebrations."
"Sometimes not having a household name client can work against you, but it was reassuring to hear that the judges felt the standards of work, results achieved and value for money we provided for the campaign are what has set us apart " she continued.
Out of the 14 agency categories awarded, only one other agency took two or more awards on the night.
The judging panel for the awards included Bas van den Beld, Founder of State of Search, Nick Garner, Head of Search at Unibet, Richard Gregory COO at Latitudes and UK Chair of SEMPO, Judith Lewis , Head of Search at Beyond, John Myers of Yahoo and Philip Miles of Google UK.
