Nottingham-based digital marketing agency Impression Digital has been named as a finalist for the Nottingham Post Business Awards New Business of the Year category, recognising a successful year for the fledgling company.

The agency is currently recruiting for three more full-time positions.

Speaking about the award, Impression’s MD Aaron Dicks said: “Digital marketing is an extremely valuable tool for any business, from startups looking to grow their brand through to large corporations seeking to engage new audiences or get more from their existing customers.

“We believe that our success as a new business in this industry has been driven by our ability to immerse ourselves in our clients’ businesses and crafting marketing strategies that deliver results. We thrive on creating intelligent, integrated campaigns and seamless customer journeys and we’re always on the look out for new technologies and techniques to help us do that better. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far and look forward to continued growth well into the future.”

Impression’s co-founder Tom Craig added: “It’s great to be nominated for such a well-respected local award against so many strong nominees from the region. As a company that’s proudly active in the Nottingham community, from developing the Nottingham Means Business website to providing training to support Nottingham business growth via the University of Nottingham’s Growth 100 initiative, we’re really looking forward to hearing the result.”

Impression was shortlisted for the award following its nomination in March, outlining the company’s strong financial growth and successes already achieved in its first three years of business. The winner will be announced at a black tie event at the East Midlands Conference Centre on May 14th.
