JAMJO Design are pleased to announce that our site Small Business Can has won a gold award for best website or micro-site at the prestigious CIPR Pride awards. Since we launched the site back in march it has steadily grown in popularity and emerged as one of the fastest growing online small business networks in Ireland and the UK today. A tear comes to our eyes when we see our babies grow up!

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Northern Ireland awards were held in the Europa Hotel, Belfast last week.

Some of the SBC team were on hand to pick up the award in front of an audience of more than 200 business people.

The panel of judges were very impressed by the site saying:

“This is a good example of marketing to a customer base through an online channel. Relationship building is nstrated in a clear and easy way using a light-touch with customers, who feel comfortable about owning the forums and discussing issues online. The success of the website can be seen in the number of visitors it attracts and the number of people registering each day. Clearly it appeals to its target audience. The amount of time spent by visitors on the site shows that the content is interesting, and the number of comments posted shows that visitors are engaging with the content.”

The CIPR is the representative body of the public relations industry in the UK. Judges of the awards included leading communications professionals from across the UK.
