Microsoft awards ƹϵεapp’s LOCALiQ ‘Global Rising Star of the Year’

ƹϵεapp’s digital marketing agency was honoured among a global field of Microsoft partners at the Microsoft Partner Awards as the Global Rising Star of the Year.

The Microsoft Partner Awards recognise digital marketing partners who demonstrate excellence in innovation and implementation of marketing campaigns by using Microsoft technology to help businesses stand out in their sector.

“Microsoft Advertising is honoured to present LOCALiQ with the Global Rising Star of the Year Award. We were thrilled by the quality of nominations from partners; inspiring us with their commitment to partnership, dedication to their clients and are proud to celebrate our global winners for their extraordinary work,” said Katherine Eills, Global Partner Marketing Director and Awards Lead, Microsoft Advertising.

Through training, content creation, and technology adoption, LOCALiQ substantially increased awareness, feature adoption, and revenues for its clients using the Microsoft Advertising Network. LOCALiQ UK Managing Director Nick Ashwood said: “We are incredibly honoured to receive this prestigious global award from Microsoft, building upon our European Rising Star award received earlier this year. The award reflects our commitment to empowering SMEs to harness the full potential of Microsoft Advertising.

“Our research has consistently highlighted the need for comprehensive education and support surrounding Microsoft and Bing Advertising among businesses across different sectors. These platforms are an increasingly important component of the dynamically evolving search marketing landscape, and their effective utilisation is paramount to the success of our clients.”
