A LANCASHIRE marketing company has started the new year with two awards and has been recognised as one of the UK’s top 100 independent agencies.

Soap Media, which works across the county and has offices in Preston and Manchester, received the two Clutch Awards, which recognise companies from around the world, thanks to extensive customer feedback on the company’s trustworthiness.

Meanwhile, Drum’s Top 100 Independent Agencies is determined by a detailed analysis of two years of financial performance, an analysis that placed Soap Media in the top bracket for turnover, turnover growth, turnover percentage growth, turnover per head, gross profit and gross profit growth.

Soap Media CEO Markerle Davis said: “We’re delighted to be starting 2021 on a real high with recognition from two of the industry’s most trusted and respected award platforms.

“It’s the fourth consecutive year we’ve been honoured by Clutch, with these two awards proving that we are in the global elite.

“The Drum Top 100 nomination is also a significant achievement for us.

“Whilst we’ve won a lot of awards over the years, this is pretty much the gold standard for our industry.

“You only have to look at the other agencies who have been included in the past to realise how well we’ve done.

“These are hugely successful companies with well-earned reputations for top class results, so for us to be considered on this level is a tremendous accolade.

“I’m proud of the team we’ve built over the past fifteen years, and it’s hugely inspiring to see their efforts rewarded in this way.”

Soap Media works to help other companies improve their digital presence and, along with the North West has staff based in Romania and Greece.

The company sees these accolades as a vindication of its status within the industry compared to larger, London-based firms.

Mr Davis said: “We don’t look at the people we work with as merely clients or monthly revenue statistics; they are partners with visions we need to believe in.

“Every pound and every second is more valuable than ever, so our focus in going above and beyond expectations is why we secure these awards and continue to attract such brilliant businesses to work with.”
