Kubix Digital Conquers The MENA Search Awards
Wow, what an Award night to remember! The very first MENA Search Awards ceremony has taken place in the heart of the MENA region - Dubai. We, as Kubix Digital, couldn’t miss the opportunity to be part of it and after having already won the Best Small Integrated Agency Award at the European Search Awards plus being shortlisted in 5 categories for the MENA region, we had the confidence that we would bring home the gold!
AND....We sure did! We won in 2 categories: Best PPC Campaign & Best Small Integrated Agency.
Kubix Digital was shortlisted in the Mena Search Awards in the categories below:
- Best Use of Search – Retail
- Best Low Budget Campaign
- Best Integrated Campaign
- Best PPC Campaign - Won
- Best Small Integrated Agency - Won
Oh boy, we were up against some tough competition. But we are so proud to win 2 out of the 3 most prestigious and competitive categories, including the "Best Use of Search – Retail" category (in which we were shortlisted too). We believe that these 3 categories were the crème de la crème of the awards.
"Best PPC Campaign" Award
The award ceremony was wonderful. It was held at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, where we were welcomed into the Dubai lifestyle with this beautiful venue including live music and great food. Our host Jon Myers did a great job presenting and every time our name was mentioned in a category we cheered and clapped. Even Jon noticed that and referred to our energy thoughout his announcements. But after not winning an award for the first three categories we started laughing at ourselves for being so confident. We thought “Hey, if we don’t win at least let’s entertain ourselves!” After all being shortlisted is truly an honor in its own.
By the time it came to announce the Best PPC Campaign winner we were already on a natural high, joking and cheering and thinking ‘come what may’. And then our moment came...we were announced by Don’t Panic’s Nicky Wake as the winner!!! We weren’t prepared at all, but at the same time were expecting it to happen. Our five-person team in Dubai, as we call it Nano-Kubix, head to the stage. Şafak Ebcinoğlu, one of the 3 co-founders of the company made a speech:
“After winning our award in the European Search Awards two weeks ago, It's time for MENA here. It’s really nice to be here. Thank you very much to the judges and to the whole organization, absolutely mind-blowing! Thank you.”
"Best Small Integrated Agency" Award
Yay! How thrilling. Next up was the "Best Small Integrated Agency" Award category, but this time we were a bit more prepared for it. After winning the same award at the European Search Awards and truly believing that we do great things for our customers, I knew we would win it. We were announced the winner and our Nano-Kubix team head up to the stage again. This time Aylin Ertuğrul (that’s me o.m.g.) made the speech;
“Wow! First I’d like to thank Halide, Pınar and Şafak ex-googlers and co-founders of the company. It’s such a great company and I am so happy to be part of it. They really give value to the employee and it's thanks to them that we are so happy to come to work every day. They really deserve this award.”
In the past year, we have focused on being innovative and integrating new Google tools an product releases in our campaigns. We work very close with our customers and treat them like they are family. We are transparent, inform them about every step we take on their campaigns and look out for their benefits. This is the secret behind our long-lasting relationships with our customers. As a team, we are close-knit, work hard, have fun together and celebrate our successes. At Kubix Digital you are valued and doors open for you to blossom. The co-owners have created a work environment that welcomes you and makes you feel at home.
We expressed these in our award application and believe that is part of the reasons we won.
So, this is what the MENA Search Judges Panel said about us:
"BEST PPC CAMPAIGN" JUDGES COMMENTS:
"Kubix Digital took PPC and came up with innovative ideas to create a very well-ran campaign, making use of modern search marketing techniques that aren’t often seen in the region."
"BEST SMALL INTEGRATED SEARCH AGENCY" JUDGES COMMENTS:
"The Judges loved their approach. With strong recent work examples and exceptional achievements across all aspects of the business this is an agency doing fantastic work."
We were so proud of our awards that we took them with us everywhere thoughout our travel around Dubai!
After giving our European Search Awards award, A.K.A “Awardy”, the first class treatment (you can see Awardy’s adventures here), we had to show his step brother and sister a good time, too.
