Wessex FM Business Awards 2015
As some of you will already know, Dorset Digital Solutions were told we had been nominated for 2 categories in the Wessex FM business awards; "Best Small Business" and "Best Business in Weymouth & Portland".
We posted to our social media channels to try and drum up some more nominations from anyone that had any dealings with us and the response that we got was staggering! You guys and gals really did pull out all the stops.
Anyway, enough dribbling on... WE WON!
We were elated enough to hear that we were even considered for the award, but to win it is beyond awesome!
DDS was against some pretty strong competition including the Hand Made Pie & Ale House (which is not only a truly fantastic business but is partly responsible for our expanding waste lines). Being against so many great businesses was intimidating to say the least, but makes winning the award even more special to us.
We would really love to pass on personal thanks to all that have nominated us but due to data protection the names can not be released.
There are however some obvious ones so we'll give out free hugs when we see them next.
Some nominations include:
"Excellent responsive support but mainly I think they have brilliant new ideas which are intuitive and bang up to date. They have proved that they are a great team and they both enhance each other's skills."
"I am extremely happy with the website that they created for me but they have helped me by giving me a special rate as I am fundraising for a charity. I am totally illiterate with computers and their guidance has been absolutely invaluable."
"They have been brilliant at setting up and designing a website for my new education organisation. They have got my spec perfectly and have gone above and beyond"
"A unique team - they do not try to do each others jobs and a are not afraid to be honest when something is wrong or just rubbish."
"They provide excellent websites and the business has gone from strength to strength in a very short time. They do not necessarily conform to the normal model of website designers. As a businessman I know that most businesses try to have design ideas of their own when trying to sort out websites and other on-line marketing it is usually not their expertise and it is why they hire someone to do it for them. I believe that Barry and Aaron are honest enough to not just take peoples money and create what is asked of them but to turn down work if it means that they would be selling out their reputation and professionalism. This is what makes them stand out from other designers."
