Judges for the a4u Awards have shortlisted Azam Marketing in two categories

The shortlist has been announced for this year’s Performance Marketing Awards, and following on from our successes in previous years, Azam is delighted to have bagged two fantastic nominations – ‘Best Lead Generation Campaign’ and ‘Best Finance Publisher’.

The judges commented that Azam’s entry for the Lead Generation category demonstrated “a well crafted and thought-out campaign, with significant ROI and impressive results”.

On announcing the finalists, Matt Wood from event organisers Existem noted that submissions for this year’s awards were up by a massive 75% with the standard being exceptionally high, so we are over-the-moon to be shortlisted alongside so many worthy nominees.

It has certainly been a busy year at Azam with a host of exciting new clients coming on board across all our divisions. Our email team has enjoyed phenomenal growth, running hugely successful campaigns for top advertisers including Dell, HP, B&Q, LOVEFiLM and Egg!

We have also had lots of new wins in our Affiliate Management and Search Marketing divisions, including TravelSpec, Borro, ActivInstinct and Millet Sports, and others.

This year’s awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on the 17th May will be hosted by comedian Rufus Hound and promises to be another excellent event. We hope to see you there!
