Update: We are thrilled to announce we won Highly Commended ‘Best Finance Publisher’ at this year’s Performance Marketing Awards! Thanks for all your support.


Judges for this year's Performance Marketing Awards have selected Azam Marketing as a finalist in not one, but two categories!

The finalists have just been announced for this year’s Performance Marketing Awards and Azam is delighted to have bagged another two fantastic nominations: ‘Best Finance Publisher’ and ‘Best Use of Email’.

This is the fourth year in a row that Azam has been shortlisted in a variety of categories. In total we have now been nominated for an incredible ten awards since 2009 (including being Highly Commended and winning of course!)

Showing the breadth and depth of our agency, the categories we have been selected as a finalist for include Best Agency (twice), Best Lead Generation Campaign (twice), Best Paid Search Partnership, Best Advertiser, Best Affiliate Manager In House or at an Agency, Best Finance Publisher (twice) and Best Use of Email.

On announcing this year’s finalists, Matthew Wood, founder of A4u and the Performance Marketing Awards, has said: “Judges have been impressed with the level of multiple channel integration this year. The desire to increase revenue through their performance marketing activity by all demographics has been evident, and with well managed programmes, technology integration and successful innovation, this year’s shortlist proves that investment on a pay-on-performance model is reaping rewards.”

It has certainly been a busy year so far 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 Body Shop, Honda, Barclays, Gala Bingo and Vodafone. We have also had lots of new wins in our Affiliate Management and Search Marketing divisions.

This year’s awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on the 15th May promises to be another amazing event. We hope to see you there!
