ScotRail Business Direct Award for Excellence in Business Service & Engagement 2016:
Established in February last year this small business based in Lochalsh has looked to provide marketing and business development support to businesses across the Highlands.
By recognising a gap in the market and the challenges that some small businesses in rural areas face in accessing expertise to assist in growing their business this company looks to provide tailored support to help businesses increase sales. From websites and social media, to identifying funding sources and business growth opportunities, this business has seen growth success for those it has worked with over the past year.
Commenting on their success, Exclamation Marketing owner Anisha Macdermid said:
“I’m delighted that my small company has been acknowledged in this way and that the work I do supporting businesses across Skye, Lochalsh and the Hebrides is recognised.
“From social media and marketing to helping identify funding and business development, I look to provide a tailored service that meets the individual needs of my clients, recognising that particularly in small rural areas access to such support can be more challenging.
“This award marks only the start of Exclamation Marketing’s journey as we continue to grow and help more businesses.”
Rob Shorthouse, Communications Director at the ScotRail Alliance, said:
“This is a great example of a business that has recognised a gap in the market and looked to provide a range of services to meet the needs of businesses, not just in their community, but the wider area.
“By being innovative and flexible in their approach they have helped a number of businesses grow and develop and I wish them every success as they grow.”
