At this years SCDI Awards the Scotrail Business Award for Excellence in Business Service and Engagement went to Exclamation Marketing. Established in February last year this small business based in Lochalsh is providing marketing and business development support to businesses across the Highlands.
Exclamation Marketing recognised a gap in the market and related to the challenges that some small businesses face especially in rural areas. Support is tailored to help individual businesses with all services, from Websites and SEO, to PR, Social Media and Blogging.
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.”
