Search Awards 2014 – Best SEO Campaign

Ian Lurie

^ Note: That’s Ken Colborn up there. Keep reading. It’ll all make sense. ^

We won! Best SEO Campaign of 2014. Allow me to wax philosophical for a second:

My team constantly teaches me new stuff. Their skills and approach are a constant inspiration, and I can’t say it enough times: It’s such an honor to get to work with this team. Every day, through ups and downs (and ups again).

So when Portent got nominated for five Search Awards, I was pretty dang proud, and a wave of high fives traveled through the office.

When we won the Best SEO Campaign of 2014, though, I was overjoyed. In addition to celebrating Ken Colborn, the primary SEO Specialist on this project, I want to point out our entire team’s efforts. Marketing campaigns only succeed with collaboration. Everyone at Portent helps with these projects: Project managers, account managers, content folks, technical and UX SEOs, offsite and social. Everyone.

Thanks folks. You earned this one.
