We are excited to announce that Propel Marketing has won first place for Best Digital Agency in the 2017 Local Media Digital Innovation Contest.
The contest was hosted by the Local Media Association, a nonprofit that facilitates innovation for local media companies throughout North America. Through programs, conferences, webinars, and training, LMA helps more than 2,400 local media companies, their hundreds of partners, with their digital initiatives.
The Digital Innovation Contest is LMA’s first, and was designed to recognize innovative efforts by local media companies to engage their audiences. These companies include newspapers, TV and radio stations, digital news sites, digital agencies, and research and development partners.
There were 14 categories, centered around the various channels, strategies, and individuals involved in digital initiatives. From the 80 companies that competed, hundreds of entries were submitted.
The contest was judged by the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin and the Engaging News Project. According to LMA’s announcement, the judges “really liked Propel Marketing’s consumer reach and growth as an agency: they operate in 32 states and reach 19 million people every single week. Additionally, they have great third-party connections that drive their agency forward.”
Winners of each category will attend the LMA Digital Revenue Summit in Chicago on May 9-10, presenting their award-winning work and providing further insights into their strategies.
Propel Marketing is just one of Gatehouse Media’s several companies to receive an award in the Local Media Digital Innovation Contest, making GateHouse Media one of the top three award winners throughout the entire contest.
We are ecstatic for this recognition of our efforts in digital marketing and innovation, and look forward to building upon those efforts to continue facilitating success for local businesses.
