Property consultant Eddisons, whose head office is in Leeds, has won a top national award for its ‘clear and easy to navigate’ website. Organised by industry body the Chartered Surveyors’ Company, and property trade title Estates Gazette, the annual Property Marketing Awards are judged by an independent panel of leading marketing professionals.
Eddisons’ website, which was designed for the firm by agency DS Emotion, was judged on its performance against business goals as well as its creative execution.
Eddisons operations partner James Foster said: “We’re really thrilled to receive this award which demonstrates our commitment to delivering outstanding marketing for our clients’ properties. The website is critical to our business and I am really pleased that our marketing team and our developers are deservedly recognised for their creativity and vision.
“As a multi-disciplined firm providing a wide range of services including building consultancy, property agency and valuations, it’s important that the Eddisons website is easy to use and informative for any client or potential client.”
Lawrence Alexander, DS Emotion strategy and innovation director, said: “A central element of our brief was to create audience clarity, which was no mean feat for such a complex organisation which we calculated to have around 70 different audiences. Using a grid system, the simplicity and precision of the new website has been transformational for Eddisons and enables anyone interested in any of their services or sectors to easily use and navigate the site.”
Eddisons employs 300 people at 20 offices across the UK and provides a diverse range of services including property auctions, insurance, asset and business sales and property management.
