Littlewoods Ireland brings home gold at the Landy Awards

Littlewoods Ireland was awarded gold in the category of best integration of search into cross-channel marketing at the second international annual Search Engine Land Awards in New York.

This is the first year an Irish company has won a Landy Award, with Littlewoods Ireland overcoming stiff competition from international companies, including Morgan Stanley’s Super Bowl Campaign.

Littlewoods Ireland’s winning campaign looked to improve customer experience across all of their platforms for shoppers of their Autumn Winter collection in 2015 and was delivered in partnership with Dublin-based digital marketing firm Wolfgang Digital. The successful campaign involved optimisation across multiple forms of social media, as well as search – both organic and paid.

The Landy Awards received nearly 200 entries and were created to recognise excellence in search marketing initiatives. Entrants came from a range of sectors and disciplines across the world including companies such as Morgan Stanley, Deliveroo, and Virgin

Speaking about the win, Rossa Butler, eCommerce and Marketing Manager for Littlewoods Ireland, said: “Customers today are no longer shopping on one device so ensuring they have a smooth and enjoyable customer experience whether it’s on our mobile site, desktop or through our social and digital activity is paramount.

“We’ve been working closely with Wolfgang Digital to make it as easy as possible for our customers to find what they need, when they need it and this is something we’re really passionate about.”

Littlewoods Ireland and Wolfgang Digital were one of five included in the shortlist for their category, which also featured:

  • LSEO for The Commonwealth Medical College
  • MediaVest / Spark for Morgan Stanley
  • Power Digital Marketing for
  • Wolfgang Digital for Littlewoods Ireland
  • Zimmerman & Be Found Online for Jamba Juice
