Digital marketing agency ThoughtShift has been shortlisted for work with luxury watch winder and jewellery storage brand WOLF in the Digital – SEO category of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Marketing Excellence Awards 2016.
This marks the third year in a row that ThoughtShift has been shortlisted for a CIM Marketing Excellence Award, having won the Marketing Performance Measurement category for work with Roomservice by CORT last year.
The nominated SEO campaign took place in 2015 and was based on work for the UK site of this transatlantic brand.

“ThoughtShift have more than exceeded my expectations. They are thorough and detailed, providing me with reports that are easy to understand and logical. In the UK the increase has been a whopping 505% – all in all we are very happy with the results!”
