We are excited to announce that we have been named as finalists for the Lincolnshire Media Business Awards 2019.
We will be heading to the Awards Ceremony held at the Lincolnshire Showground Epic Centre on 17th October. The awards will see Lincolnshire businesses go head to head for awards across a range of categories voted by a panel of independent judges. The categories range from Apprentice of the Year, Business Person of the Year to Heart of the Community and Innovation Award. With 16 categories, it will be an evening with plenty of amazing winners.
DBS have been nominated for TWO categories this year: Employer of the Year and Digital Campaign of the Year.
The awards are now in their 16th year and it is a great event that shows the efforts of businesses across Lincolnshire. All of the winners are then put forward to with the prestigious Business of the Year Overall winner.
Commenting on being shortlisted, DBS Director Julie Priestley said. “We are delighted to be finalists for both the Employer of the Year and Best Digital Campaign awards. It makes great business sense to us to invest in our team, they are the heart of DBS Internet Marketing and are continually striving to achieve great results for all our clients. We are looking forward to an evening celebrating all the amazing local businesses in Lincolnshire. It should be a great evening.”
We are so proud to be finalists and are looking forward to the awards ceremony as it’s a great evening and its lovely to be able to celebrate the amazing achievements of local businesses.

Business Lincolnshire has unveiled a new grants programme for SMEs who are looking to grow their business. £4 million of EU funding has been earmarked for Greater Lincolnshire. One of the areas that Business Lincolnshire is keen to pinpoint is how to make Lincolnshire SMEs more digitally capable which could include developing a firm online marketing strategy. "If you can demonstrate that investment in your company will create new jobs or significantly increase your turnover you may be able to access a grant to part fund the activity" said Toni O'Brien, a Business Growth Adviser with Business Lincolnshire. "This is brilliant news for Greater Lincolnshire SMEs" commented DBS director David Clarke, "I would urge all DBS's Lincolnshire clients to have a short chat with me about their growth plans and I can then quickly pass you on to Toni O'Brien to see if your firm can access the £4 million funding".
