October win another MARA in 2013

October scores a hat-trick by winning a 3rd year in a row with Best Social Media Strategy for 2013.

After another long day at October Towers, we slipped into our LBD’s, slapped on our lippy and headed out to THE recruitment event of the year: The MARA’s.

Champagne popping, dinner underway and conversation flowing with ex colleagues, competitors and partners, we headed to our seats confidently, but with baited breath for the night ahead.

With so many more competitors than last year, we knew there was some fierce competition, but we still felt confident we’d scoop at least one for all our hard work this year.

After a little bit of cabaret in the form of burlesque, fire eaters and hula girls, the awards kicked off and we were truly amazed by the incredible entries – what a fantastic showcase of talent on display this year. Winner after winner, we cheered, we congratulated our peers but our time was getting close, would we, wouldn’t we……?

Our big moment arrived……………….

“Best Social Media Strategy: October

In an often subjective category the judges unanimously agreed that this year’s winner most definitively displayed a cross-channel social strategy that resulted in significant community development and tangible commercial ROI.”

YES!! We regained our title from last year! To say we were elated would be an understatement!!

We toasted our win with a few more glasses of bubbly, lots of smiles and finished the evening with some crazy dancing – think Stavros Flatly crossed with Miley Cyrus and you get the picture, sooooo glad we lost the camera!

Now the hard work starts again and back to October HQ for lots more fantastic work for 2014 – Digital Recruitment Done Differently.
