Manchester-based video production company Eight Engines and marketing partners Aqueous Digital have been named as finalists in the European Search Awards, recognising their outstanding achievements in the field of local marketing campaigns.

The collaboration between Eight Engines and Aqueous Digital has significantly elevated the profile of Eight Engines, renowned for its innovative approach to producing attention-grabbing videos for adverts, events, and social media. Their remarkable success in enhancing digital visibility has earned them a coveted spot in the best local SEO campaign category at this year’s European Search Awards.

Jack Leigh, a director at Eight Engines, expressed his delight at the nomination, stating, “To be nominated is a fantastic cherry on the cake for us. It’s been a long process to establish and develop our digital presence so we can compete with perhaps better-known rivals in the local marketplace.”

Eight Engines has emerged as a frontrunner in film and video production in the north of England, crafting captivating content that resonates with audiences worldwide. Initially established to produce television dramas for the BBC, the company has expanded its repertoire to include video content production for a diverse range of clients, spanning from household names to SMEs and public sector entities.

Reflecting its evolution and growth, Eight Engines recently underwent a brand refresh and launched a new website, with the support of Aqueous Digital and Manchester web design agency Riot & Rebel.

Jonathan Guy, managing director at Aqueous Digital, commended the partnership’s success, stating, “To have reached the finals of such a prestigious international award with our customer Eight Engines is a fantastic endorsement for the team. Our partnership has demonstrated how, even in a competitive environment, results can be achieved with no gimmicks or quick fixes – just a robust digital marketing plan that works.”

The enduring partnership between Eight Engines and Aqueous Digital, which commenced five years ago, continues to yield impressive results. Leigh emphasised the invaluable support provided by Aqueous Digital, remarking, “Aqueous is the most dependable partner we have in business; the team is always there to support us on our journey, and it’s massively paid off – we’re getting a constant stream of fantastically interesting leads through the website.”

He added, “We couldn’t be happier; plus, we now rank higher on search engines than a large production company in Manchester that once turned me down for a runner position, so it’s a win-win for me!”

The European Search Awards recognise excellence in search, pay-per-click (PPC), and content marketing across Europe, celebrating exceptional talent, creativity, and innovation in the marketing industry. Category winners for the 2024 edition will be announced during a prestigious ceremony in Prague on May 23rd.
