BUSINESSES seeking a higher visible presence on the internet would be well advised to reach out for guidance and support from DOWO Digital.The role this Hyde-based company plays in partnering with local businesses has been recognised after they were named Digital and Technology Business of the Year at the Pride of Tameside Business Awards.
The judges noted: “This was a good entry from an impressive business which displayed strong growth, in a tough, competitive market and they showed that even a small team can be successful.”
DOWO’s expertise in digital marketing is helping business across the UK to win more work and grow. They also provide support and advice on how to operate better in an ever-evolving digital world.
“We call ourselves a digital solutions company,” said director Ben Wood, who formed DOWO in 2015 with brother John and Steve Hardy.
“Our mission is to help businesses succeed in the digital world, whether this be through lead generation, web design, branding, search engine optimisation or digital advertising.
“We also help businesses work smarter and be more efficient using the latest technology and digital solutions.”
“This year we have also started delivering our own mobile app platform, DOWO Flow, which provides customers with a way of rapidly creating business apps for their mobile workforces to reduce admin and paperwork. This is already being embraced by businesses large and small.”
DOWO, based at Hyde Park House Business Centre on Cartwright Street, has a varied client base with the majority located in Tameside.
For Ben, getting the award is as satisfying as seeing their clients’ businesses grow and succeed because of something they have done.
“The award was great recognition for a lot of hard work,” he added. “There were a lot of late nights as the company was set up and established by John, Steve and I back in 2015”
“Now that hard work is paying off. The three of us come from different backgrounds across industries combining years of experience to create a business that is solving each of our customers’ needs.
“Seeing what we do to help companies is very satisfying – we only exist through our clients’ success.”
