Altrincham based social media training and marketing company Altrincham HQ have been named the Digital Company Of The Year at the Altrincham & Sale Chamber of Commerce Awards

The Awards Ceremony took place virtually this year and was sponsored by a number of local businesses and organisations including Keyteq and Trafford Council

Shortlisted businesses and local supporters watched the announcements in real time via zoom and a virtual platform and communicated with each other via social media

The Digital Award is perhaps one more than any other that sums up life under lockdown and the pandemic

The last 12 months has seen the world increasingly go digital with over 5 years of digital transformation happening in over 12 months

There has been a 43% increase in consumption of social media during lockdown

After his award win Alex McCann of Altrincham HQ elaborates over the past 12 months

“Like any business in March I had that one week of absolute panic not knowing whether my business would survive. And then you have the realisation that you have to adapt. We’ve always helped businesses and within a week we’d turned our training business around with training via zoom. Over the last 12 months we’ve trained over 400 businesses and individuals via zoom and as well as working locally with businesses in Greater Manchester and the North West we’ve also worked as far as afield as New Zealand, Lisbon and London. There are so many opportunities in this new world of virtual”

Altrincham HQ set up in 2009 at a time when Social Media wasn’t as omnipresent as it is now and have previously won Small Business Of The Year twice at the Altrincham and Sale Chamber Of Commerce Awards and have been named the Best Social Media Company in Manchester and Kings Of Social Media Training in other award ceremonies.

He’s keen for the spotlight to be shared with others

“We wouldn’t be where we are if our clients didn’t believe in us and people didn’t believe in the power of social media. But I really want to share our award with Mark Winstanley at Altrincham Design Studio. If Mark wouldn’t have had our back in 2009 we wouldn’t had had the huge success we have had. He works with us and works with our clients and has been an absolute massive rock. This award is for Mark as well as ourselves”
