Testimonials

We are still pinching ourselves after last week’s Global Social Awards. Wolfgang Digital is now the proud holder of the title: Best Large Global Social Media Agency! As well as the Best Large Agency award and Best Integrated Campaign (BodySlims), together with our clients we won Silver in Best Use of TikTok (Elverys), Best Direct Response Campaign (HomeSecure) and Best Long Term Use of Social Media (BodySlims). These wins are a testament to the team’s hard work and dedication to delivering exceptional results for our clients. Equally, they’re a testament to our clients who work so hard with us to try out new ideas on a weekly basis. Roisin Linnie- Head of Social

We’re delighted to announce that we have WON the ‘Best Low Budget Campaign’ for our work with Caerphilly Skips. The Global Social Media Awards are an extremely prestigious award to win and we’re so proud of the work we have done. We have been working with Caerphilly Skips for a long time and our Social campaigns have always performed incredibly well – so to be recognised for this work is the icing on the cake
