Webbed Marketing, a social media marketing and search engine optimization
company in central Ohio, earned several awards from local and national
organizations for their work in Internet marketing, including
recognition from the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, Business First of
Columbus, the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals
(AMCP) and TechColumbus.
The Columbus Chamber of Commerce awarded Webbed Marketing’s CEO and founder, Bill Balderaz, with the Small Business Leader of the Year
award. A panel of Chamber members voted to determine Balderaz the Small
Business Leader of the Year, after he was nominated by an outside
party. The award recognizes a prominent business leader for what they
bring to the Columbus region and how they inspire others. According to
the Chamber, Columbus is known for its spirit of entrepreneurship, and
leaders like Balderaz contribute greatly to the local economy.
“Earning Small Business Leader of the Year was a tremendous honor for
me, and my team at Webbed Marketing,” Balderaz said. “At Webbed
Marketing, we work hard to stay ahead of Internet marketing trends and
this is demonstrated in the work we produce for our clients. This kind
of recognition is fuel to keep up the innovative work we’re doing for
our clients every day.”
Webbed Marketing also earned a nomination for the Business First of Columbus “Best Places to Work”
award. Business First’s Best Places to Work program recognizes the top
companies in central Ohio based on workplace satisfaction surveys.
