Amsive Wins Two Search Engine Land Awards

Recognition for Amsive comes along with their latest 2024 report on the importance of Audience ScienceTM to accelerate growth for clients.

Leading performance marketing agency, Amsive’s Erin Rooney Doland has been named Search Marketer of the Year, while the agency also receives top accolades for Best Local Search Marketing Initiative – SEO  in Search Engine Land’s internationally recognized program honoring excellence among the world’s top search marketers. This year’s competition saw nearly 200 submissions from leading digital agencies, in-house marketing teams, and individuals around the world.

“We are incredibly honored to receive both of these industry awards from Search Engine Land,” said Mike Coppola, President of Amsive. “This type of recognition further confirms our commitment to building teams of highly specialized industry experts who help our clients find and focus on their highest-value prospects and customers, delivering unrivaled ROI.” 

“Erin embodies the type of talent and community leader that we aspire to cultivate at Amsive,” according to Lauren Welles, Amsive’s Director of SEO. “Erin not only skillfully designs and expertly manages the strategies that help drive success for clients, but she also devotes her own time to mentoring her peers in an ongoing pursuit of results for themselves and the brands they serve. As a member of Amsive’s professional development committee and a member of Women in Tech SEO, Erin has been an instrumental part of how we train and develop our teams.”

Amsive was also named the winner of Best Local Search Initiative – SEO for their work with leading Hawaiian regional institution, American Savings Bank. Together, by harmonizing local Hawaiian culture and key product offerings, the agency and client teams delivered a differentiated user experience that was relevant, engaging, and informative. 

“The impressive awareness and performance results of this program are rooted in a strong and trusting relationship,” said Michael Candullo, Amsive’s EVP of Digital Operations. “We are so appreciative of American Savings Bank’s willingness to embrace and activate the type of creativity and change that can yield extraordinary results. It is a testament to the enduring power of collaboration and innovation.”

These wins come shortly after the unifying rebrand of Amsive and the release of the agency’s latest industry report, The Future of Audience Solutions For Privacy-First Marketing in the Post-Cookie Era, which details how brands effectively reach their audiences at scale in times when the identity shift is evolving fast.

Danny Goodwin, Search Engine Land’s Managing Editor and head of the judging committee for the 2023 program, was impressed with some innovative uses and integrations of new technologies, like generative AI. “Year after year, our work in search marketing seems to get more complex and challenging, but 2023 took it to an even more extreme level. Luckily, our industry is filled with smart, passionate people who are always ready to push the boundaries and take us where we’re going next – all while delivering ROI and value for clients and organizations.”
