Compare My Move has been named the 17th Fastest Growing Business in Wales at the 2017 Fast Growth 50 Awards.
Wales’ prestigious Fast Growth 50 Awards was set up to acknowledge and celebrate the fastest growing entrepreneurial businesses in Wales each year. Running now for 19 years, the well-established project continues to recognise welsh companies for creating wealth and employment in Wales. The glittering awards ceremony, presented by Sian LLoyd took place on the weekend at Cardiff’s Mercure Hotel where businesses and professionals from across Wales got together to celebrate success.
Where did Compare My Move Rank in the Fast Growth 50 List?
With many Welsh businesses considered for a Fast Growth 50 Award, Compare My Move were thrilled to be one of the companies to be recognised in 2017. We finished in a very respectable 17th place. Co-Founder and Director Marc Benger said this of coming in 17th position:
“When I found out that Compare My Move was to be part of this year’s Fast Growth 50 Awards, it was a very proud moment. I was delighted to make it into the top 20 and it was amazing to celebrate the occasion with Dave and the rest of our fantastic team”
How did Compare My Move Get Here?
Compare My Move founders Dave Sayce and Marc Benger set out to create a removal comparison service that looked after the interest of its users as well as the removal companies receiving the work. We created a seamless user experience for customers using the comparison tool and worked to maintain strong relationships with the removal companies in our partner network. The key for us has been in ensuring we are more than just a ‘Middle Man’ service.
During Compare My Move’s rapid growth over the years, we have truly embraced the online market and focused on developing a strong digital strategy which helped us to rise above the noise of our competitors. Originally just a two-man effort, after just two years of operation, the company doubled its’ workforce and only grew from there. Now a strong team of 8, Compare My Move continue to conquer the removal lead generation industry.
Compare My Move’s 2017
In 2017, Compare My Move have had a staff shuffle. Two new marketers have joined the team to put a stronger focus on the creative content. A new tone of voice was developed across the site with a view to making the blogs and advice articles more engaging and to truly express Compare My Move’s helpful, friendly and approachable character shine through.
2017 has also seen the launch of a new property survey portal allowing movers to compare surveyors adding further value to the customer journey. With other additional services in the offing, the rest of Compare My Move’s 2017 and 2018 is looking rosy.
A Word from the Directors
“The 2017 Fast Growth 50 Awards Evening was a fantastic event and as Company Directors we felt great pride attending with our staff that have helped to make Compare My Move such a success. Being ranked 17th has been a huge happy boost for the company and one that will carry us right through to the end of this year on a high”.
Plans for the Future
As cliché as it may sound, the sky really is the limit for Compare My Move. Our aim is to increase our brand awareness exponentially. We want the three words ‘Compare My Move’ to be the first thing that pops into people’s head when it comes to a home, office or international move.
