We won our first award ! Yes we did it & we are super proud !
But how did we end up last night, celebrating our victory at the Spirito for the ceremony of the Agency of the Year awards?
2023 is Beinfluence's year! Early this month, on the 9th of March, around 9:43 AM, we received the news that we were nominated for the Agency of the Year Awards organized by MediaMarketing.be. This was our first nomination for an award, and we were selected in the Newcomer Agency category for the best advertising agency under five years old. The whole team was on fire, but we still had some steps before taking home the award.
The second round of AOTY 2023 took place on March 21st. At 3:25 PM, Boris and Thomas, our two co-founders, went to defend BecInfluence's case in front of the jury. Presenting Beinfluence history and how far the agency has come since September 2019: from two young people with a crazy ambition to launch an influence agency when no one really knew much about it yet to this important recognition.
In 3 years, BeInfluence team went from 2 to 28, from one office in university to 2 offices in Brussels and Paris, from 3 clients, a couple of friends and 4 campaigns in Brussels to 60 clients, 8,000 content creators and over 500 campaigns in 20 countries.
In 3 years, this agency has gone from being totally anonymous to being recognised by Belgium's biggest agencies and advertisers as a major player in the ecosystem.
As a specialist agency in influencer marketing, this award represents a lot. Influence has not always been understood or respected, so this prize is above all for all our colleagues who fight daily to promote a beautiful, responsible and powerful influence. This award is only possible thanks to our fantastic team, who does an amazing job!
We are also here thanks to our first clients who trusted us at our beginnings : Doctors without borders, the European Commission and Brussel Beer Project. Thank you also to our loyal clients who keep choosing us year after year, allowing us to create great projects and great campaigns:Carrefour, European Commission, Delsey, Lunch garden, Lonchamps, Stabilo, ... And to our newest clients, thank you for joining this ride.
