A financial comparison site developed in Norfolk is now competing with the country’s top household names after being shortlisted for the prestigious Website of the Year Award.
The Norwich-based company was set up by three entrepreneurs who built up their digital media expertise while working for online agencies including Google and insurance company Aviva.
Knowyourmoney.co.uk users can compare costs and benefits of current accounts, business banking, loans, mortgages, breakdown cover and a credit card comparison table has recently been introduced.
Their experience, tenacity and decision to remain independent from bank or insurance company ownership has paid off – www.knowyourmoney.co.uk has now hit 400,000 visits a month.
As the number of knowyourmoney.co.uk users continues to grow towards half a million each month, the website has achieved national recognition by being shortlisted forWebsite of the Year Award.
More than 70,000 visitors have passed through the breakdown cover comparison tables every single month making Know Your Money the largest comparison site for breakdown cover in the UK.
This success has been attributed to the strong partnerships with brands such as The AA, The RAC & Green Flag as well as the introduction of a simple to use comparison table.
Know Your Money’s Breakdown Channel Manager, Jamie Wright said:”Keeping on top of search trends and a close handle on what people are actually looking for on search engines such as Google and Bing, along with excellent brand partner relationships and a well-optimised site, has enabled us to deliver sustained growth in this channel”
Head of Partnerships Mike Jones hopes to replicate the results from the breakdown cover campaign into the recently launched credit card channel and is keen to continue the growth as further staff are employed.
“We started knowyourmoney.co.uk as we believed we could offer consumers a clear and straightforward comparison service.”
“Over the last three years we have grown into a comparison site capable of competing with the big household brands for premium positions within Google.The Website of the year award is a real opportunity for the team at knowyourmoney.co.uk to gain national recognition for the fantastic effort they put in.”
