Symboliq Announced as a 2021 Local Excellence Award Winner by UpCity!

For more than a decade, UpCity’s mission has been—and continues to be—to help businesses find B2B service providers they can trust. The UpCity Recommendability Rating was developed to determine a service provider’s credibility and recommendability, giving UpCity the confidence to recommend them to the more than 1.5 million businesses that visit their site. 

Each year, UpCity analyzes and scores more than 70,000 service providers based on their UpCity Recommendability Rating and acknowledges the top national and local providers with an UpCity Excellence Award. The results are in, and we won!

We are ecstatic to announce that the Symboliq team has been recognized as one of the top B2B service providers of 2021 in the Chicago area by UpCity!

Local Excellence Chicago Award Winner - Symboliq Media

Mark Tepper, SVP of Sales & Customer Success at UpCity, had this to say about Symboliq:

“Symboliq’s passion for their customers’ success is apparent through their award-winning designs, uniquely-crafted content, and commitment to driving brand growth. Congratulations to the team for winning a Local Excellence Award in 2021.” 

– Mark Tepper, SVP of Sales & Customer Success

This recognition has been driven in large part by our 4.9-star review rating on UpCity. Here are a few of our favorite pieces of feedback we’ve received from our incredible customers:

“Symboliq took it upon themselves to find the right feel for my audience, and took liberties on the design that we all simply love! Our site: has never looked better!! On top of the great design, was great service and made us feel like we mattered, and listened to all our needs. They were responsive, easy to work with and we had a fun time and great experience working with the team. Working with Symboliq was our best decision moving forward into 2021. Thank You Symboliq Team, from the PoolSkim Team!”

-Jan Piazza, Symboliq customer

“Symboliq is my choice for everything I need with my website and my company! They truly go above and beyond and deliver in a timely manner! I can’t recommend them enough!”

-Joey Thurman, Symboliq customer

It is such an honor to receive this award and we want to thank the UpCity team for the recognition. Symboliq believes in teamwork, communication, and transparency throughout every step of the creative process. This has allowed us to partner with different businesses and stories throughout the years.

Thank you to our clients for choosing Symboliq.
