That’s right, the readers of the Mount Airy News have cast their votes, and the winner of the 2019 Mountie Award for BEST of the BEST in Digital Marketing is none other than Cibirix!
Now, you may not typically care much about what the citizens of a small town in the foothills of western North Carolina think, much less which local businesses they deem to be the best. But for us at Cibirix, we consider it a pretty high honor to be selected for this award. Why? Because Mount Airy, NC is home base for us.
If you’re a fan of the 1960s TV classic The Andy Griffith Show, then Mount Airy may ring a bell for you. Mount Airy is Andy Griffith’s hometown, and was in fact the basis for the show’s beloved fictional town of Mayberry. Mount Airy has changed quite a bit since the 60s, but it still represents much of what people remember as being iconic about Mayberry.
Mount Airy, and the greater region of Surry County in which it is situated, is a community where folks are still cordial and speak to one another by name. People still wave at you when you drive by. Neighborhood cookouts are still a thing here, and Friday Night Football is still a big deal. Everybody knows (or is seemingly somehow related to) pretty much everybody, and the common bond of families and neighbors is still strong. One result of being in a place that’s so familiar is that there aren’t too many secrets here – news travels fast, and so too does gossip (when the news isn’t all that good or interesting)!
Cibirix is proud to have served clients across the U.S. and around the world, and we certainly appreciate when they recommend us or have nice things to say about us. But at the end of the day, Mount Airy is where we live and work, and folks ‘round here tend to know one another pretty well. To be tapped by the folks who know us best as the Best of the Best for Digital Marketing is perhaps one of the highest accolades that we at Cibirix could ever hope to receive!
