The current BVDW ranking of German Internet agencies this year again draws a topography that tells of the ups and downs of the market, and offers orientation in the industry.
The Bundesverband Digitale Wirtschaft (BVDW) e.V. (German Association for the Digital Economy) recently published its annual Internet agency ranking - the most important thing up front: Blackbit continues to grow despite the Covid 19 crisis and once again makes up places in the ranking.
When we search for something – whether information, service or product– we use Google. The search engine not only knows our search terms, but also knows better and better what we actually want to find.
The direction of the flow of information in advertising has changed fundamentally. Fewer and fewer people watch TV and are reached by TV advertising that supposedly has a wide reach. Fewer and fewer are turning onto this communicative one-way street. Instead, people are surfing online in search of specific information.
Covid-19 had an impact on pretty much all areas of society and unexpectedly made 2020 a record year for online retail. What developments will shape e-commerce in 2021?
One of the big buzzwords in the current year is D2C - Direct to Customer. It describes a development that some big brands already initiated years ago: More and more well-known manufacturers are skipping the trade and marketing their products directly to fans and friends of their goods.
We followed the live broadcast of the award ceremony of the coveted Digital Award with great excitement and congratulate all the deserving winners.
For more than seven years, the DDA has been considered one of the most important awards for outstanding digital creations. This year again, achievements of special creativity and innovation in the digital economy were honoured with the award.
Sustainability in e-commerce: Blackbit pushes the business of the traditional and high value retailer for wooden goods with optimizations of the xt:Commerce store.
As a company with history, Hofmeister is aware of its ecological as well as social responsibility. The wholesaler and importer stands for sustainability and lives up to its social and ecological obligations: production from renewable raw materials, manufacturing in small, regional companies or family workshops, short supply chains and climate-neutral as well as plastic-free shipping - truly lived, strong values that Hofmeister can be proud of! Hofmeister therefore wanted to communicate its convincing philosophy more clearly to the outside world. Blackbit tackled this task and implemented technical and visual optimizations of the Hofmeister online store in three successive steps.

Causes and interactions of simple, but also highly complex, system malfunctions are more easily identified and specifically remedied with the help of the Datadog dashboard.
It's getting exciting! With one of our most ambitious projects, we are currently on the shortlist for the Digital Award 2021 in the Visual Design category.
After Blackbit already received the Shop Usability Award 2016 as "Most Innovative Shop" for the Viani website in 2016, a lot has happened. Technical innovations, new trends and developments in e-commerce and in the food industry, and last but not least COVID-19 have had an enormous impact on online retail and generated unexpectedly high growth rates.
