Find Out What This Social Media Agency In Manchester Has Been Up To
Being a Social Media Agency in Manchester, the last few weeks have been a bit of a work-filled blur! Our team has gone from strength to strength… We said hello to our new Digital Designer, Iris. And we gave a big welcome to our newest Videographer, Kris. The first few weeks have flown by, and they have comfortably settled into our crazy family. Our creative diaries have been so stacked to the brim, we’ve barely even had time for a brew! From shooting videos, to rebrands, to networking events and moving offices, it’s been a pretty packed few weeks. Oh, and we moved into our beautiful new offices on Lloyd Street! Perfectly positioned for those after-work cocktails in Spinningfields!
Dining With Award-Winning Architect Ian Simpson
Like anyone in Manchester, we jumped at the chance to meet Ian Simpson (the infamous creator of breath-taking 301 Deansgate – Beetham Tower.) Our Creative Director, Ray, was invited to have an intimate dinner with some of Manchester’s greatest business men and women. They chatted all things architecture, Manchester buildings and Ian’s life adventures. So, Ray definitely came back with some great stories for the rest of the office!
Pro Manchester Networking
Tom and Jonathan took a trip to Pro Manchester’s networking event in Spinningfields. (Another great event we couldn’t wait to attend.) They enjoyed a complimentary breakfast before sitting down to an insightful talk on the future of live marketing, presented by Sam Ward and Ric Brooks of Tuna Fish Media. Live video is an ever changing field, so as a Social Media Agency in Manchester, it’s always great to get some new insights into the global giant that is, Facebook Live. Even better that this talk was right on our doorstep!
Zouk Tea Bar – Spring Showcase
Also in March, Zouk Tea Bar called us in to execute a show-stopping event to debut their latest menu offerings. As a top Social Media Agency in Manchester, we were the clear choice. We hosted an exclusive blogger event to reveal their Spring Summer Menu. The night was a success, with over 50 attendees and plenty of cocktails, we created a night to remember. Not to mention, we successfully got #ZoukMCR trending on Twitter! These little beauties were a mix of Prosecco and Tequila…. enough said!
Zouk were over the moon with the high-quality video we produced for them in such a short turn over – a lovely reminder of a great event. Check it out below! Book in for lunch or dinner with Zouk and give the new menu a try – you won’t be disappointed!
Nominated For Best Newcomer
In addition to everything else, we then became the latest members of Pro-Manchester and Downtown in Business. As well as this, we were thrilled be the only Social Media Agency in Manchester to receive a nomination for Manchester’s Newcomer of the Year Award! (Give us a cheeky vote.) Jonathan pulled the short straw and bravely ventured in front of Downtown Business’ camera to give an amazing Engage Hub interview! Next stop, Hollywood?
Our busy Business Development Manager, Holly, then made her way over to the Northern Restaurant and Bar Show. We dropped in to see our friends over at Pro-Manchester, but not before saying hello to Toast PR at their stand. The event was a blast!
Video, Video, Video…
Finally, to top off the craziest March to date, we have shot and edited a whole load of video content. We were thrilled to be working with Ferrious, Manchester’s most prolific and passionate interior designers. We successfully showcased their gorgeous showroom, but not before we sat and got to know the creative team! Be sure to give this one a watch, it’s amazing (even if we do say so ourselves).
Also, if you saw our previous blog, Kris took an outing to the Northern Quarter and soaked in the amazing street art. We shot, edited and produced this video all in the same day, it shows off some of our favourite pieces from around the city! Check it out, you might recognise a few…
So, what a year already, and we’re not even half way through! No wonder we haven’t had time for a brew.
Oh, and one last thing… we’re ditching the pineapple branding! Watch this space!
Ray and the Engage Hub team!
