Since launching in 2013 we’ve helped many small to medium-sized businesses around the world use social media marketing to keep in touch with their target market and grow their brand presence online.
What started out as a one-Lamb band has grown into a flock of Lambs working out of Durban, South Africa and Oxfordshire in the United Kingdom. The company’s first ever social media post for a client can be traced back to Dubai where Laura was responsible for managing the social media accounts for a five-star resort there.
She returned to South Africa, working a full time job and doing social media as a side hustle for clients in the evenings. Her work soon found traction which meant she was soon taking Fridays off from her full-time job to meet new clients.
With momentum on her side, Laura made the decision to go on her own in 2016, setting up a home office. A year later she was joined by Cali and the ‘flock’ became official. In 2018 The Social Lamb moved into new offices in Mount Edgecombe, KwaZulu-Natal. A year later they renovated their offices to make space for some new Lambs and opened a new office in the UK. With clients all over the world Skype dates and meetings are as common at the office as a morning coffee to start the day and an afternoon glass of wine to end it off!
Why Lamb!? Well, before Laura got married she quite liked the idea of having her now (thankfully) husband’s initials with her name – Laura Ann Mitchell. Adding a silent B seemed perfect and the name stuck. Voila!
The company now has an awesome personality and a memorable name. At networking events you may hear others Baaaaaaaaah at the Lambs whenever we talk. We love it!
Where to next? The sky’s the limit and with our amazing self-driven team we want to be the number one referral when social media management services are required.
