What Has Been Happening At The Flock?

What Has Been Happening at the Flock?

the social lamb company promise

The Lambs have a New Pasture

Our team almost doubled in size last year, which meant it was time for us to look for a new home, and our search led us to a stunning space which has been the perfect environment for our team to thrive. The charming greenery makes for a picturesque view, a potential yoga corner and a hammock that is perfect for nestling in to enjoy our lunch, make our new office the perfect pasture for the lambs.

The Local Bleat

Born out of a desire to foster belonging and connection, we have launched our very own networking event which we will host at our offices every 3 months. The Local Bleat is not like your average networking event – there are no specific rules or structure, and it is a space where we want people to feel free to be themselves, build connections with others, and hear from inspirational speakers who will cover topics which are relevant to both personal and business growth.

Mands celebrates her 1-year workaverssary! While Mands is one of the quietest Lambs in the office, in this past year we have learnt that under her gentle demeanour there is a whole lot of sass. Her consistency and hard work show in the quality of her work, and we are looking forward to seeing her grow in leaps and bounds this year.

Kendyll recently got promoted to Team Manager. Her pure heart, meticulous eye for detail, endless creativity and wealth of knowledge that she so freely pours out to the team, make her an excellent fit for her new role. Kends has been with The Social Lamb for a year and in this time she has flourished into a leader who the team can trust and rely on for support. We are so excited for her and know that she is going to take on her new role wholeheartedly.

New Clients

We are thrilled to have signed on our newest clients; Gateway Dental, Taluka and Radical Digital all the way from the UK. We are excited to work with these incredible businesses and to transform their social media platforms. One of the great things about working with a variety of different businesses is that we learn so much from our clients too!

2020 is a year of big dreams and big goals for The Lambs! Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram to be a part of our exciting journey.

Answering the WHY in Social Media

The innovation and change that is occurring in the Digital industry at the moment has meant that Social Media is now, more than ever, about unashamedly authentic engagement. Social networks and platforms are moving and transforming constantly, resulting in the fact that a good sales pitch is no longer enough to create sales and conversions; what’s more important is creating an environment where people can engage, interact and connect in the most meaningful way.

Random acts of marketing can lead to failed social media campaigns

A Random Act Of Marketing

September 29th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “A Random Act Of Marketing”

A Random Act Of Marketing

A random act of marketing is something that is unplanned, not budgeted for, often ill-executed and not well managed, a trap many of us can fall into, especially as a small business. For larger businesses or corporate firms with big budgets, it is easy to absorb some of the possible shortfalls that may come with a random or failed Social Media campaign, and some may even build a buffer for it into their advertising budget as there is always some level of uncertainty and experimentation when it comes to Social Media and online advertising.
