Another 365 days around the sun, and it’s safe to say that we’ve all learnt a thing or two, including that morale is much improved with an office dog around (even if productivity isn’t) and that your Uber will always be £2 more than the app quoted.
The Social Club is flourishing and we have big plans for 2018, a high priority being to book in a spa day to recoup and plan our world domination - because all the best ideas happen in the sauna. Aside from that, we’ll be busy working with our clients to ensure they meet their goals and smash targets left, right and centre.
The perfect match
A big learning curve for us has been the emphasis on being the right match for our clients and vice versa. Our working style is friendly and informal, but always with one eye on the goal - which is to exceed client expectations and most importantly, be passionate about what we are promoting. As a small business, it’s tempting to pitch for any brief that comes along, but we’ve come to realise that our skills align with specific industries and it’s important to stay true to our core beliefs, working with brands with a heart.
Giving something back
This mentality has led us to work for a couple of not for profit causes in 2017, including One Supper Club, an amazing pop up who donate all profits to the Sussex Heart Foundation, and Emma Betty lent her PR skills to Goodmoney CIC - an initiative that promotes the usage of gift vouchers to support local businesses and help them flourish, whilst also supporting Time to Talk Befriending in the run-up to Christmas, as they tackle loneliness in the elderly community.
Mixing work and pleasure
We joined the fantastic co-working hub, Platf9rm and now expect a fresh G&T on our desks at 4pm each Friday (Brighton Gin, naturally). Our toes have dipped into the world of fitness where we collaborated with local Bootcamp company, Stridefit to trace their path for 2018 in a Brand Identity Workshop, and Emma P moulded the digital marketing strategy for Live Love Yoga.
All that talk of exercise made us hungry, so when some tasty opportunities fell on our plate we jumped at the chance to work with the Disappearing Dining Club, communicating their story to a national audience as they opened their first permanent restaurant, Little Quiet, and collaborating on the PR and marketing strategy for multi-award winning Brighton restaurant, Isaac At.
