Recently, the firm found success in SME News’ Business Elite 2019 where they were recognised as the most outstanding digital marketing firm of the year for 2019 in the North West. On the back of this remarkable win, we caught up with Seek Social’s Director Paula Braiden, who provided us with a behind the scenes glimpse of the innovative agency. Founded in 2017, Seek Social provides a data-driven approach, analysing and utilising data to swiftly act on any opportunities for their clients. Today, the firm specialises in various skills within digital marketing, and have a full in-house team of specialists who are able to offer and provide a number of services, which includes Search Engine Optimisation, Digital Technology Audit & Maintenance, Social Media Management and Brand Content Marketing to name but a few. Over the years, Paula and the team have worked with a vast range of clients, that span from one-man businesses that serve local clients, all the way to Fortune 100 companies. Regardless of size or location, the firm treat all clients equally as they believe that all businesses should have access to quality digital marketing services, as Paula explains: “Here at Seek Social, we only approach companies when they have asked for help. Additionally, we utilise Active Engagement on social media platforms, SEO, referrals and networking as channels for new clients.” Enabling the firm to provide this level of service is the dynamic, committed and experienced team which forms the backbone of Seek Social. When discussing the internal culture, Paula is keen to highlight the significant role the team plays in the overall success of the firm. “Throughout the years, we have built our team based on specialist skill sets. Each team member plays a vital role in making sure that we keep our promise to our clients and they truly care about the success of our business. “In addition to this, we also provide work experience and apprenticeship opportunities to young people in our local community, to show them that they can be more, as well as do more within the digital and technology industries.” Since their inception only a few years ago, Paula and the team at Seek Social have built their brand around transparency and working collaboratively with their clients. The team ensure that they do not tell their clients what exactly it is they need to do, instead asking them what exactly it is they want to achieve. This approach has led the firm to achieve countless goals, as well as receive a number of accolades along the way. Going forward, Seek Social already have plans in the pipeline to expand the team within the first quarter of 2020. Bringing the interview to a close, Paula signs off by revealing what the future has in store for the team at Seek Social, touching on their plans to continue growing the business, whilst remaining true to their brand. “Looking ahead to what the future holds, we will be scaling our business as we are looking towards the future. As a business we have one, five and ten year plans in place, which will result in our team growing exponentially, whilst ensuring that we keep to our brand and our commitments to our local community.” Ultimately, the future looks bright for Seek Social, especially as the team are prepared for any changes which may occur within the industry. Committed to either hiring qualified staff or putting their team through digital marketing qualifications, Paula has ensured that if and when the industry does change to become more regulated, Seek Social will be at the forefront.
