Why Social Progress
We are a social media agency specialising in digital marketing. Whether you’re looking to outsource your social media marketing to us or train yourself or your employees to manage social media in-house, we’re here to help you get to grips with social media for YOUR business.
Every member of the Social Progress Team actively manages social media for clients, ensuring that we are up to speed with the latest platform updates and highly familiar with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram as well as Pinterest, Google My Business and YouTube.
With a Team of 6 people, Social Progress offers a variety of services to deliver strategic digital marketing. From website development to photography, videography to drone imagery and creation of social media graphics, we provide professional and tailored packages to suit each business.
Social Progress also specialise in strategic social media advertising (including Facebook Advertising and Instagram Advertising). Did you know that you can do promotional campaigns on most social media platforms now? If you already have a strong digital presence and you’re looking to take your social media to the next level, why not have a chat with us about one-off social media campaigns or adding an advertising budget to your Content Management Package. Expect results!
What makes us different from the other “digital marketing experts”? Well, Social Progress started out sole-y as a social media training company in 2011 and has developed into a team offering social media management as well as training. We aim for “quality over quantity” so you can be assured that whether you come to us for training or to outsource your social media marketing to us, we will endeavour to get to know you and your business well and tailor the delivery of the service to compliment your marketing plan.
If you’d like to find out more about us, read on or drop us an email to email@example.com to book an appointment for a chat and a brew to see how we can help you.
