Social media agency Engage Hub is celebrating a record year after being crowned Best Social Media Agency in the Talk of Manchester Awards which are designed to recognise the best the city has to offer.
Thousands of people cast their votes but only one outstanding Agency could win the coveted title, beating off the likes of My Clever Agency, Down at the Social and Social Chain.
Engage Hub, fresh off the back of winning ‘Newcomer of the year’ at the City of Manchester Business Awards, were nominated for 3 awards at the TOMs.
Also, earlier this year they were judged by the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund as worthy recipients of £100k of growth funding to help them create more jobs and acquire a new home in Manchester’s First Street. The two and a half thousand square foot space will be a custom build and clients will have access to a stylish workspace, lounge and bar area.
MD Ray Sherlock says, “It is fantastic to gain city wide recognition by winning the pinnacle award of Social Media Agency of the Year and this has inspired us to think about being ahead of the curve for 2018.”
“We have spent the past few months refining our service offering to bring ‘Social selling’ to the forefront of our offering for 2018.”
2018 is set to see the rise of ‘Social Commerce’, referring to consumers moving away from traditional e-commerce sites to purchasing decisions being made directly through social channels. Facebook already offer this on their platform with Instagram and Snapchat looking to roll out similar services next year. Ahead of the curve, Engage Hub already offer a ‘social selling’ service whereby they engage with consumers directly on twitter to influence their purchase decisions and buying behavior.
This highly targeted offering along with the opening of a London office will help Engage Hub to hit the £1,000,000 turnover target in place for 2018.
