1) Born Social

RATED: 4.6 out of 5

Who Are They?

Born Social have a great tagline that we believe sums up their company well: ‘We do social media for David’s… not Goliaths’.

They are an award-winning social media agency founded 6 years ago to help ambitious and growing brands find a bespoke strategy that works for them. If you believe, like Born Social certainly do, in out-thinking rather than out-spending, then you are a David.

This company is made of a young team of digital specialists who grew up in the age of social media; as their name suggests they are, quite literally, Born Social.

Services

The group believes for David’s to stand out on social media they need access to specialists. Which is why there are five teams who use their unique combination of talent, knowledge and experience to deliver just that.

What do they do? The services in which they specialise are as follows: Strategy, Media, Creative and Management.

Born Social are a great example of flexibility. They work across every industry, thanks to their wide range of experience and skillset. It’s clear to see they understand and have delivered on the needs of businesses of all shapes and sizes, in any industry.

They pride themselves on being affordable and even promise to give you everything you need at a price you can afford. Our research shows that this promise isn’t one you can expect to be broken, which is why they have such a strong client base and raving reviews.

How They Work

The process starts by creating a strategy to define where we’re going, and how we’re going to get there. They do that by working with you to diagnose your business problem, scoping the landscape to identify your opportunities, and creating a social media strategy to move your business from point A to B.

Their in-house content and production team, along with a collective of photographers, videographers, animators, copywriters and designers who always think social first, work closely with you to make media relevant.

Their Work

Social media is an intimate thing and so discretion should be taken very seriously, so they don’t talk about the majority of the ‘David’s’ they work with. However, they have handful of well-known clients such as BBC, Green Peace and Papa Johns. Not bad, right?

Our Thoughts

Something we were surprised to learn about Born Social is just how scale-able they are. As they are an affordable company that has many services available. However, as business needs grow, they have even more services to help grow with you.

It’s evident that this is an agency that does really, really care.
