This week, the South Coast Social team got out of the office, put away the laptops (for once!) and headed to the Hotel du Vin in Poole for a Strategy Day. It was a great chance for us to share ideas, visions and talk through our plans for 2020.

Throughout the day, we were joined by some brilliant guest speakers, all specialists in their respective fields. Vlogger and influencer (and early South Coast Social employee!) Brogan Tate spoke to us about her journey so far, the best way to maintain good agency/blogger relationships and collaborating with brands on sponsored content.

After a delicious lunch, we had a session on Podcasting from Kelly Butler and Andy James of Podcast Labs. They shared some interesting insights about the rising popularity of podcasts and how they can be used in conjunction with social media.

In the afternoon, Mark Masters came in to chat through using emails to build and own an audience, and shared his story of doing so with You Are The Media – a hugely successful weekly email encouraging businesses to own their spaces.

SCS Director, Clare Groombridge said:

“It was so great to get the team out of the office together (in such lovely surroundings!) to collaborate, learn and plan the agency we want to become, as well as spending time with such inspiring speakers! I’m so proud of how we’re evolving and very excited about our future.”

Thanks again to the Hotel du Vin for their hospitality and our refreshments and to all of our speakers for their inspiring sessions throughout the day. Watch this space for some exciting projects and developments from us in 2020!
