One of the south coast’s specialist social media agencies; South Coast Social hit a new milestone this week as they officially celebrated their 5th birthday since the company was founded.

From starting out as a business idea crafted from a dining room table during her maternity leave, Managing Director Clare Groombridge has grown the company from their initial launch brands to currently working with over forty global businesses, specialising in social media content creation, community management and paid social campaigns.

The business also employs seven people locally with a Head Office in central Bournemouth, with plans to expand the team further in 2021 to accommodate the requirements of their expanding client base.

Managing Director Clare Groombridge comments:

“I’ve always believed in celebrating our yearly ‘birthday’ (the date the company was registered) to highlight how far we’ve come, especially after the incredibly tough last year we’ve all had due to the pandemic – we were no exception as a business.

 With statistics showing that 20% of companies fail in their first year and around 60% will go bust within their first three years, we’re proud of the strong foundations we’ve built – not only are we one of the leading social media agencies on the south coast, we have an incredible client portfolio of exciting global brands, a sister company in SCS Media and a soon to be launched training department. We also have some very big plans on the horizon for the remainder of 2021!

However, for a long time now SCS has not been about me. I’ve stepped back and let my amazing team take the reins. I’m truly lucky to be surrounded by such a brilliant, talented and creative bunch who make me laugh on a daily basis. Being their boss is an honour and our success and reputation is just as much down to them”
