7 years in the business of Social Media
Our top highlights to mark 7 years in Business
Seven years of being in business is quite a thing to achieve. This feels especially so coming out of the pandemic. So, to mark the occasion – here are our top highlights of Ditzy Media’s time as an agency.
Being able to support our community
Being in business gives us a unique opportunity to be a force for good when it comes to engaging with our community – doing our bit to support other business owners, charities and non profits.
We have been privileged to work with so many great SMEs and non-profits over the course of the last 7 years, and hope we have made a positive contribution, to their success using social media to meet their goals.
Supporting some rather awesome events
In our first year, we had the pleasure of supporting of Wyntercon, the first comic-con of its kind held in Eastbourne – and have gone on to partner the event each and every year since.
In 2017, we began working with Carnival Expo and sponsored their 2017 and 2018 events. A chance for us to work in an area we are very passionate about – the business of Carnival!
The pandemic has not stopped our working with events thankfully, and we look forward to supporting the Eastbourne Vintage Festival, Wyntercon VIII and Eastbourne Carnival all taking place later this year.
Winning Awards for our work and customer service
We have been in the top ten most loved businesses in Eastbourne, and best UK PR & Media Agency on thebestof.co.uk/Eastbourne based on customer testimonials for our work and customer service.
In 2017, Mina was awarded Sussex Digital Woman of the year, which was a huge achievement – particularly receiving recognition from the Sussex community.
We are proud to have over 450 5* customer testimonials on The Best of Eastbourne.
Working on projects involving young people
We have supported Eastbourne Youth Radio, and The Big Futures Show for a number of years. In 2021, we worked with Holding Space to contribute towards a booklet helping children with their mental health – providing guidance on tips to manage their wellbeing online.
We also get involved with school visits, Creative Cafes and work experience to try and inspire the next generation to think about tech and digital marketing as a career.
Our fabulous customers
Business is nothing without its customers. We have had the pleasure of working with many sectors over the years including hotels, car dealerships, estate agents, home improvements, trades, food businesses, actors, authors, therapists, accountants, wedding suppliers, IT providers, events, numerous non-profits, and more!
Our training offer has seen us working with EDEAL, 3VA, Mid Sussex Voluntary Action, Business East Sussex, and the FSB East Sussex – delivering presentations, workshops and 1-2-1s. We typically train on average 3 businesses per week so that is over a thousand businesses that we have helped start their journey online.
The pandemic has been a challenge for everyone, but we have loved the passion and resilience our community has shown. We are rightly proud to be part of it and will continue to be supporting it in proving advice, training and social media marketing services, doing what we can to help!
