agency vlog

MOVING OFFICE, MOVING ON UP!

In today’s vlog, we’re moving office. We’re packing up our base, which we’ve been in since we started the company almost one year ago. We’re expanding the company and moving the office to Farringdon, it was just impractical to stay where we are now. We started out in this place, we’ve grown, learnt and experienced a hell of a lot since the first time we moved in. 

We have many memories, all the late nights, the working weekends and the projects we have won and lost in this place. It’s a great time for reflection and seeing where we’ve come from and how far we still have to go!

Let’s see where we are this time next year. We’re excited to continue to share the journey at all levels, the good, the bad and the ugly.

WHY DO WE VLOG?!

Why do we vlog? Why are you vlogging? These are questions we always get asked.

We’re a marketing agency, we’re building a company and we’re on an entrepreneurial journey…. but mostly, we’re doing it be practitioners. To practice what we preach and put our money where our mouth is. To really understand social media, you need to be amongst it and living it daily. How can we stand in front of some of the biggest brands in the world but not understand what we are talking about?

Today’s vlog we are in London, casting for a video that we are creating for one of the major gaming companies globally. It’s a new client, a new opportunity and the potential to show to the brand that what we do works and delivers real results. Tass and Majid head to the casting, lead by our Director Craig, to meet the potential cast who will be starring in the video.

The difficulty with creating content for social, is that it needs to be fit for platform, it needs to be raw, easily consumable and exciting. Let’s see if we can pull it off ;)

WORKING WITH PEOPLE YOU LOVE

Working with people you love is one of the most important factors when starting a business. These are people you’ll spend most of your time with, so why would you want to surround yourself with and build a business with people you don’t get on with and don’t like?! Don’t think about the money and the rewards, think about your life and doing what makes you happy. If you start a business just for the money, you’re in the wrong game and you’ll fail.

We aso talk about selling and marketing on social media being the most effective channel to get products in front of audiences at the right time, in the right market and in the right way. It’s the final part of the vlogs with Julius Dein and he’s about to pull the most epic prank on his grandma. We take you behind the scenes of the final preparation, the prank itself and then meeting his grandma who we have a really interesting chat with.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!

As Tass and Nick’s epic three week worldwide journey draws to a close, their biggest challenge is still ahead. This is the day of the product launch event, with all the influencers in Barcelona and anything can happen.

The influencers need to be briefed on their activities for the day and all the while the client is still waiting for the Unbox Therapy’s video to review before it’s immediate release.

With difficult time constraints and a continually changing schedule, the pair must persevere in order to complete the job.

THE PROBLEMS WITH RECRUITMENT IN BUSINESS

After missing the bullet train the previous night, we had to get to the station the next morning early, to get the train to Beijing. Once we arrive in Beijing, we have a number of important meetings with clients about upcoming projects and campaigns. While on the way to the hotel, we talk about one of the big problems we are facing as a business currently, recruitment. We're looking for people with experience, knowledge and ability, those who can come on board add value and drive the company forward.

With experience, people have habits, habits that are hard to break. Do they believe in our way of thinking or are they set in their own ways? Do they live and breathe social media or is it all about TV and Banner Advertising being best / most effective way to connect with an audience. 

When running any business, recruiting the right people is hard. It's hard to find the person in your heart fits the company, that you can trust to get the job done. We hope this was some valuable insight into what we are dealing with at the moment.

 

THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

In today's vlog, we talk about the revolution of agency business from broadcast era and into the social era whilst flying from Shenzhen to Shanghai in China. Brands are spending too much money on traditional advertising (TV, Billboards etc) and not enough on social media. Where are people spending their time and giving their attention to in the modern day, why aren’t more brands shifting their marketing spend? By now, we are sure you all know our views and thoughts on the matter ;) !

While in Shanghai, Nick meets up with some local skateboarders for a session and captures some of the cities landscape with a drone. The reason we are in Shanghai is to catch the bullet train to Beijing, unfortunately – our timings let us down and we miss the train, which means we must spend another night in Shanghai. Fingers crossed we can make the next one in the morning otherwise we’ll miss our meetings!

 

ADVERTISING NEEDS TO CHANGE

 

Advertising is dead, it's failing and needs to change. In this episode, we talk about the advertising industry going through some big changes and what brands can do to win. In the big shift from the broadcast to the audience era the conventional advertising model no longer works. In many aspects “advertising” is broken but helping brands navigate through the terrain isn’t always easy. 

Again we document it all in an effort to share with you what it’s like to be on the ground with our clients, mediating difficult situations on the entrepreneurial journey. 

We’re still in Paris, with beautiful Xenia Tchoumitcheva for a second day of shooting for one of our biggest clients; a Chinese technology company!

We take you through another action packed day on the heels of one of the world’s most renowned digital fashionistas and despite a couple of stressful moments we try to have fun and make time for a few rooftop backflips amidst a beautiful photoshoot! 

You get to experience what it’s like on the front lines of running a social agency. 

We are releasing vlogs every Tuesday and Thursday from here on out, so subscribe to our channel to be the first to be notified about the next episode. Don’t forget to like and most importantly comment, share your thoughts and get involved in the journey we are on.
