As the end of September draws in, we’re feeling excited for Autumn at the HQ. Things are busier than ever and the team have been well and truly smashing it (as always!).
September’s featured websites
This month, we were lucky enough to add the talented trio of Corin, Matt and Natasha to our clan. Matt and Corin join our Development teams and Natasha joins our Account Management team. They’ve all hit the ground running with Natasha diving straight into client meetings and Corin & Matt dev-ing like there’s no tomorrow, welcome to the family guys!
To add to this, our lovely new Project Co-ordinator Ruth started on Thursday but we thought we’d give her a day or two to settle in before pouncing for a photo.
September saw us launch our first ever Influencer Marketing event. While this isn’t a service we offer, as your digital best friend, it’s our job to keep our clients abreast of any emerging trends and Influencer Marketing has been noted as growing even faster than Digital Ads by Forbes, so it’s safe to say, it’s not going anywhere!
Our speakers included The Cardiff Cwtch on working with brands, Fritz Fryer or the business logistics and Purewal & Partners on all things legal who all spoke brilliantly.
Of course it wouldn’t be an event without food or drinks so naturally, we opted for a doughnut wall and beers… cheers!
On the subject of events, we’re also hosting the DMA’s Creative Club in October. If you’d like to hear from our Head of Design, Matt Gadd and the Wales Millenium Centre’s Head of Brand and Digital, Beth Meade on all things branding, tickets can be purchased here.
We’re absolutely delighted to be adding our FOURTH certified Kentico Marketer to the team! Graduate Digital Marketer, Fabrizio smashed his exam last week adding to our portfolio of Kentico expertise.
With in-depth knowledge of Kentico Marketing, we can now target our client’s audiences more specifically and generate unparalleled results for their business… and we’ve got the certificates to prove it!
Our 15 charities for 15 years is still in full force and the Great Spindogs Bakeoff is now in the heated stage of the final… we’ve been relentless in our cake scoffing and the winner is soon to be crowned!
Cardiff Bay 10 & 2K
We stuck to our promise and sent some of the gang off to run the Cardiff Bay 10 & 2K in order to raise money for Kidney Wales a HUGE well done to everyone who ran, we’re super proud of you!
Stand Up To Cancer Day
Those of us who own anything orange (though there were some slightly questionable shades…) wore the signature colour of Myleoma UK on Stand Up To Cancer day and collected a few more pennies for the charity pot!
In line with all the “back to school” campaigns, we seized the day and used “back to work” as a brilliant opportunity to launch our Spindogs Academy offering 10% off all training courses booked in September using code ACADEMY at the checkout.
With merch, discounts and pencil cases, what on earth is not to like?! If you’d like to see what training we offer head to our Training Page.
We’ve been busy bees on the blogging front this month, from our trip to the Facebook Café to an acronym guide to get you through the basics of digital, we’ve got it covered!
