Our New Offices, Branding and Lemon Tree!
We are excited to announce that we have officially moved into our first marketing and design studio!
Since starting our business in early 2015, we have quickly built a strong network and valuable client base around the South West, largely thanks to referrals and recommendations from working successfully with our clients. Our rapid growth has enabled us to invest in our business, our services and our capacity in order to take on bigger projects and to continue to grow with our clients.
Our services include:
- Website strategy & design
- Marketing strategy and consulting
- Graphic design
- Online marketing and advertising
- Social media management
- Email Marketing
Below are two messages to celebrate our move from Nick & Jon, founding partners of Squarebird.
Feel free to come in for a coffee any time.
Nick and I have always dreamed of starting our own business together. In 1998 at the age of 7 and 9 respectively, we came up with a fantastic business idea – photocopying Pokemon cards and selling them to kids in school. We quickly found ourselves in the headmaster’s office. Apparently, our new business wasn’t allowed. Nick felt so bad about it that he threw our profits in a bush on the way home!
Fast-forward to early 2015 with both of us working in marketing and website development after University, we decided to try to make a go of it.
Nick first took the plunge, taking the early steps towards building a business. He did an amazing job finding new clients and producing many beautiful websites, and within 6 months he had enough work to convince me to join him and expand our offer. I left my job and we set to work!
Today, a year since I joined full-time, we have now moved into our own offices in Nailsea, just outside of Bristol, with a great network of clients and associates.
Marketing for SMEs
We’ve worked with businesses big and small, from timber merchants and consulting firms, to counsellors and personal trainers – every day is truly different; some terrifying, some stressful, but all unbearably exciting and that’s what I love about it.
So take a look at our website www.squarebird.co.uk and leave us a message, give us a follow on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/squarebirdagency/ , Instagram, Linkedin etc and let us know if you or anyone you know could do with some help with marketing their business!
Finally, none of this would have been possible without the fantastic, unwavering support from our family, friends, Charly and Meg and business coaches (and the MBA crew!) along the way, so thanks to them especially. And the biggest thanks of all to my bigger brother for making this happen!
As some of you may or may not know, Jon and I have been running our own marketing, design and digital agency, Squarebird, for over 18 months offering website design, graphic design, marketing strategy and digital marketing services.
It all kicked off during early 2015 when I, pretty much spontaneously, went into work and handed in my notice. At the time, I felt like I had nothing to lose. So why not? Jon and I put £50 each into a bank account for working capital and we were off!
6 months in and my workload had increased so-much-so that I began to bug Jon into joining me full time… and he did! Now Mum and Dad had twice as much anxiety to deal with! It was at this point that we were also kindly given the opportunity to share an office space with a local company, which cleared the cabin fever after working endless hours from home and holding meetings in Costa.
Credit where credit’s due, Jon hit the ground running, quickly making relationships with businesses big and small all around the South West, finding new business from all over the place.
18 months later and we continue to go from strength-to-strength. We are now working from our very own offices in Nailsea and have done business with more than 70 different companies around the UK! To this day, we still haven’t done any form of advertising and our workload has come purely through word-of-mouth, which I believe says a lot about the quality of work we provide.
We have recently rebranded and we are now taking to social media and our personal networks to help us with our next phase of expansion. Please like and share our page. Furthermore, please pass our details on… recommendations and referrals wont go unnoticed!
Finally, I would like to personally thank our loving family, our EXTREMELY patient partners, friends, clients and business mentors who have helped us along the way. It has been their support that has helped us get to where we are today.
