Derby and Nottingham Social Media Experts Smash Turnover Record

We’re excited to reveal our turnover has increased by an astonishing 78% in the last 12 months!

We’ve seen every month but one since November 2017 break our month-to-month sales record.


Not only is turnover up, profit has increased by 84% and we have increased our team from six to eight people .

Director Mark Saxby said it had been an amazing year, bolstered by working with companies such as national pet retail chain, Kennelgate, national surveyors Fisher German and Allison Baby, which owns leading nursery brands, Joie, Graco and Nuna.

“2018 has been the year when many businesses have finally started to take social media seriously,” said Mark. “They’ve realised that paying a social media enthusiast a few pounds to run their channels is a waste of time – and that they need to put some serious investment into social media to achieve their business objectives.”

Clients report significant social media-influenced sales

Mark’s wife and fellow director, Kerry, said another breakthrough for Status Social was being able to report on significant sales being generated by our clients – proving our services are worth investing in.

“We’ve had one client tell us they’re generating £18,000 a month thanks to our training, another has made £54,000 in the last six months and a third sold 1200 products when our team created and managed their social media accounts.

“This year has also seen us work with Loughborough University, the international renowned Priory Clinic and asset finance bank, Close Brothers.”

In 2018 we increased the size of our social media management team. In November, experienced marketers Alexandra Burrows and Lee Reavill joined us

We’ve also seen more clients asking for help to use social media to recruit and provide customer service. With one of our clients, we’ve so far found them forty candidates, saving them a fortune on recruitment costs.

As well as financial success, we also won the Derby Telegraph’s Contribution to the Community award, mainly thanks to our work addressing social media problems in schools. The schools work is due to be launched as a separate charity, Positive Social, in early 2019.
