Did you hear that? That was the sound of 2018 whooshing by! Some of us still haven’t taken down our Christmas tree. Jokes aside, it’s been an awesome year for us. Enjoying steady growth within our team and portfolio, here are some of our favorite highlights of the 2018.
1- We moved into a new office
#teamSOCIATE went through a growth spurt in 2017, and a bigger team calls for a bigger office! Leveling up from our business center abode, we’ve gone independent and are now located in our own open-plan office!
SOCIATE’s headquarters is a Pinterest board sprung to life – we’ve got a chill zone, a kiddie corner, and an exercise ball (that rarely gets used but was a cool idea at one point).
SOCIATE’s new address is office 401 in Mazaya Business Avenue BB2.
2 – We welcomed two new members to our team
#teamSOCIATE has come a long way from working out of coffee shops. Our team’s most recent members are Reena Grewal, our Marketing Assistant and Savvy Content Creator and Stephanie Dafeta, our PR intern.
3 – We ran our first marketing campaign of 2018
Curious about those mysterious orange envelopes floating around on our social media? Drum roll, please. That’s our first marketing campaign of the year, inspired by one of the richest men in the world, Bill Gates! The Microsoft mogul famously said, “If I was down to my last dollar, I would spend it on PR”. Spinning off this concept, our favorite brands and networking peers received an orange envelope with a United States of SOCIATE dollar inside. The decision of how to spend it is theirs…
4 – We won our first-ever semi-government client
2018 has seen our portfolio get bigger as we welcome our first semi-government client. SOCIATE now offers PR support to Smartworld, a joint venture between Etisalat and Dubai South.
5 – We launched our intern program
Following in the footsteps of Microsoft and Google, SOCIATE officially launched its innovative intern program this year. SOCIATE gives new recruits a taste of the riveting and raw side of agency life. Interns will enjoy a hands-on experience dealing with the cogwheels of the communication industry – proposal development, social media, event planning, media relations, press release writing, and much more.
6 – We developed our marketing department
Sabrina Moutarde, our Marketing Director and Digital Enthusiast has been joined by Reena Grewal, Marketing Assistant and Savvy Content Creator. The duo spearheads SOCIATE’s marketing, social media, digital marketing, and SEO endeavors.
