2019 has been a huge success for Mosaic Digital Media and we are so proud of the achievements we have made! It’s been a very busy year and it’s definitely been a team effort to get us up to this point, so we decided it was only fair that each of us gets involved doing a write up of 2019 and give a sneak peek of what’s to come in 2020!
So without further ado. keep reading to find out what Mosaic Digital Media got up to this year and what we have planned for next year, over to you #TeamMo…
Conor On Team Achievements…
Team Player of the Month:
In 2019 we introduced ‘Team Player Of The Month’, where management decided who went above and beyond in the business. The decision was unanimous!
I was honoured to be awarded the first ‘Team Player Of The Month’, take a look: https://www.instagram.com/p/B6Irsn1BjtA/
Here’s to seeing who January’s ‘Team Player Of The Month’ will be!
Digital Team of the Year Nomination:
Northern Dev Awards (https://northerndevawards.co.uk/) nominated us for the Digital Team of the Year. This was a proud time in the office, and we look forward to the results in 2020!
Mosaic did Movember:
In November of 2019, we decided to take part in Movember so as a team we shaved our faces on the first day and then grew a moustache throughout the month as well as raising money for the campaign. We aimed to raise £200 but as a total, we made £309! Take a look here: https://www.justgiving.com/team/MosaicDigitalMedia
Stacey on BNI Mere…
BNI Mere meet every Thursday morning at the more social time of 10:30am. I have personally found the weekly meetings enjoyable and the members to be incredibly supportive. It’s amazing to have a whole room full of people who are happy to support each other by referring to businesses and inviting along new visitors to meet.
For example, Mark who is a Property Developer at Copperleaf is looking for the chapter to engage with tradesmen and architects to visit as a guest, therefore actively trying to encourage the growth of BNI and finding the right people.
BNI isn’t for everyone – I have heard that people find it a little repetitive and time-consuming but I find that BNI, and in fact any networking event, is what you make of it! By listening, being specific and connecting with the right people I have seen huge benefits in a short period of time. As well as BNI I have been involved with Seed Networking and real5 Northwich which has helped us expand our brand awareness and presence in Cheshire.
I look forward to being part of the ‘Mere’ family and making a difference in 2020.
James on New Team Players…
In 2019, the team here at Mosaic continued to grow, increasing our versatility with new skillsets and experience. Back in April, Thom joined the team part-time to help deliver some of our social campaigns.
Thom was a great fit for the team and was offered a full-time position in July as junior Digital Marketing Executive, where he has since begun working closely with our Account Manager, Negin and our Head of SEO, Conor Clarke.
In April, I joined Mosaic Digital Media as a junior Web Developer, becoming the third member of the development team headed by Liam.
Whilst undertaking smaller projects and learning from the other members of the development team, I’ve been able to learn new skills and have recently begun to undertake more visual design work.
Last but not least, our most recent recruit has been Janet Worrall who has joined team Mosaic as an Office Administrator. She has been helping out with the everyday running of Mosaic, here are a few words from Janet…
“Thrown in at the deep end it was either sink or swim! I am happy to say that I am still swimming especially ending my first week with the Christmas Party. I have felt very welcome and feel I have become part of the furniture, we have even done some serious office rearranging to ‘fit’ me in. I am, looking forward to the New Year and to my new career at Mosaic.”
Liam On New Clients…
We have helped several new clients to meet there digital and marketing aims this year.
Earlier in the year, we help Grant Hodnett Nutrition (GHN) to rebuild their eCommerce store on Shopify. Throughout the year, we have worked with Grant to help GHN market their redesigned store and made amendments to the site to drive up conversion and user engagement.
We also helped 1895 Sports to build a new eCommerce store to advertise and sell their customised and branded sportswear. This was built from the ground up in WordPress using WooCommerce along with a bespoke design to match there branding, purpose and goals.
Most recently, we are working with Sam and Charlotte Fox to help promote the Warrington Buyers Club app which gives members access to various discounts throughout Warrington. Our Social Media and Marketing strategy has included creating unique & engaging imagery for both Social Media, print and email, helping to advertise their new app along with the incentivises for signing up, and delivering their #12DaysOfChristmas campaign. There are loads of prizes up for grabs so make sure you check out their Facebook and Instagram account for updates!
We have also been working with NW employers to build their new website to better advertise who they are along with the services they provide and the events they run. We are in the final stages of building their new site and hope to launch this for them in the New Year.
Negin on real5 Networking (Warrington & Northwich)…
2019 saw team Mosaic Digital Media joining the real5 Warrington group. I’ve had the privilege of representing Mosaic in the Warrington group for Web Design, Social Media Management and SEO marketing and I’ve loved every second of it! It was great to walk in and see a mixture of both familiar and brand new faces including Angela from Positive Lifestyle Rewards, Jen from The Modern World and Dave from Central Self Drive!
I’ve also had some amazing 121’s with the members of the group including Andy from Quickline Couriers, Helen from Easy Tots and Ellen from Spire HR. Looking forward to more of the same in the New Year.
This year we also launched real5 Networking in Northwich, with the group being headed up by our very own Managing Director, Richard Wilding and also our Head of Operations Stacey Whitney who both feel strongly about the launch because of their connections with the town.
We kick-started the launch of the Northwich group at Barons Quay Social on November 7th which was a roaring success and set the tone for the Northwich group! We were also delighted to make it into the Northwich Guardian.
Let’s hope 2020 brings more of the same success for real5 Northwich – the next real5 Networking Northwich lunch-time event is going to be held at The Hart Of Hartford on the 14th of January 2020, 12-2pm. Make sure you get a head start for January and book your place here: https://real5-networking-northwich.eventbrite.co.uk
Nathan on Charity Work…
Throughout 2019 we have, like in previous years, worked in supporting local charities. Every year we work with charities and help them get online or promote their cause with our digital expertise as a way of giving back to the community.
In 2018 we worked with Suicide Prevention Charity, Papyrus, building their website and providing them with web support. This year we have worked with the Warrington Wolves Foundation, the charity branch of Warrington Wolves Rugby League Club, who specialises in changing lives through sport. We’re currently in the process of revamping the website to help with the user-journey and look forward to these changes being made visible in 2020!
That’s not all the charitable work we have done though! A few months back we were approached by Mid-Cheshire Mind, a charity that focuses on mental health. We provided them with a website holding page and are working on building them a new website. The design has recently been signed off which we are excited about as we can get started with the build next year.
Finally, it wouldn’t be right if we just looked over the latest charitable cause we completed, our Reverse Christmas Calendar. For this event we decided for each of the 12 days we would accomplish a charitable cause, this ranged from donating food for Warrington Food Bank through to handing out mince pies to local businesses, see here: https://mosaicdigitalmedia.co.uk/reverse-advent-calendar-day-2/. You can see a full round-up of each of the 12 days on Our Community page.
Thom On What’s To Come In 2020!
What a 2019 we’ve had and what a 2020 we’ve got ahead of us…
First up, we recently launched our ‘#2020in2020’ campaign which is all about advising businesses to have clear 20/20 vision on their 2020 digital marketing campaigns to help achieve the best results next year.
By encouraging businesses to see the bigger picture we are hoping that businesses will slow-down on just buying a website and instead consider investing in a digital marketing strategy…
We have adapted the way we work and tend to work on a monthly basis, using your budget to come up with a digital marketing strategy that will best utilise our expertise including SEO, Social Media and Web Design.
Our dream team, office girl power duo of Negin and Stacey aka #Nacey, also have an exciting venture they’ll be undertaking in Warrington as ‘Digital Doctors’. That’s all we’re saying for now, watch this space!
We’ll also be donning our best Wacky Races-esque costumes for Northwich Krazy Races 2020 – with the help of Richard ‘Dastardly’ Wilding, team ‘Mean Mo-chine’ are determined to win and blow the rest of the competition out of the water. Fighting talk indeed!
Finally from all of us at Team Mo, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing some familiar and new faces in 2020.
Phew! That’s it for our 2019 review with a sneak peek of what we have stored for next year. We are back from our Christmas holidays on Thursday the 2nd of January where you can call us on 01925 563960 to start planning your digital journey!
