Birmingham based social media marketing agency, Explode, is sending shockwaves through the city with its ever-expanding team of experts and its impressive catalogue of clients. The agency has doubled in size in the last 12 months and now hopes to make an even bigger impact in the next 18 months; with ambitions of becoming the biggest social media agency in the region.
Made up of six account managers and six budding interns, the ESM team brings a combined 30 years’ worth of experience to the table, offering clients agility, creativity, and expertise. The team prides itself on being young and dynamic with all employees under the age of 30 and each with their own personal passion in different areas of digital media production.
Founder and Director of ESM, Lindi Mngaza has vast experience in the role of Director in her other business ventures LM One Group, as well as The Allied group of Businesses. Lindi’s passion for business began at a young age and only grew after her time as a candidate on BBC One’s hit entrepreneurial show, The Apprentice.
Speaking on the evolution of the company, Lindi Mngaza commented:
“I am incredibly proud of the steps we have taken as a new agency over the past three years. We saw an incredible 80% increase of turnover in 2019 and I have high hopes of building on these successes in the coming year. Our team has nearly doubled since we first started up and only continues to grow to this day. With the right ambition and motivation, I hope that we will be the largest social media agency in Birmingham… watch this space!”
With Lindi at the helm, the agency’s collection of clients has grown to 15 this year, covering an array of industries: from pharmaceuticals; all the way through to premium food and beverage brands.
Whilst ESM can be found in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the reach of the agency is national, with household names across the country knocking at Explode Social Media’s door for targeted help online. Big Tom – part of James White Drinks – and Travel Planners are just a few of the high-profile clients that ESM work with.
“As a home-grown agency that loves its Birmingham roots, we are tremendously proud to be amongst the successful start-up SMEs that are currently leading the way in the Midlands. Birmingham is a great place to do business, with a community of companies that builds each other up and celebrates each other’s wins.
“Whilst we’re still the new kid on the block in many ways, we feel we’ve already started to prove ourselves. We’re looking forward to the rest of 2020 and the successes it brings, and are setting our sights on making the next three years just as great as the first,” concluded Lindi.
