Joseph Connelly, Managing Director of Ashwood Design Associates wanted to refine the companies image and needed an extra hand to create consistency and organisation. This case study briefly displays the work I produced for the company in early 2022. Socials Tailored to reach a younger audience When Joe took ownership of Ashwood Designs, it was crucial to make his mark and showcase the progress the business was making. To achieve this, we developed a comprehensive social media strategy and launch to coincide with the unveiling of the new logo. I posted once a week, creating a consistent and fresh brand image across Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. For Instagram, we created engaging image and short-form video content, tailored to reach a younger and more diverse audience. Joe’s goal was to expand the business’s reach and connect with potential customers in a more personal and meaningful way.

Willan Living

Social Managment Willan Living Willan Living, a local housing development company based in Penrith, approached me after seeing the work I’d done for other clients in Cumbria. They wanted me to come and shine new light on their social media content—most importantly increasing engagement rates and impressions. The goal was to create a content bank to provide Willan Living the tools to promote their business in a new and modern way. Social Management Services The strategy In order to boost their presence on Instagram, we implemented a strategy that would engage the audience by adding reel content to their profile and creating a bank of templates for posting stories. Many content creators, influencers and brands have found that they earn more views and higher engagement rates when they post Reels. Instagram Reels provide brands with an opportunity to demonstrate who they are in a fun, digestible way. Since the short-video format debuted in 2020, brands and creators have leveraged it to radically boost presence on social media. Reels expanded reels to Facebook in the Spring of this year allowing you to increase your reach and audience on the Facebook platform too. It was vital for us to use reels for Willan living, they are a great way to showcase your brand’s personality, connect with your audience and expand your brand awareness. The look Willan Living has already established an exceptional brand identity, complete with clear and concise brand guidelines. To maintain consistency, I utilised their three main colours to design sleek story templates and ensure that all reels aligned with their brand and luxury aesthetic. By adhering to their branding guidelines, we were able to enhance their overall digital presence and maintain a cohesive image across all content. The result Since incorporating more reel content and increasing their story posts, Willan Living has experienced a significant uptick in interactions. Their posts now reach twice as many people as before, and their engagement rates have surpassed all previous records. I am thrilled to continue working with Willan Living to further enhance their Instagram growth through my Content Bank plan.

Midtown Milkhouse is a fresh milk vending machine that offers a range of local produce including milk, cheese, meat and baked goods. The family prides itself in diversifying the traditional dairy farm model to create an option for zero-mile food production. The business’s success over the last two years is a testament to the values of this farm and the people who run it. Through digital marketing, it has reached a huge audience of 2.8 million views on the #midtownmilkhouse on Tik Tok and has a following of over 11,000 across multiple social media channels.

We kept our audience engaged with content that included competitions and short-form videos. I was able to share the brand’s story with a huge audience over social media, which resulted in them gaining massive amounts of new customers.
