“Great ambition and growth in their customer base.”
“They give lots of support for community and charity causes.”
We are very passionate about helping and giving back to the local community here at Shoo. We have worked with various community organisations to help them either get started in their business by offering them offer space in our shop window yes, that’s correct we have a shop window here in Ben Rhydding, Ilkley.
We are on the high street quite unusual for a social media agency! As our work involves us being online instead branding it all up in Shoo imagery we have given this space back to our local community. How amazing is that and it is all free for them to visually merchandise their products from local artists, photographers, to local pre-school groups in Ilkley and Ben Rhydding this is a great opportunity for everyone with commuters travelling to Leeds and Bradford on the train we have great footfall passed our window or should I say our window of opportunity. If you’re interested in taking the window please get in touch with team Shoo and we would like it for you to have an opportunity in our window.
We have worked on various projects around the town of Ilkley such as volunteering for the Ilkley Business Forum, helping Ilkley Arts with their social media marketing and running various projects to support shop local campaigns in the town.
Tales from behind the counter
Our biggest project has to be helping locally based Ilkley based photographer Alan Carmichael to promote his project Tales from Behind The Counter.
“This great project has been designed to engage the local residential community of Ilkley and give something back, what better way of doing this than putting together a visual and digital story-board, showcasing the exceptional local independent businesses of Ilkley,” Alan Carmichael, Capricorn Photography.
The storyboard will tell the tales of the owner behind the counter. Telling the story of why and how they got into business. “Not only will we create an exhibition of the local independent shop but we will also promote the storyboard across social media as well to reach those that cannot get to Ilkley,” Rachel Hatfield, Shoo Social Media.
Our charity work includes a major landmark fashion event that is held in Bradford, Yorkshire at The Midland Hotel. Each year we have a nominated charity that is local to where our offices are based in Yorkshire. In 2016 we raised money for for One in A Million, Bradford. For the 3rd year running we will be supporting Bradford-based charity, One in A Million. The charity itself supports disadvantaged children and young people in the Bradford with access to sports and arts programmes in their neighbourhood.
