Thursday, June 5th, 2014 - Social Media AOK

Up and coming Social Media Agency “ Social Media AOK” got a fantastic boost yesterday, becoming one of the Telstra Business Awards South Australian finalists in the Start-up category.

Another successful example of the IT/Tech start up movement rapidly emerging in South Australia, Social Media AOK’s Principals – Simone and Justin Douglas – may not fit the mould of a typical start-up.

Rapidly heading towards 40, Simone and Justin started their company to allow them the flexibility to spend time with their young family, Hunter 7 and Saxon 4, a decision that has paid off in leaps and bounds.

Spend any time with them and you soon work out that the secret to their success is that they are complete polar opposites and have become natural accountability partners for each other, something which Simone says is a key factor to their success.

“A  big part of our excitement about the award is that it is an endorsement of our very practical and business focussed approach to social media for our clients and makes us glad we have stuck to providing specialist Social Media Services rather than diversifying,” says Justin.

On the question of where the award might take them if they win, Simone says: “On a lot more conference presentations like #SMR14 in Canberra last week, I hope! But seriously we have national and International clients and are the provider of choice for a number of Digital Agencies for whom we white label our services so the next step is offices in Darwin or Melbourne. Any excuse to jump on a plane will do.”

With Social Media use on the rise and new platforms launching every other day, the team at Social Media AOK focus on the practical applications of Social Media for businesses and professionals alike. Their knowhow is sure to see them set for success in the long term.
