Apple Music win for Social Chain

Manchester social media marketing agency Social Chain is celebrating a record-breaking summer with a contract win for Apple Music, two awards, a rebrand and the opening of a New York office.

Last week, Social Chain scooped its second major award winning the prestigious Large Agency of the Year at the UK Agency Awards in London. In June the agency also picked up the Best Newcomer of the Year at the Manchester Business Awards.

The award follows high profile client wins with Apple Music, Boohoo, GiffGaff and L’Oreal which has resulted in a massive recruitment drive, and the team doubling in size.

After securing £3m investment from German company Glow Media following the launch of a Berlin office in June, the firm launched its New York office in August with plans to expand.

Steve Bartlett, managing director of Social Chain – and speaker at this year’s MADE Festival - says: “We are all so proud to win Large Agency of the Year at the UK Agency Awards, we have had an extremely busy year so far and it is amazing to see everything come together. The award is a testament to the unrelenting hard work of the team and the continuing passion and drive we have towards our work.

“We hope our rebrand will really illustrate just how far we have come and who we are today; a global agency that continues to push boundaries with our out-of-the-box campaigns.

“As proof of this we have just signed a contract with Apple Music to deliver a top secret social media campaign, so watch this space."
