Viral Effect leads the way 

Social marketing agency, Viral Effect, has reported a record turnover this week with the company also celebrating three months at the top of the Global Food Index. 

Based in Boho Four, the agency works with clients such as Dominos Pizza’s national social media channels. The work the company has been doing has led to them placing third in Twitter’s Customer service Index, ahead of the likes of Microsoft. 

Earlier this year, Managing Director James Pennington employed new staff, including a “Meme and Gif Manager” to help to track trends and get clients talking to their customers. 

Congratulations to the team, representing Teesside businesses! 


Buy Local Tees Valley 

The Tees Valley Combined Authority has this week launched its Buy Local Tees Valley platform. 

The website hosts businesses that are still operating to connect local people to goods and services they may need during this unprecedented time. 

Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen, said: “Small and medium-sized firms are the lifeblood of our economy and lots of business owners and self-employed people are continuing to soldier on despite uncertainty at this difficult time. 

“It’s easy for businesses to sign up and get listed, and I’d urge as many companies as possible to get registered and make the most of the platform.”
