Tell us about your business and what it offers

33Seconds is a PR and Social Media Marketing agency that specialises in working with fast-growth companies and forward-thinking brands. We work with a wide range of businesses, both established and startup, including SoundCloud, Amazon, Web Summit, FiftyThree, Interchange, SOTV, Peugeot and Greenpeace, to name a few.

We use PR and social media – spanning everything from strategy development, media and blogger relations and issues management, to community management, content creation and advertising – to build global brands, by increasing awareness, audience and credibility.

Since launching in 2011, we’ve been recognised at a number of awards. We are currently a team of 18 and in the process of hiring.

And where are you based? Have you always been at this location?

We’re based near London Bridge and moved here from Shoreditch around four months ago.

Tell us what you think gives you the competitive edge over your competitors?

There are a number of things that set us apart from our competitors. First and foremost is our experience, as the founding team have worked in both the startup and social media arena for more than 10 years and in the wider communications and marketing sector for 18 years, along with our team of highly-talented comms and social media experts.

We also place great value on client care. Having worked primarily in-house before starting the agency and having managed many agencies during this time, we understand exactly what clients want and need, including honesty and transparency, focus on results and becoming an extension of their team.

We also bring to the table a varied range of clients, from startups through to established brands, so we understand how to meet the needs of companies of different sizes and different stages of growth. Because we work so closely with emerging technology, we’re able to ensure brands are across the latest innovations, while startups have the opportunity to connect with them in return.
