About now social

Recognising social media marketing isn't the silver bullet it was hyped up to be, now social specialises in integrated digital content marketing support for forward-thinking small to medium businesses and entrepreneurs in Auckland and Northland.

Services are based on three pillars of content, campaign or strategy activities, designed to develop social brands that will help business soar.

Instead of operating as a fully-fledged social media agency, now social is a consultancy based on innovation and collaboration. We believe now is time for a new model of marketing and our aim is to shake up outdated approaches to project management with fresh, integrated ideas.

Packaged to meet the unique needs of clients – both contract and monthly plans are designed to deliver the best solution for the resource at hand.

Now Social is dedicated to helping businesses keep up with the play, find direction and drive results with fresh take on digital marketing.

We're honest, we're local and we know our stuff. If we don't we'll work closely with your partners or our network of specialists to deliver the goods – preferably someone living locally!
