About Social Media AOK
Social Media AOK was founded in 2012 by Simone Douglas.
It was born out of frustration at seeing business owners being taken advantage of and being held to ransom by marketing agencies who were hemming businesses into lock-in contracts, and baffling them with industry jargon.
Having run a number of businesses prior to Social Media AOK’s inception, Simone understood that businesses don’t have a bottomless pit of money to throw at marketing without seeing results, and if those results aren’t there, then it was simply unethical to keep them locked into a 6-month contract.
And so Social Media AOK was born.
We’re a seriously social business that is flexible and fluid, and we pride ourselves in providing honest solutions for our clients and having fun while we do it.
Our team embodies our values of Ownership, Respect, Positivity, and Drive.
