Whether you’re a prospective client, new employee or curious intern looking for your next gig - we thought it was a good idea to let the world know about the values we follow here at Spin, a leading social media agency in the UK. That’s right, we’re letting you in, take a look, let’s get personal! ;)
I know what you may be thinking, who cares about some superficial, meaningless quotes that are probably stuck up on the walls to be ignored as people go past. Well, Spin has gone through some significant growth and changes in the kind of work we do. Along with this and a hell of a lot of new hires, we internally decided to focus our thoughts and energy in a new and exciting way. Hence the Spin Values were born - a framework to map out our recipe for greatness and make sure that we are all on the same page. And to make sure you’re on the same page too, we thought we’d share them with you.
And yes, we made them awesomely creative quotes and images too, because we’re creative and why the hell not.
Always be Curious
Curious minds are people who explore and discover. The social media industry is continuously evolving and it seems that Instagram brings out a new feature every week. We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve with all the latest digital trends and social media news. We do the legwork as a company so that our clients don’t have to. Curiosity is in the way that someone sees the world. It encompasses problem-solving, being brave in the unknown, seeking improvement and generally having your eyes open to any opportunity. Being curious is not only something we look for in our people, but also in the clients we want to work with. We strive to work for cutting edge brands that go against the crowd and look to break the mold.
Take pride in the work you produce
Simple but so often forgotten about. We love what we do and we do it f*cking well.** This is mainly because we would never put our name next to something unless we loved it. We work hard and bring our A-game to each brand feed, social campaign or paid strategy we do.
Actions speak louder than words
Again, it does what it says on the tin but we know that a lot of agencies have a bad rep for this so we thought it was a good idea to make something clear: if we say we can do something, we’ll get it done. We like to prove our worth with clear results and accurate KPI’s, gaining people’s trust and proving that we do our best with everything we do. Basically, we like to think of ourselves as honest, reliable and proactive - making us stand out from the crowd. Our monthly-rolling contract and 30 day notice periods are a testament to this.
Those who think they can and those who think they can’t are usually right.
An interesting one, a mindset that some people might associate with ‘fake it till you make it’ or arrogance, but this couldn’t be more wrong for Spin. This one’s more about having the right can-do attitude when it comes to approaching an issue. We'll always find the way of getting something done because most problems have a solution out there somewhere - and it's our job to find it!
See it, Say it, Fix it!
When we see a problem, we don’t simply walk on by or pass blame - we sort it. Problems are everywhere, mistakes happen all the time and nobody is perfect - but taking responsibility is something that is optional. We take responsibility for our work and we will always show initiative in sorting the problems as we see them - we’ll learn from them and ensure that we don’t encounter these same issues again.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
Efficiency is key. We never cut corners but we do believe in putting our efforts where they are most valuable, spending less time on tedious tasks and more time on coming up with your next brilliant campaign or optimizing your ads to improve that ROAS. We have a team constantly looking at new technology, we are agile and we are always trying to stay ahead of the game on every front. We use our brains to make intelligent decisions to minimise extra tasks and steps in order to do things more efficiently and quickly.
