5 Manchester Businesses with Great Social Media

Social media management for Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Instagram.

Manchester has been championed by many as the digital capital of the UK, and is becoming a digital superpower on a global scale. Social media especially has become an essential tool for businesses of all sizes, allowing them to interact with potential and existing customers, raise brand awareness and humanise their brand.

We’ve found five Manchester businesses who have great social media pages. In this article we will take a look at why their social media is so effective, and how it is benefitting their business. Let’s go!

1. Solita Restaurants

Everyone loves burgers, and Manchester’s burger scene is a cut above of the rest. Solita are right up there with the frontrunners for best bun, and their social channels are just as good as their eats. Solita’s flagship Northern Quarter branch has a brilliant Facebook, with enticing content that encourages user interaction. With 45k likes, 33k check-ins and almost 1000 five-star reviews, it’s clear the burger giant is not just king of the kitchen.

2. Junkyard Golf MCR

Manchester’s Junkyard Golf have grown from strength to strength, and recently relocated to their third premises, which is their largest to date. Their Facebook generates great engagement, with the announcement of their move receiving almost 1,000 reactions and 1,500 comments. With a great mix of media and a generous splash of neon, their content is highly shareable and absolutely made for social.

3. Oklahoma

Cute indie gift shop Oklahoma is a Northern Quarter veteran, and delights its customers with its quirky products. Their social channels perfectly reflect their weird and wonderful retail space, with close-up shop of products and in-store shots displaying their kitch trinkets. Their Instagram is particularly successful, boasting a follower count of 11.7k. These guys know how to take great photos – we could browse their colourful snaps all day!

4. Manchester Water Taxis

Manchester’s most unique mode of travel has a suitably distinctive social presence, with their iconic yellow branding easy to spot across the three main platforms. Picturesque photos of Manchester’s waterways intersperse branded images and contests, generating engagement and – undeniably – commuter envy! Their Twitter is leading the way in terms of follower count, most likely due to the amount of retweets granted to other Manchester attractions. Great job guys!

5. Fig & Sparrow

Fig & Sparrow on Oldham Street is an independent design shop and coffee bar, and as you’d expect their food translates perfectly onto the world of social media. One look at their Instagram is enough to spark off that coffee craving, and their engagement levels are enough to incite jealousy in any social media manager. Is it possible to have brunch without taking a picture for Instagram? We don’t think so. With almost 4,000 check-ins on Facebook too, Fig & Sparrow are setting the social scene alight.
