CubeSocial is an award winning Social CRM and services business. This is our story...
In late 2009 Linda Cheung was about to leave Morgan Stanley to start her own business. At the time Linda had less than a dozen connections in LinkedIn and had never used Facebook or Twitter. Today, she's CEO of CubeSocial – an award winning software development and consultancy company all about winning business through social media.
How it came to be...
We didn't want to assume what businesses wanted, so Linda and co-founder Mark Bower went out and asked. The overwhelming answer was: new ways to win new business.
At the same time, Linda was experimenting with social media and achieving surprising results. We saw how traditional best practices still applied online and how we were able to reach a much larger yet more targeted audience. This realisation formed the basis for CubeSocial.
Twelve months on...
CubeSocial has been named as one of the Top 20 Start Ups of 2011 by Startups, selected as a winner in the Local Business Accelerator Awards, and was chosen as a finalist in the 2012 Cloud Computing World Series Awards in the Best Social CRM category.
In addition we now provide social media consulting services so that more people can benefit from all the things we've learned about winning business through social media.
