About Be Social Cambridge & The Founder

Hi there, I'm Samuel Douglas, the Founder & Marketer of Be Social Cambridge. Being a Cambridge local for the past 20 years, with a background in Business Development & Marketing, I have always wanted to show my support to the independent business community.

Initially, BSC was meant to be a platform for local businesses and promoters to submit their events, in return having their events promoted throughout the city. However, due to the global pandemic and the lockdowns that came, I changed the website to host an independent business directory, for all shops, freelancers & traders within the Cambridgeshire region. The web directory launch on April 13th 2020, with promotions taking place on Instagram, Facebook, email campaigns and promotional giveaways.

Over the past year, I have seen BSC grow, to having 310+ active businesses on the directory, to two major local business giveaways. 

Fast forward to June 2021, into the second year, I have decided to dedicate more time to BSC. A new website is coming this summer, with Standard & Premium Memberships, competition giveaways and new features.

Follow BSC on it's journey by subscribing to our email campaign and on Instagram.
