Square Cactus was originally Blackburn Life Media and grew from sister site Blackburn Life.
Blackburn Life is one of the largest independent news sites for East Lancashire with the largest social media following in the area for a specific Blackburn news site. Most of our work now comes through client referrals.

Working with Square Cactus has been a great experience for us. We have seen a noticeable growth in social media engagement and return on investment from that activity, as well as a much improved experience for our customers. With Square Cactus managing multiple social media channels and accounts we now have reassurance customer engagement is effective and prompt and that any service related issues are escalated to us rapidly to deal with which help operational staff focus on their day jobs. As a company they are friendly and easy to work with but offer great expert advice and insight at the same time. I have personally recommended their services to several colleagues because of how effective working together has been for us, which is something I don’t do too often!
Square Cactus have worked alongside us to develop and implement a social media strategy to support the marketing of Blackburn Cathedral Quarter.
