Get to Know Us

All about where we came from and where we are going

How we started

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.

Who works with us?

We now work with clients nationwide, who appreciate the quality of our service.

Our partnerships with charities, groups, business groups and event organisers are often beneficial to our customers.

What are we best at?

Square Cactus has a proven track record in creating and managing websites for clients. Our service is cost effective and dedicated.


We have boosted real and targeted followings for businesses. We interact and create loyalty in simple proven ways. Likes and followers are not enough. Your website and social media presence needs to be followed and used by your potential and existing customers. We love helping companies to acquire the skills they need to succeed.


We are so different to a regular PR agency, we think you will enjoy the difference. A practical hard working team that becomes dedicated to the success of your business.

Nobody is perfect!
