Our founder Alison qualified as a journalist and quickly found a passion for Twitter and online blogging. In 2009, she took her first social media role at a digital marketing agency in London’s Soho. As the social media industry was emerging in London, Alison was consulting clients including Tesco, Plan UK and Pringles.

They discussed the challenges and opportunities that social media presented, and wanted to help business owners understand the power of social media marketing. Neither Alison nor Richard can speak Spanish, but Avocado Social was born.
Since setting up the business we have become Facebook Certified Digital Marketing Associates. We have worked with Facebook and Instagram on a number of campaigns to spread awareness and knowledge about their products.
