The SoBeard Team
In a previous life Rick was a communications engineer for broadcast television taking him all over the world, from Radio 1s Big Weekend in London to the X Games in Munich & Barcelona. After a six-year stint Rick decided a change from living in a suitcase (not literally) might be refreshing so began evolving his skills.
From there he began creating video & then later aerial imagery after completing his UAV pilots licence with the Civil Aviation Authority, working with both the BBC & Channel 4 over a 2-year period.
After watching so many clients create great content for it not to be given the exposure it deserves, he saw a gap in the market for clients needing support on delivering innovative content & So Beard Ltd was born!
Four years on & he is now orchestrating a team of specialists in their given field, overseeing all operations of the company supporting clients on every step of their account growth journey.
Rick enjoys testing new industry features cherry-picking the most innovative & creative tools to leverage for So Beard’s client base.

How we work
Each client is managed within our management suite, with each business having their own ad account within the Facebook business manager, meaning their profiles are monitored & managed daily to ensure any comments, direct messages & engagements are actioned accordingly – guaranteeing users are responded to within a realistic time frame.
We believe there is so much jargon, confusion and ambiguity within our industry. We communicate in a user-friendly way, creating clarity and transparency in all we do, thus driving tangible value and ROI.
