Our Story

Our story makes OfficeHounds Social Media Agency the best choice for your organic social media marketing. 

14 years ago in 2009, OfficeHounds was started in England as a Virtual Assistance business by me, Maggie Langley. I was a small-town Iowa gal who found herself happily married to a Londoner and spent 15 years in the fantastic UK, full of good humour (or humor), proper ‘real ale’, rugby, history…seriously, don’t get me started about all that, I love about my old home of 15 years. Let’s get back to business.

After being made redundant or ‘laid off’ from an office job, I used my freedom and extra money to start OfficeHounds.

For a giggle, when preparing this email, I had a look at our original British website officehounds.co.uk on the Waybackmachine.

I had included the quote…
‘Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson 

What an appropriate quote for a no-nothing-wannabe-business-woman! The startup of the business was approached with great enthusiasm, and that enthusiasm and fortitude carried the business through difficult times. When the business was still fairly young, my husband had a major surgery for Cauda Equina Syndrome, which left him with chronic pain and permanent numbness in his left foot. Enthusiasm and necessity pushed me to grow the business when it was our only source of income. I became a Virtual Assistant for a woman who earned an MBE (award from the Queen) for her service to British small businesses.  I relentlessly learned and listened to the needs of small businesses in the UK and moved into social media marketing. So many small business owners were struggling with this and needed affordable support. A highlight during my time in the UK was doing social media for a non-profit tech startup that was a community crowdfunding platform. I was proud to earn my place on the Board of Directors and even more proud to be invited to attend two meetings at the Palace of Westminster!

Other highlights included working closely with Alan Barrell, the then, Entrepreneur in Residence at Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. Here’s an interview I did with him about his book for Entrepreneurs, ‘Show Me the Money’

It was also fun interviewing Lasse Mäkelä, CEO of Invesdor about Crowdfunding in Europe

Another source of business fun was the Whitstable Business TweetUp that I co-founded with 2 other local business people at a beautiful venue with windows overlooking the sea. My business buddies continued running it until the Pandamic put a stop to it.

Above all, the absolute biggest highlight of OfficeHounds was when my husband Chris joined the business. We applied for his Green card and planned our ‘Great Escape’ to Iowa in August 2015.

Here’s us right after his greencard got approved at the U.S. Embassy in London! In 2019, he became a citizen of the USA!

If you care about business more than dogs, then skip to the last paragraph, but I question your priorities. Seriously, you don’t have to love dogs to work with us, but if you love dogs and want to tell us about yours, we’re all ears. 

We waited to move until our quirky and stubborn Basset Hounds named Dave and Iris passed away from old age. (They are the inspiration for the business name OfficeHounds.) We packed up our stuff and moved to a small town with a population of 500 people in Iowa.

We adopted a 5-year-old black Bassador (part Labrador, part Basset Hound) named Gordon. He came to us with a love of scarves and was pretty good at sleeping on the job.

Don’t be too sad, folks. After losing our best buddy Gordon, we adopted a female dog named Daisy in December 2020. She was rescued from being euthanized in Texas. They didn’t know she was pregnant at the time. We adopted Daisy AND her adorable puppy Oliver.

To return to our business story, we were invited by a global marketing firm to develop a white label social media package just for them. This is how we started our journey as a white label social media reseller.

Another major highlight was having our brother Jon join the business as Sales Director. He takes great care of our customers in the UK, and we love that he helps us keep a strong presence in Great Britain. We’re proud to have an talented well-trained remote team who help us to consistently deliver quality social media content to our growing list of customers. It’s a happy life here in the ‘Field of Dreams’, Iowa.

We’re glad to be connected with you and hope you’ll join us to see what’s in store for OfficeHounds in the next 10 years!

Don't Be Shy. Get In Touch.

Tell us about your business. OfficeHounds would love to help.
