Using Anomaly screens to promote a healthy lifestyle is one of the main aims of Anomaly. With figures revealing that a third of children leaving primary school are obese, our graphics department have been working pedal to the metal over the summer to create some fresh, new and engaging pieces of content, that aren’t quite your traditional ‘follow an instructor’ exercise videos.

These videos immerse pupils into game shows or even a whole new world, which will get them moving around – without them even realising. Through the gap is a series of videos asking the viewer to get their body into a position that matches the gap in the panel. This tests viewers flexibility, balance and strength to be able to hold the positions. 5 levels are currently available, with more planned including levels in pairs and
small teams. Through gap
Monster Moves: Why do normal yoga when you could do monster moves yoga? This series asks the viewer to mirror the moves of the monsters and tests their memory at the end to see if they can recall the moves they have learnt. MM 2 Curious Manor: Can you help with the strange events going on at the Curious Manor? This series enlists the help of the viewer to perform physical activities to test the whole body and help rid the manor of the curious happenings. Viewers can be asked anything from helping to karate chop flying plates (improving hand-eye coordination) to ducking down to avoid the swinging lights (strengthening the lower body by squatting).CM 1 With new series planned and more in the pipeline on current series in terms of levels, difficulty and duration, pupils can get healthy by recording which levels they can complete and which they need to work on. They can even build on teamwork and co-operation with the levels that require pair work or small teams. Keep an eye out for more of these videos throughout the year!

In this blog post read all about the success of two Anomaly schools in our latest blog post. Eastbury Comprehensive School, Essex & Abraham Moss Community School, Manchester. The first of the two Anomaly schools Eastbury Comprehensive School saw recent success as they won a TES Schools Award for “English teacher or team of the year”. The Anomaly school wanted a digital media revamp to their existing infrastructure. This is when Anomaly aided the school by connecting their existing internal screens to allow them to stream their own content wherever necessary. The second of the two Anomaly schools Abraham Moss Community School also saw recent success as they also won a TES Schools Award for “Community and collaboration award”. Much similar to Eastbury Comprehensive School they wanted an alternative to their existing digital media strategy. Anomaly supported them with an upgrade to their Anomaly Content Manager system which allowed the school to upload, manage and broadcast content around the school quickly and easy.

Anomaly step up their marketing strategy to gain national recognition! In this blog post Anomaly will be exploring its current and previous marketing strategy. We will also cover Anomaly’s understanding of the need for businesses to make use of digital marketing tools in order to thrive in the modern world. In the previous blog post we talked about revamping our website to make it up to date with current trends and information. In this blog I (Louis) will be talking about joining Anomaly and helping to revamp their marketing strategy. The initial marketing strategy Prior to my arrival at Anomaly, we already had an active audience on all social media platforms, as well as averaging a couple of sessions on the website, but Anomaly deserved to be an established brand. Anomaly had never hired someone for this type of role previously which gave me room to explore my ideas in relation to digital marketing. My initial response was to completely reword all the copy on the website and make it more search engine friendly. Anomaly did not have a company blog, which I was more than happy to start and incorporate all over our website. How could we improve? In my first week at Anomaly, I came up with an initial marketing strategy. The main points that came up were that we needed to make the website responsive on all devices. Next, I went on to have a look at our copy on the website. Although the copy wasn’t bad, it needed more keywords and a clear direction to what it is that Anomaly offered as a company. After studying competitors actions and how they presented their brand, some copy was written for the website. Another area that this led to was to include keyword in the title tags of our website, which has shown great results. I also made sure that all social media links were prominent on each page. This leads me on to our social media, as explained before we already had an active following on Twitter but it was important that the following continued to grow. That’s when we introduced the Anomaly blog which offers news related to Anomaly. This allowed us to give a constant stream of content on all social media pages. The results Anomaly gave me the opportunity to project my ideas to take the business forward and I feel that we have had an amazing response in my first month here. Traffic to our website has improved drastically, our social media pages have improved and hopefully this will lead to national recognition for Anomaly after implementing this marketing strategy.

In this blog post we will be looking at the new Anomaly website. Over the past month or so, things have been falling into place for Anomaly, thus forcing us to revamp our current website. Previously the Anomaly website was gaining a steady stream of hits, but as the company grew, we thrived for better results. That’s when we started to rethink our approach to the company website. What we were already doing Anomaly already had a strong web presence and social media following, but as we grew, we knew this needed to be better. The first step was to analyse where we were at currently and how we could be better. We took pride on the fact Anomaly had just over 400 followers at the start of last month as well as a steady stream of traffic to our website, this is when we thought about what we could do differently. The plan The plan was to revamp the Anomaly website so it was up to date with Anomaly related content, this included updating any out of date pages and launching the company blog. We quickly began researching our current audience and current trends related to the business and began writing tailored content to suit our audience. This included a rewrite of the copy on the Anomaly website so it was more user friendly and optimised for SEO. We also planned to update our team page so that users can get a better feel for the people they talk to when working with Anomaly. The execution  Once everything was planned, it was time for the execution. Firstly we included more keywords and relevant information in the hope that we would bring more traffic to the Anomaly website. We then launched our company blog, providing users with a constant stream of Anomaly content, related to the services that we provide as well as news about what’s going on within the business. We also took an alternate approach to our social media which has proved to be successful. We’ve earned just short of 1000 followers on Twitter as well as a vast improvement on engagement and impressions on our Facebook page. We’re still not finished revamping the Anomaly website, behind the scenes we’re currently revamping our team page so users can have an up to date list of the members of team Anomaly.
