I am Vicki Jakes, from Brighton, UK and I help advise businesses like yours find your ideal customers online.

You might be a start-up or a small business that doesn’t have the time or the budget to invest in marketing services because you’re doing it all yourself. You might not know where to start to look or what the best tools or platforms for the job are. Maybe you just want advice to short circuit what you’re doing.

That’s where I come in.

I promote an approach that helps you get up and running quickly using search, content, social and ads so that you can start testing what works and what doesn’t.

What my clients say…

Here’s what some of my clients had to say about working with me.

“Vicki recently built me a website for my business and I have to say that she did a fantastic job. I thought I knew what I wanted but being a complete novice at web stuff I wasn’t able to communicate that very well. Vicki clearly knows what she is doing and helped me understand and realise what I was looking for in no time at all.”

“Vicki’s help was so useful when I needed someone to guide me through the daunting task of social media marketing. What I found was enormously helpful was how she broke things down into bite sized pieces and suggested which forms of social media would be the most effective for my business. She has a great way of explaining things!”

As well as understanding the technical requirements, Vicki is able to show enormous creativity to provide a unique, bespoke service.

She has been very approachable and doesn’t mind explaining things that we do not understand. She has also given us great advice on how to maximize our potential using social media. Thank you Vicki.”
