I’m Vicki Jakes, from Brighton, UK providing digital project and marketing services on a freelance basis. I want to help small and medium sized companies get their digital marketing to create actual, tangible results in the form of new leads or more business. You know, stuff that actually works! I have over 12 years working for agencies delivering some huge websites and campaigns and I want to share that knowledge and experience with all to show how easy it can be done.

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.”
I couldn’t recommend anyone more!”

Josh Smith

Owner, Smith + Jakes

“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!”

“Vicki has built me several WordPress websites over the past 5 or more years, she helped with branding ideas, logos and insight so it wasn’t “just building a site” she provided much more including competent build, SEO set up, efficient and effective working website and was punctual and professional. I highly recommend her work.”
