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 think of my work

“Vicki helped me set up my website and being a bit of a disaster with computers her help was invaluable! We discussed how I wanted the website to look, I showed her examples of ones I liked and the final result was exactly what I wanted. It’s easy for me to navigate and reflects me as a person. I couldn’t recommend Vicki highly enough and would happily recommend her to friends and family.”

“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 has a great eye for design and was able to build a website that not only looked awesome but worked perfectly too…. all with no fuss at all.
I couldn’t recommend anyone more!”

“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 and didn’t make me feel awkward in any way if I kept asking questions”

Belinda – Musical Bumps, Brighton and Hove

“Vicki is highly a professional and proficient woman who is my first port of call for anything website. As well as understanding the technical requirements, Vicki is able to show enormous creativity to provide a unique, bespoke service. She is approachable, amenable, adaptable as well as being efficient and effective. I wholeheartedly recommend!”

Claire – Claire Duffy Education Centre

“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 (you’d be amazed at those that don’t include this) efficient and effective working website and was punctual and professional. I highly recommend her work.”
