Laura’s Story

I originally studied History at Chichester University. Whilst there, I found myself a little Saturday job in a high end boutique opticians as an optical assistant.

After graduating, I became their web and digital marketing coordinator and from the outset, I loved it! I loved reading about it, writing about it and sharing content with local people.

A few years later, I decided to further my education and graduated from Udacity with a Nanodegree in Digital Marketing. This gave me all the skills needed to transfer my marketing skills from the optician’s store, to all kinds of businesses. In November 2017, I qualified as a Google Partner, giving another certificate to my wall and solidifying my skills as a PPC professional.

Since my humble beginnings, I have been involved in marketing campaigns for all different kinds of businesses including holistic sound therapy, make up artistry, recruitment, garden landscaping, carbon fibre manufacturing, jewellers, the list goes on! No two days are the same and I always love the challenge of something new.

Any business wishing to improve their digital footprint and/or wanting to outsource website or marketing duties, I’d love to hear from you. I accept one off jobs, occasional jobs or monthly recurring work for businesses big, small or even those not yet in existence!

I am based in Chichester, West Sussex but I grew up in the countryside town of Petworth, that's where my heart is. I am a member local networking group, The Last Friday Club, where I regularly attend to catch up with business people in my area. I am also a keen traveller of the world and wherever I go, my work comes too!
