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 found that not only did I love optics, but I also loved reading about it, writing about it and sharing content with local people. The satisfaction from increasing their reach numbers was undeniable.

Following this, 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. You can read more about my journey in my blog post.

I am based in Chichester, West Sussex. I love knowing what's going on, keeping up to date and meeting local people. I am a member of a local networking group called 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!
