About Speccy Media.

We’re Laura and Dan, a creative team of two that live and breathe tech. It could be said that digital marketing, web design and development really is our calling; we love what we do!

Our story started in 2017 when Laura opened the business an a solo-preneur and offered her digital marketing services to local businesses in our hometown of Chichester. Fast forward two years and with the business going from strength to strength it was time for expansion! That’s where Dan comes in. As a web designer and developer with a big agency background, Dan became one half of Speccy Media to share the load, boost our web services and help grow the business.

Another year on and two just wasn’t enough to support the marketing services needed by small businesses in Chichester and beyond. So we grew our team to 4, bringing in Fern, a dedicated social media manager and Emma who supports us with copywriting and SEO. We are small but mighty! As a team we offer a hub of marketing services to help our clients grow.

Laura Westmore

I’m Laura, the original founder of Speccy Media, it’s been my baby with me as it’s solo employee until recently! Here’s my story.

I originally studied 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 social media manager and content marketer and from the outset, I loved it!

I decided to further my education and qualify in Digital Marketing to take this further afield. I became able to transfer my marketing skills from the optician’s store, to all kinds of businesses. Whilst looking for my niche, I discovered a passion for Google and Facebook ads so I became a registered Google Partner. This took me forwards into learning more about Google Analytics and advanced website tracking via Google Tag Manager. There’s nothing I love more than seeing businesses grow from my work!

My ethos is a personal one. I’m not invisible, I’m not just someone you email. I love catching up with clients and I project many jobs for Speccy Media. Keeping in touch and maintaining solid relationships is what our business is built on. We feel like part of your team, not just people you hire.

Marketing can be a headache for those whose skill sets are elsewhere, but this is where we flourish & take away that stress. I love seeing our clients do what they do best rather than struggling through complicated tech.

Dan Meade

Hey, I’m Dan. I’m very proud to say that I’m the other half of Speccy Media.

I’ve been pinching pixels and writing code ever since my early university days when I wanted to build a website but had no clue how to do it and no money to hire someone else. I always liked a challenge so I just kinda jumped in and taught myself! I devoured every tutorial I could find, broke pre-existing code more times than you can possibly imagine and threw more temper tantrums than I’d like to admit, but in the end, I had taught myself a skill that I’m very thankful to have developed into not only something I love but into a career.

In the 10 years that have followed, I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked on projects used by hundreds of thousands of football fans, by everyday car sharers, by those helping care for cancer patients, by world-renowned music artists and by everyday people looking for the products they love. From bedroom brands to brands with a thousand employees, every project brought something new and something I could learn from.

That’s the real beauty of this thing I call my job, it’s more than just that – it’s what I do for fun, and hopefully, that reflects in my work. I’m always excited to hear about a new project, so if you think we’re the right people to help you, drop us an email and we’ll book in a chat!
