Hi, I’m Helen.

I run MakeDigitalWork.

And if you recognise yourself in one of the scenarios below, I’d love to have a chat?

"I am the owner of a small business"


I invest in marketing and I have someone on the team that does our day to day marketing, and I outsource some of the digital tasks to various contractors.
It seems to be working, but I’m just not sure that what we are doing in our digital and social media marketing is all that effective.
I am assured that the results are good. But are they? What should I really monitor and track to make sure I get the best results.
No, we don’t have a very clear overall marketing strategy. It’s currently just about getting more leads and sales. I mean what else would you expect from marketing?”

"I'm the Marketing Manager of a great business."

“I run a small busy team, looking after all aspects of marketing including social and digital.
I don’t like to admit it, but I haven’t got the time to keep up with all the changes happening.
I would really benefit from a monthly meeting where I can discuss some challenges and ideas and get some pointers.
I want to make sure we don’t get stale, I stay ahead of the changes and stay excited.

"I'm about to start my new business or consultancy. "

“I have a marketing budget and know that marketing will be one of the best investments I make.
BUT I don’t know where to start. I would love to have someone I trust to help me build out a clear plan, keep me on track, and ensure I set and achieve clear goals.”

Why I’d be delighted to help.

I consider Helen and her team, to be my most trusted and valuable partner. In our first outing 6 years ago she helped design a complete social media marketing programme that was custom built, deployed with staff training in 90 days which has now grown to be a major lead generation machine for our client.

Since then she been consistently delivering success across a wide variety of my clients. These projects cover a diverse range of markets from health software to data cabling and greentech services but because of Helen’s depth of understanding of how to build effective engagement she always delivers the goods with great value, plus a smile and good humour, especially when the pressure is on!
