Choosing who to work with can be a tricky process especially when so much of the world is online. It means I can work on projects from start to finish, without ever meeting the people behind it. Where possible I book face to face meetings and for everything else, there’s Skype.

Having a synergy with clients is so important as it means the better I know you, the better your website will be. So do feel free to get in touch and see if you’d like for us to work together.

In the meantime, the testimonials below give an insight from those who have worked with me (and continue to do so).

We were put in touch with Holly by our IT company as she was highly recommended. We have a small hard landscaping company and we were looking for an experienced web designer that could create the perfect website for us. Well what can we say. Holly was honest, knowledgeable, creative and patient from the very first meeting we had. We explained what we wanted and Holly took our vision and turned it into reality. Considering she knows nothing about our trade, that did not stop her creative mind coming up with new ideas and solutions to how we wanted our website to come across. Holly always explained what she was doing and why, which was great for us as our IT skills are almost non existent. We are absolutely over the moon on how our site has come out. Every little detail we wanted is on there, from the layout of picture sto our company colours. Once again, thank you Holly.

Having started a podcast recently, I knew social media needed to be an integral part of spreading the word and getting my message in front of my audience. Not being a huge social media user or fan, I knew I needed the help of a consultant. Enter Holly. Despite living on opposite sides of the globe, I feel Holly is right by my side, helping me on my way.  
Through the use of multi-media channels Holly has successfully navigated me through the uncertain waters of social media. She started with a thorough explanation of the various platforms which would support my podcast best. We developed a plan & agreed on the mix of posts that would create the best engagement. It worked like a dream and my interactions have shot through the roof. 
With Holly’s help, not only have I gained more social media traction, and thus more listeners, she has made the process such a pleasure that her passion has rubbed off and I’ve started to become just a little bit of a social media addict too! 

Lisa York, The Supermum Podcast

Holly is one of the most professional and helpful people I know. She constantly provides a level of support and assistance well above and beyond. In all our dealings with her, my staff and I have found her to be honest, professional and exceptionally talented. Holly has worked closely with the team to understand our business and personal motivations, and has ensured that our new collateral will showcase our ethos at every stage.

Sanjeev Gupta, Strategic Discourse

I have known and worked with Holly for many years. It has always been an absolute pleasure when we have worked together. She has a positive and open minded attitude to everything we have worked on whilst providing clear and decisive direction. She has great creative, practical and people skills no matter how challenging the situation and brings a calm and confident approach to the various challenges that we have faced together, always happy to jump in and get involved at any level.

Holly was an essential part of the MTM team at a time of great change. We needed someone with an external perspective and the requisite expertise to help inform and guide us to develop our internal visions for the company into a focused marketing plan. Her hands on approach was invaluable in terms of executing the plan and she is an never-ending “ideas factory” which helped us realise innovative yet sustainable growth. I would not hesitate to recommend Holly in the future and I am already looking forward to working with her again.

Claire Blizard, MTM Consulting

When starting out my new venture I had very little experience with social media or running any sort of small business. It was a daunting task but i just put my head down and went for it. I was fortunate enough to meet Holly. She followed my progress and pointed me in the direction of tutorials that have been a really useful tool. Holly took time out of her busy schedule to catch up with me and talk me through all sorts of ideas and changes that I can try to improve my website and Instagram following. This has all been such invaluable information. She has been a truly wonderful resource and everything she has told me I have taken on board. Anyone would be lucky to work with such an intelligent and supportive woman.

Charlie Batchelor, Baby Batch Co

When I set up my own business I quickly realised that although I was confident in my ability to provide an excellent service to clients, I had no experience of promoting myself. The only social media platform I was very familiar with was LinkedIn and I realised that I needed help with getting to grips with social media, understanding which platforms I should be using and how I could use them to promote my services. Holly was an incredible support. After she designed and built my website for me, Holly created some tutorial videos so I could post blog updates and make changes to my website myself (something that was completely beyond me beforehand). I worked my way through her social media course. This course was fantastic, clearly and simply explaining why and how to use social media. Holly encouraged me to start blogging and posting information across several social media platforms, even sending me articles and memes if she thought they would be good for me to use. Holly was always on the end of the phone if I had a panic that I wasn’t getting the hang of it all, or if a blog post didn’t do as well as I had hoped. Initially I was terrified by the idea of making a video of myself speaking about my company but again, Holly’s unwavering support, combined with her calm and encouraging manner meant that before I knew it, we had made several short videos to promote my services. The videos had the highest engagement of anything I had posted, reaching more than 10 times my page audiences.  When I talk to my friends about my social media strategy and everything I’ve learnt in the space of a few short months they cannot believe the change in me and I’m regularly asked to teach what I’ve learnt to my friends who also have their own businesses.

Fay Wallis, Bright Sky HR

I had a change of career and the website builder I had used previously was’t comfortable with the style of site I was after. In fact I was stuck on a holding page for over a year! 
Holly was from the very first conversation completely on board with what I wanted and understood the visions I had for my company image. Holly has been informative, helpful and always kept in contact throughout the process. Even when I have made a couple of wrong choices with regards to layouts and background colour she has indulged me and let me see that she was in fact right all along. 
I have learnt that when it comes to computer based layouts she knows exactly what is what. Her technical knowledge in relation to social media connectivity is reaching far beyond mine and I didn’t think I was that bad. 
I look forward to keep learning from Holly and engage more in the tools she eagerly provides all her clients with to reach out to a larger client base. I can’t recommend her enough!

Kat Haagel, The Style Smith

I first got in touch with Holly because I had rather neglected my website and felt it could do with a bit of a refresh to make it more engaging for families looking to hire me. Holly told me she did website reviews and the feedback she gave me was incredibly useful. Not only did she tell me what was working on my website, she also told me what wasn’t working. She gave me a clear plan of action that really improved the flow and experience for potential clients. Thanks Holly!

Holly delivered the website I needed and wanted for my business with minimal fuss but maximum enthusiasm. From our first discussion Holly understood my brief and worked hard to deliver it.
I have now worked with Holly on two websites and on both occasions I was happy with her prices, visuals and service from proof to going live. Holly really understood my requirements and I have since recommended Holly to numerous people who have all been really satisfied.
If i was asked to describe Holly I would say that she is always friendly, positive, responsive, proactive, engaging, understanding, patient and capable of delivering websites of a consistently high quality.

Claire Butler, C B Accounting

Holly’s work on the Kingston Child Contact Centre website was exemplary. She understood the brief immediately and worked hard to deliver the incredible site we have today. Holly took the time to explain user journeys, how modals worked and why certain styling was important. Holly went above and beyond the brief, sourcing stock images and creating our logo for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Holly for a website build and know you will enjoy working with her as much as I have.
