I love working with places and products that I’m passionate about, and that are relevant to my dedicated readers. In my day job I am a social media manager and writer.
We can work together in two ways: either as a blogger…
I love working with brands but I only share I review candidly and honestly unaffected by origin, and any items sent or invites issued are clearly identified within the post. With posts featuring my original writing, I will happily consider collaborating on sponsored or commissioned travel and lifestyle posts (click link for examples) all of which include my own unique photography and (hopefully) a bit of humour.

…or as a social media consultant:
Drawing on my 5 years+ experience as both a blogger and content creator, I am passionate about promoting unique businesses with tailored social media management, destination marketing and online PR. Working with established and start-up brands alike, I offer client dedication and flexibility that traditional companies often struggle to provide.
In the UK alone with approximately 45% of online adults using Twitter, 19 million people on Instagram and 78% of over-18 year olds in the UK using Facebook; this means that your business needs to be maximizing its exposure and utilising these ‘non-traditional’ marketing platforms.
If you would like to speak about social media management, content creation or social media strategy, please contact me. I offer a variety of services from one-off audits and advice, through to full account management.
I have had a fair few questions from friends and family about what my business is actually doing, so I thought I’d clarify a little. Effectively there are two strands to the business; social media management and content/article writing. (I occasionally do a little PR problem solving and outreach, but on a very ad hoc basis.)
With 10,000 genuine followers across my social media platforms, working with luxury brands around the world as a press partner and with over 100,000 monthly views on most of my social media platforms, I have learned a bit of wisdom over the 5 years I have been blogging.
As it’s Monday, today I’m answering a few questions on the blog about my freelance social media business – come say hey! #linkinbio . . . #socialmediamarketing #socialmedia #freelance #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #creative #marketing #fun #branding #consultant #businesstime #businesstips #twitter #facebook #shoplocal #shopindie #shopsmall #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneur101 #boss #businessowner #businesswoman #london

Enough to have the confidence to advise brands and launch my own business. With several of my clients already, I have doubled and trebled their engagement, even in the short time I have been working with them. (I feel like this is the hardest part, sharing my skills in a non-boastful manner!)
In essence, I can run the social media accounts of small/medium businesses – usually Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and/or Pinterest. Often owners don’t have the time or the specialised skillset to get the most out of marketing their businesses – they are simply too busy running their businesses.
I offer 4 services;
- Account Auditing – advising businesses how to improve their social media accounts and postings. All the way from optimising their accounts to guiding them on what they shouldn’t be doing…
- Teaching – sharing the best way for staff to run the accounts day-to-day; making sure they have the right tone, a good mix of content and a vision that matches the goals of the business.
- Content Calendars – drafting up a pre-agreed amount of tweets/facebook/instagram posts in order to draw new and established clients to their website. These are tailored to the date and business, and their in-situ staff add the content to the social media accounts.
- Social Media Management – I add tailored and optimised content to the accounts, at the best possible times for interaction. I also run the behind the scenes operation, answering queries and helping solve problems.
Already I have been working with some amazing businesses and brands – all with unique passions and stories to tell the world.
AN ANNOUNCEMENT: Today I’m coming clean about why I have been a little absent from blogging. I have a business announcement, one that could only be shared via the medium of flatlay!

If websites are regularily updated with quality information, Google values it higher in their search results. It also keeps customers informed, lures them back in for a repeat visit and shares the amazing services that are offered. One of the best ways to do this? Write up to date, SEO optimised posts/articles with a natural tone.
I’ve set up an Etsy shop for a selection of one-off jobs – feel free to have a nose, feel even more free to share it with any of the business owners you know who need a hand (send them my website http://www.emmacreese.com or tell them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org) – this Etsy shop has 9 packages at a special launch price (and include VAT.)
That is a nutshell is my new business. Taking 5 years of social media addiction, and sharing my practical knowledge with the world.
So, how can I help you?
