About Hannah

Hannah has over 10 years’ experience building brands through the power of PR, content marketing and digital marketing campaigns. With experience working within FinTech, SaaS, FMCG and automotive, Hannah excels at B2B PR and supporting demand generation.


It is simply not possible to guarantee SEO results. Google has over 200 ranking factors and there are too many uncontrollable elements such as competitor activity and market volatility. Approach any SEO agency promising they will get you to number one on Google with caution.

While coding skills can be beneficial for customization and advanced features, there are many user-friendly website builders and content management systems (CMS) available that require little to no coding knowledge.

We have been perfecting our digital marketing skills, including paid social advertising, for over 16 years. We use data and tools to know what content to write to help your website get the results you are looking for. We know what makes content and campaigns work and what doesn’t in many different sectors. We know how to navigate the minefield of setting up campaigns that work on multiple platforms. We are always completely up to date with the different platforms, and we ensure our clients are making the most of their budget. We have a tried and tested process in place that generates results for our clients. There are thousands and thousands of guides, articles, YouTube videos out there that you could use to learn from. However, our clients see the value in using our specialist content marketing expertise, so that they can have confidence in achieving results and can concentrate on running their business.

Digital PR is a hugely important piece of the puzzle that contributes to SEO success. Our SEO specialists tie all the elements of a well-optimised site together to give it the best opportunity of performing well on the search engines. However, a technically clean website with great content but no backlinks will struggle to rank for competitive high search volume keywords. Equally, a site with lots of quality backlinks but a technical issue that prevents the site from being crawled effectively, or content that isn’t targeting the right keywords, isn’t going to perform well either. Each piece of the puzzle has got to work well together. We are experts at analysing a website and creating a strategy that is going to help it build momentum.
