Hire Me!


SME Social Media Specialist

I’m Scarlett – a Freelance Social Media Marketing Consultant with specialist expertise in social media consultancy, training, strategy and planning, as well as a skill set in wider marketing services, including PR, copywriting and content marketing. By taking the time to get to know you and your business, I can create defined recommendations and help you plan, implement and develop an online presence that doesn’t just build a loyal online community but drives sales and increased visibility to maximise your return on investment.

Not Your Run-Of-The-Mill

I care about the businesses I work with and manage their online presence as if it were my own. This means pro-actively connecting with target audiences and growing your customer base organically through high-quality content and daily sustained community management. Instead of buying followers and collecting them like bottle-tops, I will cultivate an engaged and targeted audience that are interested in your product/service and will become future customers and loyal customer advocates!

No Hidden Charges, No Posting Limits and No Set Work Hours

Just a genuine, personal and bespoke service where I want to get to know you, your story and all about your business in order to help you and your business grow and succeed online. By working with me you can rest assure that you will never pay more than you need to, always speak directly to me and importantly have a tailored social media presence that will translate into real results for your business.

Refreshingly Straight-forward

Whether you want me to work with you from the very beginning or help you get your existing marketing efforts back on track, once I get to the heart of your business I can set about helping you make the biggest possible impact in the most efficient and cost-effective way. I’ll recommend, create, develop and utilise the tools and strategies best suited to the needs of your business, and work with you as much or as little as you want or need.

Free Bespoke Social Media Proposal

Interested in working together? Brilliant. In the very beginning I get to know you, your business goals and values and get all the information I need to form an effective social media strategy that reflects you and your business objectives. I will then put together a bespoke, comprehensive proposal that will outline my aims and advice for your social media presence. If you love the proposal then great, we can quickly get your online presence formed and optimised and you will then start enjoying the benefits of a well-maintained and effective social media presence.

Client Testimonials

This Guide is wonderful and I wish I had this when I started up in business. It is beautifully written and is very easy to read, with good structure in plain English, something too often lacking these days! You are very clever, not only to have thought if this but also to have executed it in such a relaxed manner. It tells me in very clear terms what I need to do and why.

I have worked with Scarlett extensively in the past few years and trust her completely to do a great job. She is so easy to work with and I will never go with anyone else but her for my social media marketing.

Many thanks to @ConsultScarlett Scarlett Darbyshire for her suggestion back in the summer that I should enter #SBS. Her expertise and help with social media has really paid off this week. If you are a small business looking for an expert, you can’t go far wrong.

I was clueless about social media before I met Scarlett but after a few hours training with her I feel much more confident! Her approach and training is very professional and straightforward and it feels great knowing she will always be on hand if I need anything.
