Supporting women growing businesses without the overwhelm


I support women feeling frustrated and overwhelmed while growing a business using Search and Social Media Marketing.

Constantly spinning plates but just not progressing your business as quickly as you would like, you want to step up but are starting to lose the very passion that got you started in the first place...and don’t have much energy left for family and friends! 


Based in Dorset, but working with small business owners nationwide, I support you with Done-For-You packages and Done-With-You (Training) services so you can make more money from your passion without giving up more of your time, and spend it with your loved ones instead.


I'm a Search and Social Media Marketing specialist with 14 years experience managing marketing activity for large and small businesses.  Think of me as an extension of your business. I provide strategic thinking with simple processes to deliver a full-service agency offering without the price tag. We work together to grow your business, with you holding the reins at all times. 

Being a small business owner myself, I know first hand many of the challenges we face - spinning many plates at the same time, balancing work with friends and family, lack of support, maintaining good customer service and finding new customers, to name but a few!

Our knowledge of social media and the strategies behind it were non existent to us, but that's all changed since we've been working with Gates Digital Consultancy. On our limited budget, GDC have not only introduced us to Google Adwords but also run social media marketing and had the patience to educate us along the way and for that we're so grateful. We can now fully understand the data analysis that's provided and make informed decisions. We're happy to say that our business has grown as a result and we look forward to new and exciting times ahead with GDC !

I cannot recommend Gates Digital Consultancy highly enough. Louise really understood my business and what's more really 'cares'. It is like you have a partner in crime! She didn't baffle me with techy stuff and is really understanding and patient. Her work is top notch and that's the most important thing. Whatever idea you have she will bring it to fruition and what's more will supercede your greatest expectations! The trust and support I have in Louise is priceless

Louise helped me run my Retreat campaign on Facebook. The results were astounding and I only wish I had engaged her earlier, which I will do next time! She is an expert in her field and I was impressed with all that she had to offer me in my business from the moment I met her. I value her professionalism and talent in explaining everything so clearly and providing such a wonderful full service package. I also found the training to be very useful which will help me to experiment with running some of my own mini campaigns. Thank you Louise and I look forward to continuing our work together.


I am a mum starting out in self employed work and Gates Digital Consultancy have helped me build my confidence to start setting up my own facebook page and website. I was very satisfied with an excellent, professional and helpful consultation. Highly recommended.


Very recently I was a bit poorly.

Ok I was more than a bit poorly…I had a viral infection, which led to a lung infection, which then led to pneumonia.

I was so unwell I had no choice but to hit the pause button.

Everything stopped.

For almost 2 months.

As a mid-week single parent running a business being ill is the last thing you need!

My husband had to arrange to work from home and take on childcare, housework and all other life ad...

I want to address talking to your target audience.

Chances are you fit into one of two groups...

1) You are bursting with ideas of things to communicate to your target audience,

2) You are completely stumped for ideas.

The first group is a little easier to help as you just need a structure to get the ideas down and put them into a format that makes sense to your target audience. If you are in the second group, however, you are...

We’re all thinking it…Social media is a tricky animal. (Yes, even me!). How do I talk to my target customer, what do I say to them, how does everyone else seem to do it so well?!

Well I’m not going to try to fool you or insult your intelligence and tell you there is a magic cure to make it super simple and a walk in the park…

but I will tell you that you don’t need to be everywhere to reach your potential customers.
