Hi, I'm Briony

I'm an Australian who's been living in Glasgow for nearly 8 years. I solve digital marketing challenges for independent businesses.

In February 2018, I started working for Dear Green Coffee Roasters as their part-time marketing manager. I still have some capacity for freelance work so please get in touch if you're interested in working together. 

I work with small businesses who need help reaching new customers. I've got years of experience of marketing in Glasgow and can help you understand (and reach!) your target audience. 

Some of the things I do: Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), digital marketing strategy, social media audits and social media management, training workshops in SEO and social media, setting up SEO-friendly websites and copywriting. I also organise events from time to time.

I love digital marketing and working with indie businesses. I take great pride in helping you to understand analytics, and empowering you to tackle SEO themselves. Of course, I do offer ongoing retainers if you’re too busy to handle it yourself!

my backstory (an abbreviated version!)

In Australia, I worked as a property lawyer completing multi-million dollar property transactions at one of Australia's biggest law firms. I moved to Glasgow in 2009 to follow my heart and fell in love with the city at the same time. 

When I moved to Glasgow, I couldn't practice as a lawyer (different legal systems and all that...) so I volunteered at Paisley Law Centre and worked at UWS. I taught law across all levels and created a clinical legal skills module to teach students the practical skills needed to work in law. I was on the steering committee who organised a conference to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the judgment in Donoghue v Stevenson. This conference saw delegates from around the world converge on Paisley for a 3 day event, and now there's now a stone to commemorate the case where the cafe once stood. 

The Glasgow Food Blog launched in 2010 and I've been writing about the amazing food scene in Glasgow ever since. I write honest reviews about the restaurants I love. No chains, no freebies, no press releases – just reliable, honest reviews about Glasgow's best businesses. 

In 2013, I completely changed careers and started working for Yelp. At the time, Yelp was one of the leading review platforms around the world. I was Yelp Glasgow's Community Manager and grew Glasgow to be one of the most successful communities for Yelp in Europe over 3.5 years. If you want to read more about the work I did for Yelp, you can see my glowing recommendations from my bosses over on LinkedIn.

Around this time I was appointed chairperson of Glasgow Roller Derby which had more than 100 members. I was chair for a year and half and when I resigned, the club had "What Would Briony Do?" t-shirts made in my honour. I often miss playing roller derby but I don't miss the aches, pains and bruises! 

I've been working as a freelancer since January 2017 and I'm chuffed to be working for indie business in Glasgow and around the world. I work for food and drink businesses, fitness, tourism, tech and service-based businesses.

I co-host the Scottish Bloggers Collective, run The Finnieston Food Crawl and just finished a copywriting course. I'm the kind of person who always has a few projects on the go, which means I'm excellent at sticking to deadlines and communicating with my clients.
