Hey, I’m Suz Bird, founder of Bird and Emmy.
I help brands develop digital strategies and bring them to life.
Marketing has evolved in ways I couldn’t have imagined when I first started out almost two decades ago.
These days, it’s much easier for a small business to find and connect with an audience, but the choice of channels and options can be overwhelming.
I’m here to help you simplify and make things happen.
Strategy + Consistency + Community
When we work together, we’ll tie your digital marketing strategy to business goals and then create a social media content plan that puts your customers front and centre.
I’m flexible and my services are always bespoke. Wherever you’re at, we’ll pick up from there.
Everything changed for me in 2016. Within the space of a week, I went from employed and co-habiting with my daughter’s dad to redundancy and signing a lease on a new house to live in alone with my daughter. It wasn’t an easy time but I wouldn’t be where I am now if it hadn’t happened.
Self-employment made sense for me. I needed to work flexibly around my daughter but I still wanted a fulfilling career in the industry I’ve known and loved for 18 years.
I volunteered my time and expertise to a local charity event and met my first client as a result…
In June 2016, Bird and Emmy was born.
Since then, I’ve worked with clients in hospitality, healthcare, recruitment, retail, technology and charity to develop strategic digital marketing plans that make a difference.
I specialise in social media but the work I do goes beyond that. Social media is essential to a business these days but it doesn’t work alone.
When you use it in harmony with everything else you’re doing, you’ll build a loyal community that will grow right along with you.
I’ve had fun working alongside my clients to manage social media at industry events, train front of house teams on the importance of consistent communication, and recruit new team members who embody the spirit of the brand they’re working for.
Because when I’m on your team, I’ll take a hands-on approach to make sure the work we’re doing together has an impact.
Curious about how it all works?
Come this way and I’ll tell you.
