Bam! Hit the ground running! Just a few short weeks after wrapping up UNSW’s inaugural Social Media Day, attended by 650+ people and livestreamed in Australia, India and China, with 10 individual keynote talks, panel discussions and masterclasses, I am now on the hunt for 1-2 new clients to join our current roster.
Across the last 8 years of my life, I have built a wealth of knowledge and experience as a global award-winning Digital/Social Media Strategist and Content Producer across a range of industries including B2B, tech/apps, fintech, FMCG, beer/alcohol brands, Not-For-Profit, higher education, the property market. health & wellness, cosmetics and travel.
Over the past 3 years, my business has worked both agency and client-side, with the likes of Telstra Enterprise, the Plant Life Balance augmented reality greening app launch (as part of The Bravery agency), Moula Money fintech, Cancer Council Australia, Transplant Australia, UNSW, Soap Creative (PepsiCo snacking, Ferrero, Microsoft), Property Now, Cherry Blooms global cosmetics brand, Mahlab Agency (on a global B2B digital client, hbf insurance) and many more.
We generate full organisational audits of physical/digital assets, 1-3 year strategic roadmaps and digital ecosystems, content pillars that ladder up to strategic business and brand objectives as part of a marketing funnel, content (podcasts, photography, video and blog content), Best Practice Social Media Playbooks, digital media reporting frameworks, business-as-usual/campaign ideation, organizational training workshops, Issues & Crisis Management Escalation procedures, influencer outreach and driving efficiencies with the set-up of client internal/external systems, processes and ways of working.
The choice is yours. We can either teach you to fish, write strategy and train your internal team (1-on-1, workshops) to roll it out, or action it all ourselves on a project fee or monthly retainer.
Get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!

Hot & Delicious Rocks The Planet! – Global Award-Winning Social Media Strategy & Content Production for your brand.
Well now, what an amazing year 2017 has been!
After taking the leap of faith and leaving my role as Social Media Lead at SapientNitro Australia to step back into my own Social Media Strategy & Content Production business, I have relocated to Sydney from Melbourne (via Los Angeles) to take on Cancer Council Australia as a client, significantly diversified our depth of experience across a range of different industries, lectured social media strategy in university at Macleay College in Sydney for the first time, had my own radio show on Bondi Beach Radio and run a series of live podcasts including the International Business Review Conference in Melbourne just 2 weeks ago!
Over the past year or so, Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! have worked Cancer Council Australia, Planet Life Balance Virtual Reality Greening app, Moula fintech, Mahlab Agency (global B2B business, hbf insurance), REBORN Agency, and Cherry Blooms global cosmetics brand providing a range of services including a full audit of organisational digital ecosystems and assets, the generation Best Practice Social Media Playbooks and Monthly Reporting templates, creation of systems and processes to improve internal/external ways or working and 2-3 year strategic roadmaps.
3 key points have only further solidified in my mind over this time. We as Social Media Strategists, Creatives and Account Management teams need to push our teams and our clients to be more sophisticated in the creation of through-the-line strategies and content that generate Social Social Media designed for the User Experience, Funnel Strategies that drive ROI and evolve our approach for the The Next Wave of Brand Influencer Campaigns.
Inspirational quotes do zero for your brand objectives unless you’re a meditation/yoga business or run a speaker agency, cat videos and dog memes aren’t suitable unless you’re Whiskas or Chum and generic lifestyle/beauty products laid out on a towel on the beach is just not doing much of value to sales or a connection with your brand.
If you haven’t implemented the following in your agency or brand yet, then this is where you need to start in 2018:
- Social Social Media + UX – Generate Content That You’d Want To See In Your Own Mobile Newsfeed. Don’t use social media to yell at people! Billboards ≠ Effective Content.
- Create a Funnel Strategy. Create strategic content and advertising campaigns to drive results and client ROI.
- Design or re-design your digital ecosystem with specific roles.
- Assess your current digital ecosystem.
- Determine where your target audience are playing.
- Assess what ad solutions best suit your objectives and target audience penetration.
- Ladder your Content Pillars -> Social Media Objectives -> Business Pillars.
- Utilize your content and ad spend as part of a Funnel Strategy.
- Design or re-design your digital ecosystem with specific roles.
- The Next Wave of Brand Influencer Campaigns – Pivot from the wanna-be Instagram model to working with and upskilling influencers to create campaigns with a measurable uplift in Sales and Return On Investment.
