Laura Hayes

I’m currently unavailable for hire on a freelance or contract basis.

I’m a Cork-based digital marketer, writer, website manager and tech nerd who is pretty much always online. After completing my degree in Media & Communication Studies and English Literature, I spent 5 years working in Television Advertising. In 2014 I made the move to Digital Marketing and in 2016 I received a Postgraduate Diploma from The Digital Marketing Institute.

I have provided Digital Marketing and Content Creation services in both freelance and full-time capacities for a diverse range of companies and professionals. This variety includes: A Travel Agency, Bridal Boutique, Four-Star Hotel, Specialist Dressmaker, Doctor’s Surgery, Restaurant, Lingerie Boutique, Gym, Dancewear Store and Theatre.

My Digital Marketing skills include: Blogging & Website Content Writing (read examples here), Social Media Management & Advertising, SEO, SEM, Email Marketing, Graphic Design, Digital Photography, Video Production & Post Production.

I have experience with the following programmes/platforms: WordPress, AróSuite, Microsoft RMS, HTML, Yoast SEO, Mailchimp, Blogger, HootSuite, Google Analytics & Webmaster Tools, Google Adwords, Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom & InDesign) and the full gamut of Social Media platforms.

In my free time I read non-fiction, take photographs, write bad poetry and drink far too much coffee. Want to keep in touch? Follow me on Instagram or LinkedIn or pop an email to
