Laura Hayes

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

I’m a Cork-based digital marketer, writer, website manager and tech nerd who spends too much time 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’ve worked as a content creator in a variety of industries, including: travel, bridal, hospitality, medical, retail and theatre. My wide-ranging experience means I’m used to getting quickly up to speed with a new subject. Then, I can identify areas for improvement and help that business better communicate with their customers. I can also teach clients how to better understand what the all-important statistics are telling them.

My digital marketing skills include:

  • Blogging & website content writing (read examples here)
  • Social media account analysis & management
  • SEO
  • Search engine marketing
  • Email marketing
  • Graphic design for social media
  • Digital photography
  • Social media video production & post-production

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 LinkedIn or pop an email to
