I’m Kelly Weekes and I am a social media expert and Facebook ads strategist specialising in the book industry.

I help authors with their social media presence, either building on their existing presence or helping them to get started if they are new to social media.

I help busy publishers by managing Facebook advertising campaigns, mentoring and training staff and authors in social media and devising social media strategies.

I also work with other book related businesses to help them reach their objectives through social media and/or Facebook advertising.

I have worked in publishing for twenty years and thrive on marketing stories and helping to get books into the hands of readers.

Social media services

Social Media offers so many opportunities to authors, publishers and businesses to engage and build relationships with their readers and audiences. I offer a range of services to help you succeed on social media whether you are just starting out or have an established presence already but want to build on it to make it even more effective for you.

Facebook advertising services

With 72% of the UK’s population on Facebook, Facebook advertising offers a very targeted way to reach your audience. Ads are also an essential part of your Facebook strategy as your content is only seen by a small percentage of your audience organically.

Kelly is a highly skilled social media strategist and this, coupled with her considerable publishing experience, made her ideal to work with on developing Enid Blyton’s social media presence.

Kelly delivered a very thorough social media strategy, setting out a plan for launching new channels for Enid Blyton as well as growing existing channels. She managed the channels for nine months and achieved great results.

Kelly provided additional support during a key title launch and created a big summer social media campaign moment #MyBlytonSummer to keep Enid Blyton front-of-mind during the summer holidays, even pulling in a third party promotional partner.

Kelly is highly knowledgeable, capable and experienced but also full of ideas and is a great pleasure to work with. I thoroughly recommend her.

I booked a one-to-one 'power hour' session with Kelly and would recommend it highly. Kelly has a wealth of experience and knowledge which she brings to her social media strategies. She is friendly, warm, and approachable (especially important for me working in a new area with all the uncertainty the can bring!). Her depth of marketing and publishing experience means she can marry her insights from the industry with her social media recommendations. She was generous with her advice. Her thorough preparation and thoughtfulness meant that there was nothing generic about her recommendations, they were absolutely tailored to my work, my mission and my personal needs - but set in a bedrock of understanding the marketing landscape I needed to make an impact on. Plus, importantly, she’s just lovely, which makes it all much more fun!
