About KD

Hi, I’m Kate. Lover of all things digital!

I’ll be honest…

 

I created KD Design & Marketing in late 2017 as I needed a source of income that I could work around my children.

They are now 2 & 3, and, as any of you with kids will know, they can be a handful.

But..I knew they needed me to be present & that working a full-time job with no freedom was doing no-one any favours.

 

So how does my business work?

 

I work two days a week (daycare days hooray!), and then work evenings & weekends when my partner is home to mind the kids. If I don’t answer your phone call straight away, I might be knee deep in kid stuff but rest assured I’ll always get back to you!!

 

So why KD Design & Marketing?

 

My career started out as the 4th employee of the company that developed the first social share button (the retweet button) that was distributed across over 500k websites & served over 8 billion times a day.

I played a pivotal part in developing the idea of a ‘sponsored tweet’ and spent my time encouraging agencies and brands to create adverts worth sharing (a very foreign concept c2009) to increase reach and the traditionally low click through rates found with traditional online banner advertising.

Since then I have kept up to date with current & changing web trends, & the digital sphere is a real passion for me.

I decided to turn this passion into my own business.

I have several areas of expertise, including, building websites, maintaining websites & managing customer social media accounts. You can find out about the services I offer here.

 

So what do I enjoy most about my job?

 

The freedom & flexibility is obviously hugely important to me, but hands down it has been the BEST experience meeting & getting to know so many new people. Even if you aren’t interested in my services I’d love to connect.

I’m a firm believer in that we can learn something from everyone.

 

How do you do it all on your own?

 

I stay up late and work weekends!

Yes..I do, but I have also met an amazing network of freelancers just like me that I trust with some jobs here and there. They are an extremely talented bunch so rest assured any work is of the highest quality.

I am always on the hunt for new freelancers, especially to write some guest blogs for me. Get in touch if this sounds like you!

 

What do I do in my spare time?

 

Being a pom that has settled over here (in Bunbury, WA), I’d be lying if the climate & beaches were not a massive draw for me (we are so spoilt!). The beach is 100% my #1 happy spot, & finest place to find inspiration.

More often than not you will catch me at the beach, splashing around with my awesome little family – or visiting one of the many Bunbury & South West parks with my two toddlers.

So WOW, I’ll be impressed if you made it this far through this blurb of waffle… But I think it is sometimes nice to get a sense of how someone clicks.

I’d LOVE to know more about you.

What are you waiting for?! Send me an email!

MY WORK

Just a small snapshot of some of my recent projects..
From my Clients
Don’t take my word for it, have a look at what my clients say.
I have used Kate Daniels from KD Design & Marketing to help me broaden my customer base, plus help me make better sense and use of online marketing.

After an initial consultation, Kate promptly put together an impressive and detailed marketing proposal, incorporating a website, facebook advertising amongst other beneficial strategies.

I was very impressed at the quality of the website designed and how Kate blended the framework I wanted to promote in an effective marketing tool.

It’s no exaggeration when I say I get bombarded by unscrupulous “supposed marketing businesses”, who are only interested in getting money with little or no concern about providing a service or how your business, product or service is conveyed in the market place, let alone achieving the intended outcome for your investment. This is definitely not the case with KD Design & Marketing and I am pleased I have Kate assisting me.

I have no hesitation in recommending or referring KD Design & Marketing to my networks. Chris Johnson

Proprietor, AXIO Maintenance & Construction

Kate offered to help my business when I was at a design loose-end. Not only did the flyer she created look great, but she provided the product with grace and friendly professionalism. Thank you very much! Neala Miles

Kate designed my business website and I couldn’t be happier. Her technical and design experience is great, and she is so lovely to work with. I would highly recommend Kate for your design and marketing requirements. She is also providing continued technical support for me, and she goes above and beyond to anticipate my website’s needs.
