whO I Am
A mother of two with a dream of running her own business – affording her the flexibility to do what she loves but still be there for her kids.
Hi, I’m Kate and a lover of all things digital…
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 and in July 2017 (after quitting my full time job) KD Design & Marketing was born. I needed flexibility, I needed to be there for my children (they were only 1 & 2 at the time), and I knew that struggling to hold down a full-time job was doing no-one any favours.
Fast-forward two years and it was the best decision I could have made!
I primarily help businesses with their online presence with several areas of expertise, including, building websites, maintaining websites & managing customer social media accounts.
There are some awesome women out there doing things just like me. Occasionally I outsource bits and pieces to ensure you always receive top notch stuff.
Interested in working with me? Get in touch – I’d love to see if I can help 😃
what i do
I help small-medium sized businesses with their online presence.

FROM MY CLIENTS
Don’t take my word for it…see what my clients have to 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.
I have worked with Kate on and off over the past 10 years, at different businesses. Kate is a good designer and digital marketeer, who has been at the forefront of the digital marketing world over the past 10 years. I can highly recommend her and her work.
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!
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.
Kate has made a significant contribution to raising the profile of my client in every market in which the company operates.
With an extensive understanding of how to make social media work in the business environment, Kate’s enthusiastic, can-do approach has made her a valuable member of the marketing team.
