I take social media seriously as a genuine business tool and I understand how important your channels are to your brand development. 


Let’s make your social media work harder for your business.


So here I am…

I'm Kathy, mother to one rather feisty 7-year-old (I don't know where she gets it from) living in Downend, Bristol.

When I left school, which is somehow over 20 years ago now, I fell into a career in property.  I worked in various sectors, commercial and residential, letting and selling, I finally worked out it was time for a change in October 2017, when the work no longer, well, worked.

I began training with Digital Mums in Social Media Management, graduating in May 2018.  Part of my training was to run a social media campaign across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  I combined two of my passions and ran a campaign showcasing all things running in Bristol - 'Bristol On The Run'.  See blog for more info.

I've now embarked on a career as a Freelance Social Media Manager.  I take social media seriously as a genuine business tool and I understand how important your channels are to your brand development.

“Whilst we knew we were in danger of being left behind on social media, we didn’t really know where to start. Neither did we have the time to commit to it.

We met with Kathy to discuss where we were with our brand and our objectives for the business going forward. Kathy provided a proposal to set us up on Facebook and Instagram and manage the platforms for six weeks so we could see how our business could look on Social Media.

We have now seen our brand really come to life, so we’ve engaged Kathy to manage both platforms for us on a monthly basis. We’ve also agreed a paid ad spend so we can really push certain areas of the business. She is really on the ball with relevant articles and trending topics and has produced some excellent content from some quite raw material provided by us! We’ve had really positive feedback from our clients, business contacts and potential customers. Kathy is very knowledgeable in her field and has a positive can-do attitude. We know our brand is safe in her hands, leaving us to concentrate on the business.”

“Kathy has done a fantastic job on my Facebook Page and website. She is an absolute gift to work with, her skills are excellent. I recommend her without hesitation, she is definitely 5 stars!”


“Having recently made the leap to go full-time self-employed with my sports and holistic massage business, I really needed to get a plan in place to make the most of my Facebook page.

I met with Kathy for a 90 minute consultancy session. She came very prepared with ideas on how to 'pimp my page', we discussed user personas, content ideas, ways to research and find articles and content to share, tips for creating simple branded graphics, how to engage with my target audience and make the most of paid advertising.

The session was excellent value for money and I now feel adequately prepared to push the business forward.”


“Kathy has been managing our social media channels since February 2019.  Kathy very quickly understood our brand and audience, and creates excellent and consistent content across our platforms.  This has boosted activity and engagement, and helped us achieve recognition in the Travel Weekly Digital Champions of the Year Awards.”


“I was recommended Running Social by a few different people on my local Facebook group. I contacted Kathy the owner who was very helpful. We had our first meeting together last week and I have to say it was definitely worth it. I booked a two hour slot purely because I do not retain information and I am really pleased I did. I gained lots of good advice on Instagram and how to get the most out of my posts etc but most of all on how to use it. Kathy was happy to answer any questions I had and guide me through anything I wasn't sure of. I never realised i could learn so much and definitely helped me and my business. 5 star service thanks Kathy “


“When running a (very) small business, flexibility, and pricing are really key when working with someone to manage my social media. As soon as I spoke to Kathy I knew the way she worked was perfect for me. Many other people I spoke to were very rigid how they worked, and their prices were just impossible to work with.  From day 1 Kathy has been so on the ball with what she's done, and her communication along the way has been 100%.  I can't recommend working with Running Social enough!


“What can I say, Kathy only started helping me with my social media and online presence a few weeks ago and already I can see results! Outstanding, the proof is in the pudding!! Thanks Kathy.“


“Kathy is great to work with - makes things easy and simple to understand( which is a huge deal when you're not very techie!), very straight forward and easy to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kathy and Running Social. Having worked in the past with a couple of "website" people, she was like a breath of fresh air!”

Running is my passion, and during my social media training I created a campaign promoting running in our beautiful city.  I find running the best way to explore, and have created quite a few routes in plotaroute which you are welcome to have a nosey at!

Many you will find start and finish at local cafes...  it's all about the post-run refreshments!
