Simone Castello, blogger & strategist

FROM JOURNALISM TO DIGITAL MARKETING

I'm a digital marketing consultant based in Cambridge, UK. Prior to setting up my own website in 2008, I worked as a contractor in London for Bauer, BBC Worldwide, Hachette, Haymarket, Hearst, IPC Media, News Corp, Trinity Mirror and several other book and magazine publishers.

I am passionate about startups and SMEs. I have been scaling content marketing and social media strategies adopted by large enterprises to fit the scope and budget of small businesses. I have helped SMEs, startups and charities to optimise their digital presence since 2008.

I am a sole trader, with so many arrows to my bow that hobbies and work often mingle. For instance, I have set up a number of blogs since 2005 to share my interests and raise awareness of good causes. I work from home for remote jobs and as inhouse contractor in Cambridge.

I offer my skills pro bono to various charities and non-profit organisations. I believe in giving back to the community.
