Need a Tech, Design or Marketing Virtual Assistant?

Online business can be absolutely wild and exhausting. You need to do SO much stuff but the good news is you don’t have to do it all on your own.

Which is where your VA comes in handy.

That’s me… Well, perhaps I could be. Keep on reading and let’s see if we would be a good fit for working together on your business.

Hey, I’m Gem, the web, systems, design and planner nerd behind Create & Bloom Strategy + Design. I work with small creative business owners to craft, develop and crystallize an online presence and voice for their products and services.

I have been working in marketing, graphic design and building WordPress websites and integrating systems since 2013 – I am totally self-taught and I love helping creative business owners make their products and services shine.

I’m based in the UK but I am very happy to work with clients all over the world.

Here are some examples of what I do for my clients:

• Turning Live Trainings into courses.
• Website maintenance + updates
• Sales page design
• Membership site design & management
• Social Media Design & Management
• Graphic design for web and print
• Email list marketing & maintenance
• Launch buddy support
• Online course setup
• PDF workbook design for email marketing and online courses
• Lead magnet design & automation setup
• SEO keyword research
• Course/program admin & community management
• Webinar/live training techy support
• Tripwire page design and systems setup
• and list goes on.

Working with Gemma has changed my business so much! I feel really supported, I’m actually consistent on social media and I just feel like I have so much more capacity for other things now.

She is just so efficient and organised, I love how quickly she gets stuff done and how she can spot any other things I might not have thought of. I also love that she has such a wide range of skills and can turn her hand to using all of the tech stuff I have in place in my business.

    I don’t even know where to start! I’ve felt SO stuck for months and months now, like I haven’t been able to make progress in my own business and suddenly that has all changed! It’s like the capacity to get things done has 10x’d. I love having you to chat with about business ideas, as well as just life stuff. I love that you have ideas, suggestions and knowledge that makes my life so much easier. Being able to say something like, I want to add a tripwire to X and you just get it done is amazing.
