Jess Sims

PR & Marketing Consultant - Be More Hive

Jess has spent the last decade working with global and British brands, both in-house and agency side, helping to build their names within the UK’s media landscape.

She spent almost 5 years building the UK presence of globally renowned furniture retailer, West Elm, overseeing the opening in the UK and growing its presence through an impressive strategy that encompassed brand partnerships, influencer marketing, an ever-engaging event schedule, savvy PR placement and carefully developed social content.

She left corporate life at the tail end of 2017 to start her own consultancy, Jess Does. Jess Does works with brands, bloggers/influencers and small or just-launched businesses to provide them with all the tools they need to get people talking about them.

A born-and-bred Londoner, Jess is a big foodie and feels most at home in the kitchen. Don’t get her on the topic of gin or cheese – she’s master of both and will chew your ear off for hours about her love for them both. As a Tooting resident, she’s a big fan of SW London’s food and drink scene.

Jess co-founded Be More Hive with Kate Baxter to improve the communication and relationship between brands and bloggers.

At Blogtacular you can join Jess and Kate for a workshop on defining your blog’s persona to attract brands.

  • Four years ago today Joy Cho gave the first keynote at the first Blogtacular. We’ve come a long way since our founders opened the doors on that inaugural event. We’re so proud to be the catalyst in the creativity and businesses of so many people who constantly inspire us. Looking forward to opening the doors on our fifth conference next month! Will you be there? #blogtacular

Today’s prompt is insta fam | community | diversity. This is what’s at the heart of Blogtacular’s mission, bring together the community, create new fam and, most importantly, to celebrate and elevate the diversity in our community. We are committed to being a space where people feel at home no matter what they look like, where they’re from or how their body works. Being a place to showcase diverse talent for a diverse audience is our kinda jam.
