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.

  • There have been a lot of posts about the press release from the CMA this week. Lots of them about ‘new’ influencer posting rules, some of them inaccurate or misleading. Have you heard something that worries you? We’re always happy to share knowledge and point you in the right direction so please ask if you need clarification. 
You know we’re big supporters of following the rules and clearly disclosing at the beginning of posts - it’s the only way to cement our reputation as an industry committed to transparency. But, as with all rules getting to grips with them isn’t always plain sailing. Our podcast episode 36 is a masterclass from the ASA themselves in how to keep your ads, gifts and products clear online. #blogtacular
