Sophie etc is a Milton Keynes blog covering food & drink, independent businesses, lifestyle, experiences, events and things to do.
I really enjoy collaborating with brands and businesses to create campaigns and content that have a measurable impact on their business. I have seven years of experience in content creation having written for my blog and other publications, as well as writing for B2B technology clients in my previous role. I have both marketing and PR experience and currently work as a social media officer for a local museum.
Throughout my blogging career, I have created bespoke campaigns for both local and national brands including L&Q Homes, Jet2.com, Visit York and Sainsbury’s to name a few. Local businesses that I have worked with include Olé Tapas Bar, French Affaire, Nonna’s and Oh My Cakery. I am heavily involved in the local food & drink scene and was a judge for the Chef of the Year category for MK Food & Leisure Awards 2018.
I am also available for social media and blogging workshop sessions, public speaking opportunities and content creation services. I have spoken at The Marketing Meetup MK on the topic of Micro-influencers.
Sophie was a joy to work with. We collaborated with Sophie to co-host a supper club for press and bloggers and she was enormously helpful during the planning process. A champion of local business, Sophie recommended a number of lovely local companies and brands that we were able to bring into the final event, helping us highlight all that Milton Keynes has to offer and giving the evening a really authentic feel. The final event was a huge success, and Sophie produced beautiful social media content and a brilliant blog post to round the partnership off. We definitely hope to work with Sophie again in the future!
We had the pleasure to celebrate Sophie’s first supper club. We were so happy that she chose Ole Tapas Bar! It was a fantastic night with a buzzing atmosphere, lovely people, great food and amazing live music. We want to thank Sophie for her hard work in showcasing the best independent restaurants in Milton Keynes as well as connecting people with local businesses.
Sophie has been a long-term supporter of both Saf’s Kitchen and other independent street food vendors in Milton Keynes. As independent businesses, we often rely on word of mouth and social media to get our message out there. Sophie consistently recommends us to her followers which has a direct impact on our business and brand awareness in Milton Keynes and beyond!
Sophie hosted one of her supper clubs with us at The Brasserie. We really enjoyed having Sophie and her guests dine with us. We work with a lot of people and some make the whole process more enjoyable than others – Sophie was very enjoyable to work with! The guests were lovely and the fact that she sold out made a huge impact to our financial targets. We hope to see Sophie’s Supper Club back again soon!
