I make marketing simple for small business owners. 


A Month of Marketing 31 tips in July


Hi! I’m Hannah, I help small business owners promote their business, enjoy marketing and increase sales. 

I live in Barry near Cardiff with my partner Tom and Tilly and Bernie the Chocolate Labradors. I’ve been running HI Communications for 5 years now and we also also run Barry Magazine

I love being at the beach with the dogs, I’m rarely without a tea in my hand and I love anything second hand, especially if it came from a car boot sale! 

I've always loved social media and working with small businesses, so starting HI Communications 5 years ago was a no brainer. 


If you're struggling to create social content, write blogs or start a newsletter that gets you new customers and more business, I can help. Whether it's with my Six Week Marketing Fix, a full management package or with a one to one session, I can help you market your business to help you get customers and save you time.

'I've been a florist for over 25 years and feel I know flowers inside out.  When it comes to marketing, websites and social media I sometimes feel overwhelmed and dread the thought of having a go. Thanks to Hannah's Six Week Marketing Fix I now feel more confident and I wish I'd done it years ago!  Hannah's relaxed approach and patience put me at ease and now I can't wait to get started. Highly recommend this course if you like me find marketing daunting.'


'Hannah’s 5 day newsletter fix was brilliant! I had wanted to start a newsletter for a while but had no idea where to even start. This course was easy to follow for complete beginners, it covered aspects (such as legal things) that I would never have even considered before joining, and you are provided with around the clock support from Hannah herself. It was great because you can do the steps at any time by watching the saved videos, so you don’t have to be there for them when they’re live. And you actually have your first newsletter sent by the end of it, along with a supportive group who were doing it alongside you. Great teacher, lovely community and wonderful outcome!'
