Chris Simmance

Owner at Chris Simmance Ltd

London, United Kingdom

The future of Digital Marketing is subject matter experts working on ideal projects to suit their skills, networked with their peers to create centres of excellence for businesses.

I have worked in digital marketing since 2010. I also built a digital agency with offices in both London and Manchester with a core focus on strategy led, results focused SEO and paid media. During this time, I have worked with hundreds of organisations in multiple verticals, all with differing needs; notably IHG, Babylon Health, Jack Wills and Greater London hospitality.

Having built and run multiple teams with contrasting disciplines, I have a talent for seeing the bigger picture and creating actionable strategies that enable teams to deploy result driving activity.

With a change focused mindset I work with industry leaders to help improve digital marketing standards.

I am also a judge for many industry awards such as the EU, UK and eCommerce awards as well as contributes to digital marketing publications.

I provide strategic coaching and consulting support without the BS.

Over the last decade, I have been fortunate enough to work with some exceptional clients. I've worked at all levels and been exposed to multiple layers of leadership. Having started, run and sold numerous times over, I've learned the value of listening and asking the right questions.

I embed myself in to your team, listens and ask the right challenging questions. When things become clear, joining the dots between people, concepts, channels and technologies and work with your business to build an intelligent strategy.

My style of coaching people to think critically and build an integrated picture, generates better buy-in, accountability and traction. All translating into a better bottom line, happier teams and customers.

Specialisations: People, leadership, management, strategy, systems and processes.

Benefits: Clear, actionable insight, accountability and a helping hand with strategy execution. Support and construction of required, strategy-lead systems and processes that ultimately lead to business growth, more free time and less stress for the business owner.

Results: Less stress, more money, more time and happier clients and staff.

Outside of the day job I am a Keynote speaker at digital and business events with a primary focus on the Future of Digital.

Marketing Tech News
July 11, 2018
Search engine optimisation (SEO) is not what it used to be. No surprise there, just think of an industry that hasn’t changed over the years. The reason SEO isn’t the same, however, is because the rules and ethics keep changing and are pretty much rewritten every year. It’s not easy to keep up with this and Google like it that way. So, looking at your own website and the results you want to achieve, what gave you a positive return last year may not work at all in 2018.
