Social media is amazing. Such open communication channels provide huge opportunities for businesses in terms of networking, marketing and relationship building. But for many, it’s extremely daunting.

The choice, the time, the seemingly difficult to measure results; it’s all too much for businesses who don’t have huge marketing departments with dedicated social media specialists.

That’s why Promote to Perform exists. We’re here to help simplify social media for small business, ensuring you are able to make the most of the opportunities available to you.

We that every person and every business is different – there is no “one size fits all”. Therefore we tailor our services based around your needs which means, whether it’s group training, one to one coaching or you simply want someone else to manage your on-line presence, there’s always a solution that will suit you.

The Team

The company was started by social media consultant Lucy Cooney back in 2009 and over the following years she has developed a great reputation, not just for her comprehensive knowledge of all things social but also for her capability and success as a trainer and coach.

Those skills have paid off and, as the business has grown, Lucy has surrounded herself with other, like-minded people who have complementary skills and experience including marketing, copywriting, blogging and admin so that she can provide a well-rounded and holistic service to her clients.


Jamie Smith has joined the team in to help with the administrative side of the business. He is here to keep the office running smoothly and supporting Lucy on providing our clients with the best possible service. Jamie has a background in Media, Content and Research and has a knack of finding the right content for the right audience.

So, whether you’re just dipping your toes into the social media ocean or you’re already up to your neck and feeling the pressure – we can help.
