I was thrilled to oversee a lifestyle photography shoot for the renowned glass artist, Adam Aaronson.

Facebook ads

I don’t need to tell you that Facebook advertising is SUCH a powerful tool for small businesses. With over 50 million people using Facebook in the UK, your audience is on this platform!

I design and run Facebook advertising campaigns that  regularly get well above industry standard click through rates (3% to warm audiences and 1% to cold.)

How? I ensure the ads really ‘speak’ to the target audience using marketing insights, expert copy and eye catching creative. 

From Clients

I’m thrilled to have had wonderful feedback from people I’ve worked with. Here’s a taster…

“Don’t even think about Facebook advertising without Paula Gilbert at your side…”

Adam Aaronson

Adam Aaronson Glass Studio

Paula helped us with our Facebook advertising last Christmas. Her creativity, dedication and attention to detail were second to none.

This coupled with her technical knowledge and insights into Facebook and ecommerce enabled us to have a very successful Christmas sales period. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend working with Paula and The Garden Shed Marketing.

Ian Jones

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Paula!  She exceeded my expectations by not only significantly improving my following and engagement on LinkedIn but by also teaching me more about the platform than I ever thought possible.

I cannot recommend Paula’s services enough, she is absolutely fantastic!”

Dr. Phil Allcock

Paula is one of the best investments we have ever made! She offers a 360 context when it comes to positioning… In terms of her output I have never seen anyone who is on message all the time and frankly, she takes my breath away in terms of the impact she has had on our business.”

Jenny Connick

“Paula was the confidence boost, the professional look, and the investment my business needed. Take action – hire her, get what you think you want done – in a fun, professional, and loving way”

Helen Noble, Celebrant of Surrey

“I had a ‘Power Hour’ with Paula earlier this year to help me the marketing of my first solo Exhibition in London. I was bowled over with how much information, ideas and resources Paula came up with. She is very skilled, experienced and easy to work with and a lovely person! Can’t recommend enough!!”
