Launching JAKEYSTACE in 3.. 2.. 1..
It's been a while in the making, but we're finally here.
Hello! I'm Jake Stacey; chief content creator and general marketing wizard here at JAKEYSTACE. I was going for a stroll one afternoon when I thought of starting this whole freelance thing. You know those random genius thoughts that catch you by surprise with no warning and when you're not expecting it? Yep. It was one of those.
As a student without a job and a bank account being eaten further into with every trip to the local pub, I considered ways of making money. Maybe I could stack shelves at Tesco through the night or learn to cycle and become a Deliveroo rider. To the average moneyless student these would be a no-brainer, however none of it really appealed to me.
I wanted to channel my passion for food and marketing and turn it into something where I could gain experience in my field, and hopefully monetise my services. The age-old "get a job that you love" comes to mind.. so I decided to make my own. Nothing too serious - just a way of honing my skills to those who could do with them when I had a few hours aside from studying. It's a very simple idea, which with a bit of effort was realistically achievable.
I've carried out freelance work of this kind before, but all I needed was a face for my book cover. I created a website, some social media pages and curated some content and I was away! The beauty of digital marketing is that it's digital - which means I can work from wherever I want. I'm my own boss, so I can also work whenever I want. If this is something that appeals to you, go ahead and try it out too. If I can do it, so can you. No competition - just friendly rivalries!
From my base in Cardiff, I'll be around whenever you need me, so send me an email and we'll get talking.
Take care and enjoy your day!
