How it works
Book a branding session.
Send me a message and we'll book a time to have a free 20 minute discovery call.
We'll chat over a cuppa coffee about you and your business.
This helps me get to know what your plans and goals are, what stage of the business your at, and what marketing approach would be best.
I create a plan & give advice for your digital marketing.
Depending on which package you chose, or which level of support we think you need, I take everything we discussed in the branding session and come up with a digital marketing plan with tailored advice.
This could include a content posting schedule, Canva templates, Instagram improvements or lots of other things.
I tell you what I think you should focus on based on where your business is at.
The next level would be that I take over all the marketing stuff for you. This would include website design, social media management, content creation, basic brand design, and more.
This is very much tailored to your specific business and what's needed.
Implement the branding and advice.
Next, either I implement a branding strategy to your marketing, such as social media management, Facebook Advertising, or a website design, or you do it yourself based on the plan I created.
This is an ongoing process of course, as business is a constantly evolving landscape and so is the digital world.
It's important to keep track of what's working and what isn't, and make changes to your strategy accordingly.
Kia Ora, I’m Jade! I'm 21 years old and I live in Matata in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.
I grew up in a VERY small town in Vermont, in the United States, but I moved to NZ when I was 11 (Dads a kiwi, Mums American).
Jade Steel Creative has existed for nearly three years now, and I could not be happier with how it's going. My parents have always been business owners and I grew up surrounded by entrepreneurs and creatives, so I knew I wanted to be self-employed from a very young age.
My creative journey started when my grandfather gave me a DSLR camera for my high school graduation gift. I fell in love with photography and making things look beautiful, and eventually people started enquiring and wanting to hire me.
Fast forward to 2022, when I decided to shift my focus to small and medium businesses, and offering digital marketing & branding support. I'm incredibly passionate about working with businesses and I find website design, social media marketing, and branding to be so fulfilling and enjoyable. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a small business thrive.
I am absolutely over the moon with my job, and so grateful that people appreciate the amount of love and creativity I put into my work.
Getting to meet amazing people at different stages of their journeys & businesses, and helping to tell their stories is the best part of what I do. I cannot wait to see where this business will take me.
Please have a browse through my portfolio, and don't hesitate to send me a message. Whatever you're after, I cannot wait to collaborate with you and create something beautiful.
"I was feeling stuck and overwhelmed with my social media, my business was transforming yet again as they do and I needed some clarity and direction as well as guidance around how social media can work best for me and my business whilst performing effectively and reaching my targeted clientele audience.
Jade helped point me in the right direction in all these areas, she removed the confusion and helped lay everything out in black in white! I now feel like I know more about my business and how social media performs, what I should be posting, and a clean image of my brand!
I highly recommend Jade for anyone that needs social media assistance, she makes it all seem clearer, with her kind and friendly nature and clever overview and suggestions. I am now feeling inspired and educated. "
"Working with Jade has been an absolute pleasure. I have loved her photography and style for a while and decided she would be the best person to design my website and help me with social media. I am delighted with my website and having Jade on hand to help me out has been a blessing. I highly recommend Jade Steel Creative!"
"Jade is full of ideas and creatively offered her support throughout the building stages of our business. She worked cooperatively alongside us to share values, brainstorm imagery, have a photoshoot and design a website. She is a great troubleshooter with a breadth of knowledge in her field. Jade continues to support us as the business grows. We love working with Jade!"
"I hired Jade to get photos for the website of my new business. She did a fantastic job getting photos that look great and meet the brief which we discussed beforehand. She went above and beyond, meeting me in the dark on a freezing mid-winter morning to capture the sunrise, working around another videographer as the morning progressed and a dynamic group of people coming and going. Conditions were challenging to say the least. Her communication before and after the shoot was was outstanding and the photos were edited and ready within 2 weeks of the shoot. Stoked!"

"We just got our family photos back from Jade and we absolutely love them. I don't usually feel too comfortable in front on a camera and so most photos have 'that look', but Jade took such beautiful shots of our family - and it was actually FUN! Great family bonding and a chance to be silly. It is so special to have some family photos of us all together 😍 thanks Jade!"
