I'm Shelley Walsh, a digital marketing consultant.

20 years creative & business experience. 10 years online marketing experience. 5 decades of life experience.

Life began offline

I started out over 20 years ago in print and offline marketing and transitioned through design, illustration and publication editing to digital.

The unique combination of skills that I have means I bring creativity, design, writing, marketing and SEO skills together as a digital communicator.

I have a great passion for developing brands online and for getting to the heart of a brand message and broadcasting that to an audience.

Founder of ShellShock

I founded the small agency 10 years ago, producing award-winning creative content for digital PR campaigns and offering content strategy and audits.

ShellShock facilitates agencies to deliver high-quality content to their big brand clients when they lack ability and work directly with large clients.

Speaking & writing

I’ve spoken at Brighton SEO (including the main stage), at local conferences, webinars, podcasts and broadcast a Mozinar.

I’ve been published extensively online over the years, including Moz, Smashing Magazine, Econsultancy and State of Digital.

Currently, I’m an Assistant Editor at Search Engine Journal.


My fascination with psychology, sociology, creativity and cognitive function means that I have a curious mind driven by constant learning and new challenges.

I’m passionate about communication and how to project the right message.

In my spare time, I’m learning Portuguese and if I’m not reading then you can find me in the pool, on the bike or climbing a very large hill early in the morning.
