Julie at Plumb Digital


I’m Julie and I’m the founder of Plumb Digital.

I’m an award winning digital strategist and in the top 50 Digital Women to Watch in 2022 and the 40 Digital Women to Watch in 2020.

I’ve been living and breathing the online world for more than 25 years.

I’m a bit like a digital plumber and love to find the best way to make your business shine online!

I didn’t realise it at the time, but apparently I was a bit of a trailblazer for women in IT and started in the 80s working in a ‘computer room’ as the only woman. 

My big claim to fame is that I built one of the first 23,500 websites in the world – and to put that in context, there are now around 2 billion website worldwide!

Before launching Plumb Digital I worked with some big brands, such as:

  • B2B Ecommerce Manager at Punch Taverns
  • Head of Web at  Nottingham Trent University
  • Ericsson UK Intranet Manager
  • Capital One UK Intranet Manager
  • E-commerce Programme Manager at Alliance & Leicester

I’ve got an MSc in Networked Information Engineering (doesn’t that sound fancy?), an Advanced Diploma in Strategic Social Media Marketing and a Facebook Ads qualification from the UK’s leading expert, Emma Van Heusen. I am a life-long learner and sometimes wonder if it’s more of an addiction – a little like my obsession with reading, especially post-apocalytic fiction!

I would recommend Julie as a coach to anyone seeking to enhance their digital reach and return on investment.”

So, enough about me, what about Plumb Digital?

Well, I started Plumb Digital after my daughter started Reception in 2018. I couldn’t face being that mum begging for an hour off for Sports’ Day. And to be fair, I couldn’t face those suits and high heels!

I started by specialising in paid and organic social media but before long I found myself drawn back to building websites again!

I now mainly build beautiful websites that really show the personality of a brand. |I love to make your brand just glow! I can then help you to market your brand.

It’s mainly me, but I have a small dedicated team of specialised freeelancers that help me out from time to time.

So, in a nuthell, I can help to get your brand visible and help you get the results you need, by getting you noticed by potential customers. And when they see you, your brand will resonate with them.
