About Chelsey


Chelsey Ritson

Social Media Coach | Founder

“I know I need social media for my business! I have been told that so many times. So I try to post regularly, but I am not sure if I am posting the right stuff or if anyone is even seeing it!” 
I have heard this so many times, from friends, family and clients. People know that in order for them to advance their business in this big online world, they need to be on social media. However, most people don’t even know where to start. That’s where I come in.
My story begins in Mexico, where I set up multiple online businesses, teaching myself about websites and all aspects of digital marketing. When I arrived back to New Zealand at the end of 2018, I joined a digital marketing agency to see what knowledge was missing.
During my time there, I learnt a lot, and not just about digital marketing. I learnt about how some digital marketing companies treat their clients – and I was shocked. The amount that these small NZ businesses were being charged, compared to how much was getting done for them – and how little this company actually cared about their success was enough to motivate me to start my own digital marketing agency. 
While on that journey, I realised it was too broad, and with my knowledge and experience with social media, I decided to start a social media agency. Upon doing research for that, I realised something about this overcrowded market that was missing in our DIY culture – someone who could work alongside business owners to help them understand social media, in order for them to make informed decisions about who does their content for them and what they are doing with their business! 
Thus, Chelsey the Social Media Coach was born! 
It is and always has been a core part of what I do to ensure that business owners understand where their money is going on social media, so they don’t get ripped off. This is why I work with both business owners who are doing their social media themselves, as well as businesses who already work or are considering working with an agency. There are reputable digital/social media marketing agencies out there. You have the power to choose the right one for you or do it yourself, and it’s up to me to give you the knowledge and understanding to enable you to do so.
