Why Zest?
It was time for something fresh!

Small enough to deliver a personal service; big enough to deliver a range of expertise.

My name is Debbie Jacobs and I set up Zest Marketing in 2020 to work with scale-up and SME businesses that needed marketing consultancy and services in one place such as strategy, design, branding, web development and content creation.  

Zest is a marketing agency offering three distinct services and packages:


  • Marketing Strategy 

  • Marketing Content  

  • Virtual Marketing Director/Marketing Lead support

With over 20 years experience in marketing, both client and agency side  I can see things from both angles. 



And me?

Having headed up the marketing function for a range of businesses over the past 25 years I have managed the strategy, the marketing plan and the implementation,


As a Director of corporate accounts in a number of marketing agencies, I managed client marketing campaigns and developed initiatives to drive sales.


Who are we?

We are a great bunch of professionals and we create wonderful things when we put our heads together.  Our expertise covers graphic design, web development and copywriting. Not to mention the wonderful photographers and videographers we bring in when the client needs some inspiring images or fantastic footage.

If you want a marketing expert to work alongside you as your Marketing Director/Lead, or you need a clear marketing strategy, that is where I come in.  If you are looking for various content packages to include website content, social media management, blog content or other marketing collateral, we will deliver as a team.  Every project is managed by me no matter how many of my associates are involved.

Who do we work with?

We work with scale-up small and medium-sized businesses across the UK. 

We work with B2B and B2C businesses in numerous sectors including the independent education, charity, lifestyle and financial sectors.
