Meet Sam Bailey, Founder

I’m Sam Bailey (sadly, not the X Factor winner with the fabulous voice – mine is fair to middling at best).

I founded Silver Compass* when my stable job in digital marketing management was unexpectedly outsourced, leaving me to face one of life’s ultimate ‘crossroads’ moments.

Search for another job, or strike out on my own?

I come from a family of small business owners, and I’ve always admired those who have the courage and determination to build a successful company on their own terms.  My decision was an easy one, and I haven’t looked back since.

For me, there’s nothing more inspirational than helping other people’s businesses grow beyond expectation, and I’m lucky that I get the chance to do just that every day, for valued clients I’m proud to have built lasting relationships with.

So you could say that Silver Compass Digital is about a lot more than just digital marketing.  We use social media and online tools effectively and with plenty of skill, but it’s really all about getting to know you and your business, then planning how we can best help you chart your own, individual, course to success.

(*In case you were wondering how I came up with the name ‘Silver Compass’, it came from a good luck charm I was given when I started my business.  You’ve probably guessed by now that said lucky charm was a silver compass).

What do we do?

What do our customers think?

How we work

If you find yourself nodding your head fervently as you read through the following points, we’ll probably work very well together indeed.

  • You value high-quality work
  • You value the integrity and quality of your business
  • You’re honest and straightforward
  • You already have a website
  • You have a marketing budget, but little or no capacity to manage your online marketing in-house

This is because:

  • We produce high-quality work
  • We value the integrity and quality of your business
  • We’re honest and straightforward
  • We specialise in everything post-website
  • We’re able to manage your online marketing on your behalf, on a defined budget you can set yourself

We’ll usually begin by arranging a friendly and no-obligation conversation, either in person or over the phone/Skype, to establish how we might work together.  We’ll establish your needs, explain how we can help you, and give you an idea of what we think that help will cost.

If you’re happy to continue, we’ll then arrange a more formal meeting to plan your digital marketing strategy in more detail – an exciting stage for both of us!

We promise that at no point will we bombard you with technical jargon, or tell you what to do without stopping to listen.

What our customers have to say

“I’ve had at least a third more people sign up for my Facebook page, and even better than that we ran a really successful campaign on my Facebook page over this last month which has meant that I’ve gained three more clients.”


“It’s been a pleasure working with Sam. He put together a clear, concise strategy for reviewing our social media activity which we worked through together. With his help we’ve then implemented a more focused and streamlined approach which has saved us time and effort and more importantly increased our followers by a third.”


“I was introduced to Sam via a mutual contact and am really grateful for that introduction. He is incredibly knowledgeable and patient when explaining how and why things work. He listens carefully to my ramblings about what I want to achieve and then quietly evaluates the best way to construct and deliver. We have been working together for some time now and I am absolutely sure we will continue to do so.”


“Sam helped us create and implement both the style and infrastructure of an innovative online campaign based around a Black Friday offering. This was quite unique in our industry, to say the results exceeded expectations is a real understatement. We now have not only some very happy new members, but a pipeline of potential members going forward. We are simply delighted.”


“I am the proprietor of a family run bespoke decorating company and thought it was about time I got a web site to show clients what I am about, and oh wow did I pick the right person in Sam from Silver Compass Digital. From start to finish he was absolutely fantastic and met all my needs and some. Sam is an honest reliable man to take care of your web needs, I cannot praise him highly enough. Thanks Sam.”


“Working with Sam at Constant Contact was a genuine pleasure… I am very happy to recommend Sam for your digital projects – whether small business or not-for-profit oriented.”


“I’m a family portrait photographer living in London, and needed a professional copy-writer to work closely with to expand my web site. Sam came highly recommended and true enough, he has been a fabulous help to my business. I will go to the ends of the earth to recommend Sam.”


“The amazing Sam Bailey taught me how to make my own videos on google hangout in an hour on Friday. Just went in and made one all by myself today! Plus he’s such a lovely man to know and work with… highly recommend!”


“Sam’s in depth knowledge in social media has been key in helping me develop my online profile for my environmental consulting business. I would recommend Sam to anyone that needs a professional online presence as part of their business marketing.”
