Jodie Bennett, Digital Citizens

Business Description


I own Digital Citizens, we specialise in Digital PR (influencers, print and online media relations), Commercial Copywriting (blogs, eDMs, website writing) and Content Marketing (video, social media posts and advertising).

I have worked in PR/Comms for almost 18 years, originally I started out as a magazine journalist when I finished my Communications degree at AUT.

Before I had my two children I was a GM for a large PR agency, I owned and sold an agency, and I also worked for two of the largest media companies in NZ, doing their PR and Comms in-house.

Along the way I held quite senior marketing roles but now that I have kindy pick ups and Fridays off with my little ones I just focus on the marketing aspects I like the most - telling great stories and coming up with clever ideas in the digital space.

A good client fit is really essential for me and I really enjoy working with other medium to large business owners who need expert help sharing their brand with the world. My clients are mainly in the Luxury, Lifestyle and Wellbeing categories and I work with both Australian and NZ media and influencers. 

I am much better at promoting other people so here's a video we made for an award entry that explains us in a nutshell.
