Jon ReedHello. I’m Jon Reed, a writer and social media consultant.

I’ve worked in social media since its earliest days, and have helped thousands of people use it for marketing through my writing, teaching and consultancy. I previously worked in publishing for 10 years, including as publishing director for McGraw-Hill. I lecture on the MA in Digital Media Management at Birkbeck, and am the author of Get Up to Speed with Online Marketing (Pearson, 2013). I also run Publishing Talk, a content-rich educational, events and membership site for new and emerging authors. Through Reed Media I offer social media content, consultancy and training to publishers, charities and other organizations. I also write and edit web content and blog posts for a wide range of audiences and sectors. Find out more about my work – and client recommendations – on LinkedIn.

Our Clients


  • Jon Reed is brilliant to work with. We publish a New York Times Bestselling author who did not have an online presence and Jon helped grow his Instagram account by 10,000 followers in the space of 12 months. Creating authentic, engaging and impactful content, Jon also developed a very strong, trustworthy relationship with the author who equally hugely appreciated his great work. Jon is extremely reliable, strategic and creative, I would thoroughly recommend him.

    Julia Murday, Associate Communications Director, Penguin Books
  • Jon provided a flexible online training program over seven weeks (via video and online materials). It was a pleasure to work with him in setting up this training for the team, as he was open to ideas and the needs of the team throughout, and approached both the content covered and the delivery method with thoughtfulness and expertise. We have already seen good results, particularly on Instagram where tips from Jon have helped increase followers and engagement.

    Tamara Navaratnam, Head of Marketing, Jessica Kingsley Publishers
  • I highly recommend working with Jon as THE expert on social media in publishing. Jon ‘gets’ publishing and his recommendations are highly practical and realistic. My team refer to the ‘Jon Reed report’ weekly, and follow the tips as part of departmental and account-level strategy, thus increasing our engagement levels across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. He’s also just really easy to work with, approachable and jargon-free!

    Jennifer Howell, Global Academic Marketing Director, Bloomsbury Publishing
  • Jon has worked with us over the past several years on staff trainings, analysis of social media strategy and performance, and recommendations for future growth. His work is thorough, thoughtful, analysis-rich, and specifically geared to our core audience. He balances industry knowledge with social media expertise, and is an invaluable partner to our social media program.

  • Jon provided invaluable training to myself and my marketing colleagues in the MEAC division at Pearson through a one-day digital marketing workshop. His knowledge, pre and post-workshop support as well as understanding of the needs of our business ensured the workshop was a huge success and very inspirational.

    Rachel Wakeley, formerly Pearson Education
  • Jon ran a two-hour workshop for 30+ publishers at the Inpress Digital Conference on social media marketing. The bespoke training session he delivered was perfectly pitched, with a great balance of information, advice and useful tips.

    Rachael Ogden, former Managing Director, InPress

  • Jon is without doubt the most knowledgeable person on social media I know. What's more, he is able to convey that knowledge in a concise, accessible way that is invaluable to non-experts. I would always trust his advice on all things digital.
