I was unsure about working with someone to help with my social media. I thought I may not understand what they were doing, or they might take over and the content not represent my voice. I need not have worried because when I started working with Deborah Hoult from Aqua Business Support I felt immediately at ease, heard and understood. Deborah explained things simply and effectively and used the information I provided to build a robust and effective campaign. This meant that my voice, my words were reaching an ever widening circle of people and interest in me and my service grew.
I would highly recommend Deborah. She is knowledgeable, approachable, creative and effective. An asset to any therapy business.

I have been working with Deborah for the last 3 months and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I provided her with a copy of my book Empowering Employee Engagement and asked her to read it and then create blogs & posts which could be used on my website and social media. It was important that whoever was reading the post knew it was me from the words and the style of the writing.
Posts have gone out every week and the engagement has been fantastic, I have been able to engage with people and explore what resonated with them which has given me fabulous insight into what my ideal client needs. By having those conversations I have had more than a return on investment and I have been able to do more of what I love.
When you are in business you need to play to your strengths and if you don’t possess the skills that you need then it’s vital that you find the right person who has the skills. I can honestly say Deborah is that person and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to other coaches. I am proud to say she is part of my team and I don’t know what I did without her!

Deborah has been managing my social media posting since the end of August 21. She writes posts so skilfully that I can hear my voice coming through. It great to see the level of engagement from posts increase. It’s a relief to me to know that posts are going out regularly which are relevant and engaging. Something which I tried to do myself but failed due to busyness of work. I can thoroughly recommend Deborah. She takes time to get to know you and your business.

 I worked with Deborah on her 5 weeks to social media success workshop. I was at a point with my social media where I felt lost and had stopped scheduling posts as I didn’t know what I wanted to say.

Deborah’s course was well laid out into sections that helped me to see that I needed to re-evaluate my social media from its very beginnings. The weekly sessions took me logically through the tasks I needed to undertake in order to get back to regular scheduling, and more importantly, using content that was relevant and engaging for my existing audience, and to increase my engagement and obtain new followers. Deborah’s approach using psychology driven techniques really resonated with me and has helped me to gain a deeper understanding of my aims for my social media. I finished the workshops with a plan for using social media to launching my new service and am happy to say that I have returned to using my social media regularly with a purpose that hasn’t been with me for some time.

I would definitely recommend Deborah to anyone looking for clear and well thought out help for their social media

For the last six months Deborah has been curating and posting my Social Media posts. She has been very efficient, made beautiful posts and always kind and courteous to deal with. Her posts have been admired by others in marketing and one client told me directly they had returned to do a piece of family work with me as a result of seeing a FB post.

Others have it in the background of their awareness and like and comment so I know the seeds are being sown and tended regularly in my business and clients tell me they like what they see. I know I am more in the forefront of their awareness, and they are open and curious about my services.

Having Deborah look after this for me, was a huge help whilst I was dealing with a personal issue which was sapping my energy. This enabled me to carry on the face to face delivery of my service with clients, knowing that I still had a very professional presence on social media. Thank you so much Deborah.

I did a 5 week to social media success course with Deborah over zoom. The lessons were very helpful as I was able to note down numerous useful tips in my notebook that I have been starting to implement on our Facebook posts. These include making our content more personalised, the use of emojipedia and basing our content around our current blogs. I would highly recommend Deborah for anyone looking to improve their social media output.

I’ve loved having Deborah manage my social media for the last few months. It was quite a big decision for me to let someone else get involved with it but it was definitely the right one. By having Deborah take care of my main posts it’s enabled me to add in as and when I’ve felt inspired to do so and to focus my energy in other ways. Knowing that my social media is taken care of saves me a job on Sunday trying to create content for the week ahead! It’s great seeing how Deborah uses my content from various resources to create posts that I wouldn’t have thought of – so it’s still reflects me and what I do but I don’t have to worry about it. Thank you!”

Sense of Direction

I have always planned to do social media posts for my business but as it is something I a not good at I shied away from taking action.
Deb was recommended to me. I find Deb very personable and professional. She shows a great interest in my business. The posts she collates are just how
I would want them to be written. Deb has a clear monthly plan for my posts which we discuss in our monthly meeting.
I find the planning meetings useful as it helps me to identify different blogs that can be used for future posts. Working with Deb has taken the frustration out of marketing my business.

Deborah has been handling our Facebook advertising for a number of weeks now. We have seen a noticeable increase in traffic to our business page and can trace at least one new booking to the advertising Deborah has put into place for us. With Deborah knowing the ins and outs of Facebook and how to get the best out of our marketing spend, it leaves me free to get on with other important work. She is proactive, has some great ideas and is very easy to deal with. We’ll definitely be doing some more Facebook advertising with her.”

Aqua business support has been supporting the social media of my business brilliantly for several months and I am really happy with the result. Deb really listens and takes note of the brief given, but has great initiative, which requires little input from me and allows me to get on with the other 4657 jobs involved in running a small business. After our initial consultation and ongoing check-ins, Deb has produced really high-quality content that creates interaction on my social media channels.

Highly recommended!

Deborah is definitely a secret weapon! I love that I don’t have to think about posting on social media every day, as Deb takes care of this for me, freeing my time for the add hoc and high content posts.

Highly recommend. She’s amazing.

Over the last 3 months I have been working closely with Deborah on my social media posts for my business – Train with Suzy. I have found Deborah to be highly professional and very knowledgeable in her field. I strongly recommend Deborah 100% for all your social media needs.

Deb was recommended to me by a friend. She has proved invaluable in helping me set up daily posts for my Facebook group Teachers Revitalised.

She is efficient, courteous, and supportive. What more could anyone wish for?

I attended on online social media workshop with Deborah, and came away with lots of ideas for posts and how to make my business social media better, how often to post and which platforms I should be looking at. Highly recommended! Thank you Deborah

Can’t speak highly enough of Deborah and the work she is doing with me on my Social Media.
I didn’t really want to let go of my posting as I was fearful that someone else wouldn’t “get” what I do, but she has gone to great lengths to ensure she does.
We work together and focus on strategy and that frees me up to be more creative with what we are doing through all the Social Media channels – leaving the churn to her.
The continual communication, analysis of responses and regular reviews mean we are always progressing.
Very happy with Aqua and the great service they offer 😁

I have been working with Deborah since May 2018 – we set an ambitious target to manage my social media posts for 6 months. I am really pleased to report that the project has progressed really well, with only a couple of months left to go.

I am delighted with the support that Deborah has provided – her attention to detail, organisation and “client-management” skills are superb. The peace of mind that I have had through knowing the Deborah has everything in hand has been incredibly valuable. The icing on the cake is that the challenge of setting up daily social media posts ona rolling 2 week programme has been fully met. Two huge big ticks in boxes!

I have no hesitation in recommending Aqua Business Support if you are looking for spot on management, consistency and peace of mind.

I have been using Deborah’s business support service for twelve months now.  The service has provided excellent support by providing word processing and preparation of report templates. This has freed valuable time for me to invest in report writing and analysis rather than routine tasks.

The service offered by Aqua Business Support has always been timely, flexible and responsive to my needs and has been of the highest quality.

Deborah has been a huge support with the work she has carried out for the MOTUS Women Entrepreneurs Network in North Derbyshire, on a weekly basis, interviewing all our members for their Featured Members in the Spotlight posts and managing the diary for them to ensure we have them in time for their scheduled slots. Juggling the running of 3 business and having to prioritise my time and work, meant that I needed to outsource this part of running the Network and Deborah was the first Virtual Assistant I thought of, as I know how well organised she is and is a true professional in everything she does. I would highly recommend Deborah, she’s a whizz at diary and time management and I can highly recommend her for project management work. Thank you for all your help supporting the MOTUS Women Entrepreneurs Network.

Amanda McConnell

I was introduced to Deborah through a mutual friend and was immediately impressed by her can-do attitude and professionalism, both over Skype and in-person.

Deborah took it upon herself to understand the bigger picture relating to my business as well as the individual research task I assigned to her. Deborah diligently completed the extensive research for me which was both in line with the brief and returned in an easy-to-read format, well within the timeframe set. This meant that Deborah drew on her own experience in project management and was able to add value with finesse and ease.

I would happily work with Deborah again and know she will remain a true asset to all clients she goes on to support.

Victoria Tretis

Having worked with Deborah on quite a number of projects now, I can honestly say I don't know what we would do without her! Deborah is great on timescales and concise on feedback which is very important, especially when it's a clients' feedback for their branding. We will often find ourselves on the same page.

All projects have always been completed on time, sometimes even quicker, which is a bonus!

Deborah has a positive vibe, is absolutely brilliant with all types of clients and works very well as part of a team, she is very organised, professional and you can depend on her to get the job done...properly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah further.

Gurpreet Dhanjal

Creative Director, Ampersans Design Limited

Deb is fantastic to work with – every project we’ve been involved in together she’s been the lynchpin of the team, making sure projects run smoothly, clients’ expectations are met (or exceeded!), and everyone involved knows exactly what needs to be done and when.

She’s professional, thorough, and dedicated to getting the best results for everyone involved – not always an easy task, but Deb manages it every time.

As well as being highly effective in terms of the professional and process side of a project, she’s lovely to work with on a personal level, which really makes a difference to all involved.


Emily Fowler


Deborah worked for me as a Project Co-ordinator during 2015/16. She is highly trustworthy and hardworking I always found Deborah to be creative in the way she worked in order to be as efficient as possible. With great IT skills across Word/Excel/ Powerpoint etc, she could be relied upon to just 'get on with it' and produce the required work. She is also adept at managing social media accounts.
I would highly recommend Deb to support a business or project.

Laura Mullane

Business Development Manager, Core Assets

Deborah’s highly professional approach comes over very well, both in person and on the telephone, and she is very attentive to detail meanwhile being efficient at whatever task she is given.

If your organisation needs a reliable, professional project manager, I would not hesitate to recommend Deborah Hoult.

Alex Calinov

Having worked with Deb for a number of years I’d be happy to recommend her to other companies. Deb is both hardworking and efficient, her customer service skills are great and she’s able to undertake a multitude of administrative tasks to a high standard.

Deborah is a highly motivated individual. Her organisational skills and attention to detail rank highly within her skill set. Deborah manages her time efficiently and always meets imposed deadlines. I would highly recommend her services!
Cheryl Musgrove

Deborah is efficient and reliable and her work is always delivered on time.

She has wide ranging administration and organisational skills that are really useful in a virtual assistant.

Sally Melbourne

CEO, Core Assets Children's Services

Deborah’s organisation skills and attention to detail proved to be worth every penny. Deborah identified several payment issues within my accounts, resulting in an eventual monthly saving and a refund due to an error by my utility company.

Deborah provides the ideal solution for me as a sole trader – dealing ably each month with my accounting and preparing everything for self-assessment in a timely manner. I would not hesitate in recommending her administrative skills in supporting other sole traders and small businesses.
