About Me

(I love a good cuppa and a biscuit)

Ding! You had it. That lightbulb moment. The moment you decided to launch a business for yourself and share your amazing offering with the world. 


But, what’s next? Getting online is crucial. Creating an online presence which helps you stand out from the crowd and SELL: it’s make or break for your business dream and Digital Bon Bons is here to bring your digital vision to life.

Summer 2016, I hit my lightbulb moment. I remember it well. I was sitting enjoying a cup of tea, dunking another hobnob, and it happened – I knew I wanted to start a business. A business that will help others thrive online using digital marketing.

Having spent over 10 years immersed in digital marketing for small independent businesses and the corporate world, I’ve seen just how brands can grow thanks to a considered online presence.

I know how precious your time is, I know you’ve got to be as productive as you can while juggling everything else. 

Over the years since launching my business I’ve spoken to several small business owners about their biggest struggles online and how many of them are falling into a social media pothole. They’re pouring every single piece of effort and time into that activity and that activity alone.

I’m here to show you there are other way to boost your business.

Mpower Business Award Finalist 2018
Community Category

I was so thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in the amazing Mpower Business Awards. The awards recognise mums in business who are in their first four years.

To be selected as a finalist in the Community category meant everything because I am a big believer in community and I feel that we can all help each other on our journeys.

Who am I?


I’m Maxine. I live in Kent with my husband Patrick, daughter Ava, two cats – Polly and Tigger and our snake Kaa. I feel like if we add any more pets it will be like Dr Dolittle’s house.

Born and bred Kent dweller I studied Drama and Theatre Studies at University and lived in London for a while but soon the Garden of England called me home.  I’ve always been a highly creative individual whether it’s art, drama, literature and I am thrilled that I do what I do for a living. Digital Marketing is an ever-changing world and one that you can be completely creative in.

Lessons I learnt in 2019

The things I'm going to learn from in 2019   For me, before I can move forward and look at what I want to happen I have to look back. Reflection is really important because if we don’t reflect on what’s gone on how will we know where we want to go? 2019 was quite...
