Jon Reed

Hello. I’m Jon Reed, a writer, lecturer, publisher and social media consultant – and the founder of Reed Media.

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 offer social media management, training, consultancy and content creation. I’ve run a lot of workshops and in-house training in digital and social media marketing – currently including a one-day workshop on Pay-Per-Click Marketing for Publishers. I also guest lecture on publishing and digital media at several universities, and have run a series of Guardian Masterclasses on social media marketing for authors.

Many of my clients are publishers. I previously worked in publishing for 10 years, including as publishing director for McGraw-Hill. I run the blog Publishing Talk, which is aimed at new and aspiring authors, and I’m running a writers’ conference on How to Get Published in London on 9th February 2019. And I’m an author myself: I wrote Get Up to Speed with Online Marketing (2e, Pearson Business, 2013) – and I’m always trying to find more time for my own writing. That includes fiction these days. I’ve co-written a screenplay, am working on a novel, and am represented by Curtis Brown.

In addition to training and consultancy, I now also offer social media management: creating social media content for and managing your social media channels, such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. So if you’re struggling to maintain a social media presence, I can help. Get in touch to find out more.



  • Thank you so much for coming along to our conference and for your fantastic session. It sent people home, buzzing with ideas as to what they need to do next, which is exactly what we need for a conference session.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • I hired Jon to deliver an in-house video production training course to 10 marketing and comms colleagues. His training method is practical and he delivered a really clear session that has since proved to be hugely beneficial to the company.

  • 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.
