In our Savvy Student Spotlight Series, we shine a light on our amazing Savvy Social School Alumni and let them tell their stories.

Today we’re introducing a big supporter of the School, especially during the LinkedIn Jumpstart Challenge, and owner of the Barefoot Design Collective, Jackie Barker.

Jackie and her team (more on them below) are doing what they love to bring peace of mind to the people who need them most–overwhelmed business owners who got in over their heads with DIY design.

What is your name?

What is your business name?

Barefoot Design Collective

What is your website?

Please link to your primary social media platform.

What drew you to the particular services you offer and/or niches that you chose to serve?

At Barefoot Design Collective, we are a bunch of badass, creative women dedicated to helping online businesses build a website and branding that breathes their vibe and appeals to their ideal clients.

We’ve helped lots of online business owners move past the DIY design overwhelm (and time suck) so that they can actually do what makes their hearts sing instead of worrying about their website, graphic design, and branding.

What makes you different from others in the same industry?

At Barefoot Design Collective, we embrace the nomad lifestyle, and we all work remotely from our homes or other fun locations. Homebase is in Coastal NC, and the team is scattered across multiple states from Florida to Washington state.

​​​​​​​​We are here to help business owners heal the world through their work as coaches, speakers, authors, and virtual assistants who support those types of businesses if they're in the Woo-Woo or spiritual/ metaphysical space… even better. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Supporting women, woman-identified, or members of marginalized communities (including BIPOC & LGBTQIA) makes OUR hearts sing. We believe Black lives matter. We believe love is love. We know we have a lot of work to do to heal the world, and it begins with each of us.

What is the one Savvy Social School training or tutorial you wish you had before you started your business?

I love the Social Media Rockstar Framework! Having that before I started my business would have kept me from being so overwhelmed trying to figure out what to post! I love having the 5 pillars to help me with planning my content.

What's one piece of social media advice you'd like to share with the world?

Don't try to be in all the places – go where your ideal client hangs out and get strong and consistent there. Then, if you choose to, add in the other networks.

Jackie, it was great getting to know you, and we here at the School appreciate having someone like you advocating for the Savvy Social School and helping your fellow students reach new heights in their business.
