👋 Hi, I’m Elaine, the owner of XOmisse (xo·miss·e) 

I design and code for some amazing creatives (like you), publish a fortnightly newsletter and drink a little too much caffeine.  

Currently working on:

🚀 A series of courses to help you start, build and grow your site all by yourself – sign up to the newsletter for more!
✨ A MSc in Digital Marketing Management at the University of Westminster, London.

I’ve been creating content online for over a decade, so trust me – I know how important your blog is!

My mission is to arm you with everything you need to grow your blog or freelance business with confidence. No matter how design-esque or tech-savvy you are!

Ready to leap into full-time, enhance your visitor’s experience and grow your traffic? XOmisse is a development studio that partners with creative individuals and small businesses who are ready to make a great impression online.

I believe a site is more than just a pretty design. It should be organised, thought out and goal-oriented. I understand how important it is to have a site that represents you and shows off what you do best. Our services range from blog design to e-commerce solutions, and primarily focus on the development of clean modern sites for the WordPress and Blogger platforms.

On a tight budget and prefer to design your own blog? You’ll find easy to follow, step-by-step tutorials on the blog and in my newsletter that will show you how to grow your blog. 

So if you’re a content creator looking to step up your game or creative entrepreneur running your own business then I would love to chat with you.

About Elaine Malone

My interest in web development and digital marketing began when I started a personal blog back in 2009. This passion led to me launching XOmisse in May 2013. Through strategic blogging and SEO, I reached over 1 million unique page views within 14 months!

That same year I started writing for Blogosphere (a media company focused on the influencer industry) and interned at a digital marketing and web design agency. After graduating with a BA Hons in Creative Digital Media in 2014, I decided to jump straight into running my own business as a freelance web designer and front-end developer.

In 2016, I moved from Dublin to London to join the Blogosphere team as the Creative Director and Head of Operations working on the print magazine, podcast, events and tech platform. I stepped down from my role at Blogosphere in August 2021 to return to university and study an MSc in Digital Marketing Management.

I’m a learn by doing, sarcastic humoured type who single-handedly keeps Coca-Cola in business. When I’m not working I can be found exploring London with friends, visiting family in Dublin and catching up on the latest TV show.

Features and speaking:

  • My articles feature in over 20 issues of Blogosphere covering topics like social media and influencer marketing
  • I taught DIY Blog Design at Blogtacular in 2015 and SEO in 2018
  • I provided one-on-one advice on the Creative Genius Bar at Blogtacular in 2016 and 2017
  • I’ve contributed articles and ebooks for The Plus Collaborative
  • I created a Glow your SEO training video and checklist for Grow & Glow

Core Values

  • Transparency – I pride myself on complete transparency, and will not recommend anything I don’t believe in.
  • Quality – I am committed to creating beautiful, simple to use, functional sites that focus on your user’s experience.
  • Goal oriented – I work strategically with clients to achieve a goal, instead of delivering cookie cutter solutions.
  • Value relationships – I believe that our work together is a collaboration, which is why I prefer building a long-term relationship with a handful of clients so we can work on growing your business throughout the years.
  • Friendly – My approach is to be helpful and accessible. I want to make sure you understand everything and feel like there are no silly questions. I love seeing you succeed, so I am here to guide you through the tech-side of running a blog or business.

Mission

  • To learn and teach – I want to share everything I know so that my readers can benefit from my experience, but also create a space where my audience can share too. So that we can all grow our online spaces together.
  • To create – I’m dedicated to creating content in one way or another everyday. I want to continue sharing free content that helps others.
  • To empower – I want to empower others, especially womxn, in this industry to build their own space and tackle the tech-side of running a blog or business.
  • To connect – To build an anti-racist, diverse and inclusive community of people who are kind and generous with their knowledge, time and resources and ensuring this is a safe space for everybody.
  • To grow – My mission is to allow you to easily manage your site and content while increasing traffic to your blog and sales in your business through strategic design and SEO services.

I am fully dedicated to supporting Black Lives Matter, pro-choice, LGBTQIA+, anti-bullying and domestic violence. This website, my social media platforms, community groups and email list is a safe and welcoming place for all. If you don’t share my values, then my platforms may not be for you.
