“Our company exists to help elevate small businesses’ online presence. We help take care of social media and content marketing so business owners have more time for what they do best in their business.”


Our owner and founder, Hope Linker Jobes, started her social media marketing agency from her couch while working a traditional 9-5 at a local marketing agency. She knew that she didn’t want to spend the rest of her life in a cubicle, and she really wanted to create an innovative and modern agency that specialized in helping her favorite types of businesses: the wedding, beauty, and fashion industries.

So, she fired up her laptop, built a website, and started branding herself around social media, marketing, and business. While her then-boyfriend-now husband was working night shift, she built her own marketing agency in her “free time” and matched her corporate income in less than one year.

Fast forward to today, she has worked one-on-one with hundreds of businesses and undoubtedly helped thousands of people through her valuable social media, blog, and email content. Chic Communications is operated with a team that specializes in social media marketing, email marketing, organic search engine optimization, photography, and digital advertising and has over 24 years of experience.

Whether you’re local to northern Illinois and want to elevate your online presence with in-person support or you’re located across the country, Chic Communications can help you convey your message authentically and strategically and make sure your ideal customers think of YOU next time they need what you have to offer.

We work with new clients on a 3-month basis initially. We have found that 3 months is short enough that it’s not a massive commitment for most business owners but it gives you the opportunity to see what it’s like to invest in high-quality marketing services for your business. On the other hand, 3 months is long enough for us to truly establish some consistency and positive results for
your online presence.

What you need to know

Social Media Management

If the ever-changing algorithms and increasing demand for social media as a business owner is enough to make you want to pull your hair out, we’ve got your back. We’re doing daily research on social media trends, new features, what’s working, and what’s not to ensure that your social media profiles stay up-to-date, innovative, and engaging. We specialize in Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for social media management, which includes content creation, posting, scheduling, and engaging with your online communities.

For our local clients in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, we offer photography as part of our social media management packages. Having your photography and social media outsourced by the same company ensures organization and seamless workflow as the two go hand-in-hand. With the rising importance of video content, this is a regular part of our in-person photography sessions as well.

Social media consulting

Would you like help with your social media, but prefer to manage it in-house? We can set up consultations to help provide clarity to your social media strategy, help you brainstorm your upcoming posts, and help answer any questions you may have in order to stay up-to-date with the social media platforms that are best for your business.

August Schiess, Director of Social Media at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

“Hope is truly incredible at social media strategy, advising, and coaching. I have followed her work for years, and her advice and content are always spot on. During her coaching lectures to my students, she was able to expertly break down broad and complex topics into easy-to-implement tactics that felt empowering, not overwhelming. She knows how important it is to connect the right audience with the right message, and how to do so in ways that are both manageable and fun for the person running the social media accounts. Hope is smart, talented, strategic, and kind, and I would highly recommend her if you're in search of social media coaching.”

"I cannot recommend hope enough"

Madeleine Wolske, Champaign Public Library

“Hope broke down social media marketing and made it accessible, approachable, and entertaining for our library community. Her expertise and skill came across warmly in the presentation and she thoughtfully took the time to answer every question that came in. I really appreciated (and was impressed by) her DIY entrepreneur toolkit for growing your Instagram audience and connecting with your Facebook community. After an Instagram webinar, a patron commented, ‘WOW! I always thought I had to 'keep up with the Jonses' when making posts, with the filters, and layouts, but Hope made me realize that by focusing on authenticity and my passion, easy content ideas will always come to mind and that's what will connect [me] with my audience. I CAN grow my business in ways I didn't think I could and now I have the confidence to do so.’ I cannot recommend Hope enough for businesses and organizations who are looking for an expert social media marketing educator and consultant.”

"There are no words to describe what a blessing Hope is to me and my businesses. Her professionalism, kindness and ability to exceed any and ALL of my expectations are just a few of my favorite things about her. But would say the best thing about working with her, is the friendship that came from it all. If you are looking for a FUN, gorgeous, professional, trendy, loyal and honest social media manager (or literally ANY service this rare gem provides)…look no further. Hope is it."
