It’s better for business.

By hiring flexible digital solutions, companies can stay cost-efficient by paying only for what they need. A budget for one full time employee annually can be used to fund a dynamic digital team, with reduced risk. 

It's better for workers.

95% of workers want flexible hours, and 71% of U.S. workers are planning to freelance in 2023. By enabling workers with ownership of the projects they take on, we empower them to own their work-life balance and ultimately produce the best work.

If Digital HQ sounds like the solution you’ve been looking for, let’s talk.

Hi, I’m Hillary Applegate.

I help brands connect with their consumers creatively online so they can accelerate sales and brand growth. 

After working for both brands and agencies, I noticed the universal frustration of brands: staying ahead of the rapid changes that social media drives. Companies are constantly evolving, but in order to stay relevant they need the agility and speed that digital media demands. They can't keep up without a team of experts who understand how it all works--from understanding trends on TikTok to knowing which technology will be useful for their business six months from now.

Launching Social HQ was my response to the declining interest in traditional advertising from consumers, and the evolution into Digital HQ stemmed from that root. Users expect human responses and humanized brands that understand their unique challenges. I wanted to offer a new way for brands and marketers alike to reach their customers through social media today, as well as get ahead of the curve with where they’ll be tomorrow. Our brand partners have gone from frustration with growth to a clear vision for their digital communities, and I can’t wait to help you achieve it, too. 

I live in Austin, TX

Here's a few things about me that you may not know:

with my wonderful husband, cat and dog. (And severely underestimated the exhaustion that is puppy raising !!!)

I’m an Airbnb co-host

of an adorable little home in the historic district of Phoenix and a beautiful cowboy-chic ranch home in Scottsdale (be sure to visit the Phoenix Bungalow and Polk Ranch!)

I’ve always been known as a “documenter”

and make a recap video each year to round up all the videos and moments with family and friends from that year since 2013. It’s my own way of capturing memories and feelings throughout the years, and is a creative outlet I look forward to each year.
