About My Company

From content creation and website design to business development and public relations, Barclay Sims Company is Fredericksburg’s most trusted name in digital marketing.


A Better Business Model

Barclay Sims Company builds up, not out. The ability to work in a variety of creative fields allows me to focus on what works for your business, not on what makes money for mine. Instead of floating from project to project or chasing the next lead, I can focus on keeping my nose to the grindstone for a select number of businesses and organizations.

Many of the companies I work with today are the same as when I started upon entering the industry. Long term relationships allow for the trust, time and risks that are necessary to create real buzz and meaningful momentum.


To help good people do great things with their business, organization or campaign.


Your followers are interested in you. They don't want to see stock photos or quotes from history. They are interested in who you are, what you do, and how you do it.


Businesses must connect with their followers on a level that's deeper than their products, services or industry.


A Little Bit About Me

My name is John Sims and I was born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I’m a self-taught creative. My career in advertising didn’t begin on Fifth Avenue. I don’t have a fancy degree. I’ve never even taken a marketing class. 

Instead, I got my start cold-calling and going door to door selling business memberships for Costco Wholesale. I learned how to give my first public speech, completed my first graphic design project and organized my first sales promotion. It was also here that I discovered a backbone and business model that inspired what would become the business you see today.

I work on the job and over the shoulder, matching the same work pace and ethic as the businesses I work with. The ability to  streamline a clear message across multiple mediums allows my company to successfully compete with marketing agencies with much larger design and development teams. I’d like to think that the results speak for themselves.
