Helping You Build Your Brand & Grow Your Business
Does this sound like you? You know more than anyone that your business needs to be constantly marketed to build your brand and improve your sales, but you don't have the time to do it all yourself. You don't want to increase your wage bill just yet, but need someone to help build your business to the next level with great marketing strategy. You also want someone to come up with great ideas to grow your business and then execute them for you.
I've built a successful career out of establishing marketing and communications functions for growing businesses and I can work with you to establish yours. You can use my expertise to grow your business for as long as you need it.
You can use your budget to buy the time of a very experienced Marketing Manager who is a qualified Associate of the Chartered Institute of Marketing. Consultancy is also a cost effective way of getting long-term support in all of the services mentioned here. Retainers start from half a day per week. Get in contact with me if you'd like to know more.
Prices start from £500 per month, based on a weekly retainer.

BRAND & MARKETING STRATEGY
Build a Brand Your Customers Will Love
In a nutshell, brand strategy is taking a look at how your business is perceived by your customers now, and coming up with a plan, with objectives to improve that perception. It's a deep-dive into your vision, your values and your mission. Marketing strategy takes a deep look at your business, customers and goals and involves creating a plan you and your team can work on to grow your business.
Having this knowledge will help you to craft your message to your customers consistenly, so you can produce great marketing messages time and time again. It's also a great way to learn about your business and customers and to plan the next steps in your growth journey.
Your strategy documents can include a brand discovery, SWOT analysis, marketing strategy, brand strategy and positioning, content strategy and digital marketing strategy.
Consultation and strategy creation starts from £500
Conversing With Your Customers Through Writing
I know it can be really hard to write about your business in a way your customers will resonate with you. We weren't all born novelists!
I, however, do love to write. It's one of my passions (the other one is reading, so I guess they go hand-in-hand!)
I have written a lot of stuff over the years for small businesses; press releases, wording for websites, award entries, leaflets, statements, email marketing. The list is quite literally endless. In fact, wherever I've worked I've always been known as 'the Wordsmith!'
I know your super-power is whatever you do in your business, but mine is writing! So if writer's block is getting in your way of getting you out there, get in touch!
Prices start from £75

REVIEW & CRISIS MANAGEMENT
Review and Complaint Management
