"Pooh began to feel a little more comfortable, because when you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you, is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at you."
I love that quote
It perfectly sums up how a lot of people feel when they come to me for help with their marketing. Not that they have Very Little Brain, but because they have an idea inside of them, and yet struggle to know how to bring it to life and get other people excited about it.
If your expertise lies in what you do, let me help you to package it and put it out into your marketplace to attract the people you want to do business with.
My expertise is marketing. I've been immersed in it for over 20 years, always learning, always working with the latest trends, whilst not losing sight of where traditional techniques still play a vital role.
How I can help your business
After a career in corporate communications, and having spent the past nine years running the communications consultancy Tiger Mouth, working with entrepreneurs and corporate organisations, I now focus entirely on start-ups and small businesses with big ambitions.
Recognising that marketing isn't what you do, I hold your hand and guide you through the maze, that is digital marketing. I can help if you're looking for some marketing advice, want a website to showcase what you do, feel it's time to 'get social', want to build a list and drip feed into the consciousness of your new community through a newsletter, need to create your brand, or some combination. Take a look at my Work With Me page, for more details.
