“Really great service that was completely tailored to my business and own personal needs.”
“Christopher really flagged areas that I could improve on that I’d not been very aware of. This was so incredibly useful and gives me another way to really improve on my marketing and ultimately my sales. Hugely beneficial resource for small businesses.” (Elspeth Fawcett, Yummikeys)
“We felt that Christopher listened to us and took account of our understanding and capabilities when it comes to marketing… We learnt about elements of marketing which we’d previously not considered such as building a YouTube channel for videos. There was also very detailed evaluation of our website which included aspects we had never before considered… It is very valuable to see the calendar with very clear targets…” (Louise & Peter McNaught, Hurly Burly Brewery)
“It was so useful to have a fresh pair of expert eyes look at our marketing. We got loads of great ideas from it and a clear action plan to carry them out.” (Mona Hashem, The Premium Bakery)
