Free, Professional Marketing Consultancy for East Lothian SMEs

If your small or medium sized business is based in East Lothian, you may well qualify for Free Marketing Consultancy. Most East Lothian SMEs qualify.

Real Marketing has created practical marketing strategies and plans for more than 35 East Lothian SMEs from 2019 to 2022. This popular Expert Help Marketing Consultancy was funded through East Lothian Business Gateway (by ERDF & East Lothian Council).

This valuable programme was delivered by me, Christopher Lamotte, at Real Marketing Transformation.


Companies taking part have ranged from The Premium Bakery, Hurly Burly Brewery, Rohallion, Roseisle Motor Homes, Hamill Decorating Services, Forth Blinds, Greenguage and Watts eBikes, to Venturing Out, Yummikeys, Visorcat, Indigo Pursuit, Jenny Grace Jewellery and RAM (Research & Analysis of Media).

After a comprehensive review of your marketing – including your customers, competitors, products, pricing, website and social media – you’ll have a Strategic Marketing Plan and a practical Marketing Action Plan for the next 6 months for you to execute. About a third of the time is spent discussing your marketing, face-to-face or over Zoom.

It’s gratifying to hear that all of the businesses providing feedback have said that they would definitely recommend this Expert Help Marketing Consultancy programme to other small and medium sized businesses. To qualify, your business must be based in East Lothian.

“The Zoom meetings worked very well indeed. …Christopher gave us a huge amount of help, advice and pointers. It forced me to think very clearly about what we were and weren’t doing! Christopher is a very knowledgeable Marketeer.” (Phil O’Brien, Forth Blinds)

“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)
