You can hire me for a one-off project or as your long-term in-house Marketing Manager.
I’m great at keeping you motivated, getting things done, doing what you hate doing and ensuring the best bang for your hard-earned buck.
Marketing Brainstorm Session
It all starts here. And could stop here too if that’s all you want to do – no problem. I always like to begin with a marketing brainstorm session. It’s a process I have developed and used successfully for many years during my time as a small business mentor for local government and when working with private clients. In 1 ½ hours we will discuss what you want to achieve from your marketing and how best to achieve it. I can help uncover your unique story, who your target audiences are and how best to reach them. We can even work out which promotional channels are best for you depending on your abilities and resources – both time and money-wise. From there we can either carry on working together – with me helping you to implement those ideas; or you go on your merry way in the knowledge that you are moving forward in the right direction. $100 for a one on one session where you get to take advantage of 25 years of marketing experience.
For one-off projects it’s best to give me an idea of how much you would like to spend and I can work with you to decide what we can achieve within that budget. If you have absolutely no idea where to start I can give you guidance. I work on an hourly rate or within a set budget and estimate how much time I’ll need in order to achieve your objectives. A great way to start is with my legendary (ahem) marketing brainstorm session (as above – you’ll love it).
Some of you may be happy to undertake the marketing work yourself but just need someone to make sure you are on the right track or to bounce ideas off. As your marketing coach we could establish a marketing action plan together and then have fortnightly catch ups to ensure things are moving forward. And I’m always at the end of a phone so you can check you’re on track. This works really well for people who have a tendency to procrastinate or who work better to deadlines!
Ongoing support – your in-house Marketing Manager
Often known as ‘being on retainer’, this is a longer term contract where I develop and implement a full marketing strategy for you. By hiring me for a minimum of 3 months and 2 hours a week you can benefit from a reduced hourly rate, free weekly catch ups and the assurance that I am always thinking of ways to promote you and your services.
I’m not a designer – but I know some good ones. I can liaise with them on your behalf to get things designed and print-ready. I’m not a web designer – but I also know good ones of those. I know some basic web design and am learning more and more every day but I always think it’s best to hire a professional to do what they’re best at, to get the best results. Other experts I work with include printers, search engine optimisation gurus, massage therapists….. All the people I work with share my values and are reasonably priced. I don’t clip their ticket or add a percentage onto their invoices as many consultants do.
