UPCOMING MARKETING MASTERY MEETUPS

Our Marketing Mastery Meetups are two-hour power sessions for groups of ten. They take on a different marketing topic every week and after an hour’s marketing advice, founder Clare Martin will take questions from the group about any aspects of marketing you may have. It’s also an opportunity to network with other like-minded businesses over a tea/coffee and cake.

What our clients say

See what we’re up to on Instagram
  • @jodiebrandman wanted her website redesigned to make it look and feel more modern. She also wanted her packages updated and search engine optimisation implemented to improve her presence in Google. We took the colour accents from her logo and used two clean, contrasting fonts, with lots of white space to give an airy feel. .One of Jodie's requests was that she would be able to change things on her website herself, whether that was adding blogs, new pages or changing the text. As we offer an hour's free training for all website packages, plus a ticketing system should Jodie need to change anything beyond her skills, we can do so in a timely manner. .We also offer service and maintenance packages for any WordPress website, including keeping the plugins, theme and core WordPress up to date, daily backups and security monitoring to make sure the website is running as smoothly as possible. . . . .#brand #branding #logo #theme #Wordpress #WP #service #maintenance #plugins #backups #security #modern #clean #contrasting #blog #text #digitalmarketing #digital #b2bmarketing #b2cmarketing #b2b #b2c #marketing #pr #smallbusiness #smallbusinesses #essexmarketing #marketinginessex #smallbusinessmarketing #entrepreneur
  • I often add an overlay to images in sliders and on-page to make the text standout better. If you don't want to make an image darker with light text or light with dark text, find another image that doesn't have a lot of tonal variation and is either very light or dark to start with.

Your clients/customers will thank you. .

.Don’t make your users guess or struggle with what you’re trying to say. For example if you use words over images, make sure the contrast is strong enough that they can still easily scan!
.
If you’re not doing this then I guarantee your customers won’t be hanging around to try and figure out what an important element says!

Reposted from @camilla_bevington_marketing (@get_regrann) -  Taking your own photos for Instagram doesn't have to be time consuming or stressful. There are SO many image and photo options available to you when curating your Instagram feeds - whether that's taking your own, using image libraries, 'regramming' and more.
.
Along with @essexmarketing and @photography_by_petra we will be covering off all things photography and image options at my next workshop - Sunday 15th September in Chalkwell. We'll even get you practising and perfecting a 'flatlay'.
.
Our new workshop format includes a mix of tutorials AND practical sessions, ensuring you will learn new tools and feel ready to perfect your Instagram grids whilst keeping on brand for your business.

  • Your story is what  makes you and your business unique.
.
Reposted from @organicallyepic (@get_regrann) -  Before children one of my favourite past times was sitting, just sitting in a cafe or restaurant and watching the world go by.  Watching people and wondering what their lives were like, their stories.
.
When I would get up before the sunrise and walk to the station to get the train into London to get to work I'd look at all the house's I'd walk past wondering what their inhabitants live were like.  What their stories were.  Then I'd get on the train, where no one would talk to each other and everyone was invariably miserable and tired.  More people, more stories.
.
I still do this (no the working in London part) but it's not quite so leisurely, I may be sitting in traffic on the way to work or the school run, looking at people on the bus opposite and I think, I wonder where you're going, what are you doing?
.
My daughter does it too with me now.
.
Everyone going about their busy day, none the wiser to anyone really around them yet we are all connected somehow.
.
I love to hear about peoples lives, their stories, their triumphs, their highs, their inevitable lows.  Supporting where I can when I can.
.
What's your story - tell us a bit about yourself below - just a snippet so we can know you better.  Lets not all be ships passing in the night worried to talk to each other.

  • Liz Sharpe wanted to revamp the Live Your Life Therapies brand, keeping the hot air balloon theme, but bringing it more up to date.
.
We chose to use the bright orange and couple it with navy blue to give a sophisticated feel. The fonts we chose are more uniform and modern, designed to attract her ideal clients.
