I'm a sales, marketing, and SEO specialist. I'm also a copywriter. I have worked in the digital sector for over 20 years. I believe that good planning is pivotal for sales success.
I help start-ups and SMEs devise affordable sales and marketing plans to help them grow. This includes planning strong sales foundations and well thought out sales and marketing strategies (offline and online).
I also help people gain a better understanding of the sales process. In addition, I provide sessions to help people improve their sales skills and their business networking skills. I take a hybrid approach and look at both offline and online sales activity. Often there is an overlap.
My high level of expertise and experience across traditional sales, and the different elements of digital sales, should make me a good choice for those who want to grow via sales and marketing.
Digital is such a complex and competitive area that you need to stand out from the crowd! Getting the right message in front of the right audience is key, as is doing the right form of digital activity at the right time. There is so much digital choice that you can't possibly do everything, but knowing what to do and when is important. This is why working with someone with experience across many different areas of digital can be extremely beneficial.
I have been involved in all sorts of digital development, digital sales and marketing, and digital advertising throughout my 20-year career in the digital sector. I have also held some very senior level SEO/marketing and sales related roles for several well-known brands.
For the past 7 years, I have worked within the small business sector. I have gained a very good understanding of the various sales and marketing challenges faced by SMEs. I also have in-depth knowledge and understanding of most of the different types of sales and marketing opportunities available.
My USP is that I have extensive experience and expertise in lots of different areas of sales, marketing, and digital. I am also an SEO / inbound marketing specialist. This should make me a very good person to speak to in the first instance.
