Coaching the Social Sasquatch

Oliver Jenkins
Director at The Social Sasquatch:

When I started my Digital Marketing business I signed up with Marie for Coaching and I have to say I was a little sceptical at first, but it was a very wise move.  The 1-2-1 support was invaluable, I learnt from Marie's experience of the business world. She helped with marketing myself, accountancy, structure of my business, and most importantly... Not to undersell myself! My clients have got Marie to thank for my (very reasonable) hourly rate now, I had underestimated time needed to run the business and naively thought i would be stacked out from day one! This all needs to be considered and I now have a very competitive, and well thought out pricing structure.

My business is thriving and I owe that in part to the advice and guidance I received in those early days from Marie.  THANK YOU!

 Heads of Coleshill

Sharon contacted me because she wanted to improve her existing web site but when we met she had already decided to go for a new site. She was not sure how many pages or what would be on them so after our initial discussion I made some suggestions.  She was really pleased with the way things were moving forward and was happy with the suggestions I made.  Each month I update her web site and include any special offers or news for her for a small monthly fee, and this is in line with her marketing campaign that we devised during the 'Coaching' hours we spent together.

Web Site Design and Marketing

Your Shop Shustoke

Marie designed the ‘Your Shop Shustoke’ web site in just a couple of weeks and she was careful to put detailed information in about the stock and portray us for what we are - a community store.  She made helpful suggestions and registered our key words with Google search engines.  Every time we need an update we just call and within a few days the site is updated.  Marie has also helped us to promote events and new products by designing leaflets and adverts to match our web site branding and by writing press releases which she sends out to her contacts as part of the service.   Carol

Marketing Consultancy Web Site Design and Coaching


Ian Rix of BPIColeshill.co.uk runs a Cleaning and Janitorial Supplies company.  He had recently taken over the company and wanted to expand it and have a new web site.  I coached Ian and designed his web site.  While designing it I prepared all of the product lists and this saved him time and effort, leaving him free to concentrate on re-launching the business. I designed a leaflet and advert and wrote a press release to help with the launch.
