Sensible marketing for smart people

What is it about marketing that makes people spout a load of old tosh?

You know, and I know that it mostly boils down to common sense, planning and a bit of creative thinking. Yes, it costs money. But doesn't everything that's worth doing right? Yes, specialist skills are involved. But those skills can be either outsourced or learned.

Help is on hand.

The Marketing Agony Column

I'm Jackie Harris. I help businesses just like yours sort out their marketing. I'm a whizz at digital stuff. Old enough to know the good old fashioned basics, and I create tons of creative content.


Dear Jackie...

"My business isn't growing and I don't know what to do next..."

This is a very common problem, you are not alone! I can put my beady eyes on your business, help you work out what to do next. That might involve a bit of troubleshooting, or maybe you need to get a proper grown up marketing plan together. Whatever the problem, I can normally work out what needs to happen and get it sorted. Even if it's not my 'thang', I can point you in the right direction.


Dear Jackie

"I'm drowning in a sea of meaningless clichés, and can't write a sentence without using the word strategic..."

Firstly, STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD, and no-one will get hurt! If you feel you’re suffocating in a quagmire of describing yourself as a ‘one-stop- shop solution provider’,  you need to call me now. I can help you work out your tone of voice, discover the personality of the business, and create new content that makes you stand out. And even more importantly, potential customers will understand what it is you do!

Dear Jackie

"I'm tearing my hair out over my marketing, am I going crazy?"

Obviously I can't vouch for your sanity in clinical terms, but I can tell you that pulling your hair out in chunks is not a good look. The good news is that I have some options where we can do a quick Skype call and I can give you some pointers on where you might be going wrong. It's painless, and it's a lot cheaper than having to buy a good quality wig.

Alternatively, you could learn some new marketing skills....

And I'd be delighted to teach you.
