Full Marketing Strategy Service For Business Owners And Entrepreneurs.

If you’re a business with a budget of at least £1,000, we’ll work closely together to build a professional marketing strategy to grow your digital presence.

You’ll access my experience working for over 227 brands, from Coca Cola to startups– and my 15 years spent in London ad agencies.

The Anti-Scattergun Method.

Many clients come to me because they feel that they are wasting money or time producing marketing content that isn’t converting. And that’s because they’re using a random, spray and pray approach.

This happens because there’s no tight, simple strategy in place that aims your marketing to the right customers with the right message in the right marketing channels.

That’s why I use The Anti-Scattegun Method to help my clients prevent wasteful, ineffective marketing. It gives them a structure that frees up time, money and gives a laser-focus about how to market smartly.

We’ll take a 10-step journey together. We’ll:

  1. Define the two biggest goals for the next 12 months
  2. Review what’s worked in the past (and what hasn’t)
  3. Prioritise your most profitable audiences (and park the ones who make you little money)
  4. Research into your profitable audiences and create profiles for them
  5. Craft an powerful offer to these profitable audiences
  6. Identify further messaging themes to weave into your marketing later
  7. Handpick the few, key marketing channels to reach these audiences
  8. Map your sales funnel backwards, from the sales stage to the awareness stage – yes planning backwards is a smart idea
  9. List all content you’ll need to create and write outlines for each piece
  10. Write a simple marketing calendar for delivering your content

My philosophy as a business is ‘Be there’. This means I do what I can to help you succeed and we can celebrate your success.

I’m with you on your marketing journey.

Whereas marketing coaches might disappear into the distance after working together, I don’t. I want to be in your corner. That’s why I run live face to face sessions, offer WhatsApp calls and email support – even after the period of working together ends. The simple philosophy of ‘Be There’ is how I run my business. 

“Finding an honest car mechanic is hard to find, but they do exist. Finding an honest marketer who is not focused on the upsell is even harder to find. I’m so glad Simon is an honest marketer.

And at his heart, he really wants to help business owners because he knows how challenging it can be. Simon is focused on what is doable. It also helps that we have a similar sense of humor.

Whenever my brand needs a tuneup, I know I can reach out to Simon and I’ll get some honest feedback, with no upsell. ”

Why people hire me.

I also have a list of marketing qualifications (including the IPA’s Marketing Effectiveness award) and am winner of the YunoJuno Strategist of the Year award, 2019.

Simon is someone who gets a quick intuitive feel for a brief and then immediately interrogates that with his quant and qual nous – I found that to be an impressive and compelling combo and it always got us somewhere that made sense to me very quickly – this is how I love to work!

“I had the pleasure to work with Simon a couple of times over the years… I was impressed with his audience insight and the ability to tailor experiences and messaging for our key audiences. I recently worked with Simon on a new product we are launching, his market insight helped us fine-tune the brand messaging and create a multi-channel launch strategy. Simon is a trusted partner and an expert I always call on.”
Evan Michaels, Founder at Helpful, UK

Snapshot of brands I’ve worked on (small and large).

“We relied on Simon to create a marketing strategy for our business and our new marketing focus. We used his consulting services because of his history in the industry and he really cares about his clients and listens hard to your business challenges. He’ll take a project from understanding your customer in a way that’s hard for any businesses to do when they’re working daily ‘in their business’ – and will deliver a simple, no-fluff strategy and plan of action that can be relied on by me and the team.”
