Inspired Business Marketing provides no-nonsense business marketing and web sites that work. We can: re-design a website (or build a new one), create landing pages for campaigns, advise on SEO and PPC, plan a marketing strategy, write copy, set up blogs, and explain social networking (all so you'll understand it).
My background is very business-focused, and because of this I don't ever 'just' think about marketing, but about a business as a whole. If we're talking pieces of paper, I've got an MBA, and I am a 'Member' of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (MCIM). But what's taught me the most is running my own business, and also working with, and learning from, other successful business owners and entrepreneurs. 'Doing it myself' and learning from real life successes could have saved me a lot of study time with hindsight! I take a broad view of what marketing is, stretching from strategy and planning to promotion and sales. I'm an advocate of direct response marketing (both online and offline) and believe that everything you do should be focused on results - expect no fluff from me! I love to work with business owners who 'get' the importance of marketing and are willing to really focus on what does and doesn't work, even when this means trying something new.
