About Dee Blick

Dee is a chartered marketer with 25 years’ marketing experience. She writes for many business and trade magazines and has won five national awards for generating the highest reader responses to her press releases, adverts and advertorials.

In December 2008 she wrote her first book Powerful Marketing On A Shoestring Budget For Small Businesses, after finding a gap in the market for a small business book that was neither academic nor superficial in its content. Her latest book is The 15 Essential Marketing Masterclasses For Your Small Business. She has also filmed for the BBC as a marketing entrepreneur.

Dee is passionate about the benefits that marketing can bring to a small business and speaks regularly to audiences of all sizes, sharing marketing tips and small business case studies. She is not looking to increase her client base, looking instead to carry the message in her book and through being a guest speaker at small business events.

Dee believes that with a little time, persistence, creativity and marketing know-how, a small business can get incredible results from their marketing - on a shoestring budget.
