Our Brand Story

So, how did RIMU Marketing come about?

Our brand story is fairly simply, it was after a conversation with friend of mine who was building her reflexology business. I was ready for a new challenge, I loved marketing, but wanted a flexible working solution to work around my then, young family. My friend needed some help in driving awareness of her business and gaining more clients, Facebook was kind of working but was in the process of changing, so the business that was being generated had dropped hugely. What else could she do with a limited marketing budget? I offered some thoughts and things went from there, I did my first marketing strategy session and the business has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Today, RIMU Marketing’s core ethos is very much about helping those passionate and committed small business owners who are ready to take their business to the next level. It might not be just about getting more clients, driving more revenue or engaging more effectively with their ideal client, their challenge could also be reviewing their brand image or expanding their proposition.

This is where we can help. We work right the way across the marketing mix from building your strategy and website through to implementing your marketing activity.  For us the real reward is the “light bulb moment” when our clients see the marketing work for them, they get the results they are wanting to achieve and they can see their business grow.

Our business has grown too and I am really proud of what we have achieved. We now work with a passionate group of associates who are all experts in their field, enabling us to truly become your one stop shop for your small business marketing needs.

What’s in a name?

Many people ask me where the name “RIMU Marketing” comes from? Rimu is a hard wood from New Zealand. So what is the connection to marketing? I love the design of the inside of the wood, you will see it reflected in our logo and across our website.  When thinking about a business name I wanted something which took the lead from nature.  The tree symbolises the idea of setting strong roots and foundations for our clients, which is mirrored in the work that we do, enabling your business to grow and flourish through successful results focused marketing solutions.

The Environment

Post COVID many have taken the time to reflect on what is important to them and at RIMU Marketing we are no different.  Does the brand they work for reflect their values? Are they satisfied in their work? Do they achieve a good work/ life balance?  These are just some of the questions that people are asking.

The COP Environmental Summit in Glasgow, November 2021 helped us all to reflect a little more on our efforts we are making towards the environment.  As a small business we don't have an office, all of our teams work remotely, so we have a limited carbon footprint.  Where possible we try to be conservative with printing and paper, recycling as we go.  With all of this in mind we wanted to do more.

As part of our 8th birthday celebrations, we pledged to do more. Not only are we going to continue to consider how we support our local communities, we are also going to support the environment and plant some trees.  We are going to start to reflect the ethos of RIMU Marketing and put down solid roots and build a forest.  With this in mind, we have set up an account with Ecologi an organisation that invest in environmental projects and as often as we can this year, we will buy more trees.

Community has always been a core value for us at RIMU Marketing and very much at the heart of what we do.  We have supported charities in a number of ways over the years and plan to continue doing so, whether it is through fund raising, offering free marketing support or even running the Windsor 10k.

One of the greatest achievements was in celebration of RIMU Marketing's 5th birthday. On Thursday 25th April 2019 we held a charity fund raising event in Windsor for Smart Works Reading.  It was an evening of celebration, networking, bubbles and of course cake!  We raised just under £700 for Smart Works Reading to help their very worthy cause.  To read more about what happen click here.  More recently in September 2023, our founder Sophie ran the Windsor 10k and raised an amasing £1,000 for The Baby Bank, a local charity, based in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

We are always looking for new ways in which we can support our local business community, if you are a charity and would like some help then please click here to get in touch.
