I am a freelance marketing consultant with significant travel and leisure marketing experience within blue chip organisations. More recently since setting up Rimu Marketing I have worked with a number of different small businesses across broad range of industries, from a travel agent, an IT company, a boutique hotel, interior designers, beautician, lifestyle coaches, even a canine massage therapist. Every business is different. In my experience the fundamental element to a successful marketing campaign is that the business owner is committed, engaged and part of the journey.
On a personal note, I have a passion for all sports including horse riding, running, tennis and netball. I love creative design, travelling and working with children. I am also a volunteer as a school governor at a local first school.
I am a current Chartered Marketer (MCIM) and member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing with a postgraduate diploma.
Having been in the graphic design industry for over 20 years I have gained a vast experience working with many different industries; bringing an innovative approach to all of my graphic projects and producing consistently high quality designs for businesses large or small, new or established. I always work hard to realise my clients’ vision by creating thoughtful and strategically developed design solutions and am now delighted to be working alongside the team at Rimu Marketing. When I am not at my desk and manage to find some time to relax, I enjoy being in the garden with my chickens.
Web Development, User Experience and SEO Specialist
After almost two decades in the banking sector as a turnaround specialist in the retail, hospitality, care and property sectors, I left to form Indigo Girl and then Avidmode. Since then, 12 years and counting, I’ve helped clients to grow their businesses online. My expertise is in developing customer-focused strategies enabling clients to reach, engage and convert their ideal audiences into raving fans and customers. I achieve this through a variety of disciplines including research, website information architecture, search engine optimisation, conversion rate optimisation and search engine marketing. Being a data nerd – a requirement of the job – some might consider my pastimes a little boring, but I’m never happier than when I am immersed in learning opportunities, experiencing new cultures and exploring how things work.
