Telling your story to win business
Hello and thanks for visiting
So, you are in business and you’ve got great products and services, fantastic customers and clients, a brilliant team and you do great things with charity, community and sponsorship – but you don’t have time to tell anyone.
That’s where we can help
What we do
Get you in the news
Make your message clear
What’s on your channels?
You’ve got channels to broadcast your message online, but what’s the content like? If it’s boring, dated, confusing or sometimes non-existent, then you’ve lost your audience. We can write interesting and engaging content that will build loyalty and make people want to engage with you and your business.
Tell your story
A picture is worth a thousand words
Fail to plan, plan to fail. You will be undertaking lots of marketing activity, but do you have a plan? A simple session can put all your marketing ducks in a row, resulting in a short concise marketing plan which prioritises actions and clearly sets out targets and timings.
Try something a little different. We can compose a poem or limerick to get your message across in a fresh, witty and memorable fashion.

I have worked with Mark for the last nine years and he has always been highly professional, efficient and brings to his writing a sense of fun, engagement and real understanding of the subjects. He always does his research incredibly fully and is never afraid to advise that we might have got the wrong approach to a topic and to come up with creative ideas to help us reach our objectives. I have no hesitation in endorsing him.
CEO, Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce
Mark has been writing press releases to tell our business story for a year now. We’ve had a hectic twelve months as we have moved headquarters and launched two new businesses within our group.
Having a series of press releases has helped keep businesses aware of our developments and we gained a sizeable client from the first one.
Mark manages to get our message across in a succinct, readable style and I would highly recommend him to other businesses.
Director, Moorland Contract Group
"Working with Mark over the last 18 months has drastically improved our marketing and PR. Mark has delivered on a number of projects for us, particularly our 'Young Engineer of the Year'competition, and he has launched our excellent newsletter, 'Metal Press'. Mark's success has led us to employ our own marketing graduate to carry on his work and his handover has been invaluable. I would thoroughly recommend Mark for a long-term engagement or project work."
