Free Marketing Consultation Leeds

By: Richard Michie

In September I had a great day at Unity Works helping four people with the marketing of their business. Each person came with a different marketing problem which needed solving.

I figured that businesses in Leeds could benefit from some marketing help too. The good people at Shine, thanks Clare Thompson and Todd Hannula, agreed to let me use their wonderful facilities in Harehills on Monday 13th February.

Update – All the spaces are now full

Sorry you missed out on this date, but If you’d still like a free one hour marketing consultation call me on 07834 197785 or fill in the contact form at the bottom of the post.

Each marketing consultation lasts one hour and we can discuss any issue which you would like help with, it could be a whole marketing strategy, or a particular project you’re having problems with like email marketing, search engine optimisation or social media. Maybe you have some ideas you just want another opinion on.

Whatever it is I’ll give you my honest opinion for free, what you do with it after that is up to you, there’s no obligation at all.

Why do Leeds businesses need marketing help?

A recent report carried out by Lloyds Bank benchmarking the digital maturity of small businesses and charities in the UK found that in the Yorkshire and Humber region 68% of those questioned had invested nothing in digital skills and that 48% didn’t even have a website.

Following a year of turbulence for British businesses and the uncertainty of the Brexit process, companies need to be looking at how they can use the tools they have to hand to help promote their businesses to ensure that, when trading conditions return to some kind of normality, they will have survived and thrived.

There are 5 consultations available for one hour each at Shine in Leeds, on Monday 13th February. Sessions start at 10am with the final one at 4pm.

Update – Only the 4pm session is still available

Interested in speaking to The Optimists?

Right from the beginning of our time working with The Marketing Optimist, they’ve taken the time and effort to get to understand Sharp Consultancy as a business and not just a client. We’ve seen a huge increase in the effectiveness of our social media strategy, particularly on Linkedin and we’re delighted with the impact it’s had on the business.

It was a pleasure to work with The Marketing Optimist on this project. It felt like a true collaborative effort on the day and they made the interviewee's feel at ease whilst talking about their journey on our RISE programme. The final video was professional and engaging, we have received great feedback around the quality and creativity of the case study. Including the video in our presentation made it come to life, with real humans sharing their stories, so thank you to the Marketing Optimist!
