One year of The Marketing Optimist

By: Richard Michie

June 2017 marks the first full year of The Marketing Optimist Ltd. We officially launched in February 2016 but for a few months were sans ltd. It’s a been a whirlwind year in which we’ve assisted over 50 companies helping them turn their marketing spend into sale revenue. The range of projects and industries we worked with is pretty staggering.

Somehow in the middle of all that we became part of Entrepreneurial Spark in Leeds and joined the Alternative Board. These two organisations are really helping us take the business forward and helping to build a long-lasting business which will grow and help more organisations fulfill their marketing potential.

As well as all the hard work we like to have a lot of fun with our clients too. This week we went a little further than normal in the pursuit of helping our client Love Bomb Cushions – guess who’s in the Emoji Man outfit at the top of the page!

Which brings us on to this impromptu video which is a short and silly introduction to the business. Look past the silly faces and throwing bean bags about and there are a few marketing tips tucked away for good measure.

If we can help you with your marketing call 07834 197785 or fill in the form below, we’d be delighted to help.
