We do marketing and sustainability implementation for purpose driven businesses.

For those who are (or want to)

do their bit for people and planet. 

If you are a purpose led business - startup, small business (or bigger I don't mind, we're all in this together), I can help you get your message out there. Or get you started on the right road to sustainability.

Let's have a chat about either. I'd love to hear from you. Get in touch with a simple heylo! 

Your social media is sporadic, your blogging isn’t beginning, and your ideas aren’t inspiring. Put simply, planning your marketing is plainly quite painful. So let us do it for you. Online and offline, we can plan it, execute it and we can even build you a website if that’s what you need to get you going.
For the love of the planet...
 
We really do. So much so that Jaxx has also spent the last 3 years working on a Circular Economy bathroom homewares startup. 
 
So she knows a bit about sustainability. And has a good eye for sniffing out the BS often peddled by greenwashers. So she's best placed to help your sustainable marketing goals. 
In a nutshell, we take care of your marketing so that you can take marketing off of your to do list. We take a collaborative approach, working with you to understand what your business is about. You tell us what you need, we'll come up with ideas and do it. 
 
Our heart and soul lies in sustainability and the Circular Economy. Whilst our bread and butter at the moment is marketing, we can also help you to introduce simple sustainability strategies and actions into your business values. And then help you to communicate them to everyone internally and externally.

I love writing. Here you will find my thoughts about marketing and sustainability.

Our Services

MARKETING 

IN

YOUR

OFFICE 

Us with you in your space for a full or half day - If you need us to be with you, we can be. Whether it’s a one off half day, a longer term contract for a project or because you know you need a marketing resource, we’ll be there by your side. As long as you’re commutable for us that is (West or East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow preferred). Further afield? We will travel if it makes sense for us, if we’re a good match and we really want to work together.

PLAN

YOUR

MARKETING

Build Something - for a month, a quarter, a year or something more strategic, we will Build Something. We’ll do a Brain Storm (jeez this BS thing is working out well isn’t it?) together or we can do it for you and present our ideas and suggestions. Once we’ve agreed what needs done, we plan it. It’s up to you if you can execute it yourself or if you need us to do that too.

SOCIAL

MEDIA

PLANNING

Be Social? - Another bit of planning and idea generating. We can plan campaigns, generate themes and give your social media a right good boot up the feed.

WRITE

YOUR

BLOG

Blog Some — you might have noticed we’re quite good at the writing thing. Although some might disagree (you can’t please everyone). If you’re one of the ones who do like what we write (we did say we like a bit of poetry. Rhyming is poetry isn’t it?) then we can write for you. We’ll adapt to your audience and get into your way of thinking and we’ll write about stuff that matters to you and your business. It also helps your SEO.

BUILD

A

WEBSITE

Brilliantly Simple - for when you need a brilliantly simple website. We will use Wix or Squarespace and you can be as involved or not involved in the process as you want to be. Tell us what you want and we’ll do it. Or we can work on it together. Your website. Your call.

WRITE YOUR

WEBSITE

COPY

Breathe a Sigh - of relief. When you need a new website and new words for your website but you don’t have the time or expertise. We can help you write the copy you need to send to your website developer - if your website developer can’t do it for you or you need a fresh pair of eyes.

SEND

DIRECT

MARKETING

Bring Something - different. Traditional marketing at it’s best. Direct Marketing can be a very useful way to target your customers, particularly if you are business to business. If you have the budget it’s also great to target existing customers with something that little bit different.

SEND

YOUR

NEWSLETTERS

Better Send - do you want to stay in touch with your existing customers easily, straight to their inbox? Monthly newsletters can be as short or as long as you need them to be. Tell your story, direct people to your website or let people know about special offers.

SUSTAINABILITY

BE

MORE

SUSTAINABLE

Be Sustainable - we have a particular love for businesses and startups who are embracing sustainability. And we don’t mean simply saying it on your website. We want all Scottish businesses to include real, tangible sustainable thinking and practices into their business - embed it through core values and make it part of everyday life. We can discuss this with you and set out a plan to get you started.

EMBRACE 

CIRCULAR

ECONOMY

Best Shift - We live in a world where we continue to take from the planet, make stuff and then waste it. We need to shift this thinking and doing by closing the loop and moving to a world without waste. Where we mimic nature and utilise everything as a resource. We have experience and are passionate about circularity and we are here to help you move to a zero waste business.

SIMPLE

SUSTAINABILITY

STEPS

Becoming more sustainable can be as simple as introducing reuse schemes instead of having disposable items in your office, club or bar. Or maybe you could change everyone's browser to Ecosia (who plant trees for every search). Or what about switching to a renewable energy supplier?

 

If you and your business or organisation would like to be future thinkers by taking action today, please get in touch.

 
 

Born ready when

you are

I’m not going to pretend I’m some big agency or even small agency. It’s me you’ll be working with so hi! How will we work together? You tell me what you need, I’ll tell you if I can do it and you tell me if you want me to do it. After we’ve established all that, it would be good to meet up in person and see if we like each other! It’s important isn’t it. If you need something I’m not able to do myself, I will know someone who can.

Here’s a wee bit of background so you know who you’re working with.

I’ve being doing marketing for 18 years now. My full time marketing career culminated at Porsche Cars GB. As fancy as it was, I knew I needed to pursue my own thing. So I moved back to the mother land to start my own business - making a product I ‘invented’ for my bathroom. We’re now developing a product that’s safe, sustainable and within the realms of the Circular Economy. It’s why I love working with startups and small businesses. And it’s also why I’m particularly keen to work with you if you’re serious about or would like to get serious about sustainability, the Circular Economy and looking after people and planet whilst making a profit.
