My experience spans all marketing disciplines and my clients include household names like John Lewis and Prudential as well as countless small businesses and start-ups.

Work with me and I'll analyse, identify, plan and implement the marketing activity you need to achieve your business goals. If you're ready to grow your business, I'm here to help you.

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

I want to grow my business but don't know how to?
That's what I'm here for! Check out my kickstart package. I help businesses every day from one man start-ups to established businesses.  Great marketing can be the difference between your business flying or failing.

I don't have big budgets or time for marketing.
I can manage your marketing so it cost-effectively delivers your wider business goals. Check out my marketing director or small business marketing package. My clients have fed back that I can have more impact in one day than their previous marketing resource has been in five days. Not only can I help your business grow, but I can save you time and money too.

Our marketing is old, tired and boring.
I'm brimming with new ideas, and bring fresh eyes to your marketing. Check out my services. Sometimes it’s hard to break from activities you’ve always done. I will come in to your business and assess what is working and what we need to change, plus I’ll discuss new marketing initiatives with you to bring energy and impact to your existing plans.

Please can you help with a specific project?
I can manage your marketing projects such as a new website and rebrand from brief to delivery. Check out my project management package and give me a call. I’ll help you deliver your project on time and to budget.

Can you help us find, brief and manage marketing specialists (like web designers)?
Yes, just get in touch! Knowing what questions to ask, what your budget will get you and making sure what is delivered is actually what you need are all things I can take care of for you. Whether it’s just a case of introducing you to other experts or briefing and managing the work for you, I can make sure you get the most from marketing specialists.

Do you have any specific experience in the Recruitment Sector?
Before I set up Claire Best Marketing, I was Marketing Director for a Global Recruitment agency. I still have clients in Industry and help them with both client development and candidate acquisition. For more information check out my marketing for recruitment agencies section.
