Hi, I’m Eimear and I run Strong Marketing and Communications based in South Manchester. I provide marketing help for small to medium sized businesses particularly in the construction and finance sectors. Before my 40th birthday in 2018 I was burnt out after working full-time while raising my family with my husband. I nearly quit marketing to do something different but realised I had much to offer businesses who couldn’t commit to a permanent marketing person.

Why am I only starting to blog now?

Hands up! I’ve been in business for over 18 months and I haven’t done enough of my own marketing (I know!). I’ve been fortunate enough to benefit from recommendations, but I need to take my own marketing advice. So here is my website after almost four months of working on it at night in front of the TV. Not bad is it? I know it’s not over and there’s plenty of work to do to maintain it, but I am quite proud of it so far. I wanted to add a blog to the site as blogs are a useful part of the marketing toolkit. A blog is a cost-effective way to build your brand and give support and advice to your audience. I’d recommend blogging to clients so why wouldn’t I do it myself?

Why should you read these blogs and what can you expect?

If you’re a small to medium business who wants to practical information for your marketing this blog is for you. I have 20 years of corporate marketing experience that I want to share with you and have many topics to talk about.

You’ll see blogs on everything from creating a plan and working with agencies to my experiences of creating my website. I aim to share not only my expertise but my own areas of personal growth over the last few decades. I want you to walk away from this blog with useful information and the marketing help you need. So please stay with me and feel free to comment and contribute along the way,

Thank you for reading
