How it works
I relish being the doer or implementer – meaning that you continue to do what you do best – advising your clients on the strategy (while I get on with the doing).
I’ll be proactive in suggesting ways to improve things (if there are any!) – you’ll not only have an extra pair of hands but a fresh pair of eyes and new perspective. I’ll share my ideas with you, which you can then pass on to your client, if you so wish.
Your client remains your client. Stealing a client’s client is definitely a “no no” and something to be frowned upon. I won’t be claiming the work I do for you as my own either.
As a “completer/finisher” (Belbin profiling) and with my carefully considered approach, your projects will be completed thoroughly, giving you peace of mind.
For outsourced work, you can trust me to communicate directly with your client or you can remain the main point of contact with your client – the choice is yours.
I’ll be on your side – I want to support you to help you achieve more and to reach the next rung on your ladder. My aim is to be your valued team member and colleague.
You can rely on me to provide regular status updates on a project so that you’re always in the loop and there are no nasty surprises.
New client process
First and foremost: Do you think we’re a good fit for working together? If you’re considering outsourcing, I understand how important it is to find a freelancer you can trust. And more than this, we’ll need to share the same values. (Still on the fence when it comes to outsourcing? Read this blog post for tips and advice from a Communications & PR Consultant on how she approached outsourcing.)
Like what you see? Now it’s time to book in for a 15-minute coffee chat so we can see if working together would be a good fit. I’m looking forward to meeting you and learning more about your business.
Time to catch up! You can tell me all about your business and what you need help with. And I’ll be ready with my questions to dig a little deeper.
If we both think we are a good fit for working together following our call, I’ll send you my booking link where you can book me for a day (or days).
On the day, we’ll set up a kick-off session to chat through your priorities. Then I’ll get to work! And you can focus on your other more important stuff, knowing that you’re being supported by a safe and steady extra pair of hands.
Frequently asked questions
I’m not a Marketing, Communications or PR Consultant but I’m looking for some support – can you help? I only work with Marketing. Communications/PR Consultants. If this isn’t you, do feel free to drop me a line and I’ll try and help by giving you a name(s) of someone who may be better placed to provide support.
I’m a Marketing/Communications/PR Consultant based outside of the UK – can you help me? I only work with UK based consultants. However, please email me in case I can give you a name(s) of someone who may be able to help you.
Will you work alongside me in my office? I like working remotely and want to keep it that way. I’ll happily jump on regular calls or meet in person if you’re in or local to Bristol.
My budget is a £200 day rate – interested? Sorry but I’m not your person. I’m not an office junior or straight out of uni. I have 10+ years in marketing and comms roles at international publishing companies and not-for-profits, before going freelance.
Can I set you up with my business email address? I am more than happy to work on a client project using your company’s email address and email signature. In fact, I already work in this way with some of my clients.
Are you insured? Yes, I have professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance with provider With Jack.
