Hi, I’m Alison, your no-fluff marketer.
My promise to you is straightforward, plain-speaking and honest marketing support.
I won’t baffle you with marketing speak. Nor will I try to pull the wool over your eyes or let you run with ill-conceived ideas that will ultimately cost time and money for little return.
I’m honest with my clients and will tell you what I think based on my knowledge, experience and expertise.
I’m a marketing consultant and the director of Straight Marketing. I created this business in 2010 after 13 years of working client-side in various business development and marketing communication roles within professional service firms.
Before that, I was Head of Business Development and Marketing for Ashfords LLP, a top 100 law firm with offices across the South West. I started my marketing career in London, working for professional service firms, including one of the ‘Magic Circle’ law firms, before returning to my roots in Devon.
After 13 years of employment, I decided to become a freelance marketing consultant and Straight Marketing was born. Since then, I’ve been helping family-run and owner-managed businesses to raise their profile, attract new customers and increase sales.
As well as more years of marketing experience than I care to think about, I hold the Post-Graduate Diploma in Marketing, am a Chartered Marketer and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
So I have a trusted team of marketing specialists who provide expertise in areas such as graphic design, PR, telemarketing and digital marketing. Together we make an incredible team and can look after all your marketing needs.
If you’d like to grow your business and no-fluff marketing sounds like your thing, please get in touch. I’d love to work with you.
