M-zone – Freelance and project-based marketing communications support for technology sector businesses in the UK.  Whatever the size of your business, effective marketing communications add value.  Marketing can help you to secure your existing customer base, to build and maintain a healthy pipeline of prospective customers, to work more closely with your channel partners and to build relationships with your strategic and alliance partners.

You may already have a marketing team to run your marketing communications programmes who simply need some additional resource.  Or you may not yet have sufficient business momentum to justify a full-time, permanent employee.

In either case, if you are in the B2B technology sector then look no further!  With over 20 years marketing experience, I can provide marketing support in a flexible manner – part-time, contracted, for a specific project or simply on an ad hoc basis.

You’ll get all the benefits of a professional marketing manager who can just get on and do it. Someone who has tried and tested hundreds of marketing campaigns; who has run a myriad of marketing events; who has written copy for websites, articles, case studies and countless other promotional materials; who has planned, budgeted, implemented and reported on thousands of marketing campaigns. Someone who is creative, enthusiastic, flexible and slots seamlessly into your team.

Plus you won’t have the pain of having to recruit someone – no employee overheads, no recruitment costs, no employee retention costs, no headcount, no agency fees.
