Welcome

M-zone – Freelance and project-based marketing communications.

At M-zone, I’ve been helping clients to reach their business-to-business target audiences for over 15 years as a freelance marketing resource. Clients have included some of the biggest technology names as well as the more modest-sized, but big-thinking, business services companies 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 as well as to communicate more successfully with all of your audiences.

The range of marketing services I can offer include:

•    developing insights for strategic planning and understanding your product/service offering
•    idea generation and delivery options to suit different styles and budgets
•    campaign implementation – live events, webinars, inbound and outbound activities, targeted direct mail & email communications, social
•    content development – copywriting for websites, landing pages, email, direct mail, collateral including customer case studies.

Marketing services can be provided for projects or on a retained basis from my home-office on the borders of Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey.

You’ll get all the benefits of a professional marketing manager who can just get on and do it.

So if you need to build a marketing plan, just tidy up your existing marketing programmes or something in between, why not give me a call or drop me an email.

M-zone – ideal for businesses that don’t want to employ a full marketing team but do want to demonstrate marketing professionalism.

While you are here, take a browse around the site and review some of my client testimonials. When you are ready, call me on 07775 720178 for an informal chat.

During the summer of 2015 I conducted a B2B technology marketing survey and published the results during September and October 2015: check in here for some of the results
