About Us

“People do business with people they like” -

Jeffrey Gitomer (author of the Sales Bible)

This quote is especially true when it comes to small and medium-sized businesses. With that in mind, here is where you can find out a bit more about us and our people.


“Our vision is to be recognised across the UK as the defining moment of change for business’ success; where companies move from marketing average to marketing great”

We chose this statement as, when done right, marketing delivers results that create a serious step-change in performance for small businesses.

Our belief is that the owners of businesses are the true backbone of the UK economy and the risks they take to run their own companies truly deserve to be rewarded. With over 5 million small businesses in the UK, accounting for 99.9% of all the business population, the numbers alone show just how vital our vision and mission is.

Whether it is an SME specialist marketing agency in Brighton, marketing services in Sussex or you are located further afield but want the best marketing agency to enable your business to progress – we want to go on that journey with you to success!

We wrote the book on marketing strategy

Our Directors, Tim and Henry, are recognised as industry leaders in the strategic marketing of small businesses. They have literally written the book on marketing strategy for small and medium-sized businesses with ‘Growing by Design’ being published in 2019.

They followed this up by also writing ‘The Missing Business Instructions’ in 2020. This book explains how to grow a small business across all key business areas, not only marketing.

Our Partner - UK Growth Coach

The small business community is one that needs to support each other. As such, we build alliances as well as actively take part in many networking groups across the South East.

Our sister businesses UK Growth Coach allow us to work in synergy and cover a broader range of requirements for customers than marketing alone.

Our business coaching services provide a solution to a specific challenge; that business owners are rarely taught how to be a business owner. Whilst marketing and sales underpin a successful business, on their own they aren’t enough for success, and our services here help with operations, team performance, systemisation, financial controls and much more.

For guidance and advice on everything from getting more leads, how to do local SEO, getting more online reviews and so much more - check out our blog!
