Marketing + Branding = META

Marketing is the tactics you use to get your audiences attention—branding is how you keep it.

Although they are both very different concepts in business, they must both be given an equal measure of importance. This is because, when you have a strong brand and a strong marketing strategy, the effect it has on your business success is multiplied as both work together in unison.

A strong marketing strategy will engage with the right audience while a strong brand strategy will keep them engaged—that is the META.

Market your business on social media


Build the right audience

Having thousands of followers who never interact with your content doesn't help your business. I can help you build a thriving community of your ideal fans who'll actively engage with your content and share it with their networks, promoting your brand for you.


Generate leads & sales

Social is a great opportunity to generate more leads and sales for your business. Target a defined audience based on criteria such as age, interests, job title, geography and more with products and services they'll love.


Promote your content

Are you creating great content but not getting any traffic? It's not enough just to have great content—you need the right people to see it. I can help you promote your content on social media, leading to more traffic to your site and improved brand awareness.


Retarget site visitors

Retargeting is so effective because it focuses your advertising on people who have recently demonstrated interest in your business. I can help create campaigns that keep you in front of your site visitors, even after they've left your site.

Email marketing


Stay in contact with your customers

Contacting your audience about offers, updates and events within your business or industry is vital for strengthening your brand. I can help build email campaigns that keep your audience informed and help build brand loyalty.


Build segmented targeting campaigns

Email marketing works best when you send specific information and offers to the right people in your database. Through intelligent segmentation of your lists, I can build targeted email campaigns that send the right information to the right contacts.


Nurture your leads into customers

There's no better time to send a promotional email than right after they have shown interest in your business. I can create automated multi-step funnels that help convert your leads into buyers and your buyers into multiple buyers.


Amazing email designs that convert

First impressions are everything, so how your emails look visually is very important. I can design and create beautiful email graphics that engage and convert, whether your audience are opening their emails on mobile, desktop or tablet.



Brand positioning

Brand positioning is how you wish to be perceived in the hearts and minds of your audience or customers. I can help position your brand in a way that incorporates your values, your promise and sets you apart from the competition.


Brand identity

Your brand identity helps your audience recognise your brand and strengthens your positioning in their minds. It's not just your logo—your brand should have a voice, personality, a set of values and a visual appearance that makes you unique.


Logo design

Your logo is the symbol that represents your brand. It's what people use to identify and recognise you, and in time, it becomes a symbol of everything they feel about you. I can help you design a beautiful logo that'll stand the test of time.


Brand collateral

Brand Collateral is the collection of media that is used to promote your business. Great brand collateral supports the sales and marketing of a product or service, such as brochures, letterheads, business cards and stationery.

Web Design with Webflow

At a time when over 85% of the developed world are online, it's important to have a strong online presence, and it all starts with a strong website.

Secure hosting

Security is a serious matter for website owners. Built on the Webflow platform, your website will feature free SSL encryption and a 99.9% uptime rate, meaning less hassle for you and your business.


Easy to manage

Webflow is my platform of choice when creating new, bespoke websites. It's easy-to-use editing system allows you as the owner to upload new content and products easily and quickly, without the need to code.


Social media integration

I make it easy for your visitors to both follow your social pages and share your content on some of the most popular social media platforms. I'll integrate your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube accounts directly with your website.


Analytics tracking

It's important to know whether or not your visitors are coming back and enjoying their web experience with you. I'll setup and integrate your current or new Analytics account with your website so that you can see how people are interacting with your content.

"We've hired several marketers over the years and usually seem to be paying for fancy reports full of graphs and no real results. Stephen helped us speed up our e-commerce store and improve the way it looks. Most importantly, we saw a real improvement in our Google rankings and visitor numbers within weeks."
