Small businesses across the Peterborough area can now access affordable marketing expertise to help them grow their business as The Little Marketing Company (LMC) officially launched this week.

With start-up businesses at a record high across the UK, the Little Marketing Company firmly believes size shouldn’t matter when it comes to accessing the marketing tools, knowledge and expertise they need to grow. After using the marketing expertise (gained over 13 years across the private, public and charity sectors, local authorities and government) to support friends and family to establish and grow their own successful local businesses, Natalie Brannigan became passionate about helping other small businesses do the same. So in 2018, while on maternity leave, the Little Marketing Company was born!

The Little Marketing Company has already supported over 30 small businesses in the region, ranging from hairdressers, fitness and PA’s to electrical and property with its wide ranging tailored services including a marketing health check, marketing plans, marketing masterclasses, Start Up packages, mentor sessions and consultations.

Over 40 people attended an event to mark the launch this week to hear how the LMC could support their business.

Natalie Brannigan said:  “I’m thrilled at the interest that the Little Marketing Company has had so far, which just goes to show how much small businesses are crying out for this kind of support. People often start their own business because they’re passionate about the product but sometimes struggle to find the time or lack the expertise to market their business effectively.

I’m passionate about supporting start-ups and small businesses to thrive using the experience, knowledge, tools and techniques I’ve learnt over the years. I also know what it’s like starting a new business with tight budgets, limited time and resources so my prices are affordable and will ultimately save you time and maximise your resources.  For example, my marketing health checks start from just £35 and can provide plenty of tips and advice on your existing marketing.

Marketing should never be bottom of your to do list so if you’re feeling overwhelmed, need help getting started, guiding in the right direction or someone to take on your marketing, I’d love to hear from you.”

Natalie was instrumental in supporting local entrepreneur Jo Bevilacqua to set up her award winning businesses, Serenity Loves and the Unique Mumpreneur.

Jo Bevilacqua said: “Natalie really knows her stuff when it comes to marketing and I have been beyond grateful for her support over the years. My businesses are now thriving and I never fail to recommend Natalie to my clients and contacts, as well as continuing to use Natalie to deliver aspects of my own marketing activities.”
