It’s not all about Social Media

Disclaimer: Not a post to blow my own trumpet. For those of you know know me will know that. is. not. me.
This week has been busy (despite the chicken pox hitting my household causing chaos #facepalm) but I’ve been able to secure the following PR for my beautiful clients:
* A radio feature on BBC Essex.
* A two-page editorial (plus cover mention!) in a gorgeous Essex-based glossy magazine.
* A feature in our local newspaper.

Can we still trust the world of influencers?

Ugh. With the revelations of a renowned ‘mummy blogger’ having a fake account to be unkind to others and participate in online forums (despite having her own reasons for doing so), is it any wonder that brands are becoming more and more sceptical when working with influencers?! 🤷

Marketing and Me

Hello. 🙂 By day, I am a freelance marketing consultant and provide a variety of marketing services to small businesses and individuals, predominantly based in Essex, UK. I also enjoy the occasional dabble of writing a lifestyle and parenting blog here at flamingomonroe.com and I often “ghost” write/blog for others.

Thank you for finding this marketing section, designed to support the smaller businesses, individuals and brands amongst us, where I try to simplify things as much as I can…

WHAT MY MARKETING BLOG IS:
The intention is for me to have a designated space to share ideas, tips, insight, advice, case studies, suggestions and more, in a lighthearted, friendly, supportive and safe environment.

SERVICES AND KNOWLEDGE I OFFER:
Social media management, copywriting/blogging, brand creative, PR, events, planning, content strategy, attacking creative blocks (i.e. on Instagram), website management (not design or SEO), partnerships and collaborations as well as consultancy appointments and general marketing support.

MY CREDENTIALS:
Marketing is often (unfortunately) self taught and presumed as “common sense” (OUCH towards to those of us with relevant experience, qualifications etc.) Therefore, I feel it’s only fair for me to inform you of my background…

As of 2017 I have been self employed in the freelance marketing world,  working for many brands, individuals and businesses on a retainer, project and consultancy basis.

Before then, my full time employed roles were:
* Head of Marketing – HELLO! magazine – 8.5 years
* Brand and Promotions – News of the World newspaper and being a part of the launch team for their Fabulous magazine supplement (News UK)
* Events and Marketing roles at Hearst magazines
* Marketing roles for a number of beauty brands

REMEMBER:
Every business and brand is different, and what might work for one person may not be right for someone else. All comments and opinions are my own and therefore I ask you to take my words and comments with a light hearted approach. This is a competitive-free zone.

CLOSED FACEBOOK GROUP:
