“While we felt we had a good understanding of our target customer, after our workshop with Elly it was fairly obvious that we had some glaring blind spots in our thinking. Elly challenged us to think deeper, and then helped us understand how we can articulate what we do in a way that made sense to our audience.
Elly has a knack of asking the right questions at the right time, and when mixed with her extensive insights and experience, is quite a potent mix! Our work together will act as the toolkit for all of our marketing activities going forward.”
Andrew Jack, Candle Learning – e-learning developers
“Eleanor’s work was excellent – well-structured and gave me a clear understanding of what I should do and how I should do it. She is really inspirational to work with, and also listens and understands what is required. She has brilliantly fulfilled the role of the marketing director I don’t have, and I hope that she will continue to work with me in the future to grow the brand.”
Charlotte Raffo, Owner of The Monkey Puzzle Tree – luxury interiors brand
“The Maxwell Scott team found Elly’s workshops to be incredibly insightful and actionable. Her spirited and interactive approach to training was refreshing and made a challenging topic fascinating.”
Jessica Oram, Maxwell Scott Bags
“Elly helped me further develop my brand and really understand my audience and the market I operate in more clearly; she also created a 6 month marketing plan, which was exactly what I needed. I now have direction and a clear framework to operate within – to actually know what I need to say, to who and when, takes away a huge amount of stress and frees up time for me to focus on other areas of the business.
The quality of work from Elly has been excellent; she is very personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would not hesitate recommending Elly if you need any guidance with marketing your business.”
Paul Leniham, Owner of NOTINLOVE – high-end accessories brand
“Elly helped me with six award entries that needed to be submitted pronto. She interpreted the awards criteria quickly and imaginatively. She was easy to work with, was willing to work flexibly to suit our changing needs and the submissions she wrote were excellent.”
Alex Bateman, Marketing Strategy Manager, Virtual College
“When launching my company’s website I required Eleanor to both tidy up my attempt at creating the correct tone of voice for the website, and to also write new copy. Eleanor really brought the key brand values out with her work, and executed them in copy.
The first session she conducted to discuss the Found Us brand was vital in understanding both purpose and ethos of the business, and this work was pivotal to the launch of the website and the current success of the business with suppliers, staff, candidates, and clients.”
Peter Cobley, Owner and founder, Found Us recruitment
“I felt like Elly had really taken the time to try and understand both me and my business so what I got was targeted advice (as well as the odd pat on the back for things I had already done, which we all need from time to time!). I went away from the meeting buzzing with ideas and even started putting some of the advice into practice on the journey home. I’ve now got a really clear ‘checklist’ of things that I can work on in my own time and at my own pace but I don’t feel like I’m just drifting around anymore!
Elly was super friendly, knew exactly what she was talking about, both in general marketing terms but also specifically about my business and totally put me at ease from the start. I would thoroughly recommend working with Elly for anyone who feels like they need to give themselves a little push in the right direction!”
Zoe, Owner of jewellery brand Hello Half Penny
“Not only did Elly make me feel at ease about the fact I was going through my business ideas off the top of my head, she was able to make me see what I was doing from another perspective and crucially, pinpoint what was most important. I was nervous about sharing my ideas but she was so enthusiastic and had countless creative ideas about how to direct my marketing in the future, and in turn leaving me with a new energy and excitement for how to approach selling my work!
I was so impressed at what we managed in such a relatively short amount of time and I am so glad I signed up. After our session, I feel like I can approach amending my website and branding my work with confidence, as well as a deeper knowledge of my customer and my own practice. Incredible!”
Chloe Kutkus-Morton, artist
“I recently had a personal marketing meeting with Eleanor Snare who I found very easy to communicate with and extremely helpful. My art practice has many strands and all of the sections had drifted apart leaving me a little lost as to how to make it all work together, I wanted Eleanor’s help with how to use my website and online platforms to benefit my individual scenario and also to re-introduce a more concise dialogue of what my work is actually about.
Eleanor provided me with information that would allow me to access some online platforms that I had previously thought were unsuitable to me and ways of working around difficulties I have. I left the meeting feeling pretty positive, re-energised and hopeful that I could make my business work. The overall word that springs to mind is clarity, I walked into the meeting in a foggy haze and I left with total clarity. Thank you Eleanor!”
Kyla Dante, artist
“Elly has worked with us on numerous occasions and has always delivered high quality, insightful work. She’s a thoughtful, creative and strategically aware writer with a high level of understanding of tone, proposition development and how to generate response. She’s also a warm, happy presence around the place. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
Rob Wardale, Brand and Communications Manager, First 10
“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop with Elly. She’s really great to work with and I was surprised by how much we covered in such a short space of time. The workshop gave me clarity on what services I should be offering and helped me come up with some unique ideas that are completely different to anything else in my industry.”
