I started working in internet marketing back in 2000 when my interest in the internet got the better of me. I first went online in 1996 and my thoughts about being a web designer led me into internet marketing – a big change from handling Government contracts for the defence sector!
I started my own consultancy, Forty First, in 2002 after working in house for a leading job board and then for an internet marketing agency in Brighton where I honed my SEO skills with projects for a multinational publisher, a national hotel chain and a large charity. I also speak fluent French and have more recently worked with a Paris based marketing agency.
My belief has always been that the principles of online marketing have never changed: creating a high-quality website and using best practice marketing techniques for long term, sustainable results.
Being a small business myself, I understand that many businesses need to stretch often small budgets that much further. I strive to give value for money to my clients and introduce them to the many low cost tools available to small businesses. Marketing doesn't have to cost a fortune!
