Creative Concepts and Content
Keeping a brand fresh and alive can be a challenging process and it’s easy to dry up or slip into the shadows.
Marketing and Communication Strategy
A good marketing and communications strategy is a route planner to where you ultimately want to be.
Words and key messaging is the bridge to your target audience – ultimately the right words can sell your brand.
In today’s world a strong on-line presence is absolutely essential. However, there is an ocean of social media out there so where do you cast your net?
Over the years I have curated, coordinated and facilitated many events.
‘The screening of a film is a very nerve wracking occasion. Getting Yvonne onboard reduced my stress levels enormously! She has a calming but dynamic presence and having her there, I just knew that everything would be alright – and it was: she organised the whole event for me even down to the smallest detail and deftly negotiated horrible issues like the last minute tube strike. She made sure that the screening was a great sold out success. Trust me, you need her in your corner!’ Ros Gihan-Williams, Creative Director, Nightshift Films ‘I have worked with Yvonne for five years now and she has helped build Sonata Hi-Fi into a vibrant successful business. Her PR and Marketing skills are excellent and her energy and positivity infectious. She is well connected and opens many doors. Every small business needs an Yvonne!’ Rob Wilson, Director, Sonata Hi-Fi ‘We’ve been working with Yvonne for a couple of years now, mainly in her capacity as a copywriter. It’s important that copy is relevant both for search engines, Google and visitors to a website, therefore there’s quite a lot of skill involved and Yvonne’s very good at doing all these things. I can also trust her when I give her a job, to represent Codastar and deal with our Clients directly.’ Vinny Piana, Director, CodastarRead more
