Emma Pearce was one of the easiest people l have worked with on something I knew little about! She was clear and precise explaining the workings of all aspects of social media needed to help build my new business. I would happily recommend Emma to anyone for all their marketing needs, not just social media!

Attended an excellent social media advertising workshop facilitated by Emma Pearce and her team at Pearce Marketing. So much useful information, jargon free and easy to implement. Thank you ladies.

Pearce Marketing has been great in helping me with Social Media. I had a 121 training session with Sophie at their lovely offices. Sophie had already checked out my company Facebook page and had lots of ideas on how I could improve. We covered so much more than just Facebook in the two hours and I came away with lots of ideas on ways to improve my reach and potential to gain new customers. I would highly recommend talking to Pearce Marketing about your Social Media needs.
