The Cooden Beach Hotel

The Cooden Beach Hotel

We have worked with Emma Pearce and her team at Pearce Marketing throughout our entire rebranding project, with a special focus on the launch of the new Brasserie on The Beach. This has covered all aspects of the Hotel from menus, to social media, a new website, email marketing and much more. Pearce Marketing are both inspirational and innovative and the attention to detail and follow up is extraordinary. For us this is the start of a longstanding new relationship for all our marketing needs.

Demand to Supply

Demand to Supply Logo

“Emma and her team at Pearce Marketing provide companies with a marketing team to die for, which operates seamlessly as if they are your own team. I couldn’t recommend Emma and her team highly enough for any company that wants to grow their business, but do not have the on-board resources and marketing know how to support this. Pearce Marketing will provide you with clarity of thinking about your marketplace, positioning, product offerings and the approach and route to market which will ensure your best return on investment and the leads that you want. Working with Pearce Marketing has been a breath of fresh air, highly experienced, really engaged and great people, I couldn’t recommend them more. Unusually for an outsourced marketing team they are as good at execution as they are at strategy. If marketing is on your to-do list they will get it off the to-do list and make it happen.”

Mark Beaumont, Director & Founder, Demand to Supply LTD

Cooden  Tax Consulting

Cooden Tax Consulting

“We engaged Pearce Marketing to help with our marketing plan, but also to help us maximise a commitment to exhibit at a big trade event in London. As well as managing the graphic designer, Emma conducted friendly telephone interviews to gather feedback, testimonials and images for creating compelling case studies. The Pearce Marketing team also worked with our web designer, assisted with copy for articles and blogs, email marketing, liaised with printers and negotiated an improved deal with a business magazine. They did all of this in a very tight time frame and at a reasonable cost. The visual impact and results were outstanding. Without Emma’s efforts I would have struggled to implement what I wanted to do while continuing with my business. I would wholeheartedly recommend Emma and her team to any business.”

Simon Bulteel, Cooden Tax Consulting, Bexhill, East Sussex

 

Natural Fitness Centre

Natural Fitness Centre
“I recommend you talk to Emma if you want to take that extra step to improve your marketing.  She has inspired me with her creativity, enthusiasm and very helpful support for our website content, social media strategy and email marketing. I chose Pearce Marketing for my Growth Voucher support because of the level of commitment from both Emma and Sophie. They both take time to fully understand my business and the aspects that will lead to growth in revenue. They are both very easy to work with, organised, knowledgeable and able to explain things in an easy to understand way. Working with Pearce Marketing has definitely had an impact on my business and my turnover. ”

 Alison Brown, Director, Natural Fitness Centre, Eastbourne, East Sussex

 

Eastbourne Framing Centre

“Emma is an extremely effective provider and marketer to work with and very much suits my style of working. She listens and delivers with no faffing about. She communicates very clearly and is meticulous with her notes, action plans and in delivering to all parties concerned. I will be working with Emma again in the future as not only is she an excellent provider but friendly and supportive also. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”

Lucy Newport, Eastbourne Framing Centre, Eastbourne, East Sussex

 

Super Event

“Emma and Sophie gave us a really comprehensive audit of our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and You Tube accounts. It was enormously helpful to check if our social media accounts were set up in the best way, optimised and learn how we could improve our content and utilise advertising options too. Their tailored training means we can now confidently maximise social media for our business.”

Tony Brewin, MD, Super Event

 

Cliffe Enterprise

“Cliffe Enterprise called upon Pearce Marketing to run a series of sessions to inform and educate our team on the usage and benefits of social media within our business. Emma tailored the training to fit around our requirements and the sessions were well paced, well-structured and pitched at a perfect level. I had no hesitation in recommending Pearce Marketing to an associate who is now working with Emma on his own marketing efforts. Without doubt I will be working with Emma in the future to evaluate our own online and offline marketing strategy.”

Kate Thomson, Head of Marketing Communications, Cliffe Enterprise

 

Eckington HR

“I asked Pearce Marketing to look at my website SEO, Google+ and other marketing actions for me. I’ve been monitoring the results which I think speak for themselves. I’ve been trading for over 4 years and have had 2 clients in that whole time who have ‘found’ me through Google. In the last two months alone I’ve had 3 new clients directly from Google, the revenue that they have generated has more than paid for the work that Pearce Marketing (and my website designer Laura at Lilyflair) have done for me. Highly recommended!”

Debbie Silvester , MD, Eckington HR

 

Holy Cross Priory

“We are a small, but long established, charity that has undertaken a big commercial project.  We have built a retirement village with luxury apartments and a care home. Emma Pearce has been invaluable to us with her marketing skills and enthusiastic approach. We had no idea about branding and she helped us to work out what we are and what the important messages are to convey to customers.  She has helped us with customer research, content for our website, brochures and editorials, preparing for exhibitions and negotiated good deals with print and online advertisers.   She has taken the pain out of all this! I would thoroughly recommend Pearce Marketing.”

Fiona Wookey, Holy Cross Priory, Heathfield, East Sussex

 

Jeanie Gordon Acupuncture

new logo
“Emma and her team are not only incredibly knowledgeable in terms of all things marketing, but also curious, quick and dedicated: they spent time initially getting to understand my business which meant that they were able to tailor make a programme designed to fit my exact needs. 
They identified and delivered ideas that rang true to the core values of my business – and whilst they implemented some of the core ideas, they also (on my request) provided me with a long to-do list, so over the next year I can continue to grow my business a further stage – great value for money. I move forward confident that the money I have invested in their service will more than deliver its worth. 

And, finally, they were fun to work with, approachable and likeable.”

Jeanie Gordon, Jeanie Gordon Acupuncture, Golden Cross, East Sussex

 

Barracloughs

“Pearce Marketing did a fantastic job of running two branding research workshops with staff and clients to help our corporate rebranding exercise.  They developed the structure of the workshops, associated materials and facilitated both sessions.  This gave us a very clear direction for the design brief and an excellent insight into how our business is perceived.  They also introduced us to a first class designer/brand consultant and everyone who attended the events thought they were enjoyable and thought-provoking.”

Jeremy Heynes, MD, Barracloughs

 

Hands on History

“Emma of Pearce Marketing was recommended to us by a friend and we have been so pleased with all she has done for Hands on History! Her friendly, practical and knowledgeable advice helped us to identify what is the most important and unique part of our business and navigate our way through how to achieve more work in this area. We now have a business where the number of school bookings has increased three-fold. 

 She has worked hard, along with our web designer, to recreate our website which is now much easier to navigate and properly optimized which has already brought us lots of new work and contacts for the future. Emma has also helped us to re organise some of our office practices, set up a database for our school enquiries, use Mailchimp to connect to our schools customers and given us Facebook training.  Emma is fast and efficient, gives sound, up to date advice and sees your business from a different perspective which helps you move forward and improve what you do for your customers.  We will be using Pearce Marketing in the future and have already recommended her to other businesses.”

Daryl and Martin, Hands on History, East Sussex

 

Fresh Financials

“When I rebranded my company I knew I needed a new website and wanted to be sure it was easily found online. I contacted Pearce Marketing for SEO assistance. Emma researched my company, what it offers and what people were likely to enter into the search engine.  My company now ranks on the first page of Google for all the relevant searches and mostly comes up No 1. (It even ranks above Xero on some searches!). Emma is clearly very knowledgeable in her field and it is always a pleasure to work with her.”

Emma Northcote-Green, Owner, Fresh Financials

The Travel Concept

“We don’t have a marketing department and Emma has been a complete breath of fresh air! Emma came to our office, spent time getting to know our business and gave us a marketing audit. From there Emma presented us with some great effective marketing ideas to improve on what we were already doing. We have implemented most of these ideas and are already seeing fantastic results! Emma is professional, easy to work with and creative. We wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending Emma’s services”

Business Edge Technologies

“Emma is very professional and dynamic.  After five years of trading we needed some customer research and a marketing audit to report on how we were performing for our clients. Her telephone interviews, asking for honest information from our customers, have assisted us with knowing how we can improve our customer care and reassured us that our customers are in the main very happy. It was also beneficial in planning for future marketing activities. I highly recommend Emma of Pearce Marketing.”

Graham Compton, MD, Business Edge Technologies, Telephone & Network Systems, Hastings

 

Fresh Solutions (BM) Ltd

Mary Reed, Business Development Director of Fresh Solutions (BM) Limited, a Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management

 

Sharnfold Farm & Shop

“Emma Pearce has taken our marketing to a new level: branding; email marketing; social media etc. They’re the things that I would break out in a cold sweat over – Emma makes them appear straightforward. She is always at least one step ahead and always able to advise and find the best solution in the time frame specified. I would recommend Pearce Marketing wholeheartedly.”

Dennis Hilsdon, Owner, Sharnfold Farm & Shop

 

Plastica Pools

“We called in Pearce Marketing to give us a fresh and independent view on how to significantly improve our quotes and marketing materials for a specific commercial product range. Emma raised a number of perceptive points and gave us some excellent recommendations regarding improving our processes too. As a result of this, along with her momentum in implementing a number of activities, we have seen a vast improvement in sales and internal efficiencies, as well as receiving positive comments from customers. We are very pleased and will continue to work with her on other marketing projects. We definitely recommend her.”

Ian A Warne, Finance & Operations Director, Plastica Pools

Weather Front Ltd (EnviroMonitors)

“Our Marketing Audit with Pearce Marketing was a great way of reviewing our current activities with a fresh pair of knowledgeable eyes. Emma had clearly researched our sector and prepared well for the workshop.  Her marketing skills provided us with valid suggestions for enhancing and expanding our current activities.  Following the Marketing Audit we felt we were able to direct our time and resources in the correct way and not head off in the wrong direction.”

Liz Bishop, Director, Weather Front Ltd 

 

Mounty Ltd

“I employed Pearce Marketing to undertake some customer research and create a marketing plan that I simply wasn’t able to find the time for. My concern had always been that a third party couldn’t possibly do as good a job as I could myself as our products and market are somewhat niche! I found Emma to be incredibly on the ball. After an in depth meeting, Emma had a clear grasp of our business and went off to do some invaluable work that has resulted in solid answers; a clear way forward and an increase in sales. Emma dealt directly with some of my clients and their spontaneous feedback was “Emma is professional and exceptional to deal with”. As a small business we can’t afford a full marketing consultancy, but we’re now able to work with Pearce Marketing paying by the hour if needs be, which makes marketing possible for us now. Fantastic, a pleasure to work with, all you need to do is meet her!”

Ruth Ryan, Director, Mounty Ltd

 

Martin Riley Leadership Development

“Emma not only knows her marketing, but her upbeat manner and can-do attitude make her a pleasure to work with. When you subcontract, you’re paying someone to solve a challenge or take away a problem. You’re asking someone else to save you time, money and most of all energy that you can spend more effectively elsewhere. Engaging Emma for my marketing activities has done just that – and produced some exceptional results.”

Martin Riley, Managing Director, Martin Riley Leadership Development

“The customer research is great.  It is objective and given us important insights into what our customers are thinking.  The marketing plan is very comprehensive.  We are confident that your marketing tactics will get us more sales.”

Ruth Austin, MD, Aviamax

I have no hesitation in recommending Emma’s work as she will bring real value to your business.”

Jim Christy, Hub Director, East Sussex Enterprise Hub/SEEDA

 

The Cooden Beach Hotel

“Emma has done an excellent job for us. She helped us to set up and launch email marketing and create fresh, branded and cost-effective advertising templates so that we can continue with this ourselves.

It is good to work with someone that focuses on measuring marketing success and keeping costs at a realistic level.”

Avril Withers, Sales & Marketing Manager, Cooden Beach Hotel 

 

More Than Handy Limited

“Emma at Pearce Marketing has done a great job in getting us focused on our marketing strategy. She gathered some great customer feedback and provided us with an excellent marketing plan.

We are looking forward to working with Emma on the next stage. I have recommended Emma on many occasions without hesitation.”

Nathan Hayward, Director, More than handy Limited

 

Ace Joinery Solutions

“Emma’s independent telephone research was amazingly useful. We now understand what our customers’ value most which will definitely help with developing our sales and marketing materials, as well as internal resource planning.

We will continue to use Emma to assist with delivering our marketing plan.”

Chris Addison, MD, Ace Joinery Solutions

Jonathan Winchester, Managing Director Shopper Anonymous UK

insightful and practical marketing plan and is now helping us to implement our marketing.

We have more to do, but we all feel that we have a structure to our marketing and the business will benefit.”

Nigel Faulkner, MD, Faulkner Associates, Chartered Architects

 

Howard Bros Joinery

MAS/Leanerlink

“Emma and I have known each other for a number of years via the Profitnet group organised by Brighton University. During this time I was able to see how effective Emma’s marketing approach impacted the companies she was involved with. Once Emma started her own operation it was easy to find clients with whom she would work well with and on this basis we have entered a number of agreements that have resulted in very happy clients.”

Gary Barr, Associate Operations Specialist at Manufacturing Advisory Service South East and Owner/MD of Leanerlink Ltd
