saving you time & money!



Consider this scenario ... if you had a leaky tap or pipe, you’d call in a plumber, wouldn’t you? So, if your marketing is not delivering, doesn't it make sense to get some marketing expertise?

WHY CHOOSE APS?

APS are a marketing consultancy focusing on small businesses. SME’s need marketing help, but don’t have the budget or need for an expensive marketing agency, so APS offer clients flexible, affordable marketing advice and hands on help as and when they need it.

WHY IT WOULD WORK FOR YOU?

For smaller businesses, a lack of time, resources and expertise often results in marketing activity which doesn’t get the response you were hoping for, wasting your valuable time and money, however with some expert help, your budget could be better spent … by outsourcing to us who can save you that time … and probably some money too, starting with your first marketing consultation (up to 60 minutes) completely FREE of charge (and I'll buy the first coffee).

NO ‘ONE SIZE FITS ALL’ SOLUTION

APS will produce a tailored marketing solution that’s right for your business, because everyone’s different, right? With 25+ years’ experience gained at marketing agencies, large companies, mostly with local retailer networks, I know there’s no ‘one size fits all’ in marketing. This is how it works … I work with you to understand your goals, who your target audience is, where they are and find the best marketing routes to reach them, to maximise return on your investment by doing marketing that works for you!
