Hi, I’m Andy Sarson

I work with ambitious small businesses who like me, recognise the positive impact well-thought out, structured and regular marketing can have on their business.
My job is to help them develop their marketing strategies, plans, and activities and understand how to reach their target audiences effectively and affordably.

There is NO magic marketing answer online or offline or any ‘one size fits all that’s why you have to get the fundamentals right before you spend any money on marketing activities. Plus, I promise there's no confusing marketing jargon!

If you’re a new start up or established business and know nothing about marketing (and might not want to?), or your marketing is not delivering expected results, or you’re ready to move your business to the next marketing level? Whatever your circumstances, I’m here to help!

I work with you to get your marketing right and see results AND give you back more of your valuable time to spend running your business and being with your friends and family … and maybe even save a little money too along the way?

You work directly with me in a one-2-one situation and discover the fundamentals of small business marketing so that you can make the right future marketing decisions to reach your objectives and business growth through development of:

- effective marketing strategies
- affordable marketing plans and activities to reach the prime target audiences
- a sound customer contact and relationship strategy
- strong business relationships with a structured, successful referral marketing programme

Having more than 30 years marketing experience gained at marketing agencies and large corporates, I aim to deliver a service that's right for you and your business at an affordable cost, not something 'off the shelf' (scroll down to see how we charge for our services).

So I am rightly proud to say APS Marketing Consulting are one of the leading marketing consultancies in the East Midlands and are the marketing partner to a range of flourishing small businesses and are renowned for developing and delivering flexible, affordable marketing solutions with increased return on investment.

What you get:

- Personal attention and guidance to help you understand marketing your business and how to implement it to get the best possible return on your investment.

- ‘Hands on’ help as and when needed.

- A document that sets out your marketing strategy, including what your offering is, who your target market segments are, what marketing activities you are going to be using and a marketing plan for your chosen time period (up to 12 months) that sets out timings, costs and tactics.

- An honest, straightforward and 'no jargon' approach.

- A complete marketing service supported by our trusted associates.

Whatever your marketing needs are, APS can help, so let’s meet (currently virtual of course) over a coffee for a FREE, no-obligation chat - get in touch TODAY!

Our charges are designed with the smaller business in mind and our aim to keep them affordable and as reasonable as possible.

We know that when you are starting a business, keeping one going through lean times or looking to expand, the costs can sometimes pile up and we bear this in mind. After all, we are a small business ourselves and understand exactly how you feel!

Our preference is to charge by the project, costing everything for you up front, so the ‘clock isn’t ticking’ and there’s no nasty, expensive surprises.

Depending on the type of work we are doing for you; we will always discuss the project with you fully and give a total cost before any work begins.

All we ask is that you pay 50% in advance, then balance on completion when you’re fully satisfied with what we’ve done for you.

We are sure you’ll like the way we work – honest, straightforward and no jargon – however if before any work begins after the free initial conversation you feel our service or price isn't right for you then there's absolutely no obligation to proceed. We want you to be just as happy about working with us, as we are with you!

If you would like to work with a marketing professional who takes time to understand your business and objectives, giving marketing advice and support at "value for money" prices, then please get in touch TODAY for a FREE, no obligation discovery chat to find out how APS can help you!
