Marketing Mentoring

Marina Ibrahim - cross-cultural coachSupporting creative and designer maker business owners in gaining clarity, focus and direction, winning clients and developing a strategic and structured marketing plan.

The brief

Lots of business do not have a clear marketing plan and very often they use a scattergun approach when it comes to using all different social media, tools and channels. I help them in getting back to basics and focus on the most important thing: Winning clients and growing their business.

 Here’s what a few of our clients say about me…

“The mentoring support has provided me with real support and forced me to evaluate where my business is and where I would like it to be. Often the things that you’re not dealing with are often the areas that need the most attention. In working with my mentor I have been able to overcome some of the fears of these and have addressed them head on, allowing me to look at the viabilities within my business, as well as the areas that need to be left behind. I find myself now with clearer focus and clarity of direction and I would happily recommend the mentoring scheme to anyone at a crossroads in their business!

“Marina is a business coach with an open mind and positive outlook. I have found her non-judgmental, yet realistic and she has enabled me to take a really hard look at the reality of my business. She has directed me with the encouragement that I needed to set goals and has in turn set tasks which have facilitated me in finding the answers. I have found that Marina’s intuitive nature enables her to get to the areas of issue quickly and her straight talking means that they’re addressed without fuss. I have really valued Marina’s time and input in to my business thus far and my hope is to continue working with her and to realise my goals.” (Sarah Kelly, Saloukee Jewellery Design)

“I went to Marina looking for help in putting structure behind my marketing. I know all the different tools that can be used for marketing but I was struggling to pull together a consistent approach to completing my marketing on a day to day basis. Marina helped me focus on who my customer was, pulling together a detailed profile of them. We then looked at all the different tools that I could use, evaluating each so I have a top 10 list of the avenues to focus on. Then finally we pulled together an ideas diary which helps with my marketing content. I am now able to write my full marketing strategy and to draw up a monthly, weekly and daily action plan for my marketing. 

“Marina has helped by running through each step, allowing me to focus on doing my marketing in a consistent manner. This is hugely beneficial for my business and when I start to put into practice my daily actions over the next few weeks I am sure my business will start to grow. Thanks for your help during the mentoring sessions, it has been a massive help.”

“Can I just say how much I appreciated our sessions. I found it so helpful for someone from the outside looking in to give me a clearer perspective. I felt a bit like I was running myself into the ground and was so exhausted at times I could not think straight. I really enjoyed our friendly chats and have the confidence to go forward and expand my business in many many areas! Bring it on…” Emma Burton / My SoulSpace
