Where do I even start with this one! The last two years have absolutely flown by, but what’s my biggest achievement and why does it mean so much?
I still remember the first day of being self-employed and thinking, what am I doing?! It’s scary to think that after 7 years into your career, you no longer have the safety net of a regular income and a team of people to support you. But I took the leap and I have never looked back.
I am over the moon to say that all of my hard work has paid off and KW Marketing is 2 years old this month. Without a doubt, my biggest achievement and one that I am extremely proud of.
With over 20 clients through the door, a network of over 2,000 followers and 4,000 email sends later, it’s safe to say that it’s been busy!
But what have I been up to?
I started my second year in business watching a brand that I have been working with from the ground up, open its doors to its first premises. The 10X Fitness Open Day was a huge success and they continue to flourish on a daily basis.
Over the summer I attended multiple food festivals which included long days, a lot of smiling, hard work and fun. Country File Live, Abergavenny Food Festival, Dartmouth Food Festival and specialist pop up events at Sandford Orchards and River Cottage, to name but a few. Working alongside such a fantastic team, made my summer fly by and one that I will never forget. Watching Pipers Farm grow and exceed every ambition has been an absolute pleasure and I can’t wait to see where they will be in the future.
Throughout the year, I have also launched various client websites across a range of industries and organised multiple conferences in the B2B sector, with the last SWBC Annual Dinner being held at Woodbury Park Hotel.
I started 2019 with a fresh new look, including a brand-new logo, website, process and Instagram. Our knowledge is greater, our experience is across a range of industries and our presence in the digital world is established. I wanted our branding to shout professional, knowledgeable and experts in what they do, and I think it’s done just that.
We are now almost halfway through the year and I am so excited to welcome 3 new dynamic brands into the mix.
I’ve watched revenues soar, social followings triple and email marketing databases perform better than ever before. I do what I do to get results and to make sure my clients are seeing ROI within their marketing activities.
1. Organisation is paramount
2. Transparency is key
3. Knowledge is power
4. Surround yourself with the best
To all of my clients, past and present, thank you for your continued support and making my dream of running my own business, a reality. The last 2 years have by far, been my biggest achievement to date. Here’s to another 2 years of learning, adapting and growing along with having a career that I am totally in love with every single day!
