About Me

Hello, I’m Denise Strohsahl, small business marketer and copywriter

Languages and communication were always my thing. Which is why, for a very long time, I wanted to become a journalist. Until I tried my hand at advertising copywriting and noticed that was waaay more fun.

Putting the voice of a company or the benefits of a product into words is amazing. But the underlying principles of marketing fascinated me as well.

So I learned the ropes as marketing assistant and marketing manager. And I was even happier when I was able to combine both skill sets as creative director.


Connecting the creative with the strategic side of marketing was also on my mind when I started sandstonecastles, an Edinburgh-based marketing consultancy for small business owners, in March 2010.

Starting my own small business and making a living off doing what I love was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. And helping small business owners who feel the same achieve their goals and reach out to their ideal clients puts a smile on my face. Every day.
