Lovely to meet you!
Hello, I’m Denise Strohsahl, a small business brand & marketing consultant helping you find the right marketing to grow.
In my experience, the hardest thing about small business marketing is to find your own, unique voice.
Also, a lot of people have a preconceived notion of what marketing has to look and sound like. But your marketing is as unique as your business. It reflects the way you’re doing business, your values & your goals. It’s a result of your business, not an add-on or necessary evil.
And if I’ve learned anything in my +20 years in marketing – working with both small & large businesses –, it’s that marketing is a longterm game. It’s not a quick fix and it needs both a solid strategy & execution to help you grow your small business.
Small business marketing with a customer focus
In small business marketing, it’s not just about what you do, but about how you do it. And every business relies on paying customers to make a living. So for me, the only sustainable way to promote your business is to focus on your customer. Make your business about helping them and it’s a win-win.
That’s why I started sandstonecastles marketing in 2010: To use my background in copywriting & marketing to help other small business owners achieve their goals. And Edinburgh seemed just the right place for it.
I’m a sole trader, not an agency (which is reflected in my marketing rates). But over the years, I have built up a network of talented sole traders & freelancers and we have successfully worked together on numerous small business marketing projects.
From web developers, illustrators, graphic & brand designers, photographers, SEO specialists through to copywriters & PPC experts – no project is too small or too big when it comes to helping you grow your small business.
