How I Work…
I’m happy to work on a freelance / contract basis for digital agencies and businesses of any size. I currently operate out of my home office in Heathfield, East Sussex.
At the moment I’m only considering remote work due to Covid-19. I have all the required digital communication and project management tools to hand to make your day to day dealings with me simple and hassle-free. These include the use of Google Meet, MS Teams and Slack. I have been working and running businesses from home since 2011.
What software and tools do you have access to?
I have licences for a range of software applications that we use for web design, digital video and SEO projects. These include graphic design and video editing software using the Adobe suite of products and specialist SEO software that will help us to track rankings, carry out competitor analysis and keyword research. I also have access to a dedicated hosting environment should you need to host a website.
Can we meet up to discuss a contract?
At the moment I am not meeting any new clients face to face due to Covid-19. Even before Covid-19 came around I was well versed in using video conferencing and project management software tools to communicate with clients and manage projects and teams on a virtual basis.
What is the minimum period we can hire you for?
The minimum time period you can hire me on a freelance/contract basis is 3 months. My day rates are calculated based on the total number of days per week you’d like to hire me for and the complexity of the project/role. They range from £300 to £600 per day.
Business & Marketing Skills
I am a commercially focused agency director with experience of setting and managing revenue goals, growth and profitability.
My experience includes:
- Developing business and marketing plans aligned with the company’s objectives
- Managing the P&L, sales pipeline and financial planning process
- Driving the pitch process targeting both direct clients and partners
- Understanding and scoping the digital landscape to generate opportunities
- Developing and building high performing teams, including remote teams
I’ve a strong network of contacts in the digital space and extensive knowledge of current search, web and mobile technologies (including medical device apps), with a particular focus on the healthcare, pharma and medical sectors.
Since 2011 I have been involved in running a specialist healthcare digital marketing agency and a medical app development content site and directory. This experience has helped me to build up my own knowledge base of what works, and more importantly what doesn’t work when it comes to implementing practical and effective digital solutions in a highly regulated environment.
