I decided to launch Only Marketing as the world’s first entrepreneurial marketing agency because creative consultancies have turned their backs on the SME sector.
They would rather work with big brands with deep pockets than invest their creativity in dynamic fast growing businesses.
As a serial entrepreneur I’m super-excited about putting my time, energy and passion into building an agency that empowers entrepreneurial businesses to grow faster.
Small companies with visionary leaders are the job creators of today and the wealth creators of tomorrow and, for me, there’s not a more exhilarating sector for a marketing agency to be working in.
Entrepreneurs are different from people running lifestyle businesses and CEOs managing big corporations. They think differently, they’re impatient and they don’t suffer fools gladly.
They’re better leaders than managers, they’re emotionally involved with their businesses and they expect everyone else to be as passionate as they are.
With entrepreneurs, every penny is a prisoner and they want every pound or dollar that they invest in marketing to pay a rich return on investment – and that is the crux of problem for many marketing agencies.
They find it difficult operate in a time-sensitive environment where every penny of expenditure has to be justified. It’s an atmosphere we thrive in. We’re able to hit the ground running because Only Marketing is totally different from every other agency on the planet. It’s been designed specifically accelerate the success of fast-growing SMEs and well-funded start-ups.
We’re not interested in working with big companies. Every other marketing agency on the planet is happy to look after them. Neither do we wish to work with humdrum lifestyle businesses.
We only want to work with entrepreneurial companies where the founders are putting their heart and soul into revolutionising the sectors in which they operate.
I, and my exceptional team, do the same. We match our clients’ energy, passion and dedication when it comes to achieving commercial results.
We have ripped up the marketing rule book and we do whatever it takes to ensure our clients achieve the financial success they’re striving for. That’s why:
There’s no other agency in Britain, or the world for that matter, with an entrepreneurial mind-set, an innovative structure and inventive services.
Over the years I have founded or helped to spawn numerous businesses and not all of them have been in the PR and marketing sector.
Wine, whisky and travel insurance are only three of the sectors where I’ve achieved my dream made a shilling or two as an entrepreneur.
I’m now ready with my entire team, to put our backs into helping dozens of other entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.
