Shop local for Christmas and support your local business. There are so many good ones to choose from in Pembs and throughout Wales... Here's some of my favourites #smallbusinesssaturday  
A Costa coffee? Or a smoother, higher quality coffee at a slightly lower price in nicer surroundings. Or for tea lovers how about an orange and lemon rooibos tea with a luxurious handmade rose and vanilla truffle to set it off. A tongue-in-cheek welsh humoured… Continue reading →

I'm in search of small welsh businesses, any type, that stand out from the crowd and offer a great service. It's for a nice little blog on welsh businesses doing well!

Let me know if there is a small business near you who you love... #Wales #BusinessinWales

Anyone know Fishguard well....? I'm trying to locate a small vintage clothes and accessories shop on Main Street, Fishguard. It's not Edelweiss Antiques, but a smaller, newer one that's just opened.... just up the road from Edelweiss...


I visited it not long ago and can't for the life of me remember the name! I want to include them in a blog that promotes new welsh businesses...


Can anyone help!!

Freelance writing and marketing in Pembrokeshire
Introduction
Originally from Pembrokeshire, I moved to London in 2005 to pursue a career in marketing. I worked in a variety of roles for companies such as Burberry, RIBA and Charles Tyrwhitt. I settled and joined the marketing team in The Hemming Group where I stayed for just over 4 years. A high paced, varied and challenging role, I was involved in various campaigns and projects promoting magazine subscriptions and events.

Now back in Pembs I regulary blog and write, and help out all sorts of businesses with their writing and marketing needs.

If you're a small business I can work with you to define your brand and benefits, and put together some creative ways to reach and appeal to your target audience.

If you're a large organisation or marketing company I can work on specific projects or help out at busy times on a freelance basis.

Marketing today is very much about subtly promoting yourself and brand online. I keep up with all the latest marketing techniques but I keep the basics firmly in my mind - such as knowing the importance of good customer service, being friendly and approachable and knowing your product and target market inside out.
