Sarah Ainslie, Freelance Marketer
I am an experienced, qualified freelance marketing professional based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. I work with SME businesses (and a few large ones too!) to step in and take on any tasks you would expect an employed marketing manager to undertake.
I come from a creative background; studying graphic design and art history at university before embarking on a career in marketing in 1997 and qualifying with the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
My pre-freelance (pre-lance?!) career was primarily spent working in-house in the marketing departments of various organisations in the public and private sectors. This, and working closely with owner/managers, gave me a great insight into what businesses need and how they work.
My Foray into Freelance
In 2007 I got bored. I longed for more variety, more flexibility and more creativity so I took the plunge and quit my steady-boring-job and entered the uncertain-exciting-world of self-employment! Freelance gave me all these things and more. I love working with a number of different clients and companies, each requiring a different solution and approach. I now work in industries as varied as wine law and elderly care, security and skills development, fitted kitchens and flash mobbing!
I enjoy putting plans and campaigns together, I express myself creatively by working with designers and web developers and I get to fulfil my love of writing through blogging and content management. I don’t think I’ll ever go out and get a ‘proper job’ again!
If you know you need marketing help but are undecided between a freelancer, an agency or an employed marketing manager you can read why a freelancer is the answer (in my humble opinion!).
If you think that I could add value to your business and want to find out exactly how I could help drive your marketing forward then give me a ring on 01924 820273 or send me a message and let’s talk; our first meeting is always free and without obligation.
