Frequently Asked Questions

Who’s it for?

START Marketing Meetings are specifically designed to help independent business owners, or those wishing to start their own business soon, who are looking for marketing support, accountability and expert guidance.

Pitched at a basic to intermediate level, we use minimal jargon and have total appreciation for the fact that you may consider yourself to be a technophobe!

The meetings are open to both men and women and there are no rules about one profession per meeting.  We ask everyone to be respectful of other’s decisions and their knowledge, experience and confidence levels.  Our meetings are supportive, encouraging and nurturing.


Where are the meetings held?
In our beautiful riverside offices at Rosewells Boathouse, Walton Marina, Walton on Thames, Surrey. (Map)

What happens at a meeting?
We’ll begin by running through the 12 points of the START Marketing Strategy and Plan and explaining how each step integrates with and supports the others.

Next we’ll present a specific step and explain why it’s a key activity that is worth trialing and how it could work for your business.

You’ll then have the opportunity to start work on the step that will most help your business move forward, using our detailed worksheets.

We’ll conclude by setting goals for the month ahead.

Do I have to have my business idea completely sorted, with business cards, a website and customers?!
Absolutely not!  In fact, we’d particularly love to welcome you if your business is still at concept stage!

Which topics will be covered?
Each meeting will be tailored as much as possible to our attendee’s needs, but subjects that are covered by the START Marketing Plan include:

  • Marketing Strategies for Success
  • Winning Websites
  • Search Engine Seduction
  • Clever Content Marketing
  • Love Your List – Email Marketing
  • The Magic of Mail – Direct Mail Marketing
  • Effective Advertising – On and Offline
  • Perfect Pitches – Selling in Person
  • Selling Socially – Social Media Marketing

I really enjoyed digging deep to understand more about my business and exactly who I am targeting.  

I feel so much clearer on the purpose of my business and who my customer is.
