This basically means writing things like websites, press releases, brochures and advertisements, and devising plans for organisations to promote themselves to their customers and other audiences.

What is special about your business - what makes it a great place to work?

It offers a really cost-effective, hands-on service to companies who might otherwise struggle to pay for professional marketing support. My clients know that when they appoint me, they get me doing the work - I don't farm it out to a junior.

How many people do you employ?

Just me.

What skills and qualities do you look for in new employees? Why should people look at jobs in this sector?

I don't employ anyone but I am happy to offer advice and guidance.

What other job roles do you have in your business?

I do everything myself but I do outsource some work, such as doing my book-keeping and accounts.
