The concept of Flamingo Marketing Strategies Ltd happened at around 1am on Monday 6th May 2019.

I’ve always wanted to start my own marketing business. I live and breathe marketing and I can never turn it off; I go for meals and I analyse the marketing on the food menu, the offers and all around me in the decor. I go to the theatre and I pick up flyers and check out all the banners promoting the upcoming shows. I have an obsessive thought process whereby when anybody tells me about their business, as they are talking I’m writing a mental checklist of all the things they should and could be doing to help solve their problems.

Throughout my various marketing roles from my first Marketing Executive role for a small-ish manufacturing company right though to my most recent Head of Marketing for a Global software PLC, deep inside me I’ve always known that one day I want to start my own marketing business and help multiple organisations understand what successful marketing and lead generation looks like. It’s not a skill that people just know. Unless you’re fully qualified and you’ve been around the block a few times, it’s not easy to understand the concept of how to be an effective marketeer, and you constantly have to keep up with the changing times to succeed in this modern world that we live in.

I know that I can help those who don’t understand marketing (nor do they want to understand) but need to do something different in order to make their business successful.

So here I am

You’re probably thinking ‘That all makes sense… but why Flamingo Marketing Strategies?

Let me explain…

In my most recent role I once received a birthday card from one of my team, inside the words said ‘I hope you like these small memories from Italy (she’s Italian), it will never be enough to show you how happy I am to have you in my life and have met you on my path. You are the best boss I could wish for and you have a great heart. As the card says ‘Keep being the Flamingo’. (What’s funny is that the image on the front doesn’t make sense… as it’s a flamingo in a flock of flamingos… but that’s just typical me analysing every tiny detail…the card however, was lovely!)

Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that when I left my most recent role to start up my own business, it was some kind-worded text exchange with Veronica on the 6th May around 11pm that got me thinking ‘Yes I can absolutely do this and I know it’ll make me happy helping others’.
This card was still on my bedside table. And it all just clicked into place. It was a huge lightbulb moment and Flamingo Marketing Strategies Ltd was born.

You see, in this day and age there are businesses popping up left, right and centre. Competition is fierce and if you don’t stand out…you won’t succeed. Many small businesses start as one person who has never done marketing in their life…so how can they possibly know what to do to make themselves stand out from their competitors? Unless they take up a marketing qualification or invest in self-teaching in their spare time (because y’know, business owners have tonnes of that!) they naturally fall into a pattern where they follow what other people do in their field. They use the same style of website, the same tone and the same messages and then they wonder why they are struggling to acquire new customers year on year.

The bottom line is…

You need to stand out. What makes you truly different and how can you get that message into the market? You need to be the flamingo in a flock of pigeons and we can help you.

What makes us different?

If you're targeting local business, we won't work with any other companies from the same industry within an agreed mileage radius.

If you're targeting a national or international audience, we won't work with any other companies from the same industry AT ALL. Guaranteeing YOU to be the flamingo.
