SOCIAL MEDIA

grace scott

My name's Grace Scott and I'm the founder and face behind meaningfulmarketing. I set up as a freelance marketer in December 2018 and went full time in February 2019. Since then, my business has grown and helped to support other businesses with all their social media and digital marketing needs. 

The inspiration behind meaningfulmarketing.org came when I realised that there was a common problem with small businesses using marketing agencies: they were fed up with the astronomical costs for little return, and being passed around a group of people who worked for the agency but didn't really take the time to "get" their business. 

Here at meaningfulmarketing.org, all my clients work directly with me so I can really take time to get to know them and reflect their business online in a way that truly represents them. As running a small business is complex and unpredictable, I never tie anyone down to a long term contract and offer short term/ongoing contracts, freelance work, day rates, and training to clients depending on their needs.

MY JOURNEY

Funnily enough, I never thought I'd go down the marketing route. Before I got here, I'd dabbled in business, startups, and entrepreneurship but thought I'd go into mental health work or join the police. As you can tell, that's not quite the way it worked out! 

My marketing experience started when I interned for the Google Top 10 start up mush, and then went onto to complete and receive my Master's of Science in International Marketing from Birkbeck College, University of London. In August 2018, I moved to Kendal, Cumbria from London and began my career as a marketing manager for five solely owned Lake District restaurants until going full time as a freelancer in February 2019. 

I wholeheartedly believe in supporting independent and local businesses of any size across the UK, and would love to help you with your marketing activities in a sustainable, ethical, and impactful way. 

If you'd like to get in touch, drop me an email at grace@meaningfulmarketing.org and I'll get back to you ASAP.

 

WHO I'VE WORKED WITH 

I've worked with small retailers, to sole traders, to independent restaurants. From cycling blogs to horsebox bars, charities to children's shoes, and designers to artists - I certainly have experienced a variety. I love working with independent businesses for three reasons: it's inspiring, it's rewarding, and I get to make a real impact. More importantly, here's what they had to say about me... 

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT ME

"Grace is a marketing maverick! Background: When I first set-up my freelance business alongside a retail management role, I struggled to prioritise my Instagram marketing. With all my focus being on new clients, branding, admin and building a website, it always got pushed to the bottom of my to-do list. That's where Grace came in to save the day! She went away and looked at all the facts and figures and worked out a tailored social media strategy for my business. Her plan was thorough yet easy to read and interesting, and the hashtag bank is a total life hack. Not only has she saved me hours of time and research, but I have noticed an improvement in my follower engagement. Win! Oh, and she's totally lovely and down-to-earth, so dealing with her is a breeze. Thanks, Grace!"
