Marketing is the lifeblood of all businesses and the ways in which successful businesses reach their audiences is forever changing. Therefore it’s important to plan and review your marketing strategy from time-to-time.

A strategy is ideal to help you consider your business direction in a focused way. Considering who you are, what you do and where you want to go.  It will help you focus on what you should be saying to your customers, the best way to say it and the different options to market your products or services. Developing a plan will enable your business to perform better and grow. Because marketing reviews all areas of how your business works, your customers will ultimately benefit – increasing the likelihood of sales, repeat business and creating trust and confidence in your brand.

Simon Frost is a qualified marketer with 30 years’ experience in working with small and medium sized businesses in a wide range of sectors including financial services, retail, housing, health and leisure/entertainment. Simon enjoys the challenge of formulating new ideas and plans to raise the profile of businesses within their target markets and help businesses reach their potential.

Simon loves to create original copy for our clients whether it is for online use or for print; copy that will create interest, encourage discussion and communicate your products, services and ideas. Businesses need copy which is well-written and their audiences want to read. Good copy will attract attention, generate traffic to a website, educate or inform or create a desired response.

How and what we say is very important, and deciding which channel to use (e.g. website, print or social media) is crucial too.

  • Website pages
  • Articles for journals and magazines
  • Blogs
  • Case histories
  • Press releases
  • Articles (e.g. personality profiles, interviews, research pieces)
  • White Papers (e.g. providing an in-depth report or solution on a specific topic)
  • E-mail marketing (e.g. e-newsletters using Mailchimp and other software solutions)

Fixed prices can be agreed based on a reasonable hourly rate starting from 20 €.

Whatever sector or industry you work in, whether your business is large or small, Simon can help you review your business idea, create a new business plan, work on a new business model or to develop new services or products.

Simon has worked with start-ups during his career and loves the challenge of assisting businesses to turn their dreams into reality. His natural style is one of providing constructive advice and support to business owners, helping them to think through their ideas and overcome potential obstacles to ensure the success of their business.

So whether you are a UK based business seeking help and guidance or a French based enterprise that is looking to export to the UK or the English speaking market, then Hibou Communication should be your first port of call.

Contact Simon today for help in making your business dreams a reality.

Workshops – involving any number of people from 1 or more – can be a fun, interesting and effective way of helping businesses to review their Marketing and Business Plans or to develop a Social Media Strategy and Content Plan.

Simon recognises that every business is different and therefore Hibou Communication will discuss with you your requirements and produce a list of key topics to be covered and the desired outcomes. So whether you are looking to launch a new product, need to review your marketing or are seeking an independent view to help grow your business – Simon can help. Over the years, Simon has facilitated many workshops and enjoys helping people to realise their objectives, giving time and space to discuss important issues relating to their business idea or project.

Our workshops will last for approximately two hours but these can be adjusted to suit. Ideally the workshop will be held face to face, but for clients who are based in the UK or a significant travelling distance away, an online conference call (using Skype or Zoom) can be used effectively with the same result.

We will tailor the workshop to meet the needs of your business and it won’t cost the earth… Workshops can be held at your business location, home or another venue. Download our workshops or view our brochure here.

Our workshops are priced at an affordable €75 or £75 for teleconferences with UK clients.
