A newly formed company recently asked me to come up with a year one start-up marketing plan to generate new business. They’d compiled a list of things they thought were needed like business cards, an 8-page website, some media advertising, media press releases and social media etc. They only had a tiny budget. Return on investment would’ve been one to ten in year one. So a business failure by insolvency where the wasted marketing budget is ten times the value of all the new business generated in year one.
We’re not talking about an eBay hobby trader here this is a serious person who needed to actually earn some cash from their work to pay the bills in year one.
My advice was not to waste any money on vanity projects. They don’t matter. Instead concentrate on the business cards and get “Google my Business” properly set up to gain reviews. Then if you want, have a single holding website homepage with a contact form.
Then get out there and use the network marketing social media channels to generate your new business in year one. Simple but very effective. Watch out for the magic figure of ten to one return on investment. This is where they’d make ten times the amount in new business generated, over what money was invested in their marketing. Result is a business success.

I’m a talented marketing professional. I first joined the CIM as an Affiliate Professional in 2007. I was then elected as full MCIM member by the CIM Chartered Institute of Marketing in July 2013. They don’t just give MCIM accreditation out; you do have to prove you’ve had at least five years’ work experience at actually being a professional marketer. Since then I’ve attained my 2016, 2017 and 2018 Chartered CPD certificates. These are issued once a year based on your actual work submitted to CIM and checked by CIM fellows. This is not for academic activity that was attained in the eighties, nineties or noughties!
After full industrial technical training for ten years, I started off selling print in the mid-1980s. As a result of the internet I now also have many digital media skills. I’ve plenty of traditional media experience, gained from 20 years’ working at many London agencies: Ogilvy, Hogarth, TMW, Group M, Alcone, and print production buying for Altavia-Group. I then went on to start my own business.
I first started my own personal agency in 2008, with the trading name “Journeys Multimedia”, I then changed to “MiE” in 2015, as this seemed more appropriate for the marketing services I offer.
