I’m Jo-Anna Francis, but it’s always just Jo unless I’m in trouble!
With a twenty year career history primarily incorporating senior roles in sales and marketing, in 2012 I decided that the time was right to utilise my varied skills and experience to assist a range of businesses.
Having researched small businesses in the local area, the response was always the same from potential clients:-
“We can’t afford a full time marketing person.”
“Marketing consultants are so expensive, and whilst you end up knowing exactly what you should be doing, there’s still not enough hours in the day to get it done.”
“Our requirements are ad-hoc – we don’t need someone to help us all the time, just on a project by project basis.”
And so my business was established to provide professional and efficient marketing implementation and strategy support for soles traders / small businesses and entrepreneurs throughout Kent and further afield, offering all the services that a traditional in-house marketing department would provide, but with considerably increased benefits and flexibility.
I initially set up under the banner of Maidstone Virtual Assistant, promoting myself as a Marketing VA, however there’s a lot of confusion in the marketplace over the Virtual Assistant title (with many thinking that all VA’s provide admin and secretarial support) so, after seven successful years, I have rebranded to bring the business under my own name.
Having qualified as an Infusionsoft Sales & Marketing Expert, this is a key service for many clients who love the advanced marketing automation and intuitiveness offered by Infusionsoft but don’t have the time to implement effective campaigns and really harness the power that it offers their business.
I have also trained in Facebook Ads and Messenger Bots, further extending my skill sets and giving me the opportunity to broaden my offering to my clients. You can read more about the services I offer in the Work With Me section of the website.
I can help you develop your business and provide a real solution to your marketing problems. I have the knowledge to work through your marketing strategy with you but I also have the skills to be able to help you implement the marketing plan – I won’t just leave you to get on with it!
Efficient, cost effective, reliable and most of all, you only pay for the time and services you actually utilise. Not only do you not have to pay holiday pay and sick pay, you don’t even cover tea breaks and lunch breaks!
