Business Support Service for Small Businesses

9th July 2015

Jackie Cook, Managing Director and Founder of CQ Strategic Marketing, based in Sheffield has brought together a team of experts in fields including insurance, pension, legal, tender writing and PR.

The service, CQ 4 Small Biz, will provide fixed price marketing and business support packages for start up and small businesses. Managing Director, Jackie Cook who put together a team of specialists to deliver the packages said "I recognised a need for small businesses to be able to go to one provider for all their marketing, business support advice and training needs. These types of businesses don't have a marketing budget and need advice to be at a fixed price as small businesses can't risk an hourly rate cost running over." The team of experts that Jackie has put together has over 50 years experience between them giving small businesses a wealth of experience to draw on for their business that they haven't got in house. The team includes Jackie Cook who regularly presents on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) and is a Chartered Marketer and Kate Betts who regularly runs training sessions on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). The fixed price marketing and business support packages include: Marketing Strategy; Tender Process Training; Tender Writing; Graphic Design; Social Media Training; Website Design; PR How to Training; Press Release writing and distribution; Copywriting; Banner Stands; Promotional Items starter package; e-shots; Pension Auto-Enrolment; Business Insurance and Legal Documents. Jackie will be looking to add more business support packages to the CQ 4 Small Biz offer in the coming months in areas such as HR, Health & Safety, Raising Finance and Digital Law.
