About Us

Just because you run a small business, it shouldn’t mean you have to have limited marketing capabilities and options. Just because it doesn’t make financial sense for you to employ your own marketing team, you shouldn’t have to accept that some marketing channels are outside of your use.

Too many marketing agencies will sell you what they do, telling you it is perfect for your needs. If they are an online agency, they may never talk to you about direct mail or trade shows, but what if they were perfect for you? Unless you work it out, you will be losing out.

At SME Needs we believe that every small business can have the marketing mix that makes sense for them. That is why our primary role is to manage your marketing, rather than do it for you. Our focus is on working with you to identify the right marketing channels to get the right marketing messages in front of the right people – to generate the leads that will grow your business.

The Perfect Mix

There are three groups of people, perfectly mixed together, needed to deliver the growth you are looking for:


You and your team


The SME Needs team


The right third parties

We help you determine the right ingredients and the right mix. We then manage that mix, ensuring it delivers the results you are looking for.

The SME Needs Team

Nigel – Virtual Marketing Director

I’ve been a small business marketing consultant for over 10 years now, and working in small business marketing roles for nearly 20. I love seeing the results of our work and the growth that delivers.

Outside of work you’ll find me playing golf, reading Tom Clancy books (don’t judge me) or on my bike. However this may change very soon as we are just about to get a Romanian rescue dog – I’ve a feeling she may take up a chunk of my cycling time!


Jane – Designer

I am a happy designer with more than 15 years’ experience in publishing and design businesses. My experience ranges from working for serious large business, to quirky smes, to fun-loving bright and bold children’s companies. Each job takes on a life of it’s own and that’s what I love most about what I do.

My not so new passions are illustrations and infographics (they really are proof that a picture can be worth a thousand words!).

I spend most of my spare time with my two gorgeous and very energetic children and any energy I have left I like to spend on music (I play the flute and aspire to play several other instruments) and books.

Felix – Marketing Assistant

As the newest addition to the SME team I bring a fresh prospective and pool of talents. I primarily write and create content for our clients to help maximize the impact of their marketing strategies.

The commercalisation of information for marketing purposes is a personal passion of mine as it allows me to combine my writing experience in academic articles, blogs and research papers with my degree.

Outside of work (under normal circumstances) you’ll most likely catch me on the beach trying to muster the courage to go for a swim or at the pub!
