We have worked with Sharon on a range of projects. Initially we were keen to look at online marketing and SEO and we tried a few companies before choosing Optimise Marketing. We felt working with Sharon was a great match for us as we are hands on in our company and we could see that she intended to give us the level of personal attention we pride ourselves on delivering to our customers. We felt she was interested in the growth of our company and really understood how niche our sector within the wider industry is and this is something that can be hard to emphasise to people outside of the “wedding bubble”.
We have since worked with Sharon on a complete rebrand, which was very exciting/terrifying and we feel we could not have achieved so much and in such a short space of time without her guidance and support. We are now working with Sharon on a continual basis and have found her monthly meetings and strategy and planning tools to be very helpful and are keeping us on target to achieve our aim of growing awareness around our brand.
Niamh White, Director
As a recent startup providing complex enterprise software systems, we approached Optimise Marketing from a starting point where we had virtually no marketing and only a basic web presence. Over the past six months Sharon has helped us to develop a digital marketing strategy which resulted in a complete overhaul of our website, much improved SEO, online advertising and e-mail marketing. As a result we have increased our sales pipeline three fold, and expect to close the first sales from contacts developed via these new channels over the coming weeks. I have no hesitation in recommending Optimise Marketing to anyone looking to improve, overhaul or launch their marketing strategy.
Tadhg Henderson, Managing Director
We first contacted Optimise Marketing as part of the Online Trading Voucher to assist us in improving our website ranking and search engine results. After our initial meeting, Sharon quickly identified how best to optimise our digital presence and also suggested other ways of improving our engagement and the personalisation of our services by the addition of a corporate video. Sharon guided us through every step and provided every possible assistance to ensure that her recommendations helped us achieve our goals.
Sharon is open-minded and at our first meeting created an easy rapport that enabled her to quickly understand what we were looking for (even if we weren't exactly sure ourselves) so allowing us to freely share and develop our vision of our company's mission and services. I would thoroughly recommend Optimise Marketing services to anyone.

Only Natural Health Food Store, Wexford
At an initial meeting Sharon outlined how her skills could be used to my advantage and proposed a marketing plan which we have since begun to realise.
Her grasp of how social media, a website presence and more traditional marketing techniques could all be harnessed to help Only Natural to communicate more effectively with its current clientele and, perhaps more importantly, reach out to our target market and win new customers has been invaluable to me. Sharon is hard working, knowledgeable and resourceful and it has been easy to build a relationship based on complete trust.
She has very capably helped to launch Only Natural onto a new marketing level and I'm excited about where we can go from here.

Rory's Story Cubes®, Belfast
"We engaged Sharon to lead some market research on our key distributors in advance of our major European and US trade shows in 2012/13. The research unlocked valuable insights about our distributors performance in key markets. This was information we would not have been able to gather ourselves, without her efforts.
Her knowledge of international markets has helped us work more closely and her ideas for bringing together our European and Asian partners helped strengthen the relationships within the Rory's Story Cubes® family.
Sharon's determination to find hard to access information and personable approach with our distributors helped us gather the data we needed. Her 'gentle' reminders also kept us focused on this important project, even when our attention was distracted by day to day activities.
If you operate in International markets and know that you really ought to work on your marketing strategy, then I would highly recommend you contact Sharon."

Nourrice Créche and Montessori, Wexford
Sharon has overseen a number of marketing and communication projects at Nourrice which have had very positive results. Sharon effectively outlines what needs to be done and applies just the right amount of pressure to complete each step of a project. She also liaises directly with our printers & web designers which has been invaluable from a time perspective. I find Sharon so easy to work with. She is professional, her ideas are exciting and she is very supportive in her approach. I look forward to each marketing project we embark on together which is not something I would have said before.

OLS Architects, Wexford
We engaged Sharon to help us refine our value proposition and produce professional customer focused tender applications that met all the necessary technical obligations but also made us stand out from our competitors. We were very successful in securing the majority of our applications and the whole process has helped us keep our customer to the fore of our future growth plans.
Olly Gogarty Fitness, Wexford
I have been working with Sharon and Optimise Marketing since Sept ’13. In that short time there has been a significant and measurable increase in the volume of inquiries for my services and I can categorically state that this is due to the practical and targeted marketing strategy that Sharon has implemented on my behalf.
When Sharon took on this project she committed to it 100% and proved to be thoroughly professional in her work. If you are looking to work with somebody who cares as much about your business as you do yourself talk to Sharon; I can guarantee she will deliver exactly what your business needs.
