Natalie Brannigan
Small Business Marketing Mentor

I’m Natalie Brannigan owner and founder of the award-winning Little Marketing Company. I offer a wide range of services. I can help you analyse your marketing and decide how you will move your business forward. I also help businesses create a marketing strategy and plan unique to their business and needs, I run online workshops and seminars to really help business owners gain a better understanding of marketing. I’ve worked in marketing since 2005 for various organisations from private sector, public sector, Business2Business, Business2Consumer, Local Authority, Government and Charity. I have a business studies degree and I am a member of the chartered institute of marketing (CIM). 


Over the years I’ve learnt the tools and techniques needed for successful marketing. I became passionate about giving advice to small businesses on their marketing and seeing their business grow. From this I decided to set up my own business to advise and support small businesses with their marketing. And so, The Little Marketing Company was born! 


Here at The Little Marketing Company, as your marketing mentor, I’m committed to helping small, medium and start-up businesses to grow, evolve, and reach their true potential through effective marketing strategies and activities. 


I understand that, for many SMEs, tight budgets, limited time, and limited resources, mean that marketing can often fall on the back burner. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I firmly believe that businesses of all shapes and sizes should have access to the marketing tools, knowledge, and expertise they need to grow.
