Cue the Swans We are a small marketing agency, working with sole traders, retailers and small businesses to give them the tools they need to grow their business.
We offer a full range of marketing services, from website development, social media management, email marketing, search marketing, design, print management and marketing strategy.
I’m Sharon Bradbury, the founder of Cue the Swans Marketing Agency. For the last 15 years I have worked in marketing, advertising and events for a range of businesses, from small start-ups to large corporates and for the last six years I have been working exclusively for a Sunday Times Rich List entrepreneur.
I have professional marketing qualifications in direct & digital marketing from the Institute of Direct Marketing, which is UK’s only government approved institute for the professional development of direct and digital marketers.
I set up Cue the Swans after my other half started www.teddingtontown.co.uk and help run Totally Locally Teddington – a campaign designed to sustain the local high street. I met and spoke to many business owners, who all had similar challenges and questions. How do I get more people visiting my website? I need to be better at SEO…but what is it?! How can I communicate with my customers when they aren’t in my shop, bar or restaurant?
So, I took the plunge and started up my very own small business, dedicated to helping your small business succeed!
Our ethos is to work hard for you, so running your business looks effortless. And whilst you may still look at me with a bit of fear and confusion when I talk about SEO and Search, you can relax knowing that you don’t need to understand Google’s new algorithm because we’ve got that covered. You can focus on running other areas of your business, knowing The Swans are behind the scenes doing anything you need us to do – so whether that’s planning, tweeting, developing your website or sending out emails, we’re here to bring it all together so your shop, business, restaurant or bar can grow from a signet to a swan…or even a bevy of swans!
A friend of mine always used this line ‘cue the swans’ to describe something that had been supremely well organised – I never really knew why until I randomly got drawn in to watching a Sunday afternoon film. It turned out to be Father of the Bride and the line was one that the wedding organiser uses.
