Four Year Celebration for Virtual Marketing Room
Wakefield Bondholder, Virtual Marketing Room, is celebrating four years in business this month.
Set up back in 2012 with a five month old baby in tow, Leanne Sowerby took the hard decision not to return to her job as Sales & Marketing Manager for a southern based Internet Service Provider, but instead followed her dream of becoming her own boss.
Leanne comments: “My initial plan was to return my job once my maternity leave ended, but that would of involved travelling up and down the country and I was a little naïve when I was pregnant and didn’t anticipate just how things change when you give birth!
“I was involved in starting and running my brother’s business a few years ago so I thought I would give it a try. I had worked for and with small businesses for a long time and saw how marketing was often something that they struggled with so I decided that I would utilise all my skills and experience a become a Virtual Marketing Manager to try to help these types of businesses with all aspects of their marketing.
“My hard work was quickly rewarded as I started to win clients from relationships I had been building at networking events. Working for myself has really given me a great work life balance and I’ve learnt a lot along the way, good and bad but I’m still here to tell the story which is something I’m very proud of.”
Virtual Marketing Room provides affordable virtual marketing services to business owners and small to medium sized organisations.
