After working in the print advertising industry, I was amazed hearing over and over again how business owners felt about marketing. Many felt it was time consuming, confusing and yielded poor results. But, how could this be? I had fallen in love with marketing while studying the subject and found it to be captivating, exciting and crucial to business success.

After further discussions (or, professional badgering if you like) I came to the conclusion that many business owners don’t have the time or knowledge to market their brand in a result-driven way. So the idea was born – an offsite marketing manager, someone who can free business owners up to continue doing what they do best and leave the marketing to us! On January 16, 2015 Rushton Marketing became a reality.

    ‘Mainland Coachwork Ltd has been working with Ashleigh and her Rushton Marketing team for 3 ½ years. Rushton Marketing have recently designed our new web site. The process was professional and their concepts, ideas and the finished product are amazing. We have had positive feedback and a number of email enquiries for our web site.’

  • 12 months ago I engaged Rushton Marketing to help grow my business.  Ashleigh has been attentive, innovative, receptive to feedback, and a whole lot of fun to work with.  After our first meeting I relaxed, knowing I could shift my focus onto what I do best, and leave all marketing in Ashleigh’s capable hands.  Our marketing has been focused, well thought out, and Ashleigh has saved us money by measuring results and targeting specific areas.

    My business has gone from strength to strength since Rushton Marketing has been on board, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

    Rushton Marketing has been a breath of fresh air for our business. The team is super efficient and multi-talented with graphic design, social media and promotional skills, as well as helping come up with marketing ideas, campaigns and there execution. They are extremely well organised and are great communicators. They have certainly made life easy for us, allowing us to focus on our client relationships and generating sales.  I was really impressed with how they quickly learnt and understood our business and our clients. They really care. Thank you.

  • Ashleigh of Rushton Marketing helped us out when we were under time pressure to create an advert for one of the agricultural magazines. She was very prompt to respond and creative and efficient with her work. She crafted for us an advert of very high quality design in very short time. She is very skilled designer and I would highly recommend her professional services.

    I went to Ashleigh at Rushton Marketing as I needed a hand fulfilling marketing duties that I was finding hard to make time for. We now have a comprehensive marketing management plan in place that sees Rushton Marketing dealing with the majority of tasks for us, allowing me to get on with the day to day running of my business. Ashleigh was quick to jump on board this project and within the week we had the plan in place and she was busy working on the local advertising for us.

    Ashleigh at Rushton Marketing has helped me out a great deal in a short time. I had bought a  website package two months prior but I had no clue where to start nor did I have the time to work on it. I was also struggling with where to market myself locally having just returned from maternity leave. Ashleigh came up with a comprehensive marketing plan based on my target customers, the plan was great, easy to understand and included ideas I had never thought of. My website is now live and Ashleigh has showed me how to update this as I please. Thanks so much Ashleigh!

  • We had known Ashleigh from her previous employment position and found her insight into marketing very helpful. When we found out she was setting up her own company, we were very happy to have her come on board. Her knowledge has helped us to further our brand awareness in the Canterbury area thus far and we look forward to working with her more in the future and using her advice and knowledge to increase our brand awareness even further.
