You've got your social media platforms, you've done a few trade shows or client presentations, you've got your products in a few shops or services listed in trade publications but you're still not getting the results you know your product or service deserves. It's frustrating, overwhelming and frankly exhausting building your brand and business and getting the sales you need to justify why you started on this journey.
We ladies are notoriously wonderful at multitasking but sometimes we all need a helping hand, a nudge in the right direction and some motivation and tips from others in the same position. There are so many inspiring women out there who know what they're doing and are offering products and services that you can learn from; we can all learn from each other, that is the beauty of being female….we ask for help and are happy to give it!
This is the dawn of a new culture where new entrepreneurship stands against the dated live-to-work, chained-to-the-office lifestyle once heralded as the necessary sacrifice of success, in favour of a healthier, happier, home-grown business model - resulting in outstanding services and original, covetable products. We all chose this route for a reason; following our passions and skills to create the perfect lifestyle for ourselves and families. So do not be daunted by the thought of building your brand and business. With the right channels and support we can all achieve great things.
I am Anna Wilson, a Brand Strategist, Startup Advocate, Online Evangelist and mother-of-two. Cutting my teeth in the luxury drinks and arts’ world, building international brands across multiple channels; beauty and the finer the things in life have never been far from my thoughts. However it was my early career in email marketing (who knew that was going to take over the world eh?) that has really brought all my skills full circle in this digital age. I, like an expanding community of entrepreneurs, have embraced technology and redefined success on my own terms.
I left my corporate job four years ago when it sadly became apparent that some work environments, living rurally and new mums don't mix. I took my skills and experience and started Anna Wilson PR - helping independent brands with creative but strategy driven PR and marketing campaigns. I became a 'mini in-house' branding expert to fantastically passionate companies all over Scotland and took their brands online.
After a three year journey of discovery, it transpires that:
I am so excited about Kit and Kith, the new EVENT, MARKETPLACE and COMMUNITY that inspires, advises and promotes rural working women. I have set it up as a social enterprise so that proceeds can go to help other women left in a tricky situation when it comes to work and family. We hope to be able to support them with free marketing services and membership to Kit and Kith so they too can find success on their own terms Learn More
So, join us on this exciting new journey to build a new culture, a community of women, a women's economy.
