I first opened my eyes to what Emma does at one of her community business meetings she runs in London Colney 

After working alongside my partner Paul 20 something years into his trade, we thought we’d tried and tested most marketing strategies and were tired of failed attempts at getting the right customers in. 

How wrong were we! Step by step, Emma showed us what marketing actually is and how it should be applied to our very small business – how you need to get out there and show off your stuff – how branding is so important and the first impression you create for your customers. Her social media content planner is now my weekly bible. 

With Emma’s help we’ve made small changes to how we work but these have had a big impact and once Emma’s happy we move onto the next step. And whilst we pay our monthly fee for the package we signed up to it doesn’t stop there. Anything marketing related I now ping Emma’s way for a quick look and reassurance that I’m doing it right! 

Emma is a natural leader and a loyal soldier to her customers and goes over and above in everything she does. Would highly recommend Emma and Amber Mountain marketing to anyone. Thanks Emma!

As a small firm providing support to employers on people management and leadership development, image is important to us, but our marketing budget is limited. 
I contacted Amber Mountain Marketing for support in developing a marketing strategy that targeted our ideal clients but with limited resources. They did not fail to deliver. 

Their discovery questionnaire was a great tool to get us thinking about what we were offering our clients and what we wanted to achieve. They emailed the draft strategy within days of receiving our input and arranged to go through the strategy in detail with me. Their approach was friendly and collaborative. They listened to my questions and didn’t make me feel stupid in asking them! 

I am an action focused person and put the first of your strategies in place the following day. I cannot tell you how delighted I was when I signed a new client just 24 hours on, as a direct result of this single suggestion. I can’t wait to see the impact of the other things you suggested. 
I cannot thank Amber Mountain Marketing enough and would highly recommend them to all of my contacts.

Amber Mountain marketing are amazing! 

Their passion energy and desire to help small businesses is testament to the driving force behind it all, Emma Ellis. I’ve been fortunate to work with Emma to sort out a solid marketing strategy for my business! Emma’s passion and enthusiasm to help us is undeniable. Emma’s knowledge supersedes anyone I’ve met previously and She has helped our business implement a solid marketing plan and has transformed our negative but mostly fearful attitude, towards anything marketing related. From the start Emma took the time to understand our industry despite it being quite niche.

I actually look forward to our sessions as Emma is a do’er and will always help us get things done. Delivers on all her plans for us without much waiting time. The results speak for themselves. More patients, more revenue. More visibility, more revenue, more followers more revenue.

Emma is an integral part to our business. The mountain we once feared is now a small bump we fly over and LAUGH at. Thanks Emma and the team at amber mountain.

Brilliant service! Second to none. Emma has helped me grow my business through her marketing. I have gone from teaching in a small community centre to now running my own dance studio. She is super professional, extremely personable and takes time to get to know you and your brand.

She’s always there to assist and preparing the next step to help grow your business. She goes above and beyond to do the best she can for you.

If you are looking to grow then I would highly recommend Amber Mountain Marketing.  

Laura Hazell, Herts Pain and Injury Clinic

Emma has been absolutely amazing! She’s helped us no end with all aspects of our business. We’re growing month by month and it’s all thanks to her! When we had our first session with Emma, our marketing was disorganised and very limited and we’d never set foot in any kind of networking event. She helped us develop a marketing strategy and get over our fear of networking! I honestly couldn’t recommend her more, she’s great to work with and a true asset to our business!

Emma has been working with me to build a marketing plan for my business. I really like the way the Emma empowers you to take action and knows the steps that need to be taken in order to grow the business. She helps me to reflect on strategies that I have tried and what needs to be done next. Although she often pushes me out of my comfort zone, the rewards are evident already. I highly recommend Emma if you are looking to understand marketing and want someone who is fun and easy-going to work with.

Thanks Emma! 

Best Business Women Awards 2019 Finalists announced

The Best Business Women Awards have announced their finalists  for 2019. The business world is full of talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs who not only run successful businesses but, in many cases, also juggle the needs of their families. The Best Business Women Awards are designed to recognise the achievement of those women across a wide range of business categories from women across the UK.

We are pleased to announce Emma Ellis has been shortlisted as a finalist in the best new business category. Emma has worked extremely hard over the past 18 months to get Amber Mountain Marketing up and running and now has 3 employees and looking to grow this to 5 by next month.   Supporting small businesses is Emma’s passion and Amber Mountain Marketing is already supporting over 20 local businesses to grow. 10 if which are on the new apprentice package which allows small businesses to have an apprentice from as little as 1/2 a day a week to implement their marketing strategy on their behalf at a low cost to their business.

Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said ‘This is the 5th year of these prestigious awards. We were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK. This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement. Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Well over 80% of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.’

Emma was over the moon to be a finalist and said ‘ I am delighted to be recognised for my hard work, and am truly grateful to work with so many lovely businesses in such a short space of time.  I also have the best team in the world!  Tamzin never gets enough credit for the work she does behind the scenes and I would crumble without her.  Our apprentices Tia and Liv are just flying and have grown so much in such a short space of time and I look forward to building our business together.  It’s true what they say, find a job you love and you will never work again’

The gala final of The Best Business Women Awards will be held on 11th October 2019 at The Tower Hotel in London when the winners will be announced.  Emma, Tamzin plus fellow finalist and client Naomi Czuba will be there with their dancing shoes on.  Fingers crossed to all the finalists!  We already feel like winners, so thank you Best Business Women Awards.

Woohoo we won an award!

It was a great week for Amber Mountain last week when we attended of the St Albans Business Community Woohoo Awards.  This community was set up by the amazing Sue Wybrow to help promote businesses in St Albans and the surrounding area. Members of this community each nominated a local business that they felt deserved recognition for its success, and Amber Mountain were lucky enough to win!   

We were recognised for being an Altruistic business that supported small businesses to succeed through marketing and also for our affordable new apprenticeship package that launches next week. We are over the moon to be awarded a Woohoo! 

We feel so lucky to be part of the community and absolutely love helping small businesses become even better at what they do!

Emma got very drunk and rightly so!
