Why us

Robertson Collaborate has a reputation as the leading provider of outsourced “marketing director” services in the area. Both directors, Catherine and John, have held in-house marketing director roles and have been at the coalface of successfully growing businesses through marketing strategy and planning.

Outsourced “marketing directors” are a rare breed. There’s a scarcity of us and few would have our length of experience and across such a variety of sectors and with proven results. We’ve both worked across the full marketing mix. We don’t delegate the plan creation to someone junior. We both use our experience, each with over 20 years in sales and marketing, to create plans. We have experience in most of the main business sectors in the UK economy covering - business to business, business to consumer, business support & services, ecommerce & retail, entrepreneurial ecosystem, food & drink, life sciences, healthcare, professional services, start-ups, travel & leisure, tech & data science and third sector.

We’ve been there and done it but we are always learning too, committing to The Chartered Institute of Marketing’s annual continuous development programme of 35 hours of fresh learning a year. It’s a heady blend of rich experience with bang-up-to-date marketing know-how.

Our unique independent position means we can advise on all areas of the marketing mix, both online and offline. This gives small business owners the confidence to move forward with the right marketing to grow their business with the right partners, who we can recommend.

Achievements are expressed in case studies here .  Other publicly available reviews can be viewed on Google here – 100% of reviews are 5 star. The firm is also listed as a top three marketing company in the area following a 50-point inspection by Three Best Rated.

Once the rigours of developing the strategy have been defined, one of the hardest things about marketing is keeping up the momentum with it. Sticking to the plan, chipping away at marketing week in week out to deliver the plan takes real commitment from you and any agency partners. There is so much work for everyone to do – and you need those partners. They bring the expertise and skills you don’t have in your in-house team. We help bring you together, keep you working well together, often foresee problems before they happen, unblock any challenges that arise and get that project delivered!
