We give you the support you need to succeed
Media & Marketing
Finding, securing and keeping clients is key to the success of your small business.
We help you to succeed by identifying and implementing effective marketing strategies and systems to achieve those aims and make more money.
Our primary focus is on your marketing, but we also have an eye on your procedures, platforms and performance and can offer a fresh perspective to overcome problems, pressures and pain points.
What we do
Red Shoes Media & Marketing champions small businesses to be the best they can be.
Communication is key, so we start by talking to you to carry out a thorough evaluation of where you are now and what’s standing between you and where you want to be…
Once we know where you are and what you do now, we can come up with a strategy which gets you to where you want to be. We look at all the tools in our marketing kitbag to devise a plan that suits your business.
We offer a full suite of marketing and communications services, including website design and management, content creation, social media, press and pr, email, branding and graphic design.
Company Brand or Rebrand
Branding conveys a strong message to potential clients about who you are and what your business stands for, so make sure yours is giving off the right vibe.
Communications and PR
Communication, communication, communication – it’s key to getting the right message about your business to the right people at the right time. We help with all aspects of communications from email campaigns to press releases.
Systems, software, procedures, policies and platforms
Although marketing is our mainstay, we can also give you a fresh perspective on how your business is working and what could be done better to make your business more efficient – and more profitable.
One Step At A Time
We consult, collaborate, champion and challenge to help you make your business the best it can be.

Why we are different
We don’t just swoop in, make outlandish and unrealistic suggestions and then leave you to implement alone.
Nor do we talk over you and think we know better than you what your business needs.
We are committed to working with you to do what is best for you and your business.
That is why we offer three levels of service:
- Do It Yourself (DIY) – you take our suggestions for new marketing strategies and systems and implement them yourself.
- Done With You (DWY) – We support you to implement your new marketing strategies. This can include training you and your staff in new skills through our Red Shoes Training Academy (COMING SOON).
- Done For You (DFY) – Together we decide which of our suggestions for new marketing systems and strategies you want to implement and we put them into action for you.
Our Vision, Mission and Values
Red Shoes Media & Marketing is on a mission to help small businesses grow and succeed by supporting them to identify and implement new strategies and systems which make them more effective and efficient.
Our vision is that Red Shoes Media & Marketing will be a champion for small businesses to help them be the best they can be by being the best we can be.

Who’s wearing the red shoes?
We really do walk the walk and not just talk the talk at Red Shoes Media & Marketing.
Red Shoes Media & Marketing is owned by Tracey Sweetland, a professional journalist with more than 25 years’ experience in local newspapers.
In 2014 she set up an independent newspaper with three colleagues and over the next five years grew the business by incorporating a design and marketing department, where she honed her skills in graphic design, branding, website design, social media and content creation.
Since setting up her own business in 2018, she has used those skills in an ever-growing consultancy capacity to advise businesses on their marketing strategy, as well as improvements to some of the systems, software, procedures and platforms which they use.
She now consults and implements the various aspects of the strategies she suggests to help small businesses succeed.
Red Shoes Media & Marketing is championing small businesses to be the best they can be, by being the best we can be.
FROM OUR CLIENTS
We know how important word of mouth and recommendations are when it comes to choosing who to trust with your business marketing, so here’s a few of the kind things our clients have said about us.
All I can say is thank you.
Since you have come on board my website and the ‘online’ part of my business has improved so much, you have certainly delivered on your word.
It was such a refreshing experience to work with Tracey on our new website.
She was polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
We are so pleased with our new website Tracey designed for us.
We have been very impressed by Tracey’s ability to create designs matching both the business needs and budget.
We would certainly recommend Tracey and look forward to working with her in the future.
Tracey recently produced a new logo for my business and I was thrilled!
I gave her a very vague brief and she came back with a dozen ideas less than 24 hours later!
I picked the ones I liked and she tweaked a few things and then provided me with the full artwork, brand guidelines everything.
Such an amazing service from a lovely lady. I would highly recommend.
