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:

  1. Do It Yourself (DIY) – you take our suggestions for new marketing strategies and systems and implement them yourself.
  2. Done With You (DWY) – We support you to implement your new marketing strategies. This can include training you and your staff in new skills where necessary.
  3. 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 me,  Tracey Sweetland, a professional journalist with more than 25 years’ experience in local newspapers.

In 2014 I 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 I honed my skills in graphic design, branding, website design, social media and content creation.

Since setting up my own business in 2018, I have used those skills to advise businesses on their marketing strategy, as well as improvements to some of the systems, software, procedures and platforms which they use.

Red Shoes Media & Marketing is championing small businesses to be the best they can be, by being the best we can be.


I 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 my clients have said about Red Shoes.

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.

Ivan Pastore

Owner and head chef, Amici Restaurant

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.

Lorna and Nigel Mynott

Owners, Moulton Pet Stores

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.

Chloe King

Head of Marketing, Ashwood Homes

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.
