Don't Just Take Our Word For It….
Great strategic marketing session delivered by Margaret at Red Button Marketing, the session covered relevant topics to my industry and has left me with a lot to think about in terms of tailoring my marketing approach. It was great to meet and network with other North East organisations and to have interesting discussions about each other’s current marketing challenges and goals.

At the Aircon Group we identified that the majority of enquiries come into the business by phone, but at the time we were having some communication issues. Mags delivered training which highlighted to all front facing staff that first impressions count, there was opportunity for discussion, time allocated to ironing out ongoing issues, an awareness session to show employees how their role significantly impacted other people’s roles in the business and how excellent communication with customers and colleagues results in fantastic customer service. The session we offered is now part of our induction for new staff members in office-based roles.

The course was very interesting and helped me to understand more about how to plan a marketing strategy, and it has given me some great ideas on how to get started . The session was very well structured and the group participation was well received… I even met some new connections!

We started using Mags to do our marketing when she started Red Button Marketing & Training. Mag’s enthusiasm for just about everything is clear to see and this translates into her work. Marketing was very much on the backburner for us with no social media presence before Mags came to help. She singlehandedly transformed the public view of the firm with a total rebrand, new logos, colours and dragged us into the 21st Century with Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. To say that her creativity is unique is a total understatement. Whoever would have thought that they would see a post on a law firm’s Facebook page with a photo of a dog wearing sunglasses and licking an ice-cream? Well Mags did! I would thoroughly recommend Mags and Red Button Marketing & Training if you want something out of the ordinary and make you stand out from the crowd.

Mags was fantastic in presenting the marketing training. The session was amazing in that Mags asked all attendees and myself questions about our business, so we could create action plans to implement after the workshop session. I highly recommend having a training session with their team, a lovely bunch of people and a ground-breaking course; thank you!

We really enjoyed our Red Button Marketing & Training sessions with Margaret and would highly recommend her Red Button Technique. Her enthusiasm and positivity are such encouraging elements in her mentoring you’re left feeling empowered after every session; she is a joy to work with. Margaret’s Red Button technique has taught us a lot and made marketing seem less daunting. It is extremely helpful for creating an efficient marketing strategy and gaining a better oversight on task management so you’re not left feeling overwhelmed. Margaret took us back to basics and taught us how to go about creating a unified platform to work from. Her sessions have really helped focus our ideas and left us feeling capable of reaching our goals.

After a fantastic morning of mentoring from Margaret I couldn’t recommend Red Button Marketing & Training more highly. Margaret’s delivery of the ‘Red Button Methodology’ was absolutely brilliant, taking the time to understand exactly what our needs were and creating a workable marketing strategy around this. It is clear how passionate Margaret is about her work and her enthusiasm about our business has given us all a fresh perspective on our marketing approach.

The Red Button marketing course has really shone a light upon Indie Ink. From start to finish every detail was useful and applicable to our business. As someone who originally thought they knew a lot about marketing, this course really opened my eyes to the wonderful world of marketing outside social media and content. I would recommend this course to all companies and businesses of all sizes. Whether they are startups or not, as with marketing there is always much to learn. Especially when learning from the concept of the marketing button, a genius ideology.
Danielle Graham, Sales and Marketing Executive
The workshop was a great opportunity for the management team to get a deeper understanding of what marketing is, and how each team member can contribute to the overall strategy no matter what their role. This could be as little as contacting existing clients, upselling new features or providing knowledge share for further business development opportunities.
Danielle Croce, Commercial Director
iTCHYROBOT worked with Margaret at Red Button Marketing & Training as part of a workshop to give us an external perspective on our marketing strategy and we have integrated the My Button App to ensure that our marketing activity is kept focused and tracked to keep us targeted towards achieving our objectives. The app is simple to use and easy to manage which is a revelation with marketing software and the interface is not complex but engaging and intuitive. We hope to roll the app out to the team to encourage co-ordination and a bit of healthy competition.
I can highly recommend Margaret Bradshaw's My Marketing Button Bites. These sessions have helped me focus my mind on all the marketing activity going on within @LemonTop Creative bringing structure and meaning for the whole team to buy into. Margaret's methodology is a real insight into marketing and how to visualise and promote your business. #happyaslarry #MyMarketingButton #marketing

Helping businesses with all their design and print needs whilst using sustainable paper and being environmentally conscious throughout all processes and supporting the local community. Having attended one of Margaret Bradshaw’s My Marketing Button Bites, I can highly recommend to others and all at a very reasonable cost.
We met Margaret through a North East Chamber of Commerce networking event and were immediately impressed by her ideas and enthusiasm. We agreed to work together to market our Team Building Experience Days in Darlington. She brought new motivation to the team and helped us to develop a plan to re-engage with previous clients and provided inspiration for new marketing material to reach out to new perspectives. All in all a great experience and will certainly be working with Red Button again.

[The Strategic Marketing Course was] Brilliant! Mags is really great at delivering the content and involving everyone in the conversations. There was no pressure, the whole afternoon felt relaxed and natural. It was really engaging and I left feeling extra motivated and couldn’t wait to get started!
Caroline Noble, Marketing Manager
A key takeaway for me from the Marketing Planning workshop is that Marketing is not just down to one person in the business – the whole company is involved in some way however big or small. Marketing can be broken down and managed with simple tasks. I’m a very visual person so I think the My Marketing Button software will help me get tasks done more efficiently and keep me on target. With the help of my new knowledge and the software access I feel I can plan an efficient marketing strategy broken down into manageable tasks.
Rebecca Greener, Business Manager
The button methodology really hit the nail on the head of how marketing within a business goes beyond Social Media etc and actually encompasses much of your day to day activities. For me, the session with Mags was so beneficial because it allowed me to join the dots and gave me tools to be able to explain each individual's role within an overall marketing plan. As a result, we’re experiencing what is potentially the busiest time the business has seen and has helped us develop a strategy where we can be consistent in our messaging and output even when driving sales may not be such a priority. The support I’ve had from Mags since has also been incredible. Having someone to chat through things with and giving an external point of view has been so helpful.
Beth Martin, Contracts & Marketing Officer
We engaged the services of Margaret Bradshaw of Red Button Marketing and Training to deliver content on our Pitch Perfect programme. The programme is about preparing businesses for investment. Margaret delivered a session on the subject of developing an effective marketing plan. This was in order to both offer a connected process that would underpin business growth but also to showcase to investors that they were ready for the next stage and armed with a powerful and clear way to make best use of any investment received. In addition, the content gave delegates a way to showcase their businesses to potential investors as there was time spent on reaching a target market. The session was well received by the delegates. They said that they had gained new knowledge and insight into how to set out and create a sustainable marketing plan for growth.

We were really excited to get involved with the Button workshop and we were interested to see how it would fit with us, given we are a marketing agency. We found the whole session thought provoking and using the support materials also made us feel it was an opportunity to learn and get our strategy together. The session illustrated very well the breadth of the marketing process and reminded us of some key fundamentals. As a marketing agency, we find businesses who have a marketing culture embedded already get so much more from their agency. The session was also a great reminder for us on other opportunities that we can use to further develop our own business.
