Jo Long Consulting

My Process





  • Jo has been helping on a new brand and online promotion plan in the beauty industry. I have a little marketing background but found it incredibly hard to focus on what I wanted for my own business. Jo listened and was there to help me find clarity and a better vision for what I was trying to achieve. She has an excellent ability to really listen to what you want which was invaluable to me. I wouldn’t be where I am 6 months later without Jo's expertise, insight and overall patience. She continues to support me and will always be my first go-to for Business Consulting. Thank you, Jo.

  • Jo thoroughly understood our entire business proposal. From the work Jo did, we were able to see certain flaws. Jo was an asset to our business, and a credit to herself providing an efficient & professional service and consistently kept us up to date with her progress. The business plan she aided us in creating was comprehensive and allowed us to access higher levels of funding otherwise out of reach. We would highly recommend Jo, and we would love to work with her in the future.

I wouldn't hesitate to work with Jo again or recommend her services to anyone else.

  • I have worked with Jo for the last year. She’s great to work with, full of energy & ideas with a real 'can-do' attitude. Nothing is too much trouble. The films she produced for our company were exactly what we wanted and our social media work gave us insights to include in our strategic decision making.

  • I would highly recommend Jo. She worked with me on the development of my Bloome brand, in particular looking at marketing, pricing strategies and promotional offers. Jo is strategically minded and looks at the whole picture not just the specific area of concern. She is so easy to get along with and very experienced in all areas of marketing.
