Jo Long Consulting

My Process





  • Thank you, Jo, for your excellent work in promoting & supporting etika during its first year of trading. Jo's work was instrumental in etika securing the business of its first 3 primary schools and the support & endorsement of the Bishop of Durham, which has given etika a platform on which to build for the future.

  • 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.

  • Jo was a wonderful sounding board, confirming my ideas and plans & making suggestions for improvement. She became someone I was accountable to. With Jo's help I was able to implement ideas in a much shorter timescale. I would highly recommend Jo and will be using her again when I have the next changes to implement into my business.

  • I engaged Jo Long to enhance our online presence when launching our new product & service. Jo is an ultimate professional, knows exactly how to establish your needs, the threads that make up your service offering and how to link it all. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Jo again or recommend her services to anyone else.

  • We worked with Jo in the development of our marketing plan. She quickly helped us clarify our vision and message. Professional at all times, Jo had a clear mind & was able to instil structure & discipline into our approach. A very effective listener. If you are looking for marketing and PR help then Jo is well worth your consideration.

  • 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.

  • 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.
    Rhys Keeling
  • 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.

Be More Bird…

I’ve been watching the birds in my garden recently, as it’s the view I have from my office space at home (lucky me!). And I’ve been fascinated by the approach they have in collecting their food for the day. Despite having a lovely bird feeder that I recently put up, their process seems to go […]
