As an award-winning freelance marketing consultant I am dedicated to helping small and medium-sized businesses in Kent to get their marketing working for them and taking it to the next level.

I have over ten years’ London agency experience working across many global brands including Virgin, Oxfam, O2, Dove and Avis, with skills spanning Integrated, Direct & Digital Marketing, Advertising, Consumer Loyalty and Social Media sectors.  I have a degree in PR & Marketing along with other industry qualifications.

Since 2014 I has supported a variety of small and medium business types across a variety of industry sectors. These included the re-brand and marketing strategy for a large independent Travel Agency. I acted as the outsourced Marketing Manager for a top London Law firm, and directed the marketing campaign for the launch of a new Kent leisure facility.

Tabitha Beasley – Freelance Marketing Consultant


Robert Woods, Founder & CEO The Climbing Experience

“I was referred to the Marketing Assistant by a business associate. In the early days of my project, I used Tabitha to help me develop a robust and well-thought through Marketing Strategy, using her proven template.

I was really pleased with the result and found Tabitha easy to work with, thorough and organised as well as displaying a good knowledge of the current marketing landscape.”


Garry Sprigmore, Managing Director GLC Services Ltd.

The Marketing Assistant was the perfect Marketing solution for my busy business, Tabitha is always available to do as much or as little as we require, she has advised us on our overall marketing strategy to enable our business growth as well as managed a brand refresh, managed new marketing material and run an advertising and PR campaign – I would highly recommend The Marketing Assistant.”


Karen Clarke, Owner The Smile Parcel

“I started working with Tabitha at The Marketing Assistant last year, and we had a very insightful meeting regarding all aspects of our business, including where we’re currently at, and where we want to be, and the next steps to help us achieve this.

I loved that Tabitha offers a refreshing ‘old school’ approach to marketing, and covers all possible options, which could be suited to the particular business type, rather than working to a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. If you’re feeling a little ‘stuck’ with your marketing – I definitely recommend giving The Marketing Assistant a shout!”


Lynne Helm, Operations Director Mendabath UK

The Marketing Assistant helped us with our marketing strategy and branding. We found Tabitha to be a highly impressive and professional. We would use Tabitha again on future work. Many thanks Tabitha.”


Nick Hine, Principle Hine Legal

“Tabitha is simply brilliant at marketing, especially strategy. We got more out of an hour with her than we did after 12 months with our previous London agency!”


Fiona Stephens, Director HR Services & Support Ltd

‘’I was recommended to use Tabitha by my bank manager to help launch my business.   She has been brilliant!!   She drew up a strategy that was really comprehensive, we talked through what my brand was about and decided on the most appropriate approach to launch.

The designer Tabitha works with is second to none and I am really happy with the design process and what I ended up with – Tabitha and her team really got me!  She has been a huge support and adviser and has made me a Twitter convert and my following has organically grown so that when I’m out networking people are aware of me and my brand already.

I cannot recommend Tabitha highly enough – she really knows her stuff and has access to a great team of experts. Knowledgeable, professional, approachable and good fun – what more could you ask from your Marketing Assistant!!’’


Sue Nelson, CEO Breakthrough Funding

“Tabitha is a very rare type of marketing professional. She can help companies at the beginning of their marketing journey; those who need detailed guidance and assistance, helping them get the new business results they need but aren’t quite sure how to do it themselves. Or, as in our case, she can roll her sleeves up and help established organisations who have marketing skills gaps.

Tabitha was entirely flexible and helped us with social media content, e-newsletters, a new product launch strategy and print buying. She’s a real professional and I can almost guarantee she will get the results you desire!”


David Hughes, Chairman of the Aldington, Bonnington & Hurst War Memorial Committee

“I was recommended The Marketing Assistant for PR & Marketing help which proved to be one of the best decisions made. Having been told that Tabitha was good, she is in fact excellent, very professional, approachable and clearly passionate about her work.

Any business requiring help of that provided by The Marketing Assistant really should make Tabitha their first port of call.”


Rebecca Carter, Principle BE.Dance

“The Marketing Assistant has gone above and beyond our initial request to help re-design a new website. Not only producing a fabulous ‘on-brand’ website, but helping to identify other areas that we need to focus on in order to take our dance school to the next level.

With a limited brief, Tabitha understood our brand and quickly identified what needed to be done in order to build on the business – something that I had limited knowledge of and not enough hours in the day to do!

Tabitha has made us aware of the importance of using social media to help promote our existing and new classes, and has identified publications and online directories in which we need to advertise. She has really given us a push in the right direction and injected new life into the business.”
