See what my clients have to say about me:
I’m really happy with the website ideal directions designed for our nursery. It’s everything I asked for and more, was done quickly and at an affordable price. I’d highly recommend the services Marieanne offer’s to anyone looking for someone to get things done with minimal hassleJackie Phull
Ideal Directions helped me with the marketing of my new business. Marieanne was successful in creating my branding, leaflets, business cards and producing a simple website to ensure I have a presence online. On top of this, Marieanne also set up my Facebook and Instagram page and I am looking forward to taking part in social media training so that I can get to grips with promoting my cake services online consistently. I would happily recommend Ideal Directions services to anyone looking to set up and market their business as Marieanne is professional, listens to clients needs, helped me to achieve my aims and keeps you up to date with everything that’s going on. Most importantly of all, she helped me market my services and I now have customers contacting me for my services.
Ideal Directions was hired to run a number of social media workshops to help our youth council members get to grips with utilising their Facebook business page, whilst using it in a professional capacity. Marieanne’s interactive, friendly, professional approach and thorough knowledge supported the group to have exploratory sessions, which helped them create a development plan, as well as prompted them to actively begin using the page with a strategy in mind. They have begun using the page more to engage with the community and are more confident promoting themselves and the work that they do. Thanks Marieanne for your support and for tailoring the sessions for the young people’s needs. Visit Dudley Youth Council’s Facebook pageSiobhan Lloyd

“Ideal Directions worked with me to develop a number of marketing and branding activities when I first took over Veg Out Cafe & Restaurant in Kings Heath. Being a new business owner can be quite stressful and Marieanne helped to alleviate this stress by building our website and improving our connections, activities on social networking sites and customer reviews. I felt secure handing these elements of work over to Marieanne and I’m really pleased with the results. Marieanne’s support has not only helped us grow but it has given me an understanding of the best types of marketing activities that can be used for my business.Jules Allen
I am truly delighted to be able to highly recommend Marieanne for effectively helping me to set up a blog using WordPress.com. I commend Marieanne for her clarity on many counts i.e. in the content & grasp of the subject matter, her professional communication skills, but also her ease & professionalism in achieving the goal to have a fully functioning site.
With such an outcome the training gave me the confidence to personally maintain & keep up to date on my own terms, without having to rely on an intermediary – which in the past I have found this to be most frustrating as was finding myself having to wait on somebody else’s schedule & ideas which were often at odds with my personal vision.
