Elizabeth will delve into the significance of incorporating hashtags and engaging images for increased visibility and impact.

About our Expert in Residence - Elizabeth Blake

Elizabeth Blake is the Managing Director of Apple Orchard Marketing. She has worked in sales and marketing roles with increasing seniority over the last 30 years. She has worked for companies from multinationals to start ups.

At university, she trained as a podiatrist. While I enjoyed the healthcare environment, didn't feel she was making enough of a difference so, she moved into a sales role in pharmaceuticals. She realised she loved having involvement in healthcare but in a commercial capacity. Elizabeth then moved into orthopaedics and quickly into marketing. She has held roles including a marketing function ever since. These have been for large established companies launching new divisions and products and also start up companies as the first commercial hire so there was no brand, no marketing plan, and no sales presentation!

So, I know what it's like to be in a start up company with a great idea for a product or service, maybe you have even got some sales, but you don't have any idea where marketing fits. Apple Orchard Marketing is here to help
