Kath Harlow, founder of Just Add Sauce, recognised that there was a real need for small and medium sized businesses to use cost-effective marketing to help grow their businesses.
‘With over 14 years of marketing experience, I am in an ideal position to develop marketing for smaller businesses. Through ‘Just Add Sauce’ I can offer a unique service and use my extensive experience. Having worked both agency and client-side, with promotional agencies for Ocean Spray, Hermesetas, Libby’s Organic and Palmolive and client-side at The Economist and in local government and tourism marketing and communications teams, I can give a balanced perspective.
My early career in journalism means I am comfortable with copywriting, public relations and looking at the bigger picture of what makes a company interesting from a customer perspective. I love finding out more about my clients' businesses, uncovering their passion for what they do and helping them stand out from the crowd.
My freelance clients have included a large retailer, IT companies, interiors, financial services, health, prestige cars and charities.’
