Sam started working in internet marketing back in 2000 when her interest in the internet got the better of her. She first went online in 1996 and her thoughts about being a web designer led her into internet marketing – a big change from handling Government contracts for the defence sector!
She started her own consultancy, Forty First, in 2002 after working in house for a leading job board and then for an internet marketing agency in Brighton where she honed her SEO skills with projects for News International, Thistle Hotels, Airmiles & The Ramblers Association. Sam also speaks fluent French.
Her belief has always been that the principles of online marketing have never changed: creating a high-quality website and using best practice marketing techniques for long term, sustainable results.
Being a small business herself, Sam understands that many businesses need to stretch often small budgets that much further. She strives to give value for money to her clients and make use of the many free or low cost tools that are out there. Marketing doesn't have to cost a fortune!
