"‘Bread & Butter Marketing embraced the challenge of creating an interactive and effective website with full accessibility, great visual design and an easy to use format for Imaginosity, Dublin Children’s Museum, a child-centred creative, educational and interactive space for children under 9-years of age and their families. They didn’t just listen to our words in describing what we wanted to achieve, they listened to the meaning behind our words, the end result being an extremely happy client with a superb new website, functional and pleasing in design, layout and navigation, all contributing to create a great user experience. The feedback from our customers has been marvellous! Bread & Butter Marketing were efficient and amenable with a wonderful sense of creativity, which they utilised commendably while rising above all of the crazy challenges they encountered. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.’
Jennifer Bohan, General Manager, Imaginosity - Dublin Children's Museum.
"As an approved centre of the Institute of Leadership and Management, and a preferred training partner of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce and the PPA, it is really important that we only work with the very best trainers. Lucy has worked with us to deliver digital marketing training to an exceptional level and this is evidenced in the feedback that she receives. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lucy to anyone looking for expertise in this field.
Ian Laverty, Managing Director, Ingenuity (Scotland) Ltd
"Our business has an excellent product but is in a very specialised field. The marketing advice which Lucy from Bread & Butter Marketing provided was both effective and great value. She made sure to understand the unique nature of our business and this, combined with her excellent knowledge and experience of online marketing meant we have seen great success through increased bookings on our website since working with her. We'd recommend her to anyone. She makes it seem really simple, but what she does works!
Andrew Bradford

"5/5, Hooray! Someone who finally makes sense and can help us with actual marketing online, rather than just telling us to decrease our CPC on Adwords! Lucy managed to bring all sorts of online channels together to help us see everything as a part of one great big online marketing campaign, which makes a massive difference to a brand-led company like ours."

Henri Copeland, Marketing Director, Frugi

"Scotland's Garden Scheme is a charity that raises funds for other worthy charities by facilitating the opening of large and small gardens of horticultural interest throughout Scotland to the public. Lucy from Bread and Butter Marketing helped us to get a Google Grant to run a free Google AdWords account promoting our charity which has really increased the number of visitors we're getting to our website. She was able to explain how it works to us and made sure to build the AdWords account very thoroughly. We'd highly recommend her!"
"5/5 , Excellent! Very knowledgeable, focussed training, relevant and informative."

Paul Gillick

"5/5, Personalized service. Use of examples relevant to the business."

Ariane Moriarty, Marketing Advisor

"5/5 Lucy's knowledge in the field of internet marketing seems endless! Bed&Fed is not the easiest website to market as there are 3 different types of customer: Hosts, Guests and Heroes. Lucy explains things really well and is never patronising to those of us who are not as computer literate - she is creative with her ideas and is excellent at providing examples and case-studies of what she is talking about. I would not hesitate to recommend Lucy or Bread & Butter Marketing to anyone."

Why Bread & Butter?

As the name suggests, we're trying to do something a little different to most online marketing companies. Many others out there have a vested interest in ensuring online marketing appears as complicated as possible. Bread & Butter Marketing's business model is to help our customers to help themselves to earn their bread and butter through online marketing. We're not threatened by the idea of our customers becoming more knowledgeable as we know online marketing is expanding and changing so rapidly, there's always going to be something that we can help a customer with, even if they're already complete experts. We're a small firm, with just 1 full time and 1 part time employee so far, but we think we pack a bigger punch than some much bigger outfits. We pride ourselves in providing best in class consultancy to every customer, and in keeping absolutely at the forefront of online marketing through training and making use of all the online marketing tools ourselves.



We're also trying to be as ethical as we can in our business. We are proud to be a member of an organisation called 1% for the Planet through which we donate 1% of our sales to environmental charities. Follow our blog to learn more about who we donate to as we get going.
