Personal:I founded Sussex Local Magazine in 2007 with a small amount of savings, and it has now grown to four editions serving 23,500 home in West Sussex. During that time my husband and I grew our family from just the two of us to a satisfyingly symmetrical four, so it has been a busy few years. Just now getting back properly into the swing of things and looking to grow the business even further.
Professional:After a spell working overseas as a travel rep, I continued my career in the travel industry in the UK working in reservations for a couple of niche tour operators who had chiefly European programmes. I became Marketing Manager for the second company and oversaw a £500k budget which included national press and radio advertising, brochure production and website creation (back in the days of HTML!) I also remember we were a very early adopter of Google Adwords - I think the budget was about 3p per click! I started Sussex Local in 2007 with one edition, which has since grown to a very successful four. There are plans to expand further over the coming years, including a licensee/franchise model for other areas.
