‘Hello. I’m Claire Saxton and I’m the Director of Saxton Marketing.
Did you know that I’m an award-winning Twitter expert and social media mastermind? Yup, yours truly is a three times award winning marketing consultant with the Queen of True Potential award, a WOW winner as a woman in business and a winner of the #SmartSocial Marketme award too!
I’ve worked with a variety of companies over the years, large and small, and I’ve helped them all break through their marketing barriers and take their business further than they thought possible.
My journey began at the University of Derby where I studied for my degree and CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing.
Since then I’ve gained 12 years’ experience working on marketing campaigns for local Building Societies and decided to take my campaign manager skills to independent businesses throughout the UK by forming Saxton Marketing Ltd.
This is my 5th year as owner of Saxton Marketing Ltd and I can’t believe how far I’ve come with the business and just how much I’ve been able to help business owners like you. It makes relaxing at home with a glass of gin in the evening all the better when I know I’ve done a good day’s working helping businesses attract more customers and leads.’
