It’s tough working out how to grow your business alone and easy to feel overwhelmed trying to define what marketing to do. With so many channels to choose from, what will work best for you?

Working with Hotspot Marketing, we help to pinpoint what matters most to the people who would buy from you – to help you get more of the right customers.

Whether you need to develop your online presence, create an engaging print campaign or build better customer communication, we develop and refine marketing campaigns that you can manage yourself – or we can manage for you.

The Hotspot Marketing team is led by entrepreneurial marketers Nick & Jacqui Taimitarha. Our grounded approach brings to the table a wealth of marketing experience and the hands-on knowledge of what it takes to grow a business. We’ve both built successful independent businesses from scratch outside of our marketing careers – so understand what the real risks and challenges can be.

The questions we will ask you and the approach we take, ensures you have the right foundations in place to run a savvy marketing campaign that can be tested, tweaked and refined to help attract more of the right customers.

What our clients say...

an inspiration to my business…

Jacqui at Hotspot Marketing has been an inspiration to my business. I needed to create an online presence and didn't know where to start. She got to grips with my target customers quickly through her research and has helped my business to build closer customer relationships through our fashion blog, email and social media. Her ideas and input have been exciting and relevant to my retail fashion boutique.

professionalism stands out a mile…

Jacqui’s professionalism and skill stands out a mile. The customer research she did helped mould our new branding and the more recent copywriting has been well worth the reasonable fee. Her ability to get an essence of our company ethos in easy to understand prose has been extremely impressive. I would recommend her unreservedly.

really knows her stuff…

Jacqui has brought our business into the 21st Century! She has set up all of our social marketing and helped us create an ecommerce website - we didn't have a clue where to begin so could not have done it without Jacqui's expert knowledge. Jacqui really knows her stuff and always shows attention to detail. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to another business - large or small.

takes away all the stress of marketing…

Jacqui is simply the best. She completely takes away all the stress of our marketing initiatives and has the patience of a saint in dealing with our company's quirks. She developed a great understanding of our company right from the start and we have now been working with her for about 4 years. She continues to have lots of great ideas and I can't imagine where we would be without her.

invaluable to us…

Jacqui has been invaluable to us. We wanted to look at re-branding ourselves to better suit the services we offer. Jacqui suggested doing some consultative research and handled it all for us. The results were incredibly useful and made it a lot easier to see the direction we needed to take. Our clients enjoyed talking to Jacqui, and we got some great quotes for our site. Jacqui worked with us to get the copy right for our site and promotional leaflets. She helped to clearly present our services and get our character across at the same time. I think most businesses have a few key people they can turn to for support and Jacqui is one of ours!

trebling our number of enquiries…

Hotspot Marketing provide a fantastic personal marketing service. I wanted to create a brand identity for my business and start a marketing campaign to get new members. They developed a monthly plan for us and took control of all aspects of the marketing. I was very much of the belief that logos leaflets, campaigns and a website cannot change a business that much. But the proof is in the results that we had. My tennis company, Best Tennis transformed from being Phil the tennis coach to actually being known as Best Tennis and more than trebling our number of enquiries to date.

I have known Jacqui for the last 2 years, and her marketing strategies have helped my business grow. She has assisted with my company’s website; I provided the material and she worked with her team to give me a very professional looking website which has received many compliments. She has also helped me with adverts and brochures. She researched my target clients and produced impressive material tailored to my marketing campaign. I would not hesitate to recommend Hotspot Marketing to friends or colleagues looking for high quality, value for money marketing material.

an amazing experience…

Working with Jacqui and Toni is an amazing experience. With equal amounts of challenge & support, they coach you to write 'real, engaging, fresh and relevant' marketing materials that pack a punch! They help with style and tone of language. And they come up with eye-catching and 'on brand' visuals. Their materials 'captured' me as a person but helped package it in a new, fresh way. Their main USP is helping people like me 'loose the consultant speak' and simply address the poignant questions my audience have.

more than a marketing company…

We were very lucky to be introduced to Jacqui and the team at Hotspot Marketing, exactly when we needed them. Having run her own small business, Jacqui completely understood the challenges we were facing starting our business, and helped us prioritise what we needed to do in terms of a marketing presence. The team is so friendly and helpful, easy to work with, and priced very reasonably for small business. With a broad client base, we have been amazed at how timely and relevant Hotspot Marketing’s ideas for our specific industry have been, helping us with business development, partnerships and promotions. So much more than a marketing company, we recommend Hotspot to all small business owners!

a single point of contact…

Having a single point of contact for website design, including recommendations for a local photographer, copywriting, then later print design and training in social media and blogging has been invaluable. The team is so friendly and helpful, easy to work with, and priced very reasonably for small business.
