My Story

Virtual Marketing and Business Coaching and Mentoring Leeds Yorkshire UK
Rachel Bentley
The Small Business Marketing Coach

Solopreneur, manager, director, parent, carer & serial volunteer, I am a professional, award winning, qualified marketer with over 30 years business experience.

I offer a business skills boost for small business owners via 1-2-1, virtual coaching and mentoring sessions, to build strategies and action for the whole business or simply help clients to create the best marketing options for profit.

Why work with me?

I have worked across many industries and business types – corporates, network marketing groups (MLNM), franchise, small businesses plus as a sole trader and as a company director.

A world-class sales, marketing and management training with the AVIVA group, gave me a high-flying sales and marketing career (in Yorkshire and in the City) and the opportunity to coach and mentor 100s of colleagues and clients – starting at just 19 when I was training senior staff in new customer services methods. Not only did I work in group and 1-2-1 settings, I developed award winning guides and support material for UK commercial insurance brokers to coach and train them in handling complex insurance needs across a wide range of sectors.

I was successful using strategic planning – and taught others how to best use it.

Now, I am ready to help you too.

As a trained business and marketing strategist I developed a ‘goal setting and getting’ program for myself and my teams – and this is what forms the basis of my business boosting coaching programs now available to you.

As a senior sales executive this strategic approach helped me grow my business panel turnover from £3.5m to £6m in under two years – an increase untouched by my colleagues at that time.

What about small businesses?

Within my MLNM business, and then in my publishing franchise, I coached 100s of solopreneurs and small business owners in sales, marketing and business growth. I grew a high performing MLMN team through group and 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring, resulting in top 30 status out of 10,000 traders. As an editor and publisher I turned around the magazine business which I had taken over, using my own strategic planning methods. My USP was to offer marketing mentoring to help my clients plan how their advertising would achieve the very best results – and I was rewarded with an 80% rebooking rate.

Like you I have spent many years working and developing my businesses around my family life (including volunteering for a myriad of organisations) which has definitely had its ups and downs.
So I truly understand how you, as solopreneur parent and carer, face specific issues in running your business around your home life.

The work life balance forms the basis of strategies I develop with clients – and is not an afterthought.

It is so easy to take advantage of my many years of experience to boost your business growth: a customised program, 1-2-1 and virtual – at a great price.
