My company name, “Sugar Marketing”, comes in part from Sir Alan Sugar. OK we know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea and there are certain thing he does that we’re not too keen on. BUT when it comes to no nonsense marketing he is the king.

At Sugar Marketing we decided to niche into “Pay Per Click” because like Sir Alan, we also believe in a no nonsense approach to marketing and “Pay Per Click” is a very transparent form. It allows you to (100%) see what you get for your money. We also believe in simple explanations to help you understand exactly what is happening with your campaign.

Our Experience

We have worked with a number of brands both big and small, in both consumer and business to business. We generate direct sales, sales leads, or brand awareness across a variety of different sectors.

Exactly what we do and who we do if for is confidential to each client, but we can share a couple of results -

Single biggest order as a result of PPC was £1.2million.We have increased daily traffic from 0 to 1500 visitors in less than a week.We have attracted new customers at a media cost of 3 pence.One client has had over 50 million brand exposures.In 2007 we got one client over 110,000 target UK visitors to their site.

We got one client just over 18,000 downloads of their software.

Director of Eco Events and Bars by Design

As a former international model with Select Model Management, I am experienced in presentations, television interviews and public speaking.

A successful entrepreneur, I started my own business, Bars by Design, six years ago and within the first year secured contracts with Microsoft, Sky, Radio One, ITV, Cartier Polo, and Estee Lauder amongst many others.

Bars by Design has an outstanding reputation within the events industry and now includes and Cocktail-in-a-Box as part of its growing products and services.

Two years ago, Bars by Design was instructed to make Sky’s 2000 capacity party carbon neutral. This inspired the gaining of expertise in sustainability processes and the development of a progressive environmental policy, making Bars by Design the first bar company in the UK to provide services of this calibre. However, it soon became apparent that other events industry service providers and management companies were not geared up to meet sustainability requirements, and were confused as to their varying roles and responsibilities.

As a result of this, I brought together events management experts, environmental scientists, auditing pioneers and design experts to create EcoEvents; specialists in sustainable events management and design. 

I am a frequent speaker at events on ways to green the industry and have a particular interest in communications and awareness training, and am an ambassador for the entrepreneur’s support group Striding Out.

If you are having a large event or an intimate party, come and talk to me and I will be able to share some great ideas on how to make it all go smoothly and with some style!

Scott Collier – photographer

marketing - meet our professionals, meet our professionals No Comments »

My name is Scott Collier, a London based accredited professional photographer.

I have owned my own processing lab for some fifteen years and during this period experienced a broad range of assignments, encompassing most types of media and briefing.

My background features extensive photographic and people management training, allowing me to secure spontaneous quality images whilst comfortably handling congregations of people.

Take a look around my site ( and take in the diverse nature of assignments covered, or consider the simple philosophy I try to employ whilst taking photographs. Prices and contact information can be determined on the relevant pages. My wedding photography details are available on a dedicated site via this link.


How would you like your images?

During my 15 years as a commercial photographer I have concluded that the best way to satisfy your needs is to deal with an assignment in the way you want it.

Whilst taking the photos is a responsibility I enjoy, I also produce all negatives and prints in my own laboratory. This ensures care and quality at every stage of the imaging process. I believe this to be a feather in my cap and an unusual, perhaps exclusive qualification.

One of the benchmarks of my success is contributing to the success of your assignment.
