At Campers2go we are delighted to recommend SDMarketing. We badly needed to upgrade our website and to increase our profile on social media but had no idea how to go about doing this. Steve really knows his stuff and, following discussion he has built us a fantastic bespoke website. We really couldn't be happier with how Steve has managed our account. He has generated a huge increase in our social media profile resulting in many more bookings. We have retained Steve to manage our social media profile. Great guy, great company and great value for money. Many thanks SDMarketing. More...

Q&As

For us a great website need to be engaging from the first click, it needs to speak to your customers quickly and effectively and demonstrate that you are a leader in your given field.

What are your needs?

How did you reach where you are as a business, whats your backstory?

Where do you want your business to be in 2 years time, how, do you plan to get there?

Helping small businesses, I have worked as a salaried member of staff for a few fortune 500 companies and I got tired of helping shareholders fill their pockets without really caring about the business.

I started SDM to help people buy houses, take their children on holidays and make lasting memories with their own business.

Skateboarding in the nineties - Allow me to elaborate.

As a spritely 16 year old, I was a semi successful skateboarder. I had a few sponsors and was paving my way in competitions and doing okay. The routine was school during the day, and the evenings and weekends were consumed with skateboarding. Rain, shine, snow or hurricane I found a way to skate, be it in a underpass or garage I practiced and practiced because I was in love with everything about it.

You may be asking yourself what this has to do with small business? Well, at that time you didn't see skateboarding on the TV, you didn't have gameshows dedicated to it and it certainly wasn't being considered for the Olympics. If you wanted to skate you did it on the street, there wasn't skateparks everywhere and you had to make do with what you had. The same story was being narrated by the companies that were producing skateboarding products.


99% of companies involved with skateboarding were owned by SKATEBOARDERS. They were so passionate about the scene that they got involved in making their passion their business and the result at the time was incredible. The quality of the products and the attention to detail was impeccable as skateboards were being made to unbelievable standards in peoples workshops by teams of 10, and the industry grew from strength to strength because of it. Skateparks started to open but they were also owned by skateboarders and they had a charm that you will not find these days. They were rugged, they were raw and the owners were involved and cared about the scene. They nurtured it and helped it grow.

You could hangout all day at a local skate shop or park and chat to the OWNER. They would help you with their knowledge, they would point you in the direction of spots if you were visiting or new to the area and if you needed help with products they knew everything inside out, because they were as passionate about it as you were.


Fast forward to the early 2000's and big businesses started to notice the passion within the scene and they jumped on the bandwagon. Nike and Adidas got involved, supermarkets started selling skateboard products, meeting rooms rallied together with shareholders discussing the profit margins to be made on opening a chain of skate shops and huge factories in China started churning out skateboards in the millions.


The passion and soul of skateboarding is still there but its not for the love as much as the potential paycheque from Nike, or a board sponsorship form some "World Industries" subsidiary.


My point here is that things were better before shareholders had a say, and choices were made by a board of people that have never held a skateboard. And that rule works the same for any business or industry.


Small businesses are vital in modern society. If you would rather drink coffee in a Starbucks than a small batch coffee shop owned by a local you're crazy. Not only will the coffee be infinitely better but the owner will almost certainly be there; they will able to speak to you about the beans, and the farmer in country that they came from who they almost certainly went to meet before they bought the coffee. Not only will their passion come through in their shop but you will help support the local business in the coffee plantation, who will be paid a fair price for the coffee you're drinking, as opposed to being completely exploited by the corporation coffee shops that are lining a shareholders pockets making millions from well documented exploitation of coffee farmers.


The same can be said for pubs & restaurants; would you rather sit next a warmly lit fireplace with a great beer in your hand in a locally owned pub? Or would you prefer the sticky floors, bright lights and cheap warm beer at Wetherspoons?


This is why small businesses are so important to us at SDM. We have the same passion about your business as I had as that 16 year old in that undercroft in the rain, we understand the effort you put into your business and we are absolutely committed to make sure your digital presence is as passionately created and as beautiful as the worlds small enterprises.

We genuinely care about your business, we exist to help your business grow and we are proud to be part of that journey.
