About

This Little Piggy’s Story

Hey, how are you? I’m Karen and I founded my marketing company This Little Piggy in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire after 16 years as a business adviser, where I gained really valuable experience, and advised others on starting, promoting and growing their businesses. Nothing prepares you for doing it yourself though so I’m glad to combine academic knowledge with real practical business experience in delivering marketing to my clients – theory is great, it helps you in the real world but nothing beats walking the talk.

Over the years I’ve gained a Certificate in Enterprise Skills, a Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies, and a  Premier Adviser Diploma in Business Advice and Counselling, and more recently the Certified Digital Marketing Professional with the Digital Marketing Institute with an 88% pass rate. Continued learning is important to me and it allows me to always add a fresh approach to my services for my clients, business never stays still.

My “thing” is marketing to help businesses succeed and grow, I love connecting businesses with new customers, it’s why I get out of my bed in the morning.

I love animals, music, our planet and paying it forward at every opportunity, This Little Piggy runs the free Grampian Business Finder Facebook Group to help our local economy. Get in touch if you’d like a chat.

This Little Piggy’s on a Mission

Our mission is to help you put a twist in your marketing tale so that you stand out in the crowded crowd. Check out our services to see how we can help you raise awareness, stay prominent, attract more customers and grow your business.

Marketing is essential, you might have the best business in the world but if no one knows about it you won’t have any customers. Marketing is consistent, ongoing, non-stop, relentless even – eat, sleep, ENGAGE, repeat – it’s just as well it’s fun!

Your marketing needs to have a tangible return on investment (ROI) and we help you set targets for that, thankfully in digital times marketing activities can be monitored for hits, views, impressions, engagements etc and we want to optimise our marketing on an ongoing basis to always be ahead of the pack.

You might have to step out of your comfort zone to get where you want to be – we can help you with that, we do it on a regular basis ourselves – nothing great happens within the comfort zone and “if you do the thing you fear the most the death of fear is certain.”

Assuring you of integrity, open communication, transparency, reliability, and a positive attitude at all times.
