PP8 Marketing was founded by Paula Parker in 2016.

As an accomplished Head of Marketing, Paula desires to bring together the wealth of marketing and commercial experience she had and help small and medium sized ambitious businesses. With a career spanning 30 years, working in both B2B and B2C roles in product and service businesses, Paula’s experience is broad and deep, covering the full marketing mix.

Carrie Burgess joined PP8 in 2021. Carrie brings her retail, sales and marketing experience to PP8, further enhancing the practical skills and knowledge available to support clients in implementing their strategic marketing campaigns.

Both Paula and Carrie have firsthand experience of the challenges associated with delivering essential marketing projects in under resourced marketing teams. Together with their excellent network of creative specialists, they offer a full outsourced marketing service with both high level marketing strategy and marketing implementation under one roof.

PP8 Marketing – Your Best Marketing Ally…

At the heart of our business is the belief in the power of collaboration and a commitment to personalised support.

We saw a need for businesses to have more than just an external marketing service but rather a true partner in their growth journey.

We understand that each company is unique, with its own goals, challenges, and aspirations. That’s why we take the time to truly listen, getting to know your business inside and out.

From there, we collaborate closely to develop a customised plan that aligns seamlessly with your goals.

And it doesn’t just end there… we’ll stick around to make sure you stay on track, within budget and delivering results.

With us, you’re not just another client – you’re a valued partner, and your success is our top priority.
