"Franky has taken on the editorial copy for our bi-annual magazine Connection and the all-important introductory pages of our undergraduate prospectus. Her marketing and business background give her an edge in thoroughly understanding the competitive environment in which we operate - and the relationships between the various stakeholders of our University. She relates easily to the people she interviews and the results are turned into compelling features that help to differentiate Bucks New University from its competitors. Most importantly, from our point of view, Franky has never missed a deadline!"

"We employed Cookson Marketing to redesign our website, including our logo, then to design a new ad and write editorial copy for an advertorial page (all to be delivered asap). The projects were executed very professionally and with minimal fuss. Franky and her team were a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to any other business that required these types of services."

"Franky Cookson has been instrumental in bring our product, Pipestrip, to market. Providing a thoroughly professional service for the branding, advertising and promotion, Pipestrip would not be on the market without her input. As well as overseeing web design and instructional videos, she has single-handedly got our product placed in some of the country's leading suppliers. Nor should I forget packaging design and supply.
A unique offering from start to finish from an honest, pragmatic, hard-working professional. I could not recommend her and her team more highly."
PSMM Ltd t/a PipeStrip
"Franky Cookson has been instrumental in transforming my business approach to marketing from an amateur to that of a professional. She and her team have produced a logo, trade and consumer leaflets, customer letters, banners, a short film and vastly improved my website. In addition, she has given sound advice about data capture and organisation, advertising and helped with PR. Largely through her efforts our retail sales have increased by 20% over 18 months, in a product that we can only market for a short time each year.
She is a good listener, easy to get on with, highly organised, efficient and gets the job done well within the time-frame. Most importantly, she clearly cares about and believes in my product as if it were her own. She has a lifetime's experience in all aspects of advertising and PR which come without the overhead costs of an agency.
I would highly recommend her services to any potential client."
"Franky managed a number of projects for me a few years back, and I can always remember being very impressed with Franky's attention to detail and project management, to ensure costs came within budget and were delivered by the agreed deadline. So, when I needed support with a project just recently, I contacted Franky and I am delighted to say everything went perfectly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Cookson Marketing & PR."

"Franky has been a godsend! We were missing numerous P.R. opportunities, mainly due to a lack of time. Franky came on board and not only addressed the open opportunities, she actively sought new possibilities, leading to an increase in our market presence and a noticeable rise in enquiries!"
Sales & Marketing, Alexander James Interiors
"Working with Franky has been a very positive experience. Franky was able to translate our descriptions into a coherent presentation of our brand. In particular we are pleased with the graphical artwork - and a very presentable brochure. Great results! Expert! Creative!"

"Franky has become our 'off-site' (and sometimes on-site) marketing department. For a set fee per month, she helps us plan our strategies and brand development, then helps with the implementation of our web design and updates, online marketing, advertising, PR, signage and events.
She delivers media plans at a fraction of rate card (the savings amply cover her fee) and has found us excellent designers who charge reasonable prices. She has also implemented ideas that give us ongoing free media coverage. Despite the recession, footfall is up!"
Managing Director, Stubbings Nursery
"Franky presented me with a 'shopping list' of options, to help promote my Beauty business, and made recommendations about priorities. She convinced me of the importance of a consistent brand.
Working within a limited budget, she delivered an updated identity, a lovely design for my advertising and literature - and she achieved really good rates for advertorial coverage in the local press. She has also given valuable advice about how to achieve free ongoing publicity.
I now have a much more professional presentation of my services – and this has generated enquiries and brought back lapsed customers."

"Something about Franky: I can describe her as a professional, dedicated and kind.
She really did leave a mark in our business and also in our lives. She listened and gave us her support, both professional and moral. She has got something special that separates her from other marketing advisers. We know she will always be there for us, to keep us updated for events or potential new clientele without any hesitation. We are delighted to have met her."

"We saw some superb interpretations of our brief, but none had the quite the single-minded focus or brand integrity of that presented by Franky."
