St Neots based Keystone Marketing nationally profiled on Friday 2nd December
as part of Small Business Saturday UK’s ‘Small Biz 100’ for 2016

EMBARGOED until Friday 2nd December 2016 at 8am

Keystone Marketing was named among the 100 small businesses in the UK earlier this year by Small Business Saturday, the national campaign that culminates in the UK’s dedicated day for small businesses on 3rd December.

Each of the chosen 100 businesses in the campaign have been assigned a dedicated day in the lead up to Small Business Saturday, and Friday 2nd December is the day Keystone is being profiled, the day before the big national campaign day itself. As part of the profile, the Small Business Saturday campaign team will promote Keystone Marketing and its work on a national platform. Keystone Marketing’s Managing Director Hayley Williams also attended a dedicated Small Business Saturday reception at 10 Downing Street on Thursday 1st December.

Speaking about the accolade, Keystone Marketing’s Managing Director Hayley Williams said: “We are truly delighted to have been nationally recognised as a top 100 small business this year. The small business community is vitally important and hugely powerful and it's a pleasure to be part of it. We are a small, hardworking team who are driven to deliver an excellent marketing service to other small and growing businesses both locally and nationally. Our business has grown significantly since inception just over three years ago and this recognition really does demonstrate the impact we have made so far.”

Hayley Williams set up Keystone Marketing three years ago as an outsourced marketing department for organisations that are short of marketing time, resources or expertise. Since then, Hayley has since been joined by two other senior marketing professionals, as well as the recent addition of the first Keystone Marketing intern, to support the growing Keystone customer base. Keystone’s small but perfectly formed team applies more than 35 years of experience in advising on strategy and branding, creating high impact material, developing websites, organising events and running social media and PR campaigns.

Keystone Marketing is proud to be a small business, working with our clients, suppliers and partners who are mostly local and small businesses themselves.

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, not-for-profit campaign originally founded by American Express in the US in 2010 – and the company remains the principal supporter of the campaign in the UK, as part of its ongoing commitment to encourage consumers to shop small. Small Business Saturday is already the UK's most successful small business campaign. This is the fourth year of the campaign, which last year saw £623m spent with small businesses across the UK on Small Business Saturday, an increase of £119m or 24 per cent on the previous year. The campaign also benefits from the backing of leading business organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses and Enterprise Nation.
