Is Consultancy for You?
We consult for a number of small business owners in the UK, no more than ten at a time. This is a bespoke consulting service, which includes regular face-to-face meetings.
Most of our consulting clients have an in-house marketing person or persons but want the added benefits of Codebreak’s strategic advice and guidance. Someone to steer the ship and position them in their marketplace.
Joel, Andy, Becca, Jenny and the team have been absolutely brilliant for our business. We have gone through a rebrand and new website (amongst other things) with them and the process has been seamless. Their ability to turn our crazy, haphazard and uncoordinated thoughts on marketing and branding into a cohesive, well thought out and strategic plan of action is fantastic.
We have seen a huge improvement in our social media traction and feel like they truly understand what our vision is and get this across perfectly on all platforms for us. Fantastic team, keep up the great work.
Our consultancy service is category exclusive. It is the only service we provide where you get 24/7 access to Andy and Joel. Their personal mobile numbers that no one else has, bar their mums and a few friends who can’t use Messenger….
This is for business owners who want experienced, personalised marketing direction and support. We take a holistic view and provide ongoing strategy and critique to make your marketing more effective.
From advising on content creation to Facebook Ads, we have the experience, team and specialist contacts to help.
Our consultancy service also includes troubleshooting should something go wrong in your marketing. Perhaps your main marketing employee needs time off for an emergency. Or your business comes under fire on social media. When that happens out of the blue, it can be a shock as well as potentially damaging, but we know what to do.
In essence, Codebreak will be at the coal face with you. We see ourselves as part of your team; you just don’t get the headaches of HR, payroll and holidays! We’ll have your back 24/7.
Other benefits include social events and discounts off our preferred suppliers (printed materials, promo gifts, videography… you name it).
There is a three-month minimum commitment to double check we are right for each other. After that, it’s a simple rolling monthly deal. If either party wants to stop working with each other, for whatever reason, why make you see out a 12-month contract? That would be fun, wouldn’t it?!
In the first instance, you need to apply if you are interested. Click here for the application form. We will get back to you either way. If your category has already been allocated, we can put you on a waiting list.
Directors Andy and Joel will work with you on a marketing strategy then advise you on an ongoing basis. Codebreak’s unbiased, experienced, fresh pair of eyes will ensure that the content you’re putting out will make you stand out. What to do, what not to do, critiquing your copy and design… with responsive support just a phone call or email away.
For over ten years, Codebreak’s directors have been helping businesses market themselves better. Making them look more professional. Making their message clearer. Keeping them front-of-mind with the right target audience.
So when your marketing is seen or your salespeople get prospects on the phone, you are halfway there. Brand awareness. It’s not jargon or fluff. It is SOOOOO much easier to make a sale when people have seen you or heard good things about you.
Without ongoing marketing, you’ll always be starting the engine from cold. That’s why so many businesses went pear-shaped when the last recession hit. They didn’t market themselves during the good times.

Who we help
Most of our consultancy clients have a small marketing team, maybe just even one person. Great at what they do but they’d benefit from the guidance and insight of Andy and Joel, who are not just seasoned marketers but business owners, so appreciate it’s all about the bottom line.
We are not here to replace or act as a Marketing Executive, doing the day-to-day implementation. This is not a done-for-you service (although we do provide that separately to many businesses).
This is Marketing Director level work at a fraction of the cost.
We will be your trusted advisers.
Not everyone qualifies to work with Codebreak...
We are looking for business decision-makers who are:
Leaders not followers
Capable of making things happen quickly
Not a d**k
If you fit the bill, you’ll love working with us.
Every successful application starts with a one-hour Discovery Call. For us to sound you out via WhatsApp video, and vice versa. If all goes well, we get the full-day Strategy Session booked in.
Codebreak Consultancy is a rolling three-month commitment. We know a lot of consultancy programmes look for a 12-month minimum but that’s not our bag. A lot can happen in 12 months and we don’t want to hold anyone to ransom.
After the first three months, it switches to a simple rolling one-month deal.
They push us hard to realise our marketing potential. Andy and Joel have been brilliant at using what we take for granted to further the reach of our business.
Us and You
For this to work, this has to be that scary word again – COMMITMENT!
If you’re the sort of person who flits from one supplier to another, always looking for the next shiny new thing to save a few quid, this ain’t gonna work. Marketing is not an overnight fix and never has been. We can’t advise on a leaflet, you send the leaflet out and suddenly your business is transformed. It doesn’t work like that. Sure, we’ve launched Facebook Ads that have had a x10 increase in sales in just one day but marketing success is long-term thinking.
If parting with £999+vat a month for three months will cause you sleepless nights, this ain’t gonna work. You are paying for the advice and support of a highly experienced marketing duo that has the backup of a team. If analysing a landing page takes us 15 minutes, you don’t pay us for the 15 minutes. You pay us for the decades it took us to learn how to do it in 15 minutes.
If you want to monopolize our time, this ain’t gonna work. We have a duty to be responsive to your requests (within one working day) but we can’t drop everything every time you call (unless the call is scheduled). If we are working on something for another client, that deserves our focus. You’d want the same for you.
If your business is not that good, this ain’t gonna work. When customer service has a 1-star rating and the products are of inferior quality, no amount of marketing is going to change anything in the long run. We can only work with values-led business owners who take pride in what they do.
