"The Awesome Marketing Planner has changed my business life"

This was my first ever time using a planner, rather than my trusty excel spreadsheet. Well, to say that The Awesome Marketing Planner has changed my business life, is not too much of an overstatement. From recording my figures on a weekly basis, so I could really see how my business was doing, to planning my monthly goals, with the constant reminder of what my overall goals are. I cannot thank Claire enough. Cannot wait to buy the next Awesome Marketing Planner as soon as it comes out!

Eden Gruger - Writer

“I could see where I needed to focus”
I’d never used a planner, and absolutely loved the 2020 planner. It kept me on track, allowed me to
visually see and keep a track of my targets and where I needed to focus!
Amanda Heritage – Amanda Heritage Digital Solutions

“It makes marketing doable”
I’ve spent far too much money over the years on planners. When I found this one I knew the search was over. It’s not just a planner, it’s a well-thought-through system that comes with built in cheerleading. It makes marketing something that’s doable, not something complicated and scary. I love it!

I'm currently designing the page layouts on Canva. I will get a proper designer to make them all line up and beautiful BUT this will give you a really good idea of what the pages will look like.

The books will be spiral bound, so will lay flat (very good for planning). The layout might change a bit (because of the spiral binding) and colours might change.

There might be more little ladies and/or I might have even better ideas before this goes to print.

Basically, take this as a good guide as to the content but don't get attached to specifics!

My best attempts at showing you what it will look like - once I get the sample I'll add the proper version.

Here's who each one is perfect for:

  • If you are someone who mainly uses their planner on a desk or table and doesn't really carry it around, the chunky A4 could be perfect for you. It's also perfect if you'd love more writing space in the weekly planner section.

  • If you're a 'stick it in my bag and GO' kinda girl, the A5 is more portable. It's the same size as previous years so if you loved that, choose this one.

  • And if you're all about saving paper and using your planner on your mobile devices, the PDF is for you. (Also if you like to write in your planner and postage from the UK is a bit much, you can print off the PDF pages as you need them).


  • Access to my Mini Marketing Course (worth £97) that covers:
  • How to create your dream business vision
  • How to set realistic targets that will motivate and inspire you
  • How to find profitable customers you'll love to work with
  • How to make money with your customer journey
  • How to come up with easy content ideas for your socials, blogs, newsletters and podcasts
  • How to grow a money mindset

What people say about the Awesome Marketing Planner System:


“The Awesome Marketing Planner has kept me sane in an otherwise mad world this year.”

I have had Claire’s planners for the last 4 years and they have always been good, but they just seem to get better! The planner is clearly set out with all you need to help you focus on what is important for your business each month, from sales, to goal setting, to social media. It can easily be used for any type of business and taken to any meeting, however formal. You also get access to the Facebook group which in itself is invaluable. It is full of people just like you, wanting to share their knowledge and advice. You don’t just get access to Claire’s brain and experience, but the collective hive brain too. I can’t recommend it highly enough!

It has given me focus to concentrate on the areas of my business I needed to concentrate on, along with the support from Claire and the group. I’ve stepped outside my comfort zone. The planner becomes a way of life, something I can pick up, track my figures and make plans ahead of time.

“I buy one every year as I love it so much”
Before using the Awesome Marketing Planner System I hadn’t tracked a single thing in my business, I had no idea what my sales, outgoings, social media following etc were but the planner makes it so easy to track this. I love Claire’s bum kick emails every Monday which reminds to look at my numbers & I also love that it is more than a planner. Lots of great advice & tips from Claire about marketing plus a little community too supporting each other in the Facebook group just for Plannerinas…I will buy one every year as I love it so much!

Karen Sidell – Bop Tots

“The content is excellent”
I was a late starter with the planner as i was tipped off about how fantastic it was by Zoe Wongsam of Hepburn and Hughes. I am amazed at how much info and support comes with it, along with a whole network of lovely people running their own businesses. The content is excellent and the way it works really gets you focused on what has to be done, the occasional ‘bum kick’ helps too! It’s fabulous, and it has really helped my business Dezanne Design get a structure and improve in manageable steps. Thank you!

Denise Wongsam – Dezanne Design

“It makes me accountable”
In a nutshell, the Awesome Marketing planner has kept me organised and focused. Everything I need to think about, in order to grow my business, can be found within its cover and thus makes me accountable.

“It’s indispensable!”
I’ve been using the planner since Claire first started making them… the most useful – and now indispensable planner of them all! Xx

Sue McKenna – The Maldon Soap Company

“It’s a must for all business owners”
I’ve been using Claire’s amazing planner for the past 3 years. I love the extra benefits of the weekly email and monthly challenges. It’s beautiful quality with a clear design. It’s a must for all business owners to help keep us on track in our busy lives.
