I'm Dana

I set up The Big Up because I'm passionate about small businesses and I want to help them get big results. I combine marketing strategy and mindset coaching to help overwhelmed founders create success.

I've been fortunate enough to help some of the UK’s best-known companies build their brands and I've created marketing and social media strategies for a huge variety of companies including the BBC, Cadbury and the British Red Cross. You’ll benefit from my extensive marketing agency expertise, tailored to small businesses but without the big agency price tag. Win Win!

I can help you

Are you finding it tough working on your own and need some professional advice?

Does it seem like you never have enough time and need help prioritising?

Do you have brilliant business ideas but are struggling to execute them due to low confidence?

Does a marketing plan or putting yourself on social media feel overwhelming?

What my clients say

Dana has provided business coaching during a crucial time of my start up journey, providing invaluable advice on idea development, product and market research and brand and social media strategy.


Dana has also been a huge help to me in navigating the sometimes unexpected emotional challenges of starting a business.  She suggested practical ways to build my confidence in the business  and the relationships I've been building with my audience. 


Dana tells it how it is, helps you see a problem through a different lens and builds up your self belief to deliver.  She has been my biggest supporter and I couldn't have done it without her.
