Small Business Marketing


Working with Linda Daley at Daley Progress Inc. makes my life so much simpler.

Linda Daley
Daley Progress Inc.

Before starting Daley Progress in 2005, I worked for 25 years in logistics and operations in Halifax, Toronto and Regina. (LinkedIn has the details.) I moved back to Nova Scotia in 2002 to be closer to my family. After starting my own small business, I became actively involved with the local business community and organizations which support it. I'm a member of the Centre for Women in Business and 100+ Women Halifax. I teach several programs about small business marketing, and I manage email campaigns and websites for some local charities.

I'm an avid gardener and I love how, through careful planning and hard work, I can grow something beautiful into being. It's the same joy I get from helping clients build their online presence.

I started marketing as a way to avoid selling.

Learning to create websites and newsletters is way more fun than cold calling and sales meetings - at least to me.

My friends - other small business owners - started asking for my help with their websites and newsletters and online marketing projects. Then they started referring their clients and friends to me.

Perhaps I'm an accidental marketer but I'm hyper focused on small business.

The mass of online marketing options is overwhelming to even the most technical mind. Having so many choices can cause brain freeze... like when you drink a slurpee too fast.

Learning and doing go hand in hand.

When I learn something new, my first thoughts are about implementing. How can I use what I've learned for a practical purpose? What's the best way to put it into use? Who can benefit?

Small business owners are busy people with a range of wants and needs, sometimes urgent. We're a great fit if your marketing goals are about building relationships and growing your reputation.
