About Beltin'

1:2:1 & Group Training

Don't know your graphic art from your elbow? Thought SEO was a band from the 70s? Last updated your story in secondary school English? Don't worry, you're not beyond help. In our digital marketing training sessions, we explain the basics of digital marketing to business owners and their staff in a down-to-earth, easily digestible manner

Digital marketing

Social media is an ever-changing world and not all businesses have the time to cover all bases when it comes to the myriad platforms out there. Let us take this pressure away. After giving us an overview of what you want to achieve, we'll take the reins and you can get on with what you do best.

Website building

If you don't have a website (or yours is a bit 2008) we can sort that too. We can help drive traffic to your website by turning all the SEO red lights to green in your favour – your site will be bumper to bumper with visitors by the time we've finished with it. With careful content planning and some cracking graphics, your website can be a true asset to your business.

Copywriting

Stuck for words? We're never short of something to say. Especially if it's about a beltin' business. We have tons of experience in writing for the national press about a range of weird and wonderful subjects. We can write until the cows come home about what you do – and this is great news for your website as content is king.

Marketing Wigan one business at a time.

Beltin’ Marketing Wigan was founded in 2020 by Vicky Galligan, who has a background in journalism and teaching. Vicky is also involved in her local community in Shevington, setting up the Facebook Group Shevington & Standish Mums in 2012 (which now has over 5,000 members) and joining the local Parish Council in 2019.

Strengthening community links.

Vicky has spent years helping local community groups in Shevington to get online, run social media accounts, produce eye-catching posters and leaflets and generally get the word out about the fantastic things that happen in our communities. From fetes to food banks, litter picks to cake sales, Vicky has helped coordinate and publicise community events and can often be seen running a stall on a field or rattling a collection bucket in Shevington alongside many fabulous volunteers in the area.

Bringing a skillset to benefit your business.

With a degree in journalism with English, Vicky worked in newspapers and magazines and still edits various national publications. This means her copywriting skills are bang on. 

When networking, she can waffle on for hours if you don’t stop her. Cake is usually the best way to do this.

And after a spell teaching in primary, Vicky decided to use her planning, delivery and assessment skills to show business people how to hone their digital marketing skills. She also runs workshops in personal branding and career development.

A helping hand for solopreneurs. 

Vicky’s passion lies in helping people achieve their potential and making others believe in themselves. Along her journey in life, Vicky has met many people who just needed a little bit of help in order to uncover their hidden talents, learn some new skills and gain a little bit more confidence before they could truly fly.

A marketing service with social value.

Having worked with many community groups, charities and other not-for-profits (NFPs), Vicky can empathise with the difficulties a small marketing budget can bring. That’s why NFPs receive a 20% discount off Beltin’ prices and free training is available thanks to the Beltin’ Fund. Vicky can also advise NFPs on accessing funding from other sources, which can help pay for marketing. Her work with NFPs such as Flourish Together CIC, Yellow Jigsaw CIC, Mind Train CIC and Developing Matters CIC means she has built up a sound knowledge of the social enterprise scene in Greater Manchester.

5% of Beltin' fees are added to the Beltin' Marketing Fund, which funds training for not-for-profit organisations.
