Finkk Marketing is Dawn Brown; who is part of a long-established freelance network in the South of England, with marketing, graphic design, web development, coding and content development at its core.
Finkk Marketing was founded in 2007, although the network concept first materalised in 2000, with core members already freelancing and sharing work. The idea was to minimise overheads and offer un-inflated rates for the same professional marketing, design and website development service that an agency might offer.
Dawn gained a post-graduate diploma in Marketing and first moved into industrial PR and marketing with Chloride, followed by two career moves within Dun & Bradstreet International relocating to High Wycombe. Being a keen sailor competing in JOG and RORC racing most weekends meant a return to the South was inevitable, and the opportunity lay with a full-service advertising agency looking to extend their account management team. Dawn developed many accounts into regular, sustained business for the agency, most notably Gales Brewery (George Gale & Co) working on beer branding and promotions for its pub estate, branding for the Beatrice Royal Art Gallery, SCATS, Hood Sailmakers and its sponsorship of the Round the World Yacht Race and the launch of the Yeoman Navigation plotter.
After several years, an opportunity arose to go freelance at first and then grow that freelance business with other professionals in the related fields of design and website development.
Dawn’s aim and that of the network is to simply gain more business for a client in an ethical, professional and impartial way; by advising on the right mix of marketing tools and techniques for any given client objective and setting up appropriate measurement for future decision making.

And what about the person?
Well, big boat sailing became infrequent due to the priority of bringing up 2 children (now young adults) while running the business. This included the world of Optimist and National 12 sailing, much smaller in scale but not necessarily easier to manage whichever way you look at it. I’ve spent years in the past competing with horses. I’m still passionate about skiing and now enjoy (most of the time) the challenges of training our young working dogs Dylan and Scout.
