Laura Dryhurst, founder of The Marketing Smith, faced a common dilemma of many entrepreneurs: how to maintain business momentum and client satisfaction during her maternity leave and the birth of her baby boy. As the due date approached, Laura recognised the need for a reliable solution that would enable her to enjoy her new arrival without compromising the quality and consistency of service her clients had come to expect.
In May 2023, Laura turned to Inkfire, drawn by our specialised Freelance Maternity Cover services. After discussions with several providers, she chose Inkfire for its experienced team, comprehensive marketing expertise, and the assurance of continuous coverage.
Our team, spearheaded by Imali, seamlessly integrated into The Marketing Smith, undertaking the following tasks as whitelabel providers through Laura’s business:
During her 6-month maternity leave, Laura was able to fully disconnect, knowing her clients were in capable hands. Imali and her team’s professionalism and approachability ensured a smooth transition, preserving client relationships and upholding The Marketing Smith’s reputation. The successful handover of a complex contract to a third party, a particularly challenging task, was a testament to the skill and dedication of the Inkfire team.
Laura’s trust in Inkfire was rewarded with an undisturbed maternity leave and the peace of mind that comes with expert support. Communication was efficient and adaptive, with WhatsApp providing a convenient channel for brief updates.
Laura wholeheartedly recommends Inkfire, not only for maternity or paternity cover but for any business considering a temporary leadership transition.
The Marketing Smith’s experience with Inkfire illustrates the invaluable peace of mind and business continuity that can be achieved with the right support.
Laura’s advice to other small business owners looking to utilise Inkfire’s services in future, is to provide a detailed handover document well in advance and to ensure clear communication with the cover team to avoid any last-minute surprises. Her positive experience and the gesture of a pre-baby gift from the team highlights the personal touch and exceptional service standard that define Inkfire.
