About Us

I’m Ruth Taylor and I run ruca. I come from a public relations and marketing management background, working for local government, Chamber of Commerce and a large FE College, but my venture into business started over 10 years ago.


Ruca offers marketing support to businesses, charities and not for profits.  I write marketing plans to allow businesses to see which tools and campaigns are suitable for their situation, target and budget.  This often brings up ideas that businesses haven’t thought about before and brings consistency in branding for on and offline communications.

Much of my work includes empowering non marketing staff in marketing techniques to promote their own business on a day to day basis.  This sometimes requires mentoring and one to one coaching.


My top tips for small businesses include:


Whether just starting up in business, been running a while and driven into a promotional cul-de-sac or  just need to concentrate on your core activities whilst the marketing is left in safe hands, then ruca can offer support to your business.
