Clive Wilson - Marketing Alliance Founder

Clive Wilson
Founder and Marketing Solutions Curator

Clive’s business and marketing experience spans 30 years, and includes traditional print, graphic design, typesetting, photo-editing, new media, website development and eCommerce.

In 2002, Clive began building a website design & technology agency based in Surrey (UK).

Over 13 years, the company provided design, bespoke web application development, marketing, training and support to more than 250 clients, mainly in the UK but also in Australia, Norway, Canada, Seychelles, Barbados, North America, Iraq and Thailand.

Throughout his extensive career, Clive has collaborated with diverse organisations spanning the spectrum of size, profit orientation, and charitable focus at local, national and international levels.

The common thread that persists across sizes, sectors, and industries is that business owners and managers are continually grappling with strategic decisions of what to do with marketing and the tactical complexities of how to do it.

Compounding these obstacles are the ever-evolving and ever-growing landscape of technology, the vast expanse of online channels and understanding each channel’s culture and etiquette.

In 2018, frustrated by the relentless challenge SME business owners face in finding the right marketing and business support partners to work with, Clive began putting together a revolutionary solution that later became The Marketing Alliance.

Clive is a hugely experienced strategic Marketing Manager and is adept at distilling complex propositions into clear, audience-centric brand messaging that delivers demonstrable results.

With an eye for detail and an ear for nonsense, Clive pushes back and challenges his Agency partners to bring out their very best and maximise the return on his investment.

Mike Alexander Testimonial

It’s rare to meet a marketing manager as passionate about results as Clive. I’ve found that his ability to cut through the ‘noise’ of marketing to focus on driving real results, in this case, leads, is second to none.

I was impressed by Clive’s ability to reframe how companies look at their products and services. He is able to better connect to target audiences by focusing on the value the products or services offer, and wider problems they solve, rather than their technical details or specifications.

Steve Cambridge Testimonial

Having known and worked with Clive for nearly 15 years, in varying guises and on numerous projects, we have developed a strong working relationship built on trust and a strong work ethic.

Unlike many marketing professionals who just focus on the immediate/tactical tasks, Clive also develops long term marketing and business strategies that help businesses improve sales and ultimately their bottom line.

Carole Graham Testimonial

Clive is strategic and realistic in understanding what is needed and what will work for his various audiences. He always knows what he wants, and if he isn’t sure of some of the detail, he takes and listens to advice from the experts and then acts upon it.

He expects the highest standards and pushes back until the work is exactly right.

Alan Hiscox Testimonial

Clive is someone who I have known for a number of years through attending networking events and has always impressed me with his sound knowledge of all things to do with Marketing.

Always approachable, always interested in other people and constantly interested in developing himself and his business.

Mark Sweetinburgh Testimonial

Working with Clive as a client, it has always been clear that he is quick to understand what is often a complex area of the law and I have always found him to adopt a pragmatic and commercially focussed approach to protecting IP and dealing with any disputes.

In my experience, this is valuable in an area in which matching budget to commercial aims is particularly important.

Chris Burton Testimonial

Clive is always looking for new ways to make progress and do things better.

He has a great ability to interpret the change required and apply it with large doses of common sense and keeping it simple, so there’s a higher chance of success and everyone understands what needs to happen and why.

David Gibbons Testimonial

I worked with Clive when he and his team were evaluating the way forward for his business and clients.

I found Clive to always be focused on the best outcome for his clients, while paying attention to what was important to his staff members. A real professional.

Martin Levy Testimonial

Clive Wilson managed to convert me from someone who reluctantly accepted the necessity for a website, into a real enthusiast.

We frequently receive compliments from customers and others for the quality of (Clive’s) site. Having got me that far, Clive has now created an Instagram fan too!

Claire Scott Testimonial

I met Clive when I came into his business to help him and his business partner review and optimise their internal working processes.

I found Clive to be extremely passionate about the clients he managed and absolutely committed to providing not just an excellent service but an outstanding customer experience, while always ensuring that his delivery team were happy and supported.
