Freelance CRM, e-Marketing, Consultancy and Business IT Services
Freelance Services for e-Marketing, CRM and other popular Business systems
In today’s current financial climate, many businesses are unable to justify employing their own dedicated IT or Marketing personnel!
In situations such as these, we can offer professional services to enhance your team and help you grow your business – without the commitment to employing dedicated staff.
Use our services only when you need to, or use them on a regular weekly / monthly basis – the choice is yours.
We work remotely (or on-site when needed), and we will be happy to agree a fixed rate for the work required. Whether it’s by the hour, daily, weekly or on a monthly basis – the choice is yours thus allowing you to budget for your IT and Marketing needs.
Your work is carried out by a professional – someone who is used to working with owner managed SME and Blue Chip companies. This previous work life experience allows us to take the corporate or owners perspective(s) when providing advice on methodology and cost effective solutions.

Previous Business Owner Experience
In a previous life, Bev owned and operated an SME computer business providing new and refurbished PC’s to businesses and the general public; with one of her sites located within the Atrium of the University of Derby.
The business built custom PC’s and refurbished ex corporate PC’s to sell to businesses, schools and the general public; the University campus site also provided Network services for the students residing in Halls of Residence and worked closely with the University Communications and IT Departments to develop and trial the first wi-fi services within the University campus.
Due to changes in her business model making trading difficult, Bev closed the businesses and accepted an employed Business IT Consultant role with a large East Midlands based Accounting & Business Advisory practice which helped her gain product sales and implementation accreditation for a number of software packages these included Iris Exchequer®, Sage® CRM, Gold-Vision® CRM and a working knowledge of the Dynamics® NAV system; Bev is also a qualified Microsoft Office®Master Instructor.
After 8 years of being employed, Bev decided to return to building her own business again, specialising in services for web based CRM systems including: Gold-Vision®, webCRM®, Zoho®, BlueCameroo® and e-marketing systems and has also honed her design skills and is now a competent user of the Adobe® Creative Suite ie., InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop, Dreamweaver, Muse and WordPress® systems.

Google 5 Star Reviews…
We recently produced two new WordPress websites (for different clients); both clients appreciated our work and took the time to leave us some great feedback. here’s a link to both reviews .
ZigZag-IT / Bev has been working closely with the webCRM® team as a freelance CRM Consultant from 1st January 2018. She has worked on most of our larger contracts and has become very much part of our freelance team; indeed, Bev slots in well and readily steps up to the challenge of helping our new and existing customers by providing implementation, training and support services.
We selected Bev as a freelancer because she had experience of a number of CRM and accounting systems. She has also run her own businesses and so understands not just our CRM solutions but the customers requirements such that she can add real value and suggestions to their systems. Nearly a year later we continue to commission Bev to help with our largest new customers and she also assists us with providing consultancy and support into our existing customer base.
We have received very positive feedback from our clients regarding Bev’s work. She’s brought fresh eyes to our business in general; we continue to use Bev’s services and are happy to recommend.
Stephen Todd – Director webCRM UK
Like many SME’s, our “database” consisted of a box of business cards, an out of date spreadsheet and good intentions. Following a recommendation, we commissioned Bev at ZigZag to bring us up to date with our competitors, as we were always too busy doing the day job!
We now have a Gold-Vision® CRM system that Bev has implemented from scratch and all of our staff have been trained on its use to gain maximum efficiency.
We then took the CRM system to the next stage by adding the Connect e-marketing functionality, and we have subsequently retained Bev for a number of hours each month to administer the system and produce regular e-news and email campaign mailshots on our behalf.
We are very pleased with the excellent service, professionalism and attention to detail.
David Griffiths – Managing Director Sterling Capital Reserve Limited
“I have known Beverley at ZigZag for several years as a business acquaintance. While setting up my new venture, a small business in accountancy recruitment, Beverley was instrumental in supporting me regarding my IT needs. In short she has worked wonders in guiding me to the most cost effective, easiest to adapt and easy to learn systems.
Her manner is courteous and approachable yet businesslike. She displays a good sense of humor under pressure and is ever mindful of the best outcome for the client.
Beverley approaches a task from the customer’s perspective, seeking to understand the nature of the business and its IT requirements before making recommendations.
Once objectives are understood and agreed, Beverley will work quickly, effectively and always communicates the alternative solutions and will discuss the best applications for the IT needs of the business. Beverley amazes me with her IT knowledge and experience, and how it can enhance business. I’m sure this comes from the experience of having run her own business. She advises from experience and not theory.
I can highly recommend ZigZag-IT and Beverley very highly, as a committed professional who provides a no nonsense practical solution to IT needs”
Chris Cutting – Managing Director CCR – Chris Cutting Recruitment
“As a relatively new company involved in the Marine Sector with a highly complex route to market Coldharbour required a CRM system that could cope with the integration of a multitude of resource data from around the world. Not an easy task by any means but one which Beverley at ZigZag took on board with her usual professional approach and extensive IT skills. We decided to go with Gold-Vision® CRM and the end result is a superb system tailored to give our sales staff a distinct advantage over the competition by being able to foresee months in advance potential worldwide key opportunities.
I have no hesitation in recommending Beverley to any young companies that lack both the time and skills necessary to create a good CRM system that is essential to their business growth in this very competitive world. “
Howard Towers – Chief Operating Officer Coldharbour Marine Limited
“I have to say that if it wasn’t for Bev at ZigZag, there is very little chance that my stand at the biggest business show in the UK Business 2012 (02 London) would have existed, let alone would have looked as good as it did. Bev coordinated suppliers brilliantly for me, allowing me to get on with my day job as head of press, whilst in the background, my stand, hotel, travel and reams of forms were quietly and discreetly taken care of.”
