Rust and Roots was born in September 2019 and since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with a wide range of wonderful small businesses… from a pet accessory company to a makeup artist, high end jewellers and even a clinical psychologist!

While their businesses may be very different, there is one thing that my clients always have in common – their passion for their work and for their customers.

The story behind our name…

Rust isn’t just a pretty colour ya know… It is also the Czech word for grow. I lived in the Czech Republic as a child and thought that including růst in my business name was a nice little nod to that. It is certainly an added bonus that I adore all shades of orange.

Rust and Roots really encompasses my purpose as a brand. I want to support independent business owners as they plant their roots and with my support, continue to grow.

Who’s the human behind the business?

That would be me! Hi, I’m Bekah.

I’m a digital native who is passionate about supporting small businesses and helping them grow with good copy and good content.

When I’m not at my laptop singing the praises of some incredible small businesses, you will probably find me walking in one of Glasgow’s beautiful parks with my two doggos and a flat white in hand… Ideally with a cookie in my bag for later too.

Small business owners are chronic over-workers.

When you’re a business owner, you’re expected to wear a million hats all at once and it can be incredibly overwhelming, but your digital marketing hat? What if you passed it on and let me wear it?

Gone are the days of getting to Friday and realising you’ve not posted on social media all week.

Or the times where you’re desperate to launch new products but still have to write those dreaded product descriptions.

Or what about that pesky email marketing? Have you sent an email lately to remind your customers that you’re still alive?

I’m here to take these tasks off your hands, so you can get back to doing what you love.

Wondering how I can help?

Ultimately, I’m here to help you do more of what you love and less of what you don’t.

Chances are, you didn’t start your small business excited about scheduling social media posts or writing creative copy for your site. However, I did! That’s what Rust and Roots is all about.
