Marketing Consultants in Reading
We're passionate about helping our clients achieve their professional goals and invest in the future success of their businesses, Firms or individual careers.
Whether that's through improving a client's LinkedIn Profile in order to generate more enquiries, or obtain that dream job, all the way through to working with high street law firms and sole practitioners who want to substantially increase their revenue but need the help of a team with the time and expertise to make it happen.
Why work with us?
Rachel Tombs was a successful, high fee-earning Solicitor for more than 15 years, during which time she had additional responsibilities for management and business development within the solicitors' firms she worked in. During her career, Rachel discovered LinkedIn was an incredibly cost-effective tool that could help grow each firm and reinforce her local networking efforts. LinkedIn helped Rachel keep in contact with clients on a very regular basis, also enabling her to reach out to prospective target clients and thereby increase the firm's profits.
Rachel set up Links2Leads over two years ago in order to work with businesses within the Thames Valley and London areas, helping her clients re-word their LinkedIn profiles using proven, expert methods that guarantee increased visibility and generate those ideal professional opportunities through workable daily strategies.
Who have we worked with?
Over 300 varied businesses in the UK have decided to work with Links2Leads, trusting us to re-draft their individual and corporate LinkedIn Profiles, provide 1-to-1 personal and in-house LinkedIn Coaching or deliver group training at one of our monthly LinkedIn Training Courses hosted throughout Berkshire & Hampshire. We are so proud of the amazing results that we achieve for our clients and to back it up, we have over six pages of reviews on our website!
Last year, Links2Leads acquired several law firms and barristers chambers as legal marketing and business development clients. Rachel and her team are considered by clients to be an intrinsic part of their businesses, ensuring that all marketing activities achieve a clear return on investment.
Links2Leads is different to other marketing agencies. Rachel and her team have a proven track-record of working within a law firm environment. We understand the legal market, its clients, processes and regulatory framework. Rachel, in particular, knows only too well the constant pressure of time and billing targets – with every 6 minutes equalling a unit... and time equals money.
Links2Leads works alongside business and legal clients who want to outsource their marketing and business development activities to a trusted, experienced partner, on a monthly retainer.
“Your network is your net worth"... and there's no networking platform more powerful than LinkedIn!
If you think that LinkedIn is only for jobseekers, then think again! True, it's a leading tool that's utilised by recruiters worldwide, but it's also the world's largest and most successful platform for B2B lead generation and the number one channel for distributing business-led content. Nobody can afford to ignore the power of LinkedIn. That's why writing a good LinkedIn profile is so important.
Create and market your own unique ‘brand', with an effective LinkedIn profile
Your LinkedIn profile is not just an online version of your CV. It's your personal website; showcasing YOU, YOUR business, and YOUR brand.
LinkedIn is your worldwide professional platform
Have you ever Googled your own name? If not, try it now. If you have a LinkedIn profile then it should appear somewhere towards the top of the returned search results. It's what you'll want customers, colleagues, recruiters and associates to see when they search for you online. Are you taking full advantage of this invaluable opportunity? Does your profile do you justice and are you happy with what people might see? If not, then my LinkedIn profile writing service is for you.
What's the difference between an expertly written LinkedIn profile and a profile that you've written yourself?
The difference lies in the detail. For example:
There's little point in having a wonderfully written profile if nobody finds it. At this very moment, other members are searching LinkedIn for a specific service or product that they are in need of. Will they find you? By keyword optimising your profile, I can ensure that your profile is picked up by LinkedIn's search engine and in turn by the people who matter
Your profile should market you as an industry expert and as someone who can offer a ‘solution' to the reader through your unique product, service or expertise. When communicated in the right way, a professionally written profile will work hard on your behalf, enticing readers to connect with you.
What is included?
A read through of your most up-to-date CV, followed by a one-hour face-to-face consultation (within a 20-mile radius of Reading) or a Skype or telephone consultation in order to discuss your requirements and timeframes. Following this, I will:
Customise a personalised LinkedIn URL for your profile.
Populate the Contact Information section, add a link to your relevant website and social media pages.
Research and draft a professional and captivating profile headline.
Write a compelling Summary section* and an optimised Current Experience section* to guarantee maximum impact and exposure.
Add a maximum of 25 relevant skills.
Suggest a maximum of 15 targeted LinkedIn groups for you to join, carefully chosen based on your target audience, market sector and geographical location.
*Please note, drafts of the Summary and Current Experience sections and our lists of suggested skills will be sent to you for your approval before being uploaded to your LinkedIn profile. Amendments, where necessary, are restricted to a maximum of two re-drafts.

A legal professional with marketing knowledge and, not less, skill is a rarity. However, Rachel and her team at Links2Leads have achieved the brief. Having had the pleasure of working with Rachel and her team, I have nothing but praise. Their efficiency, organisation and clarity of work is to be admired, as is their creativity and forward-thinking in what can be an otherwise extremely repetitive industry. Rachel and her team completely understood our unique firm, it's needs and expectations, as well as our client base and ethos from the first moment. She took attributes and transformed them into a strategy and an accessible marketing campaign for our clients across the U.K. Possessing an admirable level of attention to detail, integrity and fine-tuned talent, Barrister-Direct would be honoured to recommend Rachel and the team at Links2Leads for any individual or business.

Having attended one of Rachel's workshops recently I came away with a much better understanding of how LinkedIn works and how to utilise it in the best way possible. Rachel has a very relaxed but professional style which made it easier to learn about as well as equip me with the necessary skills to use it with confidence. I would thoroughly recommend you attend one of Rachel's courses if you want to get the best out of LinkedIn.
John Sizer, The Public Access Clerk
I attended a one day workshop with Rachel and enjoyed understanding the workings of LinkedIn. I have 'played' with this platform for a few years and thought I understood the value of it. After the course I felt a lot more confident in fully utilising the value of LinkedIn. Since the course I have been much more active and generated more leads. It certainly bolstered the marketing for my business. If you are thinking of using Rachel, all I can say is will not be disappointed. She is engaging, knowledgable and professional.
Donald Turner, PME TRAINING by BlueGreen Business Development
Rachel delivers regular LinkedIn training to our customers at Bracknell Forest Homes, supporting them to maximize their job search or to market their business using LinkedIn. I thoroughly enjoy working with Rachel, she captures our customers attention and keeps them engaged throughout the sessions. The information and recommendations delivered are relevant to a variety of knowledge and understanding of LinkedIn, proving extremely useful to our customer base. No training session is the same as Rachel is fantastic at identifying the needs of the customers in each session. I have also attended a session which I found beneficial even after using LinkedIn for nearly ten years. It's surprising what even LinkedIn pro's can learn from Rachel. After applying some small changes to my profile that I learnt from Rachel my views increased by 162% in 48 hours and my connections have rapidly grown with useful links, which within my role of business development and networking is crucial!
Sarah Findlay, Employment Advice Coordinator
Rachel has a unique talent in creating interesting and impactful professional LinkedIn profiles, as well as maximising the full marketing and communication potential of LinkedIn. Her skill in extracting one's key attributes and experience from conversation is evident, and is matched by her ability as a wordsmith to convert her findings into a focused and objective output. I would recommend Rachel for harnessing the power of LinkedIn
Stuart Campbell ACMA, CGMA, Finance Director
A wonderful service and very highly recommended: a really potent combination of expert knowledge, customer focus, enthusiasm, and friendliness. If you want to make LinkedIn work better for you - here's how!
Symon Vegro, of Symon Vegro Enterprises - SVE
Rachel's advice has fundamentally changed the way we see LinkedIn and are seen by others. The updated profile produced is far more likely to be effective in communicating how we can add value and by default, make us more attractive to be LinkedIn with.
Andrew Smith, Managing Director - Auricas Ltd
Rachel knows exactly what she is doing and is highly recommended.
Joe Reevy, Director of LegalRSS.uk and Words4Business.com
I recently attended Links2Leads Stage 2 training course in Reading and I was really happy about the outcome. I learnt new tactics to promote my businesses and be more visible on LinkedIn. I highly recommend Rachel Tombs of Links2Leads training courses to everyone looking to develop their business further on.
I work for Thomas Mansfield Solicitors as a Legal Secretary and we invited Rachel Tombs to come and show us more about social media. I absolutely loved what Rachel shared with us and her approach to it. We spent several hours with Rachel and we all enjoyed her session and also it was fun. I have worked for many years as a Virtual Assistant and I still learnt something new. I would definitely recommend her services.
Rachel has expert knowledge of how you can utilise LinkedIn to build and publicise your business. She has excellent coaching skills and many people have benefited from her regular training sessions. Rachel is always willing to offer advice and for anyone who wishes to learn how to best use LinkedIn to build their network and business, I thoroughly recommend her.
I attended a LinkedIn training course that Rachel delivered. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable and is able to share her knowledge clearly. The course was easy to follow, we were able to implement her tips and I came away with clear steps to follow. I would highly recommend attending one of Rachel's training courses.
As a total novice regarding LinkedIn I found the training Rachel provided extremely helpful. The way in which she delivered the training was what made all of the difference. I wasn't entirely comfortable with the idea of using LinkedIn at all, I didn't have a Facebook account at the time either, but I learned that it is a really useful tool in building my business. So, although I am just starting out I am beginning to use the knowledge Rachel shares in her training. It is really worth doing. I would highly recommend Rachel's services to other people who want to use LinkedIn as a way to grow their business! Thanks Rachel
