Meet the Small Business Life Team
Small Business Life is a joint venture between career advertising sales executive Sarah Crown and former professional journalist Tracey Sweetland.
Small Business Life’s sales director Sarah Crown has more than 20 years media experience, having spent her entire career within the Emap and Bauer Media portfolio.
Over her time in these businesses she has launched and developed many brands and publications that have become core products in their specialist sector.
Over the last 12 years, Sarah’s concentration has been on the B2B market and has included launching magazines, websites and events that have brought the UK automotive B2B sector together.
The secret to her success is to have a vision for a gap in the market, to provide a product that is engaging for the audience and profitable for the advertisers.
Sarah left Bauer Media early in 2019 to pursue her own business ventures working with the local business community on their media requirements.
