Marketing Strategy, Design & Brand Development

Creative marketing solutions to help you grow your business.

Welcome to

You may have tried it all before, but you have never tried it with us. I can almost guarantee that you have never had a detailed marketing strategy developed… you have probably just been ‘trying this and that’, posting randomly on social media platforms, or signing up to the latest promotion that came through your inbox for Google Adwords or SEO.

It doesn’t work. Adhoc marketing is like pouring your money down the drain. What you need is a clear-cut strategy that unifies your online and offline marketing efforts in a way that is professional and focused on the long-term sustainability of your brand. And you need a team who can work alongside you to manage it all so that you can focus on building your business.

No business plans to fail. Growth is essential for survival and the speed of business evolution is now pivotal for success.⁣ ⁣ Traditional companies that ‘do what’s always been done’ will come unstuck as technology continues to dominate all areas of business. There is no place for arrogance in today’s marketplace. We have seen the mighty crumble.⁣ ⁣ Commitment to trying new processes and technologies in all departments is key. Assessing current systems with an objective appraisal – essential; and breaking out of the box of traditional methods should be at the heart of business culture, both large and small. We can help you do that.⁣ ⁣ – SHARNI-MARIE BARNEY



Dare to be different! "It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone." - Hans F Hansen



Let's never forget that business is all about people - the people we sell to and the people within our organisations. A happy, engaged and fulfilled work team are essential if you want to scale your business successfully. Here's our top tips for investing in your team: ✨ Invest in their personal and professional development ✨ Create a “listening” dialogue ✨ Set clear expectations for each role ✨ Offer the perks and benefits that matter to them ✨ Prioritise work/life balanceHow many of these are you offering your team?



A tailored approach is great for fitting a suit, but often can result in ad-hoc business process within your company. Offering your ideal audience a packaged service that is designed for them can result in faster sales, greater consistency of delivery and overall higher client satisfaction.


As a luxury boutique Lodge in a remote valley in the Kingdom of Bhutan, digital media exposure is a key marketing tool for us to reach our exclusive markets in the US, UK, Europe and Asia. Sharni has taken time to understand who we are, who our market is and successfully developed and implemented a strategy that ensures quality above quantity, resulting in a positive return for our company.

Sharni is an outstanding thinker about technology and has been at the heart of the industry for a long time. She is well connected and has a great ability to get attention from major companies' executives to startups. She is a brilliant marketer and storyteller who has a lot of input and knowledge about digital and social media marketing. Sharni is business-driven and knows to focus on what counts the most.

I highly recommend Sharni and Forj Marketing to anyone needing to either restructure their business as was in my case or to launch a new business or product as she keeps her eye on the ball at all times and offers quality support and advice.I have never learnt so much and so well in such a short period of time. I feel empowered within my business as a result of her help and skill.
Pip Reeves - Quintal Real Estate
Working with Sharni-Marie (Forj Marketing) has been an absolute joy.Sharni-Marie is like the Autopilot of social media, just set up the parameters and she'll do the rest. I've been in business for more than 30 years and finding someone like Sharni-Marie to build and manage my social presence was a godsend.She instinctively knows how to build a channel the right way. She manages every aspect from content sourcing and posting on a schedule to cross channel communications and very importantly channel statistics and KPI reporting, she will even respond to contact requests on my behalf. That's better than Autopilot.If you want someone on your side then you'll be in great hands with Sharni-Marie. Let her build your connections so you can get on with doing what you do best and leave the social development to a professional.You'll be glad you did!

We engaged Sharni-Marie at Forj Marketing to assist us with the set-up of a full online booking system and social media platform. We are a small business that had very little online exposure. Sharni-Marie not only understood the tourism industry, she understood exactly how to bring it completely online and promote us in a very quick and efficient way.From day one, Sharni-Marie has gone to great lengths to ensure that every step of the process is seamless and exactly to our brief. Our staff have had great training and prompt, reliable responses to questions and concerns. We have never waited longer than 24 hours for a response to any questions and Sharni-Marie is always ready to jump online and sort out, change, fix any issue we might come across. Her service and attention to detail is outstanding.The social media package that Sharni-Marie has offered us has produced amazing results and we get positive feedback regularly about the content and high quality of our social media presence.We could not be happier with our outcome and hope to continue using Forj Marketing for our ongoing marketing needs.
