"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Like acorns, independent businesses have the potential to grow and flourish, for this to happen, you need a content marketing strategy that works in a modern world – traditional methods may work for corporate companies but not necessarily for you.

It’s time to bring clarity to your content marketing and strength to your business strategy so you can navigate through the noise of the brand world and shine a spotlight on your business - right in front of your target audience.

Founded by small business and marketing expert Sam Burgess, Small and Mighty Co has been featured on BBC News, Channel 5 News and

Meet Sam

Hi there, I’m Sam Burgess, Founder of Small and Mighty Co. I specialise in all things retail, wellness, marketing and modern day consumer behaviour with a career spanning over 15 years in the industry. From independent shop owners and product-based brands to people-centric service businesses, I’m passionate about championing the incredible independent businesses right across the UK.

In 2016 I made the move to set up the first content marketing consultancy created especially for small businesses specialising in retail, in 2019 I was excited to expand this beyond retail to the independent wellness sector. I want to share the advice usually only available to the big brands with big budgets and educate the small business owner so your business can flourish.

So, why am I so passionate about small business?

Over a decade ago, I was made redundant after the independent retailer I worked for went into administration. I know that had social media of existed back then the way it does today, that independent retailer would still be up and running.

I’m a huge advocate for this sector of the retail industry and will champion you every step of the way as we work to create a community that converts. I also have a wonderful panel of industry experts known as The Co’s who I’ve carefully selected to cover all aspects of running a small retail or people-centric service business.

Alongside mentoring, I also host a weekly podcast, run workshops and speak at major trade shows like Top Drawer and Pure London. I consistently champion the small business community too and you’ll always find me campaigning for everyone to support their local high street and shop independently.

"More than anything,  I want to empower you to take control of your brand and provide the strategy for you to do so."
