“Back to School” Special

Back to School Sale

It’s that time of year, again — when get­ting kids back to school means smal­ler busi­nesses struggle to find time for vital sea­son­al mar­ket­ing. Also, it seems some folks were dis­ap­poin­ted to miss my Anniversary Sale because they didn’t have time to sign up.

So, I’m (par­tially) re-open­ing the sale for a few days more, and mak­ing it super-easy for you.

Some of the deals were just too big to repeat, but most are re-lis­ted below — this time with PayP­al but­tons for quick and easy signup. Just please note that:

  • Any pay­ment made con­sti­tutes accept­ance of my cur­rent Terms
  • I only deal with UK-based firms that I truly believe I can help. If you don’t seem to fall into that cat­egory, I’ll refund your order ASAP, no harm, no foul

Please check out the links in each sec­tion below for full details — and demos, where applic­able.… Read the rest

5 Great Reasons To Start A Business Blog

start a business blogIf you own a loc­al busi­ness, you may be won­der­ing wheth­er to start a busi­ness blog. Per­haps you aren’t sure how it could help you, or you lack the time to cre­ate qual­ity con­tent con­sist­ently.

On the oth­er hand, you’ve heard that con­tent mar­ket­ing can take your busi­ness to the next level.

So, is start­ing a blog worth it? How could it help your busi­ness? Let’s review a few of the best reas­ons to start a busi­ness blog.

1. Drive Website Traffic

The most obvi­ous part of run­ning a busi­ness online is that low traffic to your web­site means low sales. That’s why many busi­ness own­ers spend lots of money each month on PPC ads to boost site traffic.

Social Marketing For Local Markets (Wales & Southwest)

Social Marketing - Wales & Southwest UK1.96 bil­lion. That’s how many people are on social media. It’s expec­ted to grow to 2.5 bil­lion this year. Social media has made the world smal­ler and more access­ible. As such, social mar­ket­ing can pro­mote your busi­ness to a massive audi­ence, mak­ing it a key advert­ising chan­nel.

Still, many small busi­nesses in and around Cardiff and Bris­tol tar­get loc­al mar­kets, either across the UK or spe­cific­ally in South Wales and the South­w­est. Hav­ing an inter­na­tion­al reach isn’t always a pri­or­ity.

So, how do you reach a loc­al or niche audi­ence with social mar­ket­ing? Here are a few tips:

Know Your Audience

Do you know who your tar­get audi­ence is? Who are you talk­ing to when you cre­ate a mar­ket­ing cam­paign social media?

GDPR — Where To Start?

GDPRThe new Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR) comes into force on May 25th 2018. It will affect every busi­ness and change many estab­lished busi­ness prac­tices and busi­ness mod­els. It will also require a fair bit of work to ensure com­pli­ance, so if you aren’t already work­ing on that, you need to learn about this and start now.

I was going to do a lot of research and attempt to write some­thing about how all busi­nesses need to be ready for it. How­ever, I’m not a law­yer, and giv­ing bad advice could be risky. Also, there is no way that I could come up with some­thing as clear or com­pre­hens­ive as Heath­er Burns’ white paper on GDPR for Busi­ness Own­ers & Seni­or Exec­ut­ives.

If you have a busi­ness of any size, wheth­er it’s online or not, or if you’re even just at the stage of con­sid­er­ing set­ting up a busi­ness, you need to read that.… Read the rest
