Social media marketing prices, how to grow online

Social Media Marketing Prices for Small Businesses? First let’s rewind to my childhood – which some would argue hasn’t ended yet: from when I was five in 1970 to ahem 2016. Yes I’ve had a tough paper round (it was teaching what did it). You remember that thud as Yellow Pages landed through the letterbox?

How to improve GCSE English Language in 2017

No matter how hard I try, no matter how often I shake off the  shackles, leg irons and make a dash for freedom, I always return. Return to what I’ve done since 1987: teach. Teaching English, GCSE English Language and English Literature.

Stuart Walton, no wine, and I’m whining

Stuart Walton, my name. I thought again about my name tonight as years ago, an astute and talented colleague of mine, Mark Williams, a History teacher in Stoke on Trent, delighted me one morning when he carried in a book he’d bought for me, with my name on it. Stuart Walton.

Email Copywriting, how to get success for business

I don’t know about you but I’m inundated daily by emails, with many examples of woeful email copywriting. Inundated with emails offering 50 free spins, a free £10 spreadbet, £50 if I open an online poker account – and I don’t even gamble – except in Spring, accompanied by lambs, obviously.

Generation Rent – why the future scares me.

Generation Rent – me? No. Not me. £30 a week I paid at 18 for halls of residence accommodation on the 9th floor of Wearmouth Hall in Sunderland, pre-demolition obviously. £120 a month, which included breakfast, evening meal and all utility bills.

10 Downing Street – who did Cameron use to sell?

David Cameron left number 10 Downing Street today and handed over the keys to Theresa May in possibly the quickest exchange and completion ever – apart from pub ownership exchange in “Eastenders” or “Coronation Street.”

Great Yarmouth – what is its oldest house?

In an idle moment, I began musing about old properties in this part of east Norfolk, knowing that Great Yarmouth has 1000 years of history, with the Minster (St Nicholas Church) being one of the most historic.

Writers needed – how to spread your writer’s block

Writers needed – how to spread your writer’s block:  is a title that sounds like a case of the lurgy? But it’s a search term “writers needed” that I sometimes reach out for, to go all Linkedin, to find some “synergy” and ahem income.

25 things I can do for your business

Meet Stuart Walton, freelance writer and copywriter, here listing 25 things I can do for your business. Read on.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

The Guardian, that bastion of muesli-munching, Birkenstock wearing, bearded, politically correct readers – i.e., me, published an article this week that caught my eye for its unusual candyfloss content: the 10 Best Albums of the first half of 2016.

Estate agency websites – 10 things you need to do

Estate agency websites are often neglected by their business owners, with many labouring under the misapprehension that as long as a property is on Rightmove or Zoopla, it will sell. As Bob Dylan croaked though, “The times, they are a changing.”

Free writer doesn’t mean free from payment. In this expansive publication, I thought I’d address – at great length – whether writers, document writers, article writers, should write for free. It’s handily labelled A to Z with some decent (and some not so decent) attempts to subtitle like an acrostic poem. X was tricky –

Can you sell property without Rightmove or Zoopla?

Given the huge portal costs and the attempts by the On The Market to break this duopoly, can you successfully sell a property as an estate agency without using these three behemoths?

How to move up, not sideways, in crabby Cromer.

Cromer, proclaimed as the “Gem of the Norfolk coast” on its welcome signs, is a rather grand Victorian coastal settlement, with a vibrant property market, which I’ll talk about later.
