Before I begin, let me just make it absolutely clear that this is not a question I get asked daily. It is not something that crops up when I’m waiting for a soya latte in Pret, or walking the dog. I don’t make apocryphal questions up to suit some blog post. But. When people actually
This website is overdue a total makeover. It started off almost four years ago as a simple brochure site of 4 pages to showcase my copywriting services and it's since gone off on more tangents than a parliamentary Brexit debate (in a similar time span) Keep it fresh You see design and branding should never
Decent website but how are you driving traffic there? I design websites for clients. Done pretty well at it the last year too. 150 projects completed, with more stacked up, in line. I didn’t drive business though solely through this website or blogging prolifically. I’ve built a following, a big following on social media. LinkedIn
I work alongside a fair few estate agents and having been in the industry myself for a couple of years, I totally understand the holy grail of trying to acquire listings. If you operate a no sale no fee model, you have to get vendors selling homes and then hoping that they pick you and
Social media is a modern-day phenomenon, allowing people to keep in touch with friends, family, coworkers, and even Internet strangers they’ve never met in person before, rather than requiring in-person, face-to-face communication.

The hypocrisy and double
£18,500, 1987, bought via an estate agent in Shaw. Yes: £18,500. Cost of my first home at the tender age of 22 in Oldham, Greater Manchester in 1987. It was cheap for a reason. My salary as a probationary English teacher was £8,137 or £425 a month which was decent back then, when the house
I’m no fan of Morrissey to be honest, even though “This Charming Man” is a key song of my university soundtrack from the early 80s, but he is on to something with his “Every day is like Sunday” tune. I prefer an analogy to Friday to be honest. That’s what self-employment is like. Sunday (or
I often blur the distinction between professional neutrality and political affiliation – to the disgust and delight of friends and foes, but instead of talking Canterbury, Ipswich, Kensington and the Labour swing, let’s look at the General Election marketing. The Maybot went all out for PPC banners – interesting to hear yesterday on Radio 4
I’ve had an Instagram post going round my head for weeks now on the positive aspects of that platform, and I keep meaning to write, edit and publish it, but get sidetracked Homer Simpson style by some gym, coffee or food activity, but now I deliver.
Worry about Twitter marketing no more. I will make you grow. If I had a pound or dollar or euro for every time someone has said to me I don’t get Twitter, I’d be a millionaire or more realistically have £25. Lots of shrewd social media savvy people just don’t get Twitter. Neither did I
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?
