    I think that this is a ‘push’ approach and should be handled carefully. Consider the early messages that you plan to send out, very carefully. What would you say, in the inaugural campaign?

    Do you Like and Comment within Twitter, Will? I find it challenging to find the time to do this!

  • For as long as I can remember, I have had a Twitter account: https://twitter.com/nigeltemple
    I enjoy posting there, engaging with people and ‘following back’. I find Twitter to be the easiest social media platform to use. Do you have any Twitter tips to share with me?

  • A significant benefit of having a marketing plan is the opportunity to:
    A. Think it all through and…
    B. Talk it over with someone else.
    In times of accelerating change, plans need to be flexible.
    They are helpful in that they provide strategic direction and a conceptual framework of resource (time and money) allocation.
    It is all too easy to…[Read more]

    • I agree Nigel, joining up the correct dots and executing the vehicle for push information and then professionally handling incoming leads is terribly important.

    Thanks for sharing this, David. Yes, I think that continuing to write about what you do (via blogs etc) is a good thing. I wish that I had a bit more time to do this. 🙂
    PS Thank you for your kind words about my knowledge; I do my best and I keep learning!

    A pleasure, Alessio. I know the feeling when you are thinking about doing this: will we lose what we have gained so far? You may wish to think of this as an opportunity to rethink your SEO strategy.
    Prior to building the new website, build SEO into your thinking from the ground up. This is partly a marketing exercise (customer segmentation…[Read more]

    As far as I can tell, Alessio, there may be a temporary ‘falling off’ of SEO rankings when you redevelop the site. This can be for a number of reasons, not just URL redirection. I went through this when I completely reworked https://www.nigeltemple.com and I used a plugin to redirect old URLs to new ones. Google took a little while to pick it all…[Read more]

    Do you have any duplicate Title Tags within your website?
    Each Title Tag should be unique and they should read like a headline.
    Include the most important words at the front of the tag.
    As always, any questions, just ask.

    Thanks for sharing this, Will.

    Yes, I am interested in Neuro Linguistic Programming and I have enjoyed learning about it. How do you use it yourself, Will?

  • Nigel Temple posted a new activity comment 1 week, 3 days ago

    Yes, I agree, David. I have been reviewing a member’s Twitter account and it struck me that I couldn’t find any engagement (hence this post).
    It is interesting to see who is good at engagement and how they do it.
    PS There are many stories of well known brands that ignore social media comments to their peril.

    How do you get engagement within social media?
    There are 2 social media strategies: broadcasting and engagement.
    The former includes sharing blog entries and telling the world what you are doing.
    The latter includes Likes, Shares and Comments.
    In order to generate engagement, asking open questions can work well.
    What is more, the right image…[Read more]

    • I like the point about engagement, but I guess it has to be backed up with a bit of broadcasting.

    I like: “….providing intermittent and quite forgettable food and service…”
    I have found that corporations typically take a long time to make a decision.
    Partly, this is because of the number of people that are involved in decision making.
    Perhaps this explains why so many famous name companies from 10 years ago are no longer with us.

    Thank you for sharing this, Phil. SEO is a big subject, isn’t it. On the one hand, it helps if you understand the technical side of it. However, the big issue is finding the time to write on a regular basis.

  • Nigel Temple posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    Good for you, David. Although you have to be careful not to be over optimistic (I know what I am talking about here), optimists tend to do better in life. Productising your services is a good thing and please let me know how you get on with this process.

  • Nigel Temple posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    It would help if we knew whether there is going to be a Brexit deal, Phil. Today, I read that the French are saying that they won’t budge on fishing rights. All of this makes it difficult to plan, however, much will change between now and Christmas (starting with the USA election on November 3rd).

  • Nigel Temple posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    There is much to be said for adapting to change circumstances and market requirements, Will. It is interesting that you are targeting SEO specialists.

  • Nigel Temple posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    Yes, I agree that we will all need to be flexible and I think that a creative approach will help. I take your point about the supply chain; sadly, some suppliers will not survive or their terms may change.

    What will you do differently in 2021? Do you think that it is going to be an awful, moderate or amazing year for your enterprise? Are you starting to make plans for the New Year? How will you reallocate your time and resources? To what extent will you be using digital marketing? Will you outsource anything? What do you need to learn, in order to…[Read more]

    • Hi Nigel
      Whatever you plan it is likely to change in 2021 as we have at least two major unknows, Covid and Brexit. Hence I believe one will need to be flexible and move promptly! For those of us making and or selling produces, the supply chain has been a huge challenge and will almost certainly continue to be so. Businesses need to make sure, they…[Read more]

    • Yes, I agree that we will all need to be flexible and I think that a creative approach will help. I take your point about the supply chain; sadly, some suppliers will not survive or their terms may change.

    • I have strategically moved into a new business that I can manage without travel.
      I am optimistic about 2021 and intend to adopt a lot more targeted push technology.
      With traction I want to use commission based only sales people to forge alliances with SEO specialists.

      I also want to invest in auto subscription billing using Xero

      I plan not to…[Read more]

    • My main issue will be supply (importing from Finland mainly) so Brexit may affect lead times, customs fees and exchange rates. Not a lot to be done until the new year starts, and we see how it pans out, but a couple of friends of mine in similar situations are bulk-buying in December. I will do the same in a more modest way, so at least I can…[Read more]

    • Cautiously optimistic, it wasn’t long ago that I wondered if I had a viable business, but being flexible and spotting opportunities, and peoples desire to spend more time outdoors has certainly helped. The challenge with being flexible I find is the time it takes to decide how best to accommodate a client and does it fit with what I want to be…[Read more]

    • Realistically…hides behind the sandbags, I dont think I will be doing too much differently than what I have been doing.
      When lockdown came, from the outset I said of the Pro-theatre promo and conference work, “I haven’t lost any work, it’s postponed for a year”. MAYBE, a year might be optimistic! In the meantime film and tape transfers, have…[Read more]
