Nearly managed it

I’ve got a confession to make. I didn’t fully complete the last week of my 28-day marketing program. I kept putting it to one side and then all of a sudden it was the end of the week. At the weekend I went through my list and was pleased to be able to tick some […]

Those extra special touches

I found myself doing something last week that I never do. I placed an order with a cold caller. Really, I never ever do that – hate cold calls and never buy anything over the phone (or on the doorstep for that matter). But last week I did. Actually, from the point of view of […]

Gearing up for some marketing

I’ve spent the last couple of days preparing a 28-day marketing plan as laid out by Get Clients Now!. I’m hoping that following a plan will help us kick-start our marketing which has been a bit non-existent recently.
