*1-2-1 Business Review
This is a 1 hour session where we get together (over a coffee – make mine a large one!) or by Skype and go through your business in detail. We go into the reasons why you are running your business and what your aims and goals are…what you are hoping to achieve? We look at your marketing, social media, web presence, advertising, branding and image. I will follow that up with a written report of my recommendations, along with a follow-on discussion with you. If I feel you need expert help, for example with your website with a web designer or that you need to talk to an accountant, I will give you the contacts. I do not know everything, but I can lead you in the right direction, and I will follow up to see how you are getting on and whether you need anything more.
*1-2-1 Business Assistance
If you require more personal and direct help, this may be a good choice for you. You might not know how to set up and build a database, and perhaps need to be shown how to use Microsoft Excel to do it. You may benefit from some help with using your iPad for business. You might want to go back to basics with social media and how or what to say, for your needs – your communication, maybe you want to go through your marketing planner ideas and campaigns etc.
