Grabbing Attention - What Works For You?
Assuming we all agree that grabbing attention is the most important aspect of running your business, what do you find works for you?

What did you last do to pull in some new sales enquiries? Did it work as you expected? If not, what did you learn?

I have found using a formal Introducer Programme a massive success. Getting others to promote my business for me in return for a significant fee worked wonders.

If attracting others is not the most vital area of your business then tell me what is.

Serendipity; being in the right place at the right time. That used to mean having an ad in Yellow Pages but now it means being found in online search.

It's not enough to have attention, people have to be in a buying mood and have a credit card nearby otherwise they flit off to something else.

There's a huge clamour for attention at the moment so it's hard to stand out.

I think there also an opportunity for brands to corner 'trust' in their space. That's linked to the amount of noise.

I run my business from a High Street office in the Georgian seaside market town of Lymington on the edge of the New Forest. I've lived there since the age of 11 apart from a 6-year spell in Walton on Thames, Surrey.. I love music, food, boats and sport [see interests below for specifics] Since the age of 18 I have worked exclusively on my own businesses; from plans to launch an 80-van mobile car valeting franchise, that were scuppered last minute due to a 3 month emergency hospital visit, to importing Nissan vans from Dublin, my career has been a lot of fun. I have started businesses in transport, music, automotive, sales, franchising, catering, development land, conveyancing, tax and of course…unavoidably and unsurprising to me I have ended up where I knew I would one day... marketing. I know James Coakes [at a distance] and have eaten a sandwich in his office located a sausage roll throws away from my own HQ.
BUILD UNQUESTIONABLE CLIENT LOYALTY FOR YOUR B2B SERVICE BUSINESS AT THE UK’S ONLY REGULAR MARKETING BASED WORKSHOP Business is about standing out & not blending in Implanting your company’s offer into the minds of your intended buyers should be your no.1 priority. Encouraging people to talk about your business in the way you want them to isn’t easy, but it’s vital. It is possible though. All you need to do is decide what do you want to be known for & how do you want others to describe you. Next, create your USP [your Utterly Seductive Proposal] and forcefully rubber-stamp it across the entirety of all your marketing. Your Utterly Seductive Proposal is the all-conquering headline by which you wish to be known by. It powerfully and succinctly conveys why your ideal target client should do business with YOU over any of your competitors. I run events in the south of England where the entire focus is on creating your USP.
There are no companies to show.
