Twitter new Safety Center

I love Twitter for its openness and potential and all the crazy and wonderful stories of people connecting on Twitter. And of life experiences that happen because of Twitter. And of course the speed of information sharing and opinion/sentiment airing. But there are often concerns about people using it for evil purposes, like abuse and spam.

How the world’s leading community of entrepreneurs (EO) is helping small businesses

As a small business owner, I have a very strong empathy with my clients. I think this empathy serves me well as I understand the time and cash constraints that prevent them from going all gung ho into the marketing activities I advocate.

Muddy Run - obstacles

On Sunday 22nd June the London TLD girls (me, Elisa, Camille, Tamlyn) and Tamlyn’s sister Kim ran in a 5KM event at London’s Olympic Park called Pretty Muddy   – with lots of mud involved. It was an obstacle course, and included crawling through tubes, stepping through tires, climbing ropes and sliding down slides. 

Marketing to deepen clients relationships

Most people say that the best source of business usually comes from existing clients.

Either referrals from clients or repeat business.

So, there is something to be said for focusing on this.

But it can feel awkward asking your clients for referrals. I know we are meant to do it, and “if you don’t ask you don’t get” and many people swear by it. Personally ,I still find it hard. Being in the UK it’s maybe harder for us.
