Launching your business is an exciting time. With all of that positive energy and enthusiasm – and so many thing to think about – it’s understandable you don’t want to get bogged down making colour, font and layout choices for your branding.
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
Do you know that 38% of users will not go over a site if it is not aesthetically appealing? Sure, some poeple won’t notice these things but those who do care do pay attention to design and clarity – these are the types of people who look for quality.
It’s tricky to write advice about pricing as every business is different – and within each business type across the competition, the benchmarks vary wildly! But I do have a few tips – even though we at TLD are:

When I met Stuart and heard his story, I had to try his peanut butter. Luckily he had brought a jar with him to that BNI breakfast meeting! So I bought it off him.

My guest contributions on Marketing Business Forum and Business Matters Magazine
I’ve been busy in the last few weeks writing for a number of online publications. And, I am super-pleased to have added to this list with guest contributions on the Marketing Business Forum newsletter and Business Matters Magazine.
I have been a member of BNI since the summer of 2002. During that time I have learned many skills, and I think it would be useful for anyone running their own business. BNI doesn’t suit every one, as there are several rules to follow, it’s a big commitment, and the meetings occur very early in the morning. But a recent thread on Twitter inspired me to write this post.
For those who don’t know, BNI is a professional networking organisations where members meet weekly for breakfast and help each other by finding new business for each other and making referrals. These are tracked and statistics are carefully kept for attendance, participation and the amount of business passed.

But it’s important to note the other benefits of BNI so I have written a list of 11 things people will get out of membership.
