Business Ideas Network is for small/medium business owners that don't have the time or money to advertise or promote themselves.
We will get together and share no-cost and low cost ways to bring your business out of the shadows and into the limelight. You and I both know that promotion = sales = cash in your pocket!
This can include online methods such as advertising on Facebook, Twitter and email. Plus off-line methods such as writing to your customers via an old-fashioned letter, vouchers, SMS texting, radio promotion or talking to the local papers.
There will also be practical advice such as how to safely look after all your passwords online, how to create a home computer loaded with great software at zero-cost, create your own website, or how to easily sell products on ebay and amazon.
Each meeting can bring together different stories of the methods you have used in the past that have been successful and figuring out ways you can help promote other non-competing businesses, such as a cheese shop and a wine shop.
Any business is welcome, from shop owners to freelance hairdressers, accountants to car-wash companies, wedding-dress makers to photographers - there is no restriction at all. If you own a business and need ways to improve sales, this is definitely for you.
First meeting is free, and contributions towards running costs will be expected, depending on the type of room and number of people etc.
Meetings are £5 per event to cover room and printing costs.
