There's more to the perfect employee than their ability to do the job

Whilst the likes of Richard Branson (Virgin) and Sheryl Sandburg (Facebook) operate in a different universe from small business owners, the issue of making sure you take on the right person for the job remains the same whether you run a multinational conglomerate out of Necker or run a two person business from Dorking.

It may be less damaging to make a poor…

The Importance of Being an Earnest Connector

The Importance of Being an Earnest Connector

It’s about WHO you know

Firstly, you need to know who you need to know! Are you networking and randomly collecting contact details from everyone? Building a network this way is very time consuming and not very effective. Before you even step into an event know who you are looking for. Once you know who you need in your network start building your…

Strategic SEO guide for automotive websites

SEO marketing is critical, not just for car dealerships, but for any website. To achieve good results from SEO it’s important that you have a clear understanding of why you want to do SEO and what you want to get out of it. Without such insight and the right plan, it will be difficult to hit the nail on the head and, ultimately, it can waste a lot…

Goodbye, keyword SEO: Google moves entirely to Secure Search

Thanks to new NiS Member Qamar Rehman for alerting me to the latest 'shock horror' episode in the Google SEO saga... Here's an article from the Search Engine Watch website (and I'm sure Qamar will be happy to enlighten you further :0)

"The day many SEO professionals hoped would never come, but feared eventually would, apparently has arrived today. It appears that Google has cut off keyword data altogether.

Base Rate to rise in Spring 2015

Base rate is likely to rise next spring, Monetary Policy Committee member Martin Weale said today.

Speaking to Sky News Weale said once base rate rises, further increases will be gradual.

He says: “I think it is very helpful that we try and explain the most likely path for interest rates that the first rise will come perhaps in the spring of next year, and then the path is likely to be relatively…

The importance of good corporate branding

Without reviewing his image, would this guy be the success he is today? Before you pay per click or optimise your search engine,is it time you reviewed yours? 

It’s not just about a logo design! Good branding and development should incorporate typographic and colour continuity, consistency of copy and quality of photography across all marketing material. Because in this competitive and image conscious world, your company’s appearance will ultimately…

“They’ve advertised my job!”

I recently received a call from an individual needing some advice about his employment situation. He had seen his own job advertised, which had alarmed him, so he’d gone to talk to the MD. He was told that the company was restructuring to save money and three existing roles were going to be combined into two. This would normally be a redundancy situation but the company wasn’t minded to go through a proper selection process – they were just planning to replace…

Security, Burglaries - its that time of the year!!

With recent government showing that 80% of the population who reside in our cities and towns have a real  fear of their home being vulnerable to crime.

So wouldn’t it makes sense to take “sensible precautions” to ensure that not only is your property safe but also your family, and that you have the added security of “peace of mind” as well with the help of a Burglar…

Have you ever complained about your Holiday?

We save up for months, sometimes years, to go on holiday for a week or even two, so what do we do if the accommodation or location don’t live up to expectations................?

Whether staying in the UK in a B&B accommodation to a Luxury Cruise, I think we all look forward to our time with family and friends and having a relaxing or even crazy time.

But what if…
