How can social media marketing help your business? What’s the point?” you may ask yourself. If you’re not marketing your business on social media you’re making a big mistake.
Well here is an article that explains 18 very good reasons why you absolutely should be using it to market your business.
You must connect with your audience to gain their trust so that they feel comfortable in buying from you or using your services. Once you have that trust and a regular conversation going that’s when you will get loyalty.
We have many long standing clients who have been with us since 2005. Through consistency and regular communication they have remained loyal for 13 years! There’s a lot to be said for that. Check out some of their feedback here and see for yourself.
Let us help you with social media marketing to get the best from your small business so you can focus on building it.
Small Businesses – are you missing potential clients? If you’re busy on the road, in meetings, or otherwise unable to answer calls and enquiries then my guess is you probably are!
I would imagine as a SME you don’t have the budget to employ full time or even part time staff and although a temp is a ‘temp’ting idea, it’s still not cost effective as you have to pay for their time even if they’re sitting twiddling their thumbs. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a virtual temp?
That is someone who can be your virtual receptionist or virtual assistant and deal with all those enquiries remotely and all you have to do is pay for the time they actually spend on your business, or better still a quarterly fee that includes so many calls per month? The latter is good if you only get a few and need simple message forwarding.
If you need a more involved assistant then an hourly rate is best and you only pay for their time, not the whole day! A virtual assistant can take your calls and deal with any email enquiries or social media enquiries which seems to be the way a lot of people get in touch these days – especially if you deal with the general public.

SMEs – what does your shop front say about you? Most start ups and SMEs will start working from home and while this is all well and good for cost savings, using your home address is not always practical.
For instance a client wishes to come and see you, but you work in your bedroom and your house is tiny or your children and pets are at home making a noise. You don’t really want to have visitors to you home.
While you would just go a meet your client outside or hire a meeting room, you still have to advertise your home address. You may not want customers just turning up unannounced or even knowing where you live.
If you live in an area that doesn’t reflect your business image wouldn’t it be better to have a prestigious London address on your website or headed paper? First impressions count whether you like it or not.
For the rest of December we are waiving our £50 deposit on our London registered office or virtual office business address in the Royal Borough of Chelsea and Kensington.
Small Business Owners are you giving value to your customers by given them your full attention? Do you feel like a ‘Jack of All Trades, Master of None’!
You may have a few good customers but need a few more to make your business viable. However, because you’re so busy with the day to day stuff, such as accounting, chasing suppliers, processing orders, social media marketing and the day to day running of the office you fall short on customer service. This in turn affects your credibility and reputation.
Maybe you have already received a few complaints but not because you don’t want to offer a good service, but because you’re simply too busy and not focused on your clients’ needs. You can’t afford to employ staff and have little other resources so what do you do?
This is where a Virtual Assistant comes in and can add value to your business by taking the pressure off you without breaking your bank balance by freeing up your time so you can do what you do best.
Managing your new small business is tough enough so why not get the help you need to free up your time and save on staff costs by utlising a virtual PA. A Virtual Assistant can help with most back office tasks such as social media, administration, call answering, data entry. Save costs on hiring staff by using a VPA.
Also, it’s never a good idea to use your home address for business, instead try a virtual office address. You can choose from 2 prestigious addresses in London. Why not enhance that by getting an answering service to take those calls when you’re too busy.
