Tips on Tuesday

We’re back on a very scorching Tuesday to take some of the heat off you in terms of your social media posts!

We strongly advocate having a social media schedule, we think its important, especially for a small business with a limited budget, to use marketing time wisely and to know what will be posted and when.

However, don’t be afraid of spontaneity and creativity.   If something is unfolding on social media don’t be afraid to participate, make use of it, tap into trending topics.

It is important to keep a sense of relevance to your own personal brand – but taking a chance here and there with your social media presence might just reap very good rewards.

 

Women on Wednesday

To say we had spent a long time trying to think of a clever alliterative title to match our Tips on Tuesday slot would be an understatement.  Especially when we had overlooked the perfect “Women on Wednesday”.

Today was the very first meeting of the West Yorkshire Ladies Mean Business group – you can find us all on here.  A big thank you firstly to Rebecca and Emma for arranging the event and to Myrtle Perk in Bingley for accommodating us.

Today we met with several inspirational business women who for many reasons have changed their direction and their careers and started up their own businesses.  We really enjoyed the event – why not take a few moments to have a look and see who we met: –

Rebecca – who runs a Forever Living franchise.  Find out more about her and her story here. Rebecca is also the brains and power behing the West Yorkshire Ladies Mean Business group.

Julie – who decided enough was enough in her previous career – but then needed something to excite and fill up her time.  She is a Party Lite consultant – have a look at what she can offer.  Incidentally Julie offers the most innovative – and best smelling – business cards we have received to date, in a perfect little package with two lovely candles.

Sadie runs her own photography business, Peppermint Creative,  doing shoots from boudoir to babies, weddings to portraits and everything in between.  Have a look at some of her stunning photos.

Michelle had the wealth of experience we were all there to hear about having run a family business, Pink Pineapple, for over 20 years.  With products from greetings cards to bunting to homewares and gifts, there’s pretty much something for everyone at Pink Pineapple!

Nicola at Barking Mad , which we think is a fabulous and memorable name, who runs lovely home from home boarding for dogs.  What better way to relax on holiday than knowing your beloved pet is having a holiday too?!

Jan was representing Liberties & Co, a local nail, hair and beauty salon which she runs with her daughter.  Having heard about the wealth of treatments they offer, and the beautiful premises they operate from, we will be booking a treatment or two soon.  Why not see what they offer?

Melissa – runs a fabulous shop called Little Annie-Bets making stunning and unique accessories.  And there’s glitter.  Lots and lots of glitter.

Samantha has just started her own cupcake business and makes delightful and delicious looking treats which you can see here In a twist we really like, Samantha also runs Cupcake Cottage which does baking lessons for small groups.

Emma runs her own virtual assistant business.  As she rightly said, all her clients come to her via word of mouth, but we understand she will have a website up and running very soon.  If anyone would be interested in talking to Emma, please do let us know and we will put you in touch with her.

As you can see, we have a wealth of very talented ladies in such a small locality.  All I can say is that it seems like West Yorkshire ladies really do mean business!
