Why should you keep marketing your business even when you are busy?          

As a marketing agency it is frustrating when we come across a potential client, that we know we can help, but are told ‘we are so busy, business is great we don’t need to do any marketing!’

It is often hard for business owners to see the value of ongoing marketing when the sales are coming in. So, to try and explain why you should keep marketing your business, even when you are busy we have put together this blog post.

How to remember names during networking events   Networking can make people feel uncomfortable but there are so many tricks you can learn to make the process easier.                        In fact Lara does some great networking training which has done a lot to settle my butterflies but one of my weaknesses is remembering people’s names. With that in mind I thought I would share some of the tips I have found on how to remember names during networking events.
