Wiltshire Business Club – Member Interview with Tim Coe

Share

In our monthly series of interviews with Wiltshire Business Club members I am looking forward to chatting with Tim Coe .

Tim is the author of ‘Your Utterly Seductive Proposal‘.

Every business wants more new clients followed by long-term happy clients. I’m sure you’re no different.

Business is about standing out , not blending in

Tim’s aims for his clients are simple – get more new clients and keep old clients happy. Standing-out and following-up are not new concepts, but who actually pays serious attention to these key areas? With eye-catching branding, promotions, wording, design and imagery that is discussable, unforgettable, distinctive and unique it’s easy to become the talk of the town [if you want to]. Tim Coe is author of ‘Your Utterly Seductive Proposal’ and will discuss all things marketing with me on Thursday evening …….

Minute doses of substances derived from minerals and from the animal and the plant kingdom are used to stimulate the healing process within the individual.

Make your Social Media Count with Lilach Bullock

Share

Lilach and I have known each other over 10 years and it was a pleasure to finally meet on Blab.

Over the course of an enjoyable informative chat Lilach shared some of the ways she Makes Social Media Count for her clients around the globe.

We were joined by Nicola Gaughan and an engaged audience

Thank you to everyone who watched live , enjoy the replay !!

Lilach says

If your social media isn’t adding to your business – adding profile, reach, leads, sales, then stop what you’re doing. Because, you’re doing it wrong.

Social media done right can open up those opportunities for you. Done wrong and it drains your time, energy and resources – and can be pretty stressy too..

Want to build connections, generate leads and sales with social media? Great! But, social media stinks, doesn’t it? Yep, it sure does – if you’ve tried it and not got the results you wanted, or you feel overwhelmed with where to start or how to get it all done.

I get rid of the overwhelm, the hassle, the time suck and the endless posting and tweeting with no results. Because. Results. Count. And, quite frankly, let’s not dress this up – that’s what you are interested in, isn’t it?

Now, let’s get one thing straight – I work with solo entrepreneurs, small and medium sized enterprises and charities which are doing fabulous work and want to make a difference in this world.

Helping aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world

Share

Mindy Gibbins-Klein and I have known each other over 10 years and she has helped many aspiring authors to publish their books.

Mindy is currently expanding her business by using Vmboom to fund raise (see https://www.vmbvoom.com/pitches/the-book-midwife )

We will be discussing the fundraising and how you can get your own book published

You can watch the replay on Youtube

Mindy says

2.87 billion people want to write a book, but 2.58 billion of them will never do it, without the guidance and support of The Book Midwife.
At The Book Midwife, we help aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world.

Most people who want to write a book never even start. They don’t know where to start or how to start. They have massive self-doubt about their ability to write a book, and they don’t know if their idea is any good. Some people start writing a book, but never get to the finish line. That self-doubt creeps in, they get lost or run out of ideas, or life just gets in the way.

Mike has recently returned from attending SMMW16 in San Diego and I am looking forward to chatting about Social Media for Bloggers

About Mike

I love to help small businesses and organizations that are interested in using the Internet more effectively. I provide a comprehensive set of consulting services, which include Social Media, Blogging, SEO and Internet marketing.

I provide my business clients with ongoing marketing advice and assistance. I can tell them exactly what they need to do, or just do it for them, depending on how involved they wish to be. These ongoing activities can include blogging, creating and updating social network profiles, interacting with followers and readers, and managing online advertising campaigns.

I will teach you how to leverage content to increase traffic to your website, generate leads, nurture leads through your sales cycle, and convert those leads into sales and customers.

I am the editor at The Social Media Hat (http://www.TheSocialMediaHat.com) where I regularly share articles discussing Social Media, SEO, Blogging, Internet Marketing and Business Technology.

I am also a HootSuite Certified Professional and educator, which means that if you’re using HootSuite to manage your social media accounts, or want to, I can help you learn how to use and configure the tool.

Mike and I first connected on the Empire.Kred social networking and business game site several years ago .

Since then I have enjoyed reading the articles published on the Social Media Hat and totally changed the way I use Hootsuite after reading The Unofficial Book on HootSuite .

I provide my business clients with ongoing marketing advice and assistance. I can tell them exactly what they need to do, or just do it for them, depending on how involved they wish to be.

Martin W Smith chats about Content Curation with Cendrine and Steven

Share

In an enthralling enjoyable conversation with Cendrine and me , Marty Smith gave an extensive overview of Content Curation

Marty covered best practice in Content creation and took us through the platforms .

Marty believes in building community and conversation using content and the power of story telling.

After our amazing chat with Kelly Hungerford in March , Cendrine and I are now looking forward to chatting with Martin W Smith of Curigami . Curagami works with e-commerce clients to develop creative apps to engage, involve and thrill customers.

 

Tuesday 26th April at 8:00 pm

 

WHAT BENEFITS HAS CURATION BROUGHT YOU?

Beyond the numbers, content curation creates connection and learning. I’ve learned more from Ana Cristina Pratas, Brian Yanish, Jan Gordon, Cendrine, Kelly Hungerford, Karen Dietz, Malek and others than attending expensive conferences, reading preaching white papers or listening to self-serving podcasts.

Being a member of the “curator community” is one of the biggest perks.

Curation is more of a journey than a destination for me. I read something every day I want to STOP THE WORLD and share (lol). I’m honestly all in all the time and that stance is important and why my tribe grows.

[This is a repost of a blog written in 2013 ] 3 minute Read [Via Readism]

Catchy title for a blog post, don’t you think ? It came to me whilst Angelika and I were ending our final training session in preparation for walking 15 miles of the Sarsen Trail between Avebury and Stonehenge in two weeks time.

It suddenly occurred to me that twelve months ago I could never have contemplated such a venture as walking 15 miles in a good cause.

Back then I smoked , drove everywhere and the farthest I went under my own steam was a four mile round trip by bike to the nearest village.Medal

So you may be asking – what has changed to make me a non smoker , two stone lighter and fitter than I have been in years.
The answer is simple .. I moved to Devizes to be with Angelika.

It all began with being introduced to Angelika’s allotment on the outskirts of town . At first I was simply the apprentice – painting the shed and mowing the grass .. this year I have played a more active part in preparing the beds making them ready for planting .

The walk and the work combined to make me trimmer , the reward of course was eating the fresh vegetables grown on the allotment.

That was only the beginning , Angelika has had a pedometer for years but last year discovered the Fitbit . Essentially this wifi linked device measures every step you take and records it . So good is it that I was treated to one at the beginning of this year. We have not looked back , there is friendly rivalry not only between the two of us but in an online community including Sally and Stuart. The great thing is that when the stats are published a different person is leading the table each time. I will let Sally tell the story of when she zoomed into the lead after 170 mile drive with her fitbit in her luggage measuring each step 🙂

When Angelika was writing her book ‘Wiltshire von A bis Z’ last year we toured the wonderful county of Wiltshire armed with our National Trust cards and boy did we do a lot of walking ! This year we have been given English Heritage membership , who knows where our walking boots will take us ?
Earlier this year Angelika won a competition and among the prizes was a years membership of the local gym. During the winter months we were able to work out 2 or 3 times per week.

And so it is that we are both in fine fettle and looking forward to the Sarsen Trail in two weeks time and we would welcome some encouragement if you would sponsor us.

Thank you Angelika .

Steven

The Sarsen Trail

It’s a fun-filled, fabulous fundraising day out for the family – a multi-terrain running, walking and mountain biking event, taking you through the Vale of Pewsey, the Avon Valley and then across the beautiful ancient landscape of Salisbury Plain between Avebury and Stonehenge.

UPDATE

And now to the present day , next Sunday will be our fourth Sarsen Trail together and will be the third time I am walking the full 26 miles . I am still so grateful to Angelika for making our lives together awesome .
