Make sure the joke's not on you if you share a social media funny


Who’s there?


Annette who?

Annette Curtain.


We will shortly share how that appalling piece of schoolboy humour nearly wrecked a beautiful working relationship, and by doing so we hope to demonstrate the thin line we tread when it comes to humour in business and in particular in social media.

We’re not saying…

Are you 'Google Fit'?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could not only be on the first page on Google, but you could be all over it?  For example, you could be in positions 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9.

What would this be worth to you?  Only you know that answer to that!  The truth is that you could do this in your niche.  If you knew how.

One of the keys is understanding that Google registers…

Windows XP support warnings – what happens now?

It’s a scary prospect when someone says they’re going to withdraw support for a product you have bought – and have been loyal to since its launch.

It’s even scarier when that product is one that you trust implicitly and yet one which you don’t fully understand.

So where does that leave you with Windows XP?

Chances are you have it on your laptop or PC and –…

Four reasons why it’s time to discard your old computer system

Do you have time to put the kettle on, watch it boil, brew your tea and then dunk a couple of ginger nuts while your system boots up in the morning?

Or do your office PC fans go into overdrive every time you ask them to do something?

We sense the nod of the head, a rolling of the eyes and a muttered ‘tell me about it’ coming in our direction at this…

How you risk writing off £1.5k – without warning

The 2014 floods in Britain cost businesses £831m.  The Federation of Small Businesses says that the average cost to each business in flood-hit areas was £1,531.

Behind those stark figures — which are bad enough on their own — lies a grimmer picture. One of business men and women who have spent years building up their clientele and customer base seeing everything they’ve…

It’s not the hackers you should worry about, it’s your own systems and staff

When a business says ‘Our system has been hacked’ what image flashes into your mind?

Do you imagine a geeky figure hunched over a laptop in a dimly lit room, rubbing his hands together and laughing in an evil tone?

And do you worry that there could be thousands of individuals just like him or her who – at this very moment – could be tapping keys in an attempt to…

The best Football Marketing e-mail Ever

Do you remember when England lost to Portugal in the European Championship?

Well, the following morning I got an email and it read:

"Shock news!  Six Portugal players have been found taking illegal banned substances and England are to be re-instated into European Championships".

It then said "scroll down for further details".

I scrolled down and it said….

Great strategy – why don’t your staff buy into it?

A client of mine hired me because his staff weren't performing up to his expectations.

He’s a smart cookie and has been running a modestly successful business for many years.

He’d read The E-Myth and implemented strong processes.

His strategy was well thought-out and he’d taken all his staff out of the office for a day to present it.

He had implemented Investors in People.

But…productivity was low, staff attrition was high and errors were rife.  My client…

How to make sure you never get another sponsor to back your event!

‘We would also like to say a big thank you to our sponsors, of whom there are too many to list!’

We cringed when we saw that sentence at the end of a report posted by a business after they had staged a charity fundraiser.

No, no, no, no … and NO again.

What an amazing opportunity missed – and how cheesed off will all those sponsors…
