Calling all hoarders!!

I'm new to this site and firstly would like to say 'hi' to all of you but secondly and most importantly for me, blatently plug my business.

I run a company called Effortless Auctioning whose main concern is to sell items via eBay for other people who are either too busy, can't be bothered, haven't got round to it as yet, aren't set up with all the right auction and payment accounts, have no confidence selling online or simply don't want to divulge information about themselves…

Royal Ascot Races - This Week, Are You Going?

Hi all, I just thought I'd see if any of you are going to Royal Ascot this week? I'm there on Wednesday and I'm looking forward to an afternoon/evening mixing with Ascot's finest!

For the purposes of this blog I will refer to the lithographic printing process, since this is the most common commercial system. However there are numerous other printing processes which will have issues that… Continue

Referral Marketing Systems

Most small businesses tell me that they win a significant amount of business from referral and yet very few have a system for doing so.

I think that this is a big mistake and I help my clients to win even more business from referral by introducing referral systems into their business.
