With the majority of businesses in the North East now working remotely – we’ve joined forces with Digital Allies to look at tips to help you run your business from your phone.

Here’s why we think you should consider joining the world’s biggest professional network. LinkedIn is the world’s leading professional social network, figures released in June 2019 stated that there were more than 650m members on the platform. As a result, its influence on the business world cannot be ignored. It remains one of the best places online to connect with likeminded business people and share updates about your professional achievements.

PR and Social Media are both critical components of the marketing plan of all small businesses. They are both looking for independent people to make comments about your business, and as a result, help you to increase sales.

Marketing can be one of the first things companies strike off when they’re just getting started or facing financial struggles. We don’t think that’s necessarily right - if you need new customers you need to be promoting your organisation to those very people. Marketing is the way you do that.

Have you been working tirelessly in the kitchen for months perfecting that recipe that’s going to make your fortune? You know, the one that’s full of goodness, is nutritionally balanced and perfect for everyone? Maybe it’s the next vegetarian or vegan delight that’s going to take the audience by storm.
