Marketing SOS - do you need help?Do you ever worry that your marketing efforts aren’t paying off?

Whether it’s the fear of where the next month’s business is going to come from and how to attract new customers, or you can’t figure out how to implement a new marketing strategy, many small business owners struggle with their marketing.

I know I’ve said it before, but as a small business owner it can be tough trying to fulfil every role and function required of you (I know that only too well myself!). Equally, the cost of outsourcing your marketing – no matter how cost effective it can be – may not always be an option.

So what do you do when you need to take a DIY approach to marketing but have a burning question that needs an answer?

I don’t like to promote my own services within this forum – after all, my blog is all about providing free advice and sharing knowledge – but I’m also conscious that I can’t always answer specific questions in this format. So I’ve launched a new service called The Marketing Helpdesk to plug that much needed gap for small businesses.

The Marketing Helpdesk provides an affordable one-to-one session on the phone or via Skype. You can pick my brains for up to 45 minutes and we’ll cover whatever marketing issue you want to deal with in that time. From talking you through (or showing you on Skype with screen sharing) how to set up an email campaign in Mail Chimp or getting to grips with Twitter or Hootsuite, to whether you should do a door drop or promo flyer, this service is designed to help you and your business – specific advice tailored to your needs. Not generic answers which with the best intentions a blog can only provide.

Interested? Let me know what you’d like to discuss and when and we can set up a session!
