I’ve Been Marketing!!

Ray Stewart Marketing Leave a Comment

Hi there.

I am sorry not to have posted to my blog for exactly one month but I have been doing what I am constantly urging all business owners to do – concentrating on Marketing.

I have been preparing my first advert in a whole year about my new outsourcing service, along with the report that goes with it (download here if you are interested to read it!), researching lots of other services that could be integrated into the business, and learning even more about marketing from the experts I have had personal contact with and have come to trust.

The result of the last month is nothing short of phenomenal and the spin offs will be visible all over the place over the next few months.

Please contact me if you would like details of the marketing stuff I have been studying.  I have no hesitation in recommending it.

It does constantly baffle me why business owners are scared to put their hand up and say “Yes – I would love some help with marketing”.  Many businesses I come across are only shadows of the enterprises they could become if their owner invested time in learning marketing methods that actually work. 

I try to show the people I come across ways I have learned to use marketing as an effective tool, but there is generally some resistance.  People have their own way of doing things and are exceptionally reluctant to change, for example, the way they write adverts for the press and directories such as Yellow Pages – even when faced with overwhelming evidence that they could do so much better without spending a single penny more.

So, rather than upset those unwilling to listen, I am going to lead by example and give all the doubters real proof – by demonstration.

Watch this space!!

I am a qualified Certified Practising Accountant having passed my final exams way back in 1981. I actually can’t believe that was 37 years ago!! Anyway, I am now in my 60’s and I have been running my own business since May 1983. And before you ask, no, I have never regretted a moment of it! Part of the membership requirements of my professional body now dictate that I spend quite a lot of time on “CPD” - continuing professional education (one of their better ideas) - and over the last two years I decided to study business growth and marketing. I have learnt such a lot and that knowledge has radically changed my old “accountants” approach to business. It has made such a difference to the way I work and operate I feel that I just have to pass on this knowledge. It is simply too powerful to hold back!! - but I will try and do it in simple terms rather than expecting you to spend hours, as I had to, working through the difficult language that trainers seem to use to pass on their concepts. I hope you find the blog a useful resource and interesting place to visit as the months pass. I will do my best to keep up the flow - but if there are any topics you would like me to cover, then please let me know. Ray Stewart
