This workshop will be packed full of practical advice! Here's the running order of the day:

Marketing: To achieve growth, a business needs to promote itself effectively, but many don’t realise that you don’t need a big marketing budget to do that. Email marketing and social media provide small business owners with a great, low-cost, way to get new customers and keep them. Constant Contact will help attendees unlock the secrets they need to know to make these powerful tools work for them.

People: A growing business may well need to find some temporary help for larger projects and contracts. They may also have some regular tasks that need to be done. Hiring a freelancer could be the solution and Elance will help attendees understand what that means for their business.

Money: Understanding the financial position of your business is crucial to
success. It’s such an important part of running a business but also
possibly the scariest. With so many regulations, money-management can
be a minefield. FreeAgent will tell attendees what they need to know to
make sure their business doesn’t get caught out, whilst keeping the cash
coming in and achieving growth.

Lunch: In your most strategic lunch ever, it will be time to eat, drink and network with other business owners, sharing ideas, contacts and enthusiasm. Advantage Business Partnerships will be running an interactive business growth strategy workshop with a personalised analysis on how to recognise your true business strengths, whilst prioritising your top business growth opportunities, which you can take away from the event to implement in your business immediately for increased profits and a better work-life balance.

Payments: The life blood of any growing business is cash. PayPal will explain to attendees how giving their customers different options for paying them and by having the right payment methods in place, a business can maximize their chances of keeping their cash flow healthy.

Service: As a business grows, resources can become a big issue. There comes a time when it becomes increasingly difficult to keep up with incoming calls and enquiries while fulfilling increasing numbers of orders and new contracts. Penelope will show attendees how to maintain a professional appearance and effectively handle increased activity.

Local Support: Digital Cardiff When a business is looking to grow, it is important to have good knowledge of business support available on a local level. From financial schemes to networking events and mentoring programmes, the local support organisation representative will give an overview of what is available for attendees.

So, free up some of your time by spending a little of it with us. We’ll show
you how you can make the best use of virtual teams and tools to give your
business a boost.
