New year, new you?

It’s a phrase we’re hearing everywhere as we head into a new year, but are you asking yourself: ‘What’s wrong with the old me?’

Probably nothing! You might be the best at what you do, have an incredible team that love going to work and are seeing your business go from strength to strength – and if so, congratulations! But do other people know?

If you want to make one resolution in 2019, make it shouting about your success. And it’s funny, we have just a few ideas on how you can do just that…

Get socialising

Getting through your to-do list is often more than a full-time job, so the thought of taking time out to chat to people can be a horrifying one – but don’t let it be!

Networking doesn’t have to involve lots of handshaking and small talk – we’re working with Exclusive Business to bring a new concept in networking to the Tees Valley.

These monthly events are a fantastic way to mingle with senior business people – and business owners – from across the area in a relaxed, lunchtime environment.

You’ll come away having had some wonderful conversations, amazing insight into different businesses and on the road to beginning lasting business relationships (oh and most importantly, some delicious food!)

Find out about the next Tees Valley event here.

Be social without leaving the office

Shouting about your success doesn’t have to be face to face; the wonder of social media means that your customers, competitors, target market, or anyone else who may see your content can understand your business and its success.

By taking as little as 15 minutes out of your day to follow your customers on Twitter, post your latest results on LinkedIn or show off new stock on Instagram, you are keeping your message, your business and your success alive.

Read all about it! Well, write all about it.

Why keep your good news to yourself?! If you’ve had a record-breaking year, employed the best in the business or secured a contract that can change the future of your business – make sure you get it in the press!

A press release can spread your news to outlets in your geographical area/s and/or within your industry in one fell swoop and the coverage can get you are noticed by a variety of readers.

It’s something so simple, yet so effective.

Show off

You know your business, you know your industry, so why don’t your website readers know that?

Keeping your website up to date is crucial to making sure visitors can trust your expertise – so don’t neglect that ‘blog’ section on your website. And remember, these can be anything you want them to be, from the top five bathroom products for 2019 to how Brexit (sorry, we went there) will affect the curtain industry!

Businesses often have a bad habit of keeping good news to themselves to prevent sounding too arrogant. We’re not about that life.

If you’ve done well, you need to be telling people – so let us help you do just that.
