Seven Things You Must Share On Your About Page

As a service-based business, your About page is the most important piece of copy you’ll ever write.

One look at your Google Analytics will show you that this is one of the most-visited pages on your website.

You Can't Read The Label From Inside The Jar: A Simple Way To Test Your Message

Take a look at your website homepage.

Does it really bottle your brilliance?

Bottle Your Brilliance. Get More Clients

The sad fact about designers, copywriters and creatives is that we’re not always that good at doing for ourselves what we do so well for our clients.

We’re especially guilty of neglecting our own websites. We procrastinate about improving them - for months or even years - then rush and bang something out that’s full of industry...

T'aint What You Do. It's The Way That You Do It.

Bottling your brilliance and differentiating your business isn’t just about what you do or why you do it. It’s also about HOW you do it.

The unique way that you work with clients can be one of your biggest selling points. But it’s also one of the trickiest things to articulate.

Often that’s because it boils down to a sense of...

Should You Niche Your Brand, Or Not?

In our experience, nobody really wants to pick a niche for their business or brand.

In fact, it’s a topic that seems to get people in a monumental flap.

As an aside, ‘niche’ is also a really weird word to say over and over again, as Anna discovers in the video above! It’s pretty odd to type too…

Whilst we...

Three Steps To KonMari Your Marketing Message

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed there’s an unlikely craze sweeping the nation, nay the world, at the moment.

Maybe it’s the time of year - January is a time when we all get that urge to usher out the old and start afresh, isn’t it? The temptation to tear it all down and start again can be...

Why You Need a Why Not, Not Just a Why

If there’s one tip I can people for differentiating your business, it’s this: don’t focus on your service first.

Your mission or ‘why’ is what people buy.

But the funny thing is, people also buy what you’re not, what you won’t do...

Biodigesters for Belgut - Meet Vincent, Our Kiva Entrepreneur for Summer

We’ve got a confession to make.

We’ve been hopelessly rubbish at taking the time to write about the wonderful people who we make ‘loans that change lives’ to via Kiva.

But we’ve slapped ourselves...

Walking A Marathon For Naomi House

Almost 11 years ago, my nephew Tom passed away at only 2 weeks old.

Naomi House was there to support his mum and dad through his last days, giving them space and peace to truly be with him.

Eight Questions To Uncover The Superpowers You Didn't Realise You Had

What do you take for granted, that you can do freakishly well?

One of my superpowers is reading ridiculously fast.

I’ve challenged myself to read 100 books this year and currently reading number 55 (Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology - so good).
