  You won't believe what they found when they opened this old box! In the bottom of an old cellar, in a house which had been boarded up for years, the authorities found this old box hidden amongst a pile of old clothes in the corner of the room. They put it in a bag to look at later on along with the clothes and some other items. It was the next day, when they examined the items in the bag and one of them took out this small box. Although it was quite old, it was in

The Value of Virtual Assistants

Keeping in touch with the VA. A lot of businesses, particularly smaller businesses, make use of virtual assistants (or VAs) in order to complete lots of everyday tasks which need to be done. For those who don't know, a VA is somebody who does not work in the office with the other employees (and is often not even based in the same country) but who works the same hours and who is usually available to contact over Skype or other forms of communication. There are pros and cons to using

Skype for Business

Skype One thing which small businesses may suffer with is finding staff and having a place for them all to work. When you've only got a very small budget, paying the salary of any employees and office space could be significantly draining. To avoid having to spend a lot of money on a place to work, something which you might like to consider is using Skype as the main means to communicte with your employees.   The internet age is wonderful because not only does it provide

Back to University Promotions

By Adam  |  5 Oct 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

 A poor student looking online for deals. In the run up to September, businesses are all thinking of "Back to School" sales and how they can make their products things which parents will need to buy their children before they go back to school after the summer holidays, but not quite enough fuss is made over university students starting their term in late September/early October. If you sell anything which university students may find useful, this is definitely something

Redirecting Domains

By Adam  |  3 Oct 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

"Just bought a real corker." Several months ago I wrote a blog post about the value of purchasing additional domains to help boost the rankings of your eCommerce website: you can read it here. In today's blog post I would like to go over some of the other ways that purchasing domains and setting up redirects can be useful to you site. Of course, it might well be worth reading the earlier blog post first and keeping in mind that this is something of an advanced strategy and

Using Humour in Marketing

By Adam  |  30 Sep 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

See that grin? I made it happen. When you are marketing your eCommerce business, do you ever use humour? You may think that as a business owner, you have to keep things very serious and professional all the time for people to treat you like a legitimate organisation and be interested in buying from you. But the truth is that there is room in professionalism for you to be lighthearted and to have a laugh - in fact it could actually be a great benefit to your marketing

Two Part Blog Posts

By Adam  |  29 Sep 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

A 19th Century Blog Post You may have noticed that my recent blog post “Things to Know Before You Hire Staff” was split over two posts. The reason for this is that I was just writing a single post, but then I found that I had quite a lot to say, so I thought that it would be better suited to stretch out across two separate posts. This is quite a useful thing to do every now and again as it can help you to have a larger amount of content.   Longer vs. Shorter Pieces

By Adam  |  27 Sep 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Just updated. As you may have seen in one of our recent blog posts, we predicted that there was going to be an update to Google's algorithm and now it has happened. The Google Penguin update is big news for anybody who has a website which they make money from (which includes all of you) and so you need to know just what this change might mean for you and your business.   What Google's algorithm does is determine the order that websites come up for different search

How Could EKMPowershop Stop Their Decline?

By Simon  |  27 Sep 2016 09:00:00  |  Full article...

It's really interesting watching the path of companies that operate on the Internet. Many of them gain customers quickly, reach a peak and then begin the long wedge of doom (WOD), which can take many years. Others plateau when their system is still very popular, but their market is saturated. EKM Powershop seems to have had a more dramatic decline which is worrying for anyone using or thinking of using their system. Interest in their system is now back to the levels seen in
