Could YOU Trade or Train YOUR Skills?

What skills do you feel you need most right now?

Do you need to learn them or could you buy or barter with someone else?

What skills could you offer?

I’m a firm believer that there is a wealth of talent amongst you, our regular visitors and followers and your networks. Some of which we’ve covered rather well, especially sales and marketing communications, others of which we haven’t really touched on much over the past five years, such as:

  • Business finance
  • Business accounting
  • Legal advice

The above immediately spring to mind as areas where many small businesses aren’t necessarily getting the best advice and help they could and deserve in these radically changing times: Could you help? Would you be prepared to contribute your thoughts and tips on a semi regular basis?

Sure, there are bound to be country legal and cultural differences to be aware of and top line prior knowledge of those would help a client wishing to venture into markets outside of their traditional sphere to make better informed decisions. Those of you who have an understanding of these, without giving away your core value, are in a unique position to help and demonstrate your credentials. Just have a think about it for a few minutes…

Then there is the whole exciting sphere of online skills:

  • Creating, maintaining and growing effective company blogs – blogs loved equally by potential customers and search engines
  • Growing an online following that converts followers to customers
  • Using continued interactive marketing techniques to grow customer value

We touch on these from time to time and have contributions from guest bloggers yet are now actively seeking our own resident contributors.

Think you might fit the bill or know somebody you’d recommend? Contact us direct or get them to get in touch!

Let us know!

"I was very impressed by Linda's determination to help and the constructive, but persistent, manner in which she identified issues and then tried to resolve them. After recent progress I was again reaching a stage where I seemed to be spinning my wheels, and she has given me fresh impetus to start moving forward again."
