Welcome to better business with TWOGs
Twogs is a new business platform designed by seasoned business people to enable time-strapped businesses to develop profitable relationships in ways that are easy and meaningful through a stable social media. If you like us are tired of the:
Pub of Facebook? Turning up to hopefully see some friends, but discovering that because your business hasn’t paid to boost or your business friends haven’t comment on your posts recently that they’re no longer there.
Rave of Twitter? Shouted snippets of conversations lost in the sheer volume of tweets and pace they are delivered by what seems like the whole world speed networking.
Gentlemen's club of Linkedin? With its rules that ensure it’s a primarily a professional tool, which has never lost the recruiting angle and where groups build and decline as they become abused by social sellers.
What is TWOGs?
TWOGs is a digital platform for businesses to build relationships without the pub of Facebook, the rave of Twitter and the gentleman’s club of LinkedIn. TWOGs are 70-140 words posted in chosen categories as a way to promote, form business relationships and build your business and ultimately increase your sales.
You can read other TWOGs comment and rate. Start a conversation or join in on one. Create groups of collaborative businesses. Networking clubs promote your club, allow your members to carry on the conversation.
TWOGs are sorted into business categories. The TWOGs are a showcase of expertise, thought, personality or maybe latest offer. There is a live feed of TWOGs with the most recent at the top and the opportunity to select useful reading categories.
The TWOG is a practical tool to get your business message heard locally, regionally and nationally.
The TWOG is for small businesses who are time-poor or with limited experience or budget for marketing, but understand that business success is based on relationships. Businesses who want to see a return on sales revenue in 3 to 6 months based on the reputation and trust that they have created.

Last night at CAP Tuesday Club we held 3 x 10 minute one2one’s instead of the usual presentation or around the table discussions.
This is such a great format for getting to know your fellow networkers better, and It would seem, judging by the noise in the room and the sheer fact no-one was ready to change over after ten minutes that this was a popular and useful exercise.
In fact, when put to the room afterwards, it was unanimously agreed to hold more in the future.
We get so much information by simply chatting to each other, and ten minutes if often not enough. My advice would be to extend these short chats, by meeting up outside of club time. You never know where it might lead!
The Best Way to Start Your Working Week!
3 days ago
Huge thanks to Jacqui Lewis-Everley from ilateral for an informative talk on how to get the most from your website, and equally important, what not to do!
Jacqui touched on subjects such as email, hosting, domain names as well as a host of other useful tips, especially regarding SEO.
The stand out learning curve for me personally was the difference between apps and web apps, and I must admit, the price difference was an eye opener. Jacqui’s expert advice on apps in general was to think about what you want the app to achieve before going ahead. It’s great to have an app, but an effective plan to get the desired effect is essential.
So, once again the Monday Club was the best way to start your working week! Thanks Jacqui, most appreciated as always

Are you one of the 1 in 4 businesses that has a plan? And does it matter?
This was the title of Andrew Callard’s talk today at CAP Thursday Club, and was received with appreciation (and some realisation) from the members.
The shocking figures of 60 – 80% of businesses fail in the first year, 90% in the first five years, and their relationship with planning says it all.
Andrew, a business mentor himself (Aimed Business) has a huge reputation within the CAP Community, so his help and advice today was most appreciated.
Thank you Andrew, many of today’s attendees will be re-thinking a few strategies for their business planning in the future.
