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.

Another very useful meeting for the CAP Tuesday Club members last night. Patrick Field from Forest Phoenix Accountancy lead an ‘around the table’ discussion on….yes you guessed it, Accountancy! Such an important part of our businesses, yet one many of us prefer to ignore.
Patrick expertly answered many question from members, not only explaining how, but also why. Once you understand the why, it encourages business owners to implement good accountancy systems and monitor them regularly.
I believe many of the Tuesday club members took a whole heap of useful information home last night thanks to Patrick.
Every day’s a school day!!
Blog Challenge Day 1
3 days ago
Today is an interesting day for Twitter as they need to consider at their AGM whether they should change themselves from a publicly quoted company into a co-operative.
Reputable research shows that 2M UK Twitter users want the company prepare a report on how it could be done. Whether this will be the end of over-hyped numbers on social media, we will see. To read more check out the TWOGs blog twogs.co.uk/blog/will-twitter-coopera...
It is also the start of a big week for me as Alison has challenged me to write a blog a day on things social media-wise rather than wittering on about them privately. Good job I've been on the Blog Slog and How to Beat It course next running in Ross on 25th July to make this challenge manageable!
Introducing Socially Inspired Selling
7 days ago
Today the CAP Thursday Club received a valuable presentation from Andrew Callard titled ‘Introducing Socially Inspired Selling’. A thought provoking lesson on how best to use social media to engage with potential clients.
One thing that stood out for me was the line ‘Social Selling is a Process’. Get the process right and you’re on the road building a long term and successful relationship, get it wrong and you may potentially create obstacles for the future.
It is estimated that 70% of sales are based around good relationships, so if your marketing involves social media (and let’s face it that’s most of us), then would it not be wise to get it right?
Thanks again Andrew, most appreciated.
