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.
There's More To Libraries Than You Might Think!
41 days ago
Today, the Monday Club started their working week with an informative talk from Jill Barker and Caroline Strudwick from Gloucestershire Libraries.
Goodness, Libraries are not what they used to be! So many services for every age and interest. From toddlers singing sessions to poetry classes, coding classes and a multitude of other activities.
It was great to hear the Gloucestershire Libraries receive 2 million (yes 2 million!!) visits per year. Quite an achievement for sure. It’s good to know this service is in good hands
As businesses, it was also good to hear that the Growth Hub tier 3’s has started rolling out across the county using Libraries as their base points. That’s a total of 31 tier 3’s across Gloucestershire. Great news, especially for those starting out in business and need a little help.

We recently received an email from TWOGS asking about whether or not they should continue. We emphatically said YES as we think it is a great service! We as a business have personally benefited from this website. Being a small, local, independent company ourselves we understand and appreciate the difficulties there are with running a small business. We want to champion firms like yourselves and would like to support you in anyway that we can!
We trust there are other businesses in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire who value what you do. Keep up the good work!
Business Planning - Final Talk
2 months ago
Andrew Callard, of Aimed Business, ended his tour of the three CAP business clubs last night at Tuesday Club. Andrew’s talk, titled ‘Are You One of The 1 in 4 Businesses With a Plan? And Does it Matter?’ once again seemed to resonate with the members.
As mentioned in a previous mail, the statistics speak for themselves. There are always exceptions to the rule, but generally speaking if you do not have a plan your chances of success are reduced by a considerable amount.
Thanks again Andrew, I have been lucky to have heard this talk three times, so have no excuses!
