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.
Drums and Trumpets
3 days ago
Drum roll please…. some good news to share with you all. I have been selected as a finalist for the annual prestigious Fine Art Guild Industry Framing Challenge Award 2017. Feeling pleased and proud to of made it this far. So I thought I would blow my “trumpet” so to speak.. not just about that (it is true!) but about my framing service. I am not used to doing it, as people who know me will attest to, it makes me feel uncomfortable and exposed, how many of you feel this way to? The Framing Challenge has also been a personnel one - to make me blow my trumpet loudly so people hear what I do – 1000% bespoke, accredited, creative framing – THE DIFFERENCE REALLY IS IN THE DETAIL https://www.facebook.com/fellowsframing/photos/a.255413604644114.1073741828.228445484007593/827448030773999/?type=3
Promotional Strategies (Part 2)
3 days ago
It was the CAP Thursday Clubs turn to discuss promotional strategies today. Another lively debate with plenty of useful information and advice at hand.
The talk was to consist of a 'top ten' strategies, however on this occasion we only managed the first two. The remainder will follow soon, but it goes to show how much input members actually put in.
For me, its much clearer now that a well planned execution is not the only important factor involved, but also the followup. And of course, consider how you measure success before you start, then you can determine whether the campaign has been successful.
Fairer Trade (Part 3)
10 days ago
Karin Whitaker from Karosa Jewellery ended her CAP tour today at Thursday Club. Karin’s presentation titled ‘Fairer Trade – Positive for People, Planet and Profit’ was once again received well by the members.
This time it got me thinking about the Forest towns and the possibility of becoming ‘Fairer Trade’ towns, therefore offering a USP to locals and visitors alike. Probably one heck of a long shot due to the complexity of the subject, but I did put Karin in touch with someone who would be interested in a chat regarding this subject who shares the same passion.
Anyway, thanks again Karin, as stated before, it was quite an eye opener.
