Marketing for entrepreneurs: start here

Many entrepreneurs that I speak to tell me they know they need to market their business, but they just don't have the time, or they don't know where to start. While I understand that marketing can seem intimidating, it presents huge opportunities for business growth. My advice is not to dive right into complex marketing campaigns, but to begin with these three marketing must-dos, which will start you off on the right track, without breaking the bank.

How to grow an audience and influence them

Creating an online profile is easy, but cultivating a trusted online presence is hard work. It is not as simple as creating a blog and hoping someone will read it, or signing up to Twitter and gaining a few followers. If you - whether an individual or brand - want to build a successful influencer profile you need to create and share messages, pictures or content that appeals to people. This can be via your Twitter handle, Facebook wall, Instagram profile or blog.

Celebrating 20 years of living in Levi's locally

Radio rocks more than ever
Radio rocks more than ever

Much like Mark Twain's death, rumours of radio's demise have been much exaggerated. In fact, the reality is that despite the fragmentation of the existing medium, and the growth of new media in other areas - and possibly even as a direct result of both of these - radio rocks more than ever.

Why not to ignore your personal brand
Why not to ignore your personal brand

Brand consistency, in the long term, ensures consistent business and career growth. Very often business owners steer clear of focusing on their personal brand, as they do not like the spotlight.

The future of television
The future of television

Snake oil or genius?

I recently spoke to the Association of Dietetics South Africa on dealing with the media - a hot topic for them these days with all the controversy around Banting and the LCHF diet... And of course, dare I say it, Professor Tim Noakes...
