Today was one of those really use your brain type day. Why? Because it’s a (one of several) social media scheduling day!
What’s that then? Well, we have probably 30 SM clients and a large chunk of those involve scheduling posts/sharing content/creating engagement for their businesses.
Sounds complicated? It’s not really, it’s learning to understand as much as possible the individual businesses and work out how best to promote together with keeping the content fresh and interesting so people want to read, engage and ultimately buy!
The hardest part is switching between the varying companies – today we waxed lyrical about structural carpentry in Essex followed by a south coast cafe (not a huge amount in common other than they both have to eat). After a blog and SM for a local decorating company we moved onto a boutique hotel in Ely closely followed by a Sussex based care agency. It’s so rewarding to see our clients grow.
Talking about growth….. In very very exciting news we are delighted to announce we have added to our Gab team and have a wonderful lady joining us on Monday – best she has her thinking head on!!!!!
Websites & football, not quite as exciting as beer and football but then this is meant to be a work (ish) blog.
With so much going on, both personally and professionally, we have been somewhat lax in updating the Gab.
So what’s been happening? Well, three new sites have been completed – A D Hicks – carpenters in Essex have a fresh new look as do Mewsbrook Park Cafe with their great Park Life video as the centre piece and K and J Catering completes the trio. All three clients are delighted.
Plenty of social media and SEO work going on including a new client based in Ely, Cambridgeshire and one more locally in Fittleworth, welcome to both and we look forward to gaining good results for you.
In other news, we are delighted to be official sponsors for local football team Petworth FCs under 9s team. The boys look great sporting the Gab crown on their sleeves.

That was the week that was….a week stuffed with websites!
First off we launched the site for a newly formed company near Chichester.
A R Vehicle Refinishing specialise in car body repair, trading for a year owner Alex wants to get his name out there now. We also undertook the off-site SEO for this, adding Alex and his business to all the major search engines and relevant directories.
We look forward to seeing A R progressing up those all important ranks.
Next to launch was the (very large) site for our local football club – Petworth FC.
Being a Petworth business ourselves we were delighted to be chosen for this project. Work commenced with rose tinted glasses, how hard can a sports site be?? Well, we now know a lot about the million rules, regulation and pure hoop jumping the guys in charge have to endure! With very tired eyes the site was officially launched on Thursday to a great response. We will continue to host and maintain the site and social media plus compose a weekly newsletter to all our subscribers.
Play up the Red & Blacks!
And finally, once again, we fiddled with our own site! Gift of the Gab.This week see’s A D Hicks site go under construction for a rebuild and we have another couple on tender.
Is it acceptable when blogging as a business to make it personal? To expose the person behind the company, to open up and wonder whether it’s too much information?
Honestly? I don’t know.
What is blogging? To my mind an online diary. What would you write in your diary? Usual day to day stuff but on a more intimate level (in my opinion).
I find blogging therapeutic, I love being able to look back on achievements, fails and feelings so why can’t I incorporate that into the Gab? Why not indeed!
So, me being the hot headed Hannah I am just does it. What’s the worst that can happen? I lose potential clientele? Surely they need the personal touch and that involves showing yourself as a human.
I hope my blogs show my passion for the work I do, my struggles when I just can’t get it right, my triumph when it is perfect.
I hope that you reading this will embrace what I’m saying and stand up and be counted as not only amazing business person but also the real you.
Feeling a little jaded!
