Over the past couple of months the Bath Business Web Team have been very active building awareness of our on-line directories and our creation of fully optimised customer websites. As paper directories get weaker and weaker, for example, the latest edition of Yellow Pages has arrived on our doorsteps with a significant decrease of over 243 whole pages, there has been greater increase in Google searches by the public. 76% of internet users are now going online every day (BMRB, August 2008); UK internet users are spending an average of 23 hours a week online (YouGov)
We played a major part at the West Wilts Show with our business stand in the business tent over the 3 days. Warminster Town Council approached us to quote for their new website.
On Saturday 12th September, Frome Cheese Show attracted thousands of customers to over 300 trade stands. Thousands of leaflets were delivered, again, increasing awareness of all of our websites.
At Bristol Business Show there were over a 100 businesses attending and Duncan was there in the deep end again.
Duncan also attended a networking breakfast at Cumberwell Park Golf Club for the Wessex Chamber of Commerce.
3 of the team attended the FSB awards at the Guildhall on Friday 11th September.
And then the highlight of these events was when Duncan attended the business seminars for new ideas at NEC Birmingham where one of the high profile business people that he met was Deborah Meaden of Dragon's Den, see picture below.
As you can see, we are being as active as possible to grow our successful business which is good news for all our customers.
