- About SMB10X
Background & Info
We Are Your Team
For Small Business 10X, despite our bosses combined calendar age – we still think we are STILL at the beginning of the journey. But here’s how we got to where we are now.
We don’t believe in telling, we’re more a fan of doing. In one guise or another we’ve been in the interwebs business since it’s inceptions waaaay back in the 90’s and this website and associated blogs is all about helping small businesses get some results that will a lot of marketing is all smoke and mirrors.
business partner for your business 10X growth.
We care, we really do. As a small business we know the challenges, we know what keeps you awake and also what gets you jumping out of bed to crush the day. We have as much passion for your business as you do. Passion fuels and drives us to help your business be the best it can be.
You need to do the right things, the right way and at the right time. Being consistent is what makes the difference when you are marketing and promoting. It’s at the heart of what we do!
You are not a commodity and neither are we, we see ourselves as your partner, when you succeed we do. That’s how we think and we operate our business to serve yours.
There is not just ONE way, there are many and by being creative we can carve new ways to work for you. From design, to delivery, creativity sets us apart.
I Don't Need A Website, I Use Facebook!
Or Instagram, or Snapchat or Pinterest or Twitter…. you get the idea.
GREAT! Go be social on social media, the clue is in the title. You can also sell (we do!) but it is an extension of your business. There is one BIG problem with only being on social media….
That’s not where the search engines are all the time, think Google and Bing, that’s where we all go when we are looking to find something right? And that is precisely why your business needs to be there. So if you think you are in an industry that does not need a website, think again. You do.
Expensive, yeah they can be. But they don’t need to cost thousands of pounds anymore. But – equally, FREE sites don’t cut it. They might be super easy to use but I doubt they appear in search results. If it’s super easy to use, then it will be hard to find.
Let us design you a professional site, better looking than the free ones, we even use or get you your own domain name. Get yourself a business website to be proud of. We build and focus on local customers and we’ll make sure you get found in the search engines too.
I have a Personal Business Email
No, no you don’t. You use a personal email, if it’s not linked to a business domain, that’s what you have and people (customers) wont trust you as much. It just looks like you are maybe running your business part-time, a paying hobby maybe. Hey…it might be, but it’s best to look like this is something you are serious about and then the customers faith in you will increase 10 fold.
If you have a website being designed, worry not, we will be arranging your branded emails for you as well. If not, that’s also fine, you can just select the BOOST package option and we’ll arrange just the emails for you.
They really are essential to show your business in the professional and trustworthy light it deserves
See – the people have spoken, now hit the button and we’ll get you sorted out. PLUS you get to choose a domain name to link the emails too.
Landlines - they are so 20th Century
Oh contrare…Jo Public doesn’t but the main businesses around the country…the world in fact, they still use landlines. Why? It’s all about trust.
How would you feel ringing up a facilities on their mobile? It’s just weird, the same for your TV, your internet and your Doctor to name a few. Yes we live in a digital age and technology is amazing BUT. when we need to speak to a professional anything other than a landline has us raising our eyebrows.
It is the SAME for small businesses. If Mrs Smith needs her boiler seeing too and there is a landline on one advert and a mobile only on another, all other things being equal, she will CHOOSE the landline.
- it’s a local number
- it’s a more established business (true or not, that’s the impression)
- the business is more professional
- the business owner is more trustworthy
All that just from an email address? You betcha! So for the sake of a cost of a pint and bag of crisps, put your customers mind to rest and promote your business the right way.
