I love these illustrated Youtube videos, though this one got me thinking about how I use the 6 scientifically proven short cuts of persuasion. Have a look at this video from http://www.influenceatwork.com/ on what these 6 short cuts are and how you may be already using some of them in your day to day work. I was really surprised to find I was already using half of these persuasion techniques within my business and personal life, In some situations I am certain that some of these principles have positively increased how my business has expanded over the last 4 years.

Just to make people aware… I have just had a look at the Yell Business website and I can’t believe that they offer you a website for such an expensive package. Check it out via this link – http://business.yell.com/websites/ So you have to pay £399 upfront and then £65 per month after this which amounts to £1179 in your first year, this sounds a little pricey to me but thousands of small businesses take them up on it. Not only that but you will then carry on paying £780 every year to keep it going. So why don’t businesses go with small local webdesign companies to sort out their on-line presence […]
Getting an inbox full of company’s offering you services from a far away country? Offering prices so amazing that your jaw drops? And hang on a minute…. its exactly what you do!!! This has happened to me over the last few days and admittedly most of these emails that end up in you info@ mail box tend to be from real dodgy types looking to increase the size or lengthen the you know what….. But hey sometimes some of these are from outfits that look like they are what they are. My issue is with a company that not only send an email from a reputable looking company but also look like […]
My first blog in months! and I thought it was only right to write about what has been keeping me away from updating my content for so long. Well it has now been a year since I created my business “Sorbrook” and things have gone from strength to strength though now I am starting to be even more creative in what I am doing and having to shift priorities and ways that I do business. My client base has matured over the last year and the people I now do business with are more than just business acquaintances, I feel they are more like a business family. This has become […]
Everyone wants to put across the right impression when promoting their business, but there are some simple things which need to be taken into account to ensure your brand looks professional. Let’s take a basic flyer for our example for now. It’s all very well trying to stand out from the crowd but certain things on your flyer need to be avoided. 5 things not to do: 1. Don’t capitalise text to make it stand out. The human brain recognises shapes of words not just of letters and when all letters are capitalised the normal word shape is lost, This is why all UK road signs back in the 50’s […]
Here’s a funny one for you.. I just purchased car breakdown cover as I know in the coming months I may need to make a few long journeys. Now I didn’t go to google and type in Breakdown Recovery, instead I just typed “The AA”. So Why is that? I asked myself, well I know I must have seen at least 3 adverts on the TV in the last few days and I have seen a number of their vans around in this cold weather and I seem to remember I had an email from them as I had been looking into Car Insurance. This just shows that if your […]
