• Now more than ever a blog is essential for any business. I have written previously about how your customers are using the internet for all manner of tasks. You can learn just about anything online now, book everything online, order all manner of services, you can even design custom fabric and get a pattern printed directly onto it and sent to you to sew. You can probably hire someone to sew it for you too! How do customers and clients find the products, services or contractors that they want? They use search and they use social referrals or finds. Think about your last five online purchases: what prompted you to purchase? When you think of recent online purchases which of

  • I have recently returned from a 3 week break. We drove from Dublin to the French Mediterranean coast with a little help from Irish Ferries. Most of our holidays are camping holidays. When I say camping, I mean actual camping with tent pegs and ground sheets and guys and all that jazz. Like all types of holidays, it has its pros and cons. One of the major pros, in my opinion, is the lack of electricity. We did cheat a little on the Mediterranean, this year, and rent a fridge. This meant we had electricity. However I stuck to my guns, allowing my phone to run down, only charging it in the car when directions and audio books were needed.

  • Last week we wrote a blog post about getting your small business ready for compliance with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It was based on our work with clients in helping them prepare for the big day on May 25th. It proved to be timely and extremely popular. So we gathered up all the resources and the worksheets that we had developed for clients and put together a four-part guide for small business to help them prepare for GDPR. It is delivered via email as follows: The Guide breaks down as follows: Step 1: Reading tasks to help you understand what exactly the General Data Protection Regulation is, what it means for your company and, indeed, for you as an

  • The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR or just GDPR) is coming into force in less than a month. On May 25th 2018 this regulation will become law in the 28 Member States. This regulation harmonises the diverse data protection legislation across the EU. It also is very focussed on individual citizen’s data and privacy rights, protecting as it does the EU’s own citizens regardless of where their data is processed and anyone whose data is processed in the EU. Finally the aspect that concerns many businesses are the fines that can be incurred if the company experiences a data breach or in other ways fails to respect and protect individual citizen’s data and the privacy of that

  • One of my favourite niche shops in Dublin emailed me one day completely out of the blue. I was excited to receive their email: I loved their shop and the potential their products offered but I couldn't always get there and I thought, "At last they are going online! I can't wait to browse their stock. Imagine all the great tips, advice and ideas they could share from their wealth of experience and information!" This excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I opened the email. The email didn't include a single link, not even to their homepage. All it contained was one long sentence informing me that one product was now in stock. There was a basic photo of the

  • Do I have to write blog posts, update Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, the latest social fad (SnapChat? Gawd halp us!) and keep a website updated? Roseanne considers this question in this blog post and offers some advice for how to manage your media. I was in the garden a good while back, having a coffee break. My neighbour Bob has 138 homing pigeons; he breeds them. They really are kind of amazing. For example, they are so attuned to "home" that they only perch on Bob's roof. It is rare that any of them even put a toe across the completely imaginary boundary between our house and Bob's. Talk about targeted! I was thinking that the reason Bob's pigeons exist is
