If you're stuck trying to think of something to write for your blog (or podcast or videos or email) then these 7 tips on the salesforce.com blog should help.
Anyone who’s ever started a blog eventually hits a slump. If you’ve been there you’ll know what I mean. Suddenly the steady flow of ideas that drove your content production grinds to a halt. Every word has to be dragged out of your brain. And nothing you write seems up to scratch. So you stop for a

Your thoughts? "Free or low cost" marketing sounds great. But there's a real downside I think.

Yes but....(there's always a but). Most people doing free and low cost marketing aren't testing at all. They're just doing what they think doesn't cost them rather than testing and measuring ROI (and they rarely include the cost of their time)

Just come off a hangout interview with Luke Charlton on the Elite Entrepreneur show http://zagcoaching.com/hangouts/. Luke asked some very smart questions about email marketing, starting from scratch, facebook ads, and a bunch of other stuff.

Story
Tagline
Working with consultants, coaches and other professionals to help them attract and win more clients without the pain and expense of traditional marketing.
Introduction
My job is to help consultants, coaches and other professionals get more clients - fast.

I've been a consultant and coach for 17 years. But I'm far from a natural salesperson. I learnt the hard way that to do the interesting, challenging and rewarding work I wanted to focus on - I would need to learn to market myself.



Over the years I've learned what it takes for even the most reluctant of consultants to become effective at marketing and sales. 



And that's what I teach my clients today: simple, effective ways for them to get more clients.

You can get a free copy of my Pain Free Marketing Blueprint - the straightforward guide to attracting and winning clients at www.ianbrodie.com/moreclients.

These guys are incompetent and don't care about decent service. If I could give them zero stars I would. I had an iPhone 5 with a faulty chip on the logic board which I had diagnosed by a repair shop in Edinburgh. I was told these guys could fix it so I sent it to them on April 10th with the details of the diagnosis telling them that the problem was on the logic board. On April 17 they replied to me saying there was a problem with the battery. I wrote back saying no, we had that tested and the battery was brand new. On April 24 they replied syaing they'd done further tests and it was the charging port. Again I told them the port was brand new and the problem was on the logic board. On April 28th they finally figured out what it was and emailed to say they were awaiting parts and there would be a 4-7 day delay. On May 9th they emailed to say they couldn't fix the phone and would be returning it. On May 22nd I emailed to ask where my phone was. Turns out they lost it sending it to me. It took them until July 13th - nearly 2 months later and over 3 months since I sent the phone to them to eventually get back to me to to say they couldn't find it and they would be sending me a "like-for-like replacement" for my broken phone. I have asked them to just pay me the value of the phone in its broken state. That saves them finding an exact like for like replacement (lord knows how long that will take them), posting it to me, then me selling it for scrap value and having to post that off. Yet despite their complete incompetence in diagnosing the fault and in losing my phone and inconveniencing me for 3 months, they're refusing to do even this one small piece of customer service. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS.
