After months and months of development hell, Tim finally unveiled the new Logo Design for his business last night, down at Smokey Joe’s Bar.

But was it worth the wait?

It’s easier than you may think to completely mess up your business logo, and there are some very common mistakes which have been ruining logo designs for way too long.

But just how clever does your own logo need to be?
And what’s the crucial difference between Vector Graphics and Raster Graphics?

Here’s where so many attempts at Logo Design go horribly wrong…

Have you ever included QR Codes on your marketing materials?

How often have you actually scanned a QR Code yourself to reveal extra information on a product or a service?

Those nifty interactive barcodes can certainly divide opinion, with many business owners now preferring the ‘invisible’ functionality and bigger flexibility of NFC microchips.

But whatever your own preference, it’s safe to say that we can all have a warm-hearted chuckle when we see frankly bizarre examples of QR Code Marketing going disastrously wrong…
The strangest ever examples of QR Codes in business marketing.

Here’s a controversial topic which regularly stirs up heated debate down at Smokey Joe’s Business Bar.

Under what conditions do you deliver your very best work?

Is it when you have the leisurely freedom to be as creative as you wish in your own time and at your own pace?

Or is it when you’re working to a very strict deadline and you’re feeling the mounting pressure to deliver the goods on time?

I’ve given myself exactly seven minutes and seventeen seconds to find a definitive answer…
Do you create your very best work when you’re against the clock?

Everyone’s a critic.
But are you handling any online criticism of your business and services in the most productive way?

Are you making a clear distinction between valid criticism and blatant Trolling?

Is it ever ok to delete critical messages or negative feedback on Social Media?

And are you responding to criticism in a professional and effective manner, or do you end up getting bogged down in long-winded online feuds?

Arming myself with a red hot poker (just in case), I’m heading out into the darker corners of Cyberspace today in search of the right answers…

How safe is your Facebook business page?

If you slip into bad habits and overlook the simple steps to protect your account, you risk losing control of your Facebook page and giving away access to all kinds of sensitive information.

Rumour has it that ‘Sorry’ is the hardest word to say.
But what kind of tone do you adopt when it’s time to apologise to a disappointed customer?

Do you try and quickly gloss over it in the hope that everything will soon be forgiven and forgotten?

Or do you write a slightly hysterical 40,000 word apology in your own blood and swear on your life that it will never happen again?

Here are a few pointers to consider before crafting a sincere apology from your business...

Working from home.
Does it always really work?

When your office is also your home, it becomes much harder to separate the chaos of a working day with the chaos of your personal life!

These two sides of your life can end up spilling into each other until the quality of both becomes severely compromised.

Here’s how to keep a firm grip on your home office AND your home life…

Imagine that your business has come up with one of the best email marketing campaigns of all time.

None of that useless spammy nonsense, of course.
No, you’ve simply crafted an ingenious way of updating your loyal customer base with exciting news which you think will be of genuine interest to them.
Perhaps you’re announcing a special offer, the launch of a brand new product or service, or just something that your clients will find useful or of great value.

So far so good.
But what if a big chunk of your amazing emails end up getting mistaken for spam and thrown straight into the junk folders without ever getting seen by your recipients?

Here are a few quick handy tips to help your future marketing emails find their true destination…

The latest rumour is that Twitter could be getting ready to ditch the 140-character limit from your Tweets.
And these particular rumours could well turn out to have some substance behind them…

But is this potentially huge new development something to be welcomed or feared?
How exactly is Twitter likely to implement such a drastic change, and could it have a huge impact on your business tweeting?

And in the meantime, how can you currently ‘cheat’ the 140-character limit with very little effort?
Is Twitter gearing up to drop the 140-character limit in your Tweets?
