This sort of begs the question- just how many businesses, especially smaller ones, will actually get good value from hiring agencies at all  any more? maybe we are on the cusp of more and more deciding to do it themselves as the tools and technologies become easier to use. After all they are the ones that really undestand what thier customers really want and what value they deliver.

Some suggestions for Matt Cutts
 With the current vogue for content marketing we are being submerged by a tsunami of very moderate content, the motivation seems to be quantity will get you noticed and ranked. Google has expanded its quality guidelines and identifying quality long form content in its search results. Here are some simple ( and lighthearted!) suggestions about what Matt Cutts could do next!...

linkedIn: Connections are for show relationships are for dough! It seems that although LinkedIn is regarded as the best business development channel for small business B2B's- very few people are in fact successful.

Story
Tagline
Adviser: Technology and marketing for small businesses
Introduction
I have been an independent business adviser specialising in technology and business since 2000.
I operate through a small business (Masters Associates) with my wife Joanna and we are based in South Wales in the UK.
We have carried out over 300 assignments, mainly for small and medium sized businesses,over the past 13 years. these tend to be characterized by longer term engagements with hands on involvement.
My background is as the MD of a large international IT company (Fujitsu Services) but more recent work has been largely in the areas of technology and marketing for small businesses.

I have used a number of building contractors, and i have to say my experience with Rob Murray has been very good. The tradesmen he used were good and pleasant as were his chosen sub-contractors. Also communication was very good and we were kept informed of progress and an issues as they occurred. The completed project exceeded our expectations and was delivered on time.

I have used Colin Boxalls services for over 10 years now and i can wholeheartedly recommend both him and his company. He has repaired and serviced my central heating boiler and Aga and fixed many years and dealt with ad hoc problems such as leaks etc with the minimum of fuss. They say you only truly find about a supplier when you have a problem and how they respond. I can honestly say that Colin passes this test and he has always dealt with me fairly and with a good sense of humor.
