Hey Tim, I think the best social platform to use really depends on your line of business. You need to go when your audience – or in this case – customers, are. If you were a restaurant – you’d definitely want to focus on your Insta and produce droolworthy shots of your dishes. Have an arty or crafty business – head to Pinterest. In professional services – then LinkedIn should be your bag. It’s also important to remember you don’t have to be on every platform – and to make sure that you have a consistent presence. if creating content sounds painful to you, check out a few of these article for inspiration.

Monday and Hubspot seem to provide robust solutions.Cec Busby Editor Flying SoloJuly 19, 2021 at 3:32 pm #1228878
I think it has to have content that I can actually take away and put into practice as soon as I get back to my desk. If it’s just table scraps in the hope we pony up for an expensive course or book or whatever, then it’s a waste of my time, and time is money. The speakers can have all the energy in the world but if they’re just spouting platitudes and cliches then it’s also a waste of time.
I totally agree. Clear actionable takeaways are a must – though I have to say I’m a sucker for stationery – give me a notebook and a nice new pen and I’m happy as Larry (whoever he may be…)Cec Busby Editor Flying SoloJuly 19, 2021 at 3:26 pm #1228877
Heya, a couple of questions? How do the tips work at your restaurant? Do your staff split the tips or do staff get what they earn – for example sometimes when I’m at a fine dining restaurant I would pay the sommelier a tip and my wait staff- but it is for their service not the staff of the restaurant as a whole. Is she simply taking what was given to her as a tip by a specific customer? Or is she stealing from a combine tip pool. Also, tips are generally split between staff – the restaurant doesn’t get a cut. So theoretically she isn’t stealing from your sister but from her workmates…Cec Busby Editor Flying SoloJuly 14, 2021 at 8:26 am #1228765
I filled out your survey – Just an FYI your form capture at the end didn’t allow me to enter deets. Good luck with the business. Cheers, CecCec Busby Editor Flying SoloMay 28, 2021 at 12:48 pm #1227855

If I had to choose then I would go with Lux, but Dave and co. make great points. Some further things to consider include:
how your business differs from competitors
what image you want to communicate to your customers
if any businesses already uses the name or have a similar business name
if someone has trademarked the name
if the name is already registered as a domain name
Also: is it easy to remember?
easy to pronounce and spell?
short and simple
descriptive – so it means something to your customers
different from your competitors

Good luck with it.Cec Busby Editor Flying Solo
