Course Description

Are you ready to take your start-up idea or small business to the next level?

  • Do you sometimes feel lost in a maze with your business?
  • Are you just not sure how to grow your traffic to get more clients and customers?
  • Do you often feel demotivated and not clear on your objectives?
  • Do you struggle with organization and sometimes end the day feeling like you haven't achieved enough?

If you said yes to any of the above then you are in the right place. It's time to take control and map out a clear path for your business.

Who Is This Course For?

Anyone who runs a small business whether online or brick and mortar. It doesn't matter whether you run a handmade or creative business, are a pet sitter, restaurant owner, accountant, florist or anything in between. The key is you want to develop the marketing for your business and in the process grow your potential audience.

Why Am I Teaching This Course?

Because 5 years ago I was in the same place you are now. I was at the start of building my business and I had to design my blogs and grow traffic to them from scratch. I was also disorganized and inconsistent when it came to blogging, marketing and building a newsletter.

Unfortunately I didn't have a network around me and I would have loved someone to show me all the steps I needed to take whilst surrounded by people who were also growing their businesses.

However through a great deal of trial and error I learned all the steps necessary to bring me to the place I am now. A place where 3 years ago I was able to walk away from a corporate HR position to take my business full time. If you join me in the 'Small Business Incubator' that trial and error will be removed for you and that's why I want to share what I've learned.

I trained as a teacher, worked for 16 years as an HR Manager and I have grown my own business from scratch. I feel very fortunate because the skills and experience I learned from all three of those things now allow me to do what I love - work with individuals and small groups of people to help them make their businesses thrive.

Instructor Biography

Alison Wood, Business & Marketing Trainer

I love to help people grow their businesses through the power of marketing.

My background includes a BA Honours in English & History and postgraduate studies in teaching. Before I took my business full-time I spent 16 years as a Human Resources Manager for a blue-chip company in the South East of the UK.

During the last six years I have created a number of successful websites and I have become adept at the design and administration of Wordpress sites. I am also knowledgeable and creative in the areas of social networking, blogging, SEO and marketing.

Take a look at my courses and learn from my direct experience, so that you don't have to invest the same amount of time and can be up to speed much more quickly. I look forward to working with you.
