Marketing in the New Year

What to do in the new year with your business and marketing plan can seem quite daunting, as the first few months after the holiday season can generally be quieter when it comes to business growth.

At Pinch of Salts, we work with clients who have a start-up or even just an idea, helping them grow with honest marketing support.

A website is an integral part of a business and its marketing, but they don’t have the cost the earth. Most importantly they should be secure, look great and perform as the client needs it to. The websites we design and build are done properly, securely and effectively, not like the off the shelf packages that claim to be fantastic!

Professional vs Amateur Photography for Business

The number of people who have camera phones is in the millions, maybe even billions, and the quality of cameras on smart phones is increasing year on year. Social media apps such as Instagram and other free photo editors have made it easy to add filters and change the look of images, factors that all contribute to the fact that many are now calling themselves photographers. .

Why You Shouldn’t Try to Build Your Own Website

There are many DIY website builder packages available online which seem appealing due to their affordability and the feeling that you can design a site exactly how you want it. When you begin using one of these sites, you soon realise they are not all that they are made out to be, and you may really be hindering your business’s chances of having website visitors without knowing it.

Reviewing Your Marketing Strategy After Lockdown

Whether your business has a solid marketing plan or not, now is the time to review and adapt your plan to fit with the ever-changing circumstances that we find ourselves in.

What was planned for digital brands in 2020 has since been put on the backburner. The COVID-19 outbreak has completely reshaped everything that this year was going to be across all industries. The coronavirus pandemic has already left a mark on society and is likely to be a pivot point in the way business and commerce works going forward.

What We’ve Learnt During Lockdown

Being in a situation that we have never been in before is eye opening. Here are some things, from the serious to the silly, that we have learnt during lockdown.

People really pull together in times of need
We’ve seen cases of this in the past, but the COVID-19 outbreak and everything it brought with it has pulled the nation together like never before. From clapping on our doorsteps every Thursday night to show our appreciation for the NHS and frontline workers to helping raise almost £30 million with Captain Tom Moore, the UK have gone above and beyond to support each other in a number of ways.

What’s Keeping Us Busy This Week

Being in lockdown and not being able to leave the house or take part in any kind of social situation is leaving many people not knowing what to do to fill their time. Here are some things that have been keeping us busy this week…

1. Social media
Much like everyone else, social media has become even more of a focus for us recently, not only personally, but as social media is a large part of our jobs. The country (and much of the world) being made to stay inside pushes everyone further online...

Coronavirus means isolation, and isolation means social media.

Guide to a Happy and Healthy Self-Isolation!

Here is our guide of 7 tips for making the most of self-isolation. We are currently in an uncertain and somewhat worrying time, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use it to our advantage and try to enjoy this time we have at home.

1. Don’t stay in your pyjamas all day!
Whether you’re able to work from home or not, it’s a good idea to change out of your pyjamas. You don’t have to put on work clothes, or even anything more than a comfy tracksuit, but getting up, washed and ready for the day as if it were any other does wonders for a positive mindset. Our top tip is to change into gym or exercise clothes to encourage you to exercise later on in the day.
