I’m sorry. That headline reads like a Groupon or something, but please do stay with me if you’re involved in an SME, struggling with the online world of today. Goosed.ie is a consumer website. That means we look after people going out and shopping. However, during the pandemic, the lines between consumer and business owner have become more blurred than ever (looking at you, person who put a coffee machine into a horsebox). That’s why I’m covering this.
A group of marketers are trading their time for a £25 donation to the refugee charity Barnardos in Northern Ireland. This is open to everyone, including SMEs in Ireland which comes at about €30 for a 45-minute meeting. If you don’t do the marketing for an SME, I’ll share a secret. That’s outrageously cheap to get access to people like this and you get to help a very worthy cause.
There are seven marketing experts available to discuss their business in-depth and get real, actionable tips to improve marketing efforts. While these are usually held in person, the clinics will now be held virtually meaning anyone seeking help can now tap into this resource. 100% of the money you are spending goes to the charity while 100% of the advice you get is yours to take away.
Andi Jarvis, Founder at Friends Of, says “these consultations give small businesses the chance to access excellent advice at an affordable price. The team of Friends Of consultants are some of the best marketers in [Northern Ireland] and have already helped a number of local companies through these sessions. We’re proud to partner with Barnardo’s [Northern Ireland] to help raise money for their work with young refugees. Every penny we raise is donated to Barnardo’s and stays in Northern Ireland to fund their essential services”.
Look up “win win” in the business-owner dictionary and you’ll find this.
