FREE BUSINESS SALES AND MARKETING ADVICE FORUM LAUNCHES Tuesday 5 February 2008 PDF Print Free marketing and sales advice website www.salesandmarketingforums.co.uk are officially launching, having had a successful beta testing period. Word of mouth alone has attracted thousands of Small to Medium Enterprises (SME’s), with the website’s owners targeting 10’s of thousands more members by the end of the year. The forum is a place for small to medium business enterprises to freely share and discuss ideas and tactics, saving businesses a fortune in marketing consultancy fees. The site has developed into one of the most popular sales and marketing forums online despite still being in relative infancy, having only been online for 5 months. Salesandmarketingforums.co.uk is the result of sales and marketing consultant Dave Paget and business partner Craig Burrow’s combined experience, and looks set to build on a successful end to 2007. The site attracted over 10,000 unique visitors in its short beta testing period, all with no formal marketing in place. The forum is entirely free to join, with hundreds of hits a day at present. The online venture enables businesses from all over the world to work together for the good of the industry, and the community looks set to grow. Co-owner Dave Paget has recently appeared on regional radio, and is targeting huge growth via a comprehensive marketing strategy, including further radio exposure, online advertising and a media campaign. Dave, who will be attending key business networking events throughout the year promoting the company, said: “We are amazed at the level of interest the forum has generated, all at this point via word of mouth alone. Hundreds of SME’s have benefitted from one of the largest pools of marketing advice I have ever seen, and we are extremely excited about the official launch. We are hoping that with promotion, the website can develop into a large business community, enabling many more companies from the world over to communicate and improve their services. 2008 is a big year for us.” Craig Burrows, co-owner of the website, has no doubt that the success of the website will continue in 2008. Craig also owns www.inventorforums.co.uk, a site dedicated to enhancing communication between UK inventors, and he commented, “Due to the impending marketing campaign, we are predicting over 30’000 registered members in 2008. This is a really exciting time for us, and we look forward to fulfilling the potential that we know this forum has. We all know business is tough, but with the right help, anybody can succeed.” ENDS EDITORS NOTES For further information contact Rich Leigh, 10 Yetis Public Relations Agency on 01452 527898, or firstname.lastname@example.org USP 1 – www.salesandmarketingforums.co.uk hope to become the number 1 resource for SME’s for sales and marketing advice USP 2 – www.salesandmarketingforums.co.uk is a completely free resource – no revenue is generated at all from the site USP 3 – www.salesandmarketingforums.co.uk does not and will not offer advertising to other businesses to keep the website clutter and politics free This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of 10 Yetis PR and Marketing in the following categories: Education & Human Resources, Media & Marketing, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
