    Small businesses account for 99.9% of the business population, according to the Federation of Small Businesses in 2021. At Barbour ABI we recognise the importance of each and every small business and understand that you may not have all the resources and skills in-house you need to thrive in the modern business world.

    That is where we would like to offer our advice and support. This month our content calendar theme of small business support will provide content which can help your small business succeed. By looking at topics such as how to be as efficient as possible in your sales and marketing efforts; how to strategise and decide upon where to best utilise the resources that you do currently have in-house; and how to improve your knowledge and skills in order to be best placed in the future to make the most of your small but powerful team!

    Late last year, we released a free service called ‘Marketing Mentors’. The service is dedicated to supporting our clients and wider industry colleagues in terms of strategy, tactics and tips that really work. Through blogs, white papers, listicles and guest articles from industry experts we will ensure you are getting the very best return on investment for every £ spent in marketing.

    Since launching our service, we have released multiple blogs which can help your small businesses improve and optimise your brands marketing activity – no matter the size of your in-house resources!
