When a new year comes around, many people see this as the perfect opportunity to start fresh, kick some habits, learn new skills and set some resolutions that they want to stick to during the New Year.
However, it’s said that 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February, which means the odds of you sticking to them and achieving them aren’t that high. Luckily though, you have us!
Below we’re going to give you a few tricks to help you achieve your New Year’s resolution during 2018.
We all know that we need to recycle as much as we can to reduce the strain already on the environment. According to the UK government and their latest statistics, we generated 202.8 million tonnes of total waste in 2014. When a small car weighs 1 ton this seems like a staggering amount. As a business owner it’s important to take some responsibility for the waste your business produces which can seem difficult, time consuming and another thing for the to do list. It’s important that business owners see the value in recycling, not just for the planet but for the potentially cost saving benefit.
At L4N UK, we put all of our attendees first because we want to see your businesses grow and flourish, achieving the success that you deserve. With this in mind, we decided to start a membership scheme, giving you the opportunity to get valuable support, helpful content and attend networking meetings at a discounted rate, all of which will help you and your business to succeed.
We have some VERY exciting developments happening at L4N UK. Marina Simioli, the original founder of Ladies 4 Networking, is coming back to L4N UK and will be working closely with Lisa Panton to launch a brand new group at Croft Myl, in the centre of Halifax which will start on the 20th September 2017, the meetings will then be on the third Wednesday of every month.
In 2016, the number of active mobile phones in the world surpassed the number of people in the world. This means that most people have a mobile device, and some people will have more than one. While phones were once used exclusively for making phone calls and, later, sending and receiving messages, most people will now use their phone for apps first. Phones are now more like little computers, and apps are the only way to make these computers functional, so it makes sense that more and more apps are being released every day.
For companies, this offers an irresistible opportunity to reach more customers and generate more income or enquiries. Get it right, and your app could go viral and users will discover your company through this relatively new marketing medium. Get it wrong, and you could end up investing a lot of money into a project that never gets off the ground. The type of app you build will depend on your industry, target audience and objectives. Understanding all three of these objectives will be essential to ensuring that your app is a success. However, if you’re struggling to convince key stakeholders that an app could be beneficial, it helps to be able to sell the benefits. Here are five ways developing an app for your business could help to boost sales, give you free marketing and ultimately grow your business.
