Finalists for BizMum awards 2017 announced.

Louise Bell – “Online Mum of the Year Award Finalist”

Simply Amazing!

Starting this morning extremely overwhelmed! I have been selected as a finalist for the BizMums “Online Mum of the Year 2017” Award!

I truly did not expect to achieve such an accolade and yet now I have, it makes me all the more hungry for the final and to aspire to win the category.

For those who know me, I am extremely driven (sometimes annoyingly so!) but I always strive to prove my value and provide the best life and experiences for my son.

Running your own business (be you male or female) comes with its own set of challenges, regardless of individual circumstances. I have to say  I love my life at the moment and all the challenges, posed to me and I keep striving forward!

Setting up Bell4Business Limited was a huge gamble for me, being sole provider for our household, it was a scary prospect. With support, encouragement and some amazing clients, I can say I’m overwhelmed and none of this would be possible without help from all my family, friends & business contacts.

I’m grateful for the network of amazing local business people I regularly meet with and how we all support each other and our businesses.

So here’s to the awards presentation on Sunday 8th October at The Manor House Hotel in Alsager, Cheshire and keeping everything crossed!!!

6 Signs you need to invest in a social media partner

 6 Signs you need to invest in a social media partner 

Social media is an important part of any modern business. So many companies (your competitors!) are now engaging with this form of advertising. There are several factors that cause companies to stay away from social media, neglect their social presence and worse, damage their brand’s reputation by doing social media badly.

Most likely time constraints, lack of knowledge, or bad advice can be contributing factors. Whatever the reason, we’re going to look at some of the signs to watch out for that indicate you should invest in a social media management company or consultant.

If you would like to discuss your social media provisions with Louise and her team, please call 01482842802 or email [email protected] 

Sign 1 – Your business doesn’t have a social media presence. Both you & your business are potentially missing out on customers! Imagine if you are found easily, who could be your next customer?
Sign 2 – Competitors are generating business from social media. Whether you’re available on social media or not, you can almost guarantee that at least one of your competitors are.
Sign 3 – Don’t have the time to manage your social media accounts effectively. 
Businesses are owner operated and most owner operators find they have very volatile schedules. 
Sign 4 – Social media advertising is something you’d like to explore but you don’t have the confidence to apply your ideas? Utilising a social media company can get you started.
Sign 5 – Worried about large gaps in your social media activity? Marketing is fundamentally consistency; firm plan of action carried out with a degree of regularity. Not about just one post per day!
Sign 6 – Customer enquiries and opportunities being missed? If you’re doing well with your social activities and getting noticed, you’ll find prospects will ask more about your products and services.

Bell4Business has motioned growth ambitions by appointing a full-time Apprentice Assistant

Bell4Business based in East Yorkshire has motioned growth ambitions by appointing a full-time Administration Assistant.

Mia Staves joined the company 6 weeks ago and has proved a valuable addition already. Speaking to Louise Bell, Director “I have always seen the value of employing Apprentices and I’m so pleased with how Mia has settled in. I have worked with and on behalf of YH Training Services in Hull and I have been really impressed how they handle their recruitment/training processes. They were a natural choice when I decided to take my business to the next level”. Louise further explained there are changes to the Apprentice Funding System, firstly the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, apprenticeship service and ‘co-investment’ rate to support employers who don’t pay the levy. The ‘co-investment’ is when employers and government share the cost of training and assessing apprentices. She said, “This should not put employers off and by using a training provider, they are able to best advise and steer you through a really easy process, thus leaving you to reap the benefits of employing an apprentice.”

Established in 2016 the business has recently become Limited and grown from Louise working for several local businesses to now employing Mia full time and a second part time Assistant, Toby Evans. Bell4Business offer services ranging from social media management, marketing, book-keeping, telephone answering and general admin.

Louise explained “I have been self-employed for the best part of 12 years, I’m a keen networker and I’ve built up a fantastic array of contacts over this time and continue to do so. I get a real kick out of helping business grow and seeing individuals take back a little time for themselves by letting us take care of the day to day necessary work.”

Louise further explained “I have always been passionate and committed to employing, buying, supporting and promoting locally. Although we are currently looking to expand our portfolio of businesses, we are extremely proud to have the customers we already work alongside. Our current customers cover businesses from The Karri Clinic a Plastic Surgeons in Willerby to EP Warmfloor, an Underfloor Heating company from Scunthorpe and everything in-between, it is fair to say we never get bored!”

Should you wish to contact Louise to discuss your requirements further or indeed find out a little more about networking events in the area, please do not hesitate to contact Bell4Business.
