Many thanks to Sally from simplyfood for bringing us in a spooky cake! That will be very nice with a coffee or two
We say it as it is here at Curlytowers ™ . We aren’t going to take any of your money for something we don’t think is going to work. We won’t recommend anything we don’t think is right for you just because we can get some money out of you.
Just this last week I talked two potential clients out a social media campaign.
Why? Because they couldn’t commit the time or budget to it.
It’s the hot button, the toasty crumpet, the tasty shoe of the moment…social media. “Get yourself on twitter, get yourself on facebook, myspace, youtube, beboo, whichhat and bigtank* and get business” They shout (Im not sure who they are, but they are out there).
I’m afraid it not quite that easy. Signing up for an account and creating a profile will do nothing (it could have a tiny tiny bit of SEO power)
Even worse would be signing up for an account and then starting to prattle on about your services and offers…nobody cares…nobody is taking any notice and you are going to damage your brand.
“So how should I do this Social Media Mr. smarty pants**”
Well its quite easy, but takes a large chunk of time. You need to get involved in the community. You need to talk to people, ask questions, answer questions…talk about things completely nothing to do with your new fantastic offer or service. Be a nice person, be respected. Build up a reputation.
Then and only then can you start to introduce your business and services.
If you can afford the time to devote to social media it is a wonderful way to bring in visitors and business. Used in a spammy way will be a waste of time and scare people away

I seem to start most of my blog rambles with a rant about how busy it is at the moment.
This one is no different.
Golly its been rather busy at the towers In the past month we must have least welcomed a good 9 and a half new clients aboard and finished some lovely bits and bobs for our current lovely chap base. (Have I written a recent blog that contained the exact same paragraph as above – I think I have) We’ve been inside caravans, charmed by owls and become obsessed with solar panel installation.
“So whats new at the towers?” I hear you cry. Well nothing too exciting to be honest. We recently moved the desks to a new angle of 30 degrees. The general consensus of the new angle is that ‘It looks fine’ Im not too convinced myself, it seems to have lost some of its vibe. It just looks a bit too thunderbirdsy.
In other news we have replaced one of our cups of coffee everyday with a lemon and nettle infusion.
Gosh what an exciting blog posting. There is some exciting bits and bobs in the pipeline for Curlykale, I hope to bring you news of them very soon, but for now…I must go repot my basil.
Have a lovely weeked.
Well blush my cheeks and rub my goosebumps, we’ve just had a lovely testimonial in from the wonderful Lyndsay and Martin over at Rosy Tree
“Adam is an absolute a joy to work with! There is no pushy sales talk, no false promises just a really approachable and friendly guy with fantastic creative flair and eye for design!
It has honestly been a pleasure working with Adam, the whole process has been so smooth and nothing was too big a task.
He has provided us with a professional, eye-catching and most importantly, affordable, website and I would recommend Curly Kale to anyone and will most certainly be returning again!
Thank you so much for everything (Including your amazingly fast responses to our many emails…whatever time of day!)
