Actually, it would have been nice to have an introduction, "Hello", "Pleased to meet you!", a few words about who you are, and your name.

You know - like people do when they enter a new group.

Without some sort of Getting to know you, I'm quite reluctant to answer the questions on your survey, no matter what they are.

'Guess I'm a bit old-fashioned.

Hey Spider!

Sorry - first day posting on a forum so still get used to it.
I'm Eve, part of a start-up who specializes in marketing and web design for small businesses. What do you do?

Also, Dan - thanks, I fixed the link but my reply telling you so earlier didn't post!

Hi, Eve! Welcome aboard. We moderate all posts from new members until they've had a chance to "prove" themselves (a sad but quite necessary anti-spam tactic we've had to adopt over the years). So there may be a delay between the time you post something and the time it shows up on the forum, at least initially.

Glad you have you here. I look forward to your continued participation in our discussions!

Hi, Torka! Thanks for the (two) welcomes!
That sounds interesting - I really like the huge mix of professionals in here and the insight into different industries it brings. Looking forward to engaging with other small businesses on this forum, and hopefully learning and helping in the process.

No problem, Eve - glad you came back without taking offence. I wish you well with your new business.

Does the new business specialize in marketing and web design or are you the marketing and web design specialist in a startup business with some other purpose?

I am a business coach, helping small business owners and independent professionals improve their game.

I look forward to sharing ideas with you.

That sounds like a great role, Spider - I also enjoy focusing on small businesses like ourselves and trying to help them grow.

The business itself focuses on online marketing and web-design, and within that, I specialize in marketing. Really enjoying it so far and the opportunities it provides to network with likeminded people - online and off!

I've always been fascinated my marketing. It's such a broad subject. And there seems to be a great diversity of opinion about what marketing is and isn't.

Although I help small businesses of all kinds now, my background is the construction industry (major projects), which, of course, has little need for what most people would call marketing.

How do you define your brand of marketing, Eve, and what are your favorite methods of marketing?
