BNI 60 Seconds - Start Blogging!


Each week in our BNI lunchtime meeting, I am expected to get up and tell other members and visitors a little bit about my work in a sixty second snapshot.

If you want to find out a bit more about our weekly meetings, skip to the bottom of this page.

Here's what I had to say this week:

"My name is Jon Ewing and I am from ltd, a website design and development company from Reading established more than ten years ago.

"You should refer business to me because I offer a reliable, friendly and personal service at the competitive rate of just £35 per hour.

"This week we've been redesigning a website for a hotel. The owner is keen to keep his customers informed about special events, boost his search engine ranking and generally keep his site fresh by writing a weekly blog. So we've seamlessly integrated his blog into the design of his own website, so he can update his site without needing to understand about writing HTML or uploading files. In fact, he writes his blog using Blogger, the Google-owned, free blogging service, which powers the blog, too.

"So this week I'd like you to refer someone to me who has a website but doesn't know how to update it and I'll show them how they can add professional-looking new pages to it every day of the week.

"To find out how good your website could be, look into inframes."

What's BNI?

I am one of half-a-dozen people who have started a new chapter of the BNI business networking group and we're looking for other Reading-based small business professionals to refer business to.

We meet between 12.15pm and 1.45pm on Wednesdays. If you'd like to come along to a lunch, please drop me a line or give me a call and I'll put you in touch with our organiser.

There's absolutely no commitment required – you just pay a tenner, which covers the cost of lunch at the Strada on the Oracle Riverside - and you'll have a chance to meet existing members and other visitors, introduce your business and of course hand out business cards.
