Five words to make you money

1. Easy
Everyone wants stuff that's easy. We want things to be easy to use, we want results to easier to achieve, we want everything easy. If your product or service makes people's lives easier, make sure you tell them.

2. You
The 'magic' word in all good copy! Using the word 'you' forces you to have a personal conversation with the person reading it. Don't you agree?

3. Now
There comes a point when you need to tell your customer what to do. They need to call you, or order form you or 'click here'. But you don't want them doing it tomorrow or next week. You want them to do it now - so tell them.

4. Free
Very powerful. People love anything that's free. Particularly useful to generate new sales leads

5. No Risk
Anything you can do to reduce the risk of your customers will increase your sales. Your customer may not be consciously thinking about it but subconsciously they're worrying about risking money and possible time by doing business with you. Risk elimination is one of the most effective marketing strategies available to you.

They say that most accidents happen in the home and this is no exception! Viv walked right into a table and this was the wincing result!

Hi... my name's HUGO!

I know this might not be of much interest, but I loved the photo so much, I wanted to share it with the world! Sadly our last hamster "Bob" passed away, but with the nagging of my 2 daughters to purchase a new hamster as soon as possible... that's exactly what we did. So here's Hugo, our syrian hamster for all to see.

Clover Spa Reveals ALL!...

That's right... Clover Spa reveals all in this very colourful and informative compact handy brochure.
An 8-page, double-folded DL worked perfectly for what was required - impact and information.

Feast your eyes on this gourmet of menu design's

As a way of promoting the fine cuisine and superb wines available at the Butcher's Arms, Prior's Hardwick, we developed a range of updatable food and wine wallets (which allows for what goes on the menu's themselves to be updated when neccessary without any additional costs being incurred), utilising the newly designed logo identity. As well as the food and wine wallets, we have developed a range of mini table cards (which are again updatable)!

This offered the perfect recipe for design success!

Just added some new websites to our site!

So over the last few months we have been very busy creating some new websites for various clients. Finally I have had chance to update our site for the world to see them! Take a look through and let us know what you think.
