Six factors to consider when shopping for forklifts

By |July 27th, 2016|Carrylift, Latest News, Public Relations, TB Marketing|

How much is a forklift? As sarcastic but savvy salespeople might put it – how long is a piece of string? Most businesses look for a ballpark figure when pricing up the addition of forklifts to their fleet, and if that’s what you’re looking for, the approximate cost is around £75 per week. However, if you want to know what points to consider before committing to hiring or purchasing forklifts, we have listed them here for you.

Does your business suffer from Parkinson’s Law of Triviality?

By |December 9th, 2014|Beno, Latest News, Public Relations, Windsor|

Best known for his adage, “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion” former 1950s civil servant, C. Northcote Parkinson, has passed into business folklore as a wry observer of corporate culture. So much so that the law has even gone global, as Mikhail Gorbachev observed in 1986, when Alessandro Natta complained about a swelling bureaucracy in Italy, “Parkinson's Law works everywhere".

Mysterious Interweb Days

By |July 31st, 2014|Beno, Fun Stuff, TB Marketing|

It's sometimes easy to forget how exotic and mysterious the Internet seemed just a few years ago. Rummaging through the archives I found this little beauty from a 1997 issue of the Yorkshire Post business supplement, quoting me on my searching prowess. Judging by the amount of fax-related ads in the issue, the YP were obviously a little behind the curve when coming up with this story. It came about when trying to get a bit of extra coverage for my old friends at Toyota, but the journalist was more interested in the magic box that allowed me to find a set of public accounts. My reaction now, and probably then too, was something like "The Yorkshire Post! They actually ran this?! Wait a minute, 'tech-head'?!" Now I don't know which comment to be impressed about the most, my sweeping [...]

Around The World In 80 Emails

By |September 4th, 2013|Advertising, Beno, Design, Public Relations, TB Marketing|

:Ten Tips For Working With Overseas Clients A few years ago (okay it was 17), the ad agency I was working at belonged to a formal international network of agencies that would rely on one another if a client wanted work doing in more than one country. Well, that was the plan at least. Perhaps the Chairman got a nice weekend break out of it, but otherwise it was impossible to maintain much of a relationship with 20-odd other overseas businesses, and as far as we could tell, the things we had in common, other than belonging to the same network, were nil. Being able to produce consistently good work was tough, especially when the international work was like a French steak, pretty rare. […]

Smile, Baby!

By |August 27th, 2013|Beno, Public Relations, TB Marketing|

There’s something odd about the latest iPhone ad. It shows cute kids and quirky Asians taking pictures, ending with the line “Everyday more photos are taken with the iPhone”. Nothing greatly odd about that you might say, but the copywriter in me was waiting for a ‘than…’ Mainly because ‘everyday more photos are taken with every type of smartphone’, and without the ‘than…’ it makes you think well, the next ad feasibly might say, ‘Everyday more calls are made on phones.’ Sure enough, the US version of the ad has a “than”, and a surprising one at that.
