We’re about to take a festive break and recharge our batteries ready for 2013.
Looking back at all the blogs, articles and news stories we’ve published in the past 12 months, it has been a transformative year. We’ve seen social media for business become mainstream, mobile commerce has taken off, crowd-funding has been game-changing — and we survived the Cookie law change!
Throughout the year, we have endeavoured to provide content that entertains and inspires as well as informs — content that can help you run your business better.
And so huge thanks are due to all our experts and blog writers that share their wisdom and experience so generously.
We’d also like to say a big thank you to you — the UK’s hard-working entrepreneurs and small businesses — for visiting us throughout 2012 and for all your comments, posts and tweets.
Here is our pick of the ten best blogs of 2012:
Robert Clay: What Picasso can teach you about pricing
Mike Southon: The perfect elevator pitch
Sharon Tanton: 50 shades of content
Bryony Thomas: Ten signs that you could do with strategy marketing advice
Robert Peters: What good wine can teach you about your small business
Sara Drawwater: Nobody cares about you or your website
Mark Bower: Social media — a cautionary tale
Lisa Turner: Ten ways to spot an egomaniac in your firm
Mark Stiving: Pricing is self-grading
Robert Craven: Ten ways to keep you customers happy (and make money)
Happy Christmas and see you in 2013!
