Ferndown Business Network - helping you build your business the friendly way.

I joined FBN in September 2019 as I had just started up my business. I hope to learn about the other services available within the group and get my business promoted from within.

I’ve found the group to be welcoming, light hearted but professional and supportive.

Since the first lockdown in 2020 everyone seemed to be scrambling for space on the internet. Businesses were competing for what appeared to be real potential to advertise and sell online. 

At Physio Fitness we have a good website and a reasonable social media presence. We have done plenty of Facebook advertising and we have done other online marketing, especially to our own client base. However, after making the brave decision to take on a new full-time physiotherapist in August last year we felt we needed to ‘up our game’ marketing wise. I wanted to appeal to a certain market and I took the decision to go head-first into a more traditional advertising route by using the excellent ‘Modern Magazines’.

Wow, has this worked! Robyn, our new physio, like all of us, is full and has a waiting list! We now need to take on another physio!

Alongside some traditional bill-board advertising, the magazines have been instrumental in a significant upsurge in new clients…we know because we monitor where they come from.

We Plan to advertise in Modern Magazines on an ongoing basis and would like to send out a massive thank you to Debbie, Stephen and the team.

I recently had some new business cards designed by another FBN member, Kath at Spike Design and asked Harry Bidgood at Anything Printed if he could sort out the printing at short notice as I was attending a national conference. Harry stepped up to the plate, worked with me with the proofs and delivered ahead of schedule and of the highest of standards. If you need any printing doing, Harry must be your first point of call. He works tirelessly, often against tight timelines imposed by people like me who do not take that into consideration when planning such things. I highly recommend Harry at Anything Printed.
