I’d like to say a big thank you to Kath at Spike Design. Kath was very responsive and helped me to put together a brief for the design work required. We had some ideas of what we required but FBN member Kath worked her magic and brought them to fruition.We are so pleased with our new posters and postcards designed by Kath! I can highly recommend Spike Design

Thank you Kath!

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.

Thank you to FBN member Stephen Corney & Modern Magazines for your advice and guidance regarding advertising in your local magazines. Our new offering of external cleaning services has provided us with an opportunity to advertise to local residents. An audience that we have not previously marketed ourselves to.

Modern Magazines has given us the opportunity to reach those that our social media platforms will never speak to. We can really see the value in this more traditional marketing tool and it will certainly continue to be part of our marketing strategy where appropriate.

Many thanks again

I recently met Kath through Ferndown Business Network and immediately knew she was an expert in her field. Having recently launched my new business Veteran Entrepreneurs I needed to come up with a creative and vibrant logo that epitomised my business from a first look. We booked a quick call and before I knew it Kath at Spike Design was helping me understand what my business was about which helped her understand what my logo should ’say’. With a really quick turnaround within a couple of days we had the first drafts and with Kath being a perfectionist we worked on a couple of iterations. I now have a great logo which ’speaks’ about our business.

I can’t recommend Kath at Spike Design highly enough, she is engaging, easy to work with, and keeps working until you are happy and the job is done. Thanks Kath !

Ferndown Business Network member Just ask Juli is a fantastic idea and is delivered with a high level of professionalism and has a service focused ethos.  Juli has been working with me on a weekly basis for a few months and I am so pleased to have come across her when I did.  Recently, I was required to step back from my business unexpectedly due to illness and Juli has been able to keep on top of the administrative tasks and keep the impact on my business to a minimum.  Juli stepped in and with minimal training and direction she has understood exactly how she is best able to support my business.  As I am now fully recovered we are exploring other skill sets that Juli has that I can also benefit from namely, marketing, training, client retention and compliance.  Juli’s contribution to me and by business has truly improved my wellbeing, strengthen my business and has allowed my business to stretch to the next level which was not possible without her support.

I joined FBN when I moved to the area three years ago. Apart from getting business it’s great to be able to give other people business too.  

Every third week we do ‘networking with a difference’ which is always different and great fun. Building towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows was my favourite 😀 I really look forward to getting up early on a Friday.

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.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve continually networked as it’s been the life blood of success in my business career.

There are a lot of networking opportunities in the area (I ran 6 venues for over 4 years) so it’s important that you choose the ones that are right for you. FBN attracted me for 3 main reasons.

1. It’s relaxed, it’s good fun, it’s very friendly but still professional.

2. Unbelievable value for money

3. Genuine referrals from within the group. It’s the reason that there’s a waiting list for new members.
