Exciting times at Ditto!

I've been a bit quiet on the blog front recently. I do apologise, it's very remiss of me. But there's some pretty exciting stuff going on at Ditto HQ this month, and it's left little time for blogging! Let me fill you in... If we've met in person you'll know that one of my favourite parts of my job is the diversity of our work and the different clients we get to work with. So far this month we've helped a client prepare for his appearance on Dragon's Den, created a brand identity for a family-run blinds company, worked on copywritingΒ  for a tour guide business (one of our winners at the Sevenoaks Business Show), designed a gorgeous new brochure for a performing arts tutor (blog post to come!) and worked on umpteen print jobs for a mix of new and existing clients. Aside from this, I've been spending as much time as possible with my new horse, Willow. She's absolutely gorgeous (Cob x Percheron for those in the know!) and suffice to say I'm head over heels in love with her. It's lovely to be back into the horsey world since I lost my beautiful Arab in March, and thank you sooo much to everyone who took the time to send their best wishes at the time.I couldn't resist sharing a picture of her, so here she is:

But back to business. I'm really excited (and a tad apprehensive!) to announce that as of June I'll be writing a monthly column in the Kent & Sussex Courier to share marketing advice for small businesses. I love working with businesses on their marketing, so I'm relishing the opportunity to get my teeth into this new project. So this is your chance to tell me what to do for a change (rare I know!) - what would you like to see in my column? What sort of marketing challenges to you face in your business?
