On-Line Business Tip: "Google My Business" (4)

Following on from last month, we are looking at how to use the free listing of your business on Google My Business. We enter via and then [1] click the "grid" icon near the top right. Click "My Business" at top right to go into Google My Business.

[2] Click the "Main Menu" (three bars) icon (shown near top left of the picture below), to reveal the menu. [3] Click Photos, the 6th menu item.  As shown in the picture below, you can (should!) add a cover photo, perhaps a video about your business, and possibly other photos. Since we live in a visual culture, businesses with visuals get more business!

Big Discount on Small Business Courses!

Our friend and teacher, the business guru Peter Carruthers, is offering some very special pricing on his courses for Black Friday.  He writes:

"Why on earth would anybody call the biggest shopping day of the year Black Friday?

It seems it was used to describe the heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic on the day after Thanksgiving in the USA. This usage dates back to 1961. Another explanation is that this day represented the point in the year when retailers begin to turn a profit. In other words, going from "in the red" to "in the black".

Whatever the reason, it’s become a feature of the commercial year.

This Black Friday I offer 500 coupons offering 66% discount on all my available courses. (The coupon code is BF2018). The courses on offer are:

These prices start now and end with the 500th coupon. Or at midnight on Cyber Monday, 26th November. (Whichever comes first.)

BTW, Cyber Monday started in 2005 as a way to inspire online sales after the Thanksgiving weekend in the USA."

All the best from Rick at,a,
