You're just starting out. You have big plans for your new company. You know you can take over the world but you just need people to take notice. They’ll soon see the value of your product/service. But the thing is…budget. You don’t have one. What’s a future Peter Jones to do? (Which doesn’t mean mass humiliation on Dragons’ Den?)
Here's my top tips for marketing on a budget.
New year, new start. It’s that time of year when we’re starting diets, spring cleaning, trying to get on board with our new year’s resolutions, and generally starting afresh. Clearing out the cupboards and the recesses of our minds to march into 2018 with new resolve and clean slates. It feels good, doesn’t it? But do you apply that thinking to your business?

Facebook has been making a few changes lately and all for the better. It has introduced a snooze button, so you can mute people, pages or groups for 30 days which means you can hide all the ‘xx sleeps ‘til Christmas’ updates. Good enough reason alone, I’d say. It has also scrapped the stalker feed on the right-hand side which told you what posts your friends were liking and commenting on, in real time. This means you’ve no choice but to stop stalking your ex-boyfriend. But stop it anyway! It’s not good for your health. And we know this to be true because Facebook did the research. Their own research found that spending too much time browsing Facebook is bad for your mental wellbeing.
To be honest, I just wanted to find an excuse to use the word discombobulate. It’s great, isn’t it? But not one we use every day, so just to be clear, it means to confuse, befuddle, or perplex. I’ve decided it’s being added to my daily vocab from now on. Thinking about a confusing word that means to confuse got me thinking about other confusing words, naturally, and just how many examples of similar words there are in the English language that are often confused.
