We have just set up a Facebook page

Facebook had automatically created a page for System Culture Limited so we thought we should stake our claim…

What is Social Media and how can business it?

1: Social Media Means Social Networking
Social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, have become great resources for finding new customers. But to get these networks (especially Twitter) to work to your advantage, networking is crucial. Your prospective clients search for companies with similar interests and services to their own and support them by “following” them or “liking” them. The idea is that those companies will return the favour — ultimately leading traffic to both sites, and helping each company grow.

2: Update, Update, Update
The World Wide Web is more dynamic than ever these days, which means it’s becoming more and more important that your clients are frequently updating their sites. Fresh content keeps people coming back for more. Facebook fan pages need daily new content, and interactive websites such as a blog should be updated at least 3 to 4 times a week. While this may sound aggressive, clients will benefit by recognizing the importance of keeping their site content fresh — without it, people will stop visiting.

The smarter businesses outsource their blog content generation to companies who know how to extract the biggest impact with the least amount of words.

There are many pitfalls to maintaining your blog profile, an out of date blog sends out the wrong signals to your clients – have you gone bust?

Antique Market and Virtual Market place

Many thanks for your interest in

As you can see we are in the early stages of establishing ourselves as a physical and virtual market place.

This website is our initial marketing tool and will be backed up by physical marketing in the press, radio and through the use of flyers.

Our first physical market will be held in the historic pannier market in South Molton on Sunday 30th November. Access to the market provides traders with facilities to drive in, unload/reload and drive out. South Molton is a market town off the A361 link road from the M5 to Bideford. We will be advertising this market as a Christmas Special and seeking to encourage buyers to South Molton from across the South West and further afield.

We are limited to the number of stands we can offer but would welcome traders’ enquiries to sell their goods. It is essential that we get the correct balance of quality traders offering a range of items to appeal to the broad range of prospective buyers we expect. In order to protect against our reputation goods should be correctly identified and traders have a sound reputation within the trade.

As South Molton’s calendar of event continues to grow, we have pledged to help the various organisers, as we know just how much goes into getting these established.  But such events help everyone, by keeping South Molton’s profile high.  We also hope to help develop a loyalty card for the town and of course will be asking our members what other projects they would like to see SMBA become involved in over the coming year.”
