What marketing has actually worked for your online business? | 07/31/2014
I have an online clothing and accessories store, we've tried loads of different marketing over the years and nothing seems to be profitable. Are we alone here, has any other online stores actually found any marketing that has been profitable?
We've tried SEO, Google Adwords, Bing advertising, PR (both online and offline magazines), sending products for review to related blogs, comic cons, polyvore, facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram, banner ads, adverts in offline magazines,...

Can anyone recoomend online schduling software? | 07/31/2014
Does anyone know of software that exists for making appointments online but that recognises a set amount of time has been allocated to the customer (lets say 5 hrs) and as each customer makes online appointments (let say they are 1hr, 15 mins, 30 mins, etc) that once each appointment is made, it depletes the allocated time remianing so they can only book appointments subject to having enough time, and if they want to buy more time, they can do, either within this system when logged into...

Appointment/Scheduling Software??? | 07/31/2014
I am currently looking to find a good software that can book appointments for a room based rehearsal studio for multiple rooms. It would need to be user friendly and preferably with a customer/contacts system to track customers. Any other features would be useful, for instance accounts tracking or online booking but not essential.
Any pointers or help will be useful.
Have hit the 'wall' | 07/31/2014
Having been made redundant recently I have decided that working for myself and building my own small business is now something I want to pursue and focus my efforts on. I am looking to start an ecommerce business on a shoestring (£250 or so), and my initial expectations are to be able to realise a turnover of about a few hundred pounds per month profit to start. Just to be clear, I am not looking for ideas, but would be fantastic to get others' experiences who perhaps were in a similar...

"Official" Start Up Help | 07/31/2014
Hi all, first post.
After a bit of help in getting off the ground, officially. Been into framing sports gear for a few months but now I think it's time to go for it properly alongside my job in Retail Management.
I've been reading a few things on here tonight, and doing the framing as a Sole Trader add-on to my main job seems the best bet (I think), however to make things a little complicated there will be two of us doing the framing equally - how do I go about this? (Partnership Agreement?)...

General help for a newbie please :) | 07/31/2014
Hi there, little bit of background, I am mid 30s a fully qualified electrician, but aged 27 I had a heart attack, so the idea of working with electric lost its appeal.
Not long after I became my grandmothers full time carer, she has recently passed away and I was at a loss what to do, so I have started my own business. Now I could do with some advice if possible, I have probably gone about this all wrong, so please be gentle with me
Have started a gutter cleaning and pressure washing...

People leaving at the checkout page on my website | 07/31/2014
Hi Ukbusiness forums,
I have a website ecommerce store and, when I check google analytics I can see that on most days I get around 700 Visitors to my website per day and around 10 people going to the checkout page, but only 3 of those 10 people actually finish with the checkout. Does you know reasons why this could be? Thanks for the help.
