We. Did. NOT. See. That. Coming!!!!! Today we have some very sad and shocking news for our podcast friends. You will not believe it! 😲 Listen carefully as we explain why we feel we could never trust Andy Morrell again.

It has made us feel sick, extremely low, disillusioned and yet it won't change how we wish to behave. We are so positive about the Business Profit Club's future and just because someone does this to you, it won't make us behave any differently. We are not into revenge or grudges. There isn't time to waste on people who behave badly. Learn from the experience and move on is how Nigel and Si view all of this!

BPC #29 - Smart door locks. Don't do anything until you've listened to this episode.
If you have a property that you rent out for short stays to people (you know, like Airbnb) then one of the biggest problems, pains and headaches is access to the property! Maybe you don't have that but you have an elderly relative who needs to let people in to the property such as carers and you live miles away. Or perhaps you need to let a neighbour in to the house whilst you are away. Whatever the situation the question is always: How do you give them a key? It is possibly THE biggest day-to-day headache for many of us. What do you do? Key safe on the wall? Wait for them to turn up and give them the key? Fly back from your holiday to let someone in?! If you have given someone a key, how do you get the key back from them? How do you let maintenance or cleaners in? The list of problems with keys - lost, broken, copied(!!), locksmiths, loads of keys, wrong keys, key management, security, time, travel, frustration, stress, etc is a real issue. Today though we have an answer to your prayers! Nigel T is joined by a locksmith, a lock manufacturer and a landlord to talk about the problems and the solution.

BPC #26 - "No one sees my posts..." Why you need to understand Facebook Newsfeed Ranking
Many people are bemused at the Facebook Newsfeed - Why do I see this? Why don't I see that? Why does no-one see my Page posts? Today's episode we use Facebook's guidance notes to explain the Facebook Newsfeed Ranking system and what it means to you AND how you could influence the number of people who see your content in the Newsfeed - all important stuff 😎 So this is what Facebook say... "We want to show you the posts that you care about" "Each time you visit Facebook, we try to show you the posts we think you'll find interesting. We prioritize posts that might spark conversations among people, like posts shared by people, Groups or Pages you interact with frequently. We don't always get it right, so we've also built controls to help you manage what you see in your News Feed."- The Facebook Help Team This is what Facebook say about what you see in your newsfeed..."What influences the order of posts in my News Feed?To help connect people to the posts that matter to them most, we use a process called ranking. News Feed ranking creates a personalized and diverse stream of posts from the people, news sources, businesses and communities you've connected with on Facebook.What influences ranking Some things influence ranking more than others, and some of the most important factors include: How often you interact with posts from friends, groups or Pages (friends and family are prioritized). If the type of post is something you often interact with (example: photo, video, link). The number of comments, likes, reactions and shares a post receives from the people and Pages that see it. Keep in mind that these posts are shared by the friends, groups or Pages you follow. How recently something was posted. Some things have a smaller influence over what you see. We may take into account signals such as how fast your internet connection is right now or what kind of phone you're using (because this can affect how quickly things can load on your News Feed). These are just some of the thousands of signals that may be considered for News Feed ranking.Manage what you seeYou can control what you see from your News Feed preferences or check your privacy settings. Some of the options for managing what you see in your News Feed include:Select a person or Page to see their Content first. Snooze a person, Page or group. Hide or unfollow posts from people, Pages or groups To see what influences the order of posts you're seeing in your News Feed: 1 Go to the post 2 Tap ...in the top right and select Why am I seeing this post?" So this should explain why you see what you see and how you can try to influence the organic reach of your posts! Hope you found that useful. Cheers for now Nigel, Si and Andy 🎯 PS We will keep you posted about the Facebook event we are going to...!

BPC #025 - Brexit Solved with a Chatbot BOOM!
Pain and Challenges - solving these for your customer at a profit is the basis of your business. But you need to understand who your customer is what their pains are and how you solve them.

Because we never ask or we make it difficult or we give customers a new challenge/pain to connect with us. That's madness and it's why we have created our Connxxus system to make connecting you and your customer as easy as 1 2 3. But what has this got to do with Brexit, Chatbots and Restaurants? Probably nothing but Nigel T, Si Si and Andy Morrell manage to weave them expertly together and produce another award-winning episode of the Business Profit Club Podcast Subscribe, review us and we will give you a shout out - even if your review is hateful and riddled with spite, malice and ill will 😂 email@example.com

BPC #024 - Advice, do you ever listen to it?
Advice. What do you think of it? Friends, family or strangers it doesn't seem to matter. We tend to ignore them, disagree or declare 'I know that'. Ever been guilty of it? We know we have! But as Nigel, Andy and Si start their Business Profit Club journey they have decided to open their minds to advice...and then ignore it!!! Haha. Not really. They are looking, listening and taking it all in. Why? Because there are people out there, amongst all the numpties, who know their stuff and are willing to share. They are the diamonds and you need to be willing to dig through the rubble to find them! In this episode the boys chat about mentors, coaches and what a new opinion can do for your business. All of which is to launch the Business Profit Club services - chatbots and digital marketing magic - to the wider world...BOOM www.businessprofitclub.co.uk and try a chatbot flow at https://tiny.cc/bpcrent

BPC #17 - How things morphed into a Q&A on Instagram live
So the plan was to explain what we are up to at the Business Profit Club! We managed to cover off most of the points but as we were recording the episode live on Facebook and live on Instagram we got distracted with a bit of a live Q&A session with a viewer in Florida! The upshot of this Q&A was to highlight our No. 1 point which was to help others - and we may be getting the Instagrammer on to the podcast at some point in the future to go through their marketing plans.

BPC #15 - What to do when life throws some sh*t your way
Sometimes the euphoria of setting those goals for the New Year has disappeared into the darkness of poor sales and bad cash flow. Things can seem bad, feel stressful and the doom and gloom stretches out in front of you like a tunnel with no end and no light. But there are things you can do to help overcome the situation and we chat about them in this episode. For Si Si the biggest turn around was in a book called The Vortex by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Whatever it is that you need to turn it around, remember you can reach out to us and we will always give you a hand up. You, me, us, everyone - you are only alone if you don't ask for support. Everyone at some point will need it. Relax, recognise the time might be now to ask for it and get the support you need. Nigel did go off at a tangent but the poetry is by Keats - melancholy is a theme because how can you experience the highs if you don't experience the lows!
