S.A. Brain Brewery.

Brains is the brand name of SA Brain & Co, a family-owned brewing and hospitality company based in Cardiff.

Over the last few years, the future of the famous Welsh brand has come into question, with the suggestion that the brewing operation of 150 different beers will move outside of Wales.

SA Brain exchanged contracts with Marston’s last year to operate 145 of its pubs in Wales after ongoing coronavirus restrictions placed Brains under significant financial pressure. The group has around 200 pubs in total across Wales and the southwest.

Last month concerns were raised, when Marston’s asked some pub Brains’ pub landlords to become self-employed.

A spokesman for the property advisory firm that is trying to sell the pubs on behalf of the brewery is said to have quoted ”This is a rare opportunity to acquire a large, high-quality package of public houses located in strong trading positions across Wales. They benefit from a secure income streamlet to an excellent covenant. We anticipate significant levels of demand as packages of this quality rarely come to the market.”

It comes as no surprise in light of the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic that the hospitality industry was hit the hardest and that a lot of businesses went bust, so it only makes sense that a brewery is selling off some of its assets.

People will still want to go to their favourite pubs for food and drink come rain or shine and have great nights out, hence this little gem should be snapped up pretty quickly.

This is a great opportunity for an offshore investor to take over some of the greatest pubs in South Wales.

www.MarketingCardiff.com

www.MARKETINGCARDIFF.com

I am pleased to announce that I have acquired www.marketingcardiff.com by a fluke.

It was not available last year as I am always looking for ways to generate more traffic, so I was surprised to see it on the IONOS marketplace and had to grab it.

SEO Link Wheel.

I am happy I have the dot com as I will have no use for any other domain extension, just in case anyone approached me regarding the .co.uk just saying… Furthermore, if someone then decides to develop the co.uk version there may be a reason to start a UDRP.

Website Development.

It is what came first the chicken or the egg scenario. I developed a website on a dot com (king of domains) long before any other counterpart.

Branding.

This domain will serve as another cog to my ever-expanding SEO link wheel. This domain is a keeper as it has played on my mind whenever I say ‘Cymru’ not everyone I speak to knows what the word means. It is the Welsh Word for Wales and as well as people not knowing how to pronounce it let alone spell it, may also find difficulty remembering it. Hence that is why I am excited to add an addition to my lead generation marketing strategies.

Obviously, the site is not fully developed as I only acquired it today but over the next few weeks, time permitting, I will build this site to accompany my default sites.

I have also kept my ‘Cymru Marketing’ Logo Initials where the (CM) stands for Cymru Marketing, whereas now the initials are reversed to Marketing Cardiff (MC). However had I re-designed the initials the M letter does not sit right on the letter C, hence I have left the lettering the same. As long as I get the traffic what’s a couple of letters in a logo. If anything it makes the logo even more unique and talked about after all ‘Cymru Marketing’ is here to stay and it will always be one of my default websites, with ‘Marketing Cardiff’ as an add-on.

The way I see it the logo is recognizable it has been around for a few years and people who recognize and relate to an image can memorize images symbols and logos far quicker than remembering words. People will see the logo and see it as a trustworthy source, so why confuse people with more than one logo, at the end of the day it is a personal preference and my decision. If anything the logo says that ‘Cymru Marketing Brand ‘ is behind ‘Marketing Cardiff’.

One has to remember that exact match searchable keywords and phrases domain names will rank your website far quicker and will secure global positioning providing you do your SEO correctly.

Having brandable made-up words, acronyms or personal brand names needs extensive Advertising and PR, whilst having searchable words people actively search for will save you money in the long run. Choose your domain names carefully and if you need some help with your SEO link wheel we will be happy to give you some free advice and do a free SEO audit report of your website.

As an example I have my own personal brand domain name www.renataentrepreneur.com but if people do not know who you are and have never heard of you before they are not going to be searching for you. Fortunately for me, I have been around for donkeys’ years so I am well known in certain circles.

Even if you are ranked for keywords that you have assigned in your meta description people are less likely to view your site as opposed to the and exact match searchable keyword or phrase domain name. You would have to be well known or a household name which can take a long time to achieve before people started to search for you.

Valuation.

The domain name www.marketingcardiff.com on estibot.com is according to the bot worth less than $100 but on Godaddy Appraisal Tool it is worth $904

To be honest, I rarely use these bots and whenever I am appraising a domain name. I do my calculations based on Google Keyword Planner and how many searches per month and the cost of the PPC bids would be. I then can advise that having a certain domain name would save the investor in advertising costs.

However, if the domain name has equity such as a product, service, website, and assets then you are talking about a different ball game, and even though I have no intention to sell this domain name my equity which these bots do not know about will increase the value.

40 Ways To Get More Business.

Advertising & Marketing.

40 Ways to Get More Business.

I have decided today to take a leaf out of my own book and practice what I preach.

With that said I am going to develop a directory of businesses and forums on my site where people can come and hang out. It is in the beta stage at the moment, watch this space.

I may even start a local periodical magazine.

There is a saying ‘If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain‘ arises from the story of Muhammad, as retold by Francis Bacon, in Essays, 1625: Mahomet called the Hill to come to him. … If the mountain will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet will go to the mountain.

In other words get people to come to you, rather than you going to them. Moving one stone at a time you will eventually move the mountain.

  1. Design and market a business blog. In fact I have several and use them as part of my SEO link wheel. Once you have decided what your blog is about you need to have categories of different topics people actively search for and want help with. Tip use keywords in your categories.
  2. Guest Blog on other peoples blogs. This will create backlinks back to your default site. Ask bloggers in your LinkedIn contacts if they would be happy publishing your articles. Find Blogs similar to your niche and gust blog post there.
  3. Write posts on groups and social media pages. It is a good idea to also have your own group and pages.
  4. Online Social Media advertising, you can have a Video or Squeeze pages which can help increase your total number of conversions while providing you with enough information needed to nurture leads into sales. This applies to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
  5. Adwords, obviously you need a budget for this and Google often do promotional incentives for first time users such as get £75.00 free credit if you spend £25.00
  6. LinkedIn Ads are similar to Google Ads the only difference is your LinkedIn ads will only be visible on LinkedIn. However because LinkedIn is a Business Platform this by far one of the best ways to connect and network.
  7. Offer online courses and sell your courses on site like UDEMY. Obviously the best place to sell is on your own websites and social media platforms. Put to together a “how to” course and teach people a trade.
  8. Local Workshops are a good way to network and get like minded people together. This can be done online although pending lockdown restrictions regulations this can also be a physical place to meet.
  9. Business Listings, if you already registered with Google My Business you should, make Google your friend and they will track you and rank you faster.
  10. List your business with all the main business directories, like Yell, Yelp. 192 etc.
  11. List your business on classified websites such as Cardiff Free Ads. Just type into Google search, Classified ads and you will get your answer through the search results.
  12. List your Business on Business Forums and Community websites.
  13. Post articles on Quora and Reddit.
  14. Post Articles on all you social media pages consistantly otherwise people lose interest and the more times your brand is visible the more popular you will become.
  15. Events. If you like talking, why not speak at events, talk about your product, brand, story.
  16. Host a conference, get people to come to you and get them networking.
  17. Partner with a competitor, that way you can help each other.
  18. Partner with a non competing business, that may benefit your skills.
  19. Go to Networking Events Hosted by Other people, this can be online and physical.
  20. Ask for referrals. Start with family and friends and ask them to share your business cards and social media shares with their connections, you will be surprised how many people will get to see your business. Gettting referrals and utilizing your network can be a quick and easy way to score more client projects.
  21. Set up a suppliers page on your blog/website and get people to advertise.
  22. Set up an affiliate marketing program and get other people to promote your business in exchange for a commission.
  23. Start a competition and get people to enter their details for a chance to win a prize.
  24. Giveaways, give an ebook away about your niche in exchange for an email, everyone loves to get something for free. Give branded merchandise away.
  25. Consider outbound marketing and contact people that may be interested in your product or service.
  26. Editorial Advertising, put an ad in a newspaper or periodical.
  27. Leaflet/pamphlet advertising and post them in your neighbourhood.
  28. Notice Boards in Supermarkets and coffeeshops, leave your business card or small leaflet. Leave your merchandise, keyfobs, pens, handsanitisers, pin badges, balloons, mini notebooks (This depends on your advertising budget).
  29. Wear branded clothing that has your website address visible in bold, this is advertising on the go.
  30. Design a magazine and get businesses to advertise.
  31. Have an advertising banner on your car you can get magnetic banners.
  32. Gift your family, friends and neighbours with branded merchandise such as fridge magnets, pens, key fobs, mini notebooks, branded facemasks. Give things that people will use rather than throw away.
  33. Give a trial offer to your product or service. If you give something for free your are giving people the opportunity to test and trust you.
  34. Sponsor an event or auction off something using advertising, marketing strategies.
  35. Get your brand in the news get journalist to write about you.
  36. Video Marketing, you need to be professional and make your videos top notch. I do not mean tik tok style. If it looks like you have spent money on video advertising it will look like you are successful.
  37. Vlogging, this a good way to have brand awareness, get your staff to contribute. Have a video the day in the life of driving instructor or graphic designer etc. People like to have some sort of idea how you manage a business which may give them inspiration.
  38. Influencers are people that use social media platforms to promote, their products or other peoples products and service. Hire models and take photos and videos of them using your products or services and then share on all the platforms or get influencers to promote your products or services for you.
  39. Write a book about your business or if you do not know where to start hire a writer that will write the book for you and then send it to businesses that may find your book useful. (You could have a book the day in the life of a …….).
  40. Do a publicity stunt, publicity stunts are an organised events designed to attract the public’s attention to the event’s organizers or their cause. Be unique and amaze your audience with a well thought through campaign.

Final Thoughts.

Nothing happens overnight, however, if you concentrate on social media and post banner ads eventually people will like and share and even buy. Be patient, stay focused and be consistent.
