'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

Nowadays, offline marketing can quickly get forgotten in favour of the latest social media campaign. However, before you rush to record that viral video, it’s important to realise that many of the approaches that worked 50 years ago are still a great way of bringing in new clients and customers.
Combined with your digital marketing efforts, the following four ways are sure to help you get more eyes on your business.
When used right, LinkedIn and Twitter are great ways to make connections and promote your brand. However, there’s no question that meeting someone in person is still the most effective form of networking.
Whether you’re exhibiting at a trade show or attending a conference, you should always come prepared with some giveaways that will keep your brand in people’s minds. However, think beyond the usual offering of cheap pens and forgettable business cards if you want your brand to stand out.
In their pick of 2017’s biggest promotional product trends, the Delta Marketing Group recommends that you ditch the big batch of cheap and cheerful freebies and instead target high-priority leads with high-quality promotional products. Think about what kind of item the person you’re targeting will genuinely find useful and spend a bit of money getting it branded up.
Whether you’re a freelancer pitching potential clients or a retailer promoting your new product line, you should think again if you believe you’re going to generate many sales through cold emails. If you want to stand out from the crowd and get your product or service noticed, then take things offline. You’d be surprised how effective printing off the exact same sales letter you were going to send by email and posting it instead can have.
When it comes to marketing, it’s easy to overthink things. In a world of tweets and emails, sometimes picking up the phone can be the most effective way of communicating with your target audience.
Next time you find yourself writing an email to a potential customer or client, consider whether you could deliver that message more effectively over the phone. In the digital age, not many people take this approach any more, making it a simple way to set yourself apart from the competition and grab your target audience’s attention.
This gives you access to a range of services to help you find new customers, build profile and deliver high quality integrated marketing campaigns.
