Radio Advertising

Many consider this method of advertising to be too expensive for most small businesses unless you have a budget for brand awareness campaigns.
However we were recently called by JACK FM in Oxford offering a revenue share option to help promote our products. No upfront costs, the same coverage and shared revenue on successful campaign sales only.
So if you have an attractive offer for their listeners, then it may be worth speaking
for more information.

Pathfinder club

The Pathfinder Club gives you structured time to work on your business with other like minded business owners.
It is a platform for business owners to further develop their business, to maximise profit, create a motivational environment and help you take the business to the next level.
A recent meeting of the Pathfinder club focused on goal setting, where John Harris shared his knowledge and tools to help the members effectively plan their business and personal goals. The peer group discussions then helped fellow members to find solutions for potential obstacles for the achievement of those goals.
To find out more about the Pathfinder club or attend a meeting with no obligation, then visit the club web site at

Keeping financial records

Maintaining proper accounting records is vital in terms of monitoring how well your business is doing.
A good financial system will be able to tell you how profitable your business is and easily track monies owed to you or the liabilities you are due to pay.
At A1 Financials, we are asked what a good financial accounts system should include and we advise
• Day book (ins & outs)
• Sales invoice template
• Sales invoice record and file
• Purchase invoice record and file
• Bank statement file
• Petty cash book
• Credit card management
• Asset register
• VAT returns
• Other records personal to your business
