What You Get

You get to promote your business over 20,000 small business owners every month through our online platforms, articles and website - www.ybkbs small business magazine for business owners

The chance to promote your business to 20,000+ small business a month and GROWING

AT YBKBS, Marc Ford MBA, the creator of the platform has set a vision that within 5 years, this platform will be the #1 Go-To-Platform for small business owners looking for daily news, interviews, features, articles and guidance on how to be MORE than just a small business.

The UK’s current GDP has over 40% driven by small business and yet larger media networks fall on the side of large, big corporate businesses and their trials and tribulations, or much more a micro-view, pay-to-be-written about type formula at the other end.

Our greatest value is to help as many small businesses as possible in the UK to become MORE than just a small business. So we want to team up with you to offer your goods and services to the small businesses of the UK KNOWING this is what drives you too.

We will help you with your marketing through the platform and be in contact with you looking at click through rates and content management. We won’t just take your money and run. YBKBS and you, will be stronger together and this is just the first step in us helping you, to help other small business in the UK.

Quite simply we hate that too…

So, just drop us an email below and let’s chat, email, text whatever you want and let’s see if we can help UK Small Businesses be brilliant, together.

What is This “Culture” Thing, Anyway? (And What Does it Mean for Small Businesses?)

Chances are, if you follow business news at all (and we assume you do if you’re reading this platform!) you will have heard a lot about Brewdog in the last couple of weeks. 

Without rehashing the whole situation, here’s an executive summary: dozens of former employees signed an open letter accusing the craft beer firm and its co-founder James Watt of fostering a “culture of fear.” Ex-staff members claim they were bullied, treated like objects, and that the company’s culture was “toxic.” You can read more in this excellent piece by Kalyeena Makortoff and Rob Davies for The Guardian.  But following this sage got me thinking: what is this “culture” thing we hear so much about, why does it matter, and how does it pertain to small business owners?

Lockdown is Extended. What Now?

From Bond Street to High Street to Your Street, How CoVid Changed Fashion for Everyone

Some say everything needs to be online. And they have led you to believe that everything is now actually online and you won’t succeed unless it is. Yet, as we look across the business landscape at how customers and clients are coming back to businesses, there is still a very healthy demand for face to face contact and relationship building.
