December 5th sees the return of Small Business Saturday, the one day of the year where customers are encouraged to rebel against the retail chains, overlook the massive online shops, and buy from local stores instead.

This year marks the eighth anniversary of the event, and all small businesses are being encouraged to get involved, from family butchers to online sellers.

And this year’s event takes on even more significance as it’s set against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic and comes just as the UK comes out of nationwide lockdown. Small business owners arguably need your custom now, more than ever.

The theme this year is to “Find your local hero” – if this sounds like something that could give your business a boost, here’s how to get involved…

“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men/Gang aft agley” so wrote Robert Burns in 1785 – and it’s a verse that has stood the test of time, as no matter how through your plans, things can still go awry.

And although using ConferenceCall.co.uk to set up a conference call for up to 100 participants could hardly be easier, there’s always the possibility not everything will go to plan and some people might miss the call.

Even setting a free SMS reminder isn’t fail-safe.

And while we can’t guarantee not everyone will be able to make the conference call, we can guarantee that no-one need miss a word thanks to our free conference call recording facility.

You can now record your conference calls to distribute to those that couldn’t attend or even just for archiving purposes – all free of charge and without the need for any extra equipment.

There’s more than one way to make a conference call, from video conferencing to straight up multi-participant phone calls, and more than one provider to choose from, but what you’ll find with many operators is they’ll either charge for the service, ask you to sign up with them, or both – this means they’ll then have access to your data and may even sell it on to third parties who will then bombard you with emails and phone calls for other services.

That’s not the case with ConferenceCall.co.uk – all you and your participants need to make a conference call to anywhere in the world is a landline or a mobile.

There’s no sign up. No fee to pay. And you can make great savings on the cost of conference calling to anywhere in the world.

So, to help make sure each conference call you hold is completely fuss-free, follow our simple, step-by-step guide.

Brexit jargon-buster – from A to I is here

It’s been 119 weeks since we published the following paragraph, and Russian interference in the UK is still in the news and no deals of any note have been struck with the EU…

Brexit news seems to have been put on hold as the government deals with claims that its most senior officials may have jumped the gun in blaming Russia for the Salisbury poison attack, after UK experts claimed they can’t yet prove that the novichock nerve agent used actually came from Russia.

And it’s now been 31 weeks since the UK left the EU – we’re more than halfway through our transition period and still no clearer on what will happen come December 31 this year.
