    Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 04-Apr-2018 02:00:00

    You’ll often hear the internet gurus say ‘content is king’ and that in order to be successful in the online sphere you have to share lots of relevant content.

    For some traditional business sellers, online marketing feels like the equivalent of walking around naked in public – you’ve got to show everything!

    This presents a real conundrum for business sellers because, as many of our clients know, being in business can involve dealing with commercially sensitive information.

    From the JPAbusiness Strategic Business Insights blog archives

    In this blog James explains how a business's online presence is assessed during the business valuation process. He also explains how 'online' factors - such as size and quality of a database - fit in with general business health factors when gauging a business's value.

    Google receives the ultimate compliment

    Workshop: The digital economy IS the economy [blog]

    Posted by James Price | JPAbusiness on 14-Sep-2016 03:50:00

    We have been sharing insights from our ‘digital marketing journey’ for the past three years.

    Part of that journey has involved determining what to prioritise in the digital marketing space to drive the greatest return in our business and so maximise our business value.

    While Barbara and I were in Boston recently, being shown around the HubSpot headquarters by our guide Rachel, we asked her how long she had been with the company and what she thought of working there.
