We don't Provide Services to Make Money
Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs, are experts in their own field, but this field is not usually sales and Marketing. There is no reason why it should be. But this is an important skill for which larger companies can afford to employ a team.
Are You Wanting To Improve Your Sales And Profits and so your life?
Marketing is a process of building relationships with your potential customers.This is similar to the process you went through building relationships with your friends.
This process happens every time.
Once you understand this process you will be able to repeat for all new prospective customers (and friends).
We can help you understand this process.
At Beverley Hutton Marketing our goal is to help small/new businesses and entrepreneurs to do just that….
After being in marketing and running small businesses for over 40 years, our desire is now to pass on that hard gained, expertise to those making the journey today.
We work with individuals to help them achieve their goals rather than the companies they represent.
We find this approach is usually a major contribution to a small companies success.
There were 5.6 million small businesses at the start of 2018.
Compared with the previous year, the private sector business population fell by 0.5% (-27,000 businesses) whilst conversely private sector employment increased by 2% (+304,000).
This contrast is attributable to the number of smaller non-employing businesses falling by 1% (-50,000) but the number of larger employing businesses rising by 2% (+23,000).
The decrease in the business population is the first fall in the series, which started in 2000. However, there were still 2.2 million (+63%) more businesses than in 2000.
Small businesses accounted for 99.3% of all private sector businesses at the start of 2018 and 99.9% were small or medium-sized (SMEs).
Total employment in SMEs was 16.3 million; 60% of all private sector employment in the UK.
The combined annual turnover of SMEs was £2.0 trillion, 52% of all private sector turnover.
In 2018 there were 1.4 million employing businesses and 4.3 million non-employing businesses. Therefore, 75% of businesses did not employ anyone aside from the owner(s).
The overall business population includes three main legal forms: there were 3.4 million sole proprietorships (59% of the total), 1.9 million companies (34%), and 405,000 ordinary partnerships (7%).
Of the 5.7 million businesses, 45% (2.6 million) were registered for VAT or PAYE.
Between 2000 and 2017, there was sustained growth in the business population each year but most recently there has been a fall of 27,000 businesses (-0.5%) between 2017 and 2018. Nonetheless, there were still 2.2m (+63%) more businesses than in 2000.
The majority of population growth since 2000 has been due to non-employing businesses, which accounted for 87% of the overall increase.
Between 2017 and 2018, whilst the number of employing businesses increased by 23,000, non-employing businesses fell by 50,000, resulting in an overall decrease of 27,000 businesses.
The number of companies has increased in the last year by 31,000 (+2%) whilst the number of sole proprietorships and ordinary partnerships fell by 49,000 (-1%) and 9,000 (-2%) respectively.
I have had the immense pleasure of getting to know Bev and Ed from Beverley Hutton Marketing over the last two years, yet we have never met in person. As a new online entrepeneur finding my feet, Bev and Ed have offered me so much wisdom and guidance along the way. Bev has vast marketing knowledge and experience and Ed is an absolute wizz on the technical side of things. I know they are busy people, but I always feel they are there when I want help or questions answer. They have tremendous knowledge in all sorts of marketing, with a life time of real experience in place. They alway respond and support my journey on a very regular basis. I really cannot wait to meet them in person, sometime in the not to far away future. If you want geniune honest, reliable, innovative support in marketing whether online or offline, you will be in very good hands with Beverley Hutton Marketing.
Words that come to mind immediately are genuine, warm-hearted, knowledgeable...
Bev and Ed have been mentoring me as I establish my online business. They have provided not only technical advice, but also help understanding the mindset that’s required. Their kindness and generosity is indisputable.
Bev and Ed intentionally make themselves available to help anyone who needs it. As a result, they’re extremely busy, but Bev and Ed want to help each and every person to become the best they can be, so they always make time for everyone.
With Bev and Ed’s guidance, I’ve increased my skills and progressed much quicker than I had been previously.
I cannot recommend Bev and Ed highly enough.
Bev and Ed are the kindest, most selfless and generous people I've met in a long time, if ever!
They give their time when they don't need to and are there ready to support every newbie that comes through the door.
For those of us who need as much support as we can get, their help is absolutely priceless.The help they provide for us would take a lot of time to learn ourselves, so I wouldn't be where I am today without them! They are my adoptive parents xxx.
Whether you're a newbie in an online business world or you’ve run your business for a while, the world of Marketing can easily discourage you to go further in a matter of days.
Not with Bev & Ed though! The world of marketing evolves every day and Bev & Ed always stay on top if it. They're extremely knowledgeable in all things marketing – from Website building to PPC campaigns, to video creation. And they also help you get your mindset right!
They treat every person with compassion and kindness, they inspire, encourage, listen and support you when you feel lost and confused by all the marketing noise out there. They help you get on your feet and get clear on your goals in no time. This is exactly what they've been doing for me for the last couple of years, helping me on my journey of building my online business.
Be it Marketing messages or Tech support... When you work with Beverley Hutton Marketing team, you are never on your own and you are ALWAYS in good hands!
I frequently chat with Bev and Ed Hutton, a couple of retirees, who became online entrepreneurial enthusiasts!
They are friendly and welcoming from the very first day I joined the SFM Tribe!
I quickly felt at ease chatting with them and trust their advice.
They are always there for me, willing to answer any questions I might have, giving me helpful suggestions and yet never wanting anything in return!
If I ever think about a helping friend to help with my new business “Bev and Ed“ from Beverley Hutton Marketing are always first on the list. So many thoughtful things they did for me. From day one I have not been alone on this journey because I have had Bev and Ed, the most amazing, understanding, caring and selfless people I have met.
It can get tough sometimes working at home, alone on your online business. Reaching out to them always gives me instant feedback, help and encouragement which lifts me up and pushes all clouds of doubt aside.
I think the greatest gift you can give someone is your honest attention and your time.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to have met them.
"A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you."
We all want to become true leaders in life. But how would that look, how can this be achieved? Get to know Bev and Ed – and you will know.
Thank you, Bev and Ed, for your part in my journey. I am proud to name you my mentors.
Hi Bev and Ed,
I thank you for your patience as I am a perfectionist, the new dave-plummer.com site is spot on.
May I also say I have found your assistance invaluable, all be it I am a fairly seasoned person around the the internet, web sites frustrate the hell out of me. Your time given to me has made the process relatively stress free.
I will be back for more.
Cheers Dave P.
