How to Boost your business with a Product Review

Product and service (you offer) reviews are one of the most effective forms of local advertising.  Basically, the content of these advertorials is couched like a newspaper editorial.

Should Hungary replace the Hapless Brussels economic disasters

WHAT RECESSION

When businesses fail it is easy to blame the recession or Covid-19.  In all but a few cases that argument doesn’t stack up.  Failure is more often due to complacency and miserable management.  Obliged by business appointments to occasionally visit a splendidly situated restaurant I disliked doing so as the service was excruciatingly bad.

Corporate bodies pay telephone numbers when acquiring or changing their logos.  No upstart rival, even if their product was superior, could hope to compete against established brand names.
