LawBite is an online legal platform that aims to address the issue of inaccessible law for SMEs. In summary, LawBite delivers simple, cost-effective quality legal services.
The LawBite platform hosts plain English legal templates (think conversational English) that cover the areas of law SMEs need. The platform has developed unique software tools that enable the user to edit, share with contracting partners, track changes, e-sign and store- essentially the whole contractual process in one place.
Wrapped around the portal is a virtual law firm that can deliver instant advice and drafting where needed at fixed costs.
The advice is cheaper because the virtual law firm does not have a partnership to feed or big overheads - the lawyers however deliver quality advice, most having at least 15 years experience from recognised legal practices.
Cifco Ltd are a firm of Independent Financial Advisors.
We offer quality services to both individual and corporate clients. Professionalism, expertise, reliability, honesty and integrity are the rock-bed of our culture.

Whilst offering the full suite of financial services for individuals and businesses, we also assist with the provision of staff benefit package for companies. These include Group Life and Income Protection Insurance, plus Group Private Medical Insurance.
Education seminars for employees can also be included and by adding something unexpected such Mortgage Benefit, it can make your company stand out to both existing staff as well as assisting with recruitment.

Jack Russell Debt Collection
A debt recovery company is more similar to a firm of accountants than most people think. All small to medium size businesses can undertake their own credit control and debt collection procedures, in much the same way as they can do their own bookkeeping and accounting. However, they are often not as effective because it is not what they specialise in on a day-to-day basis which is why third party intervention is a very successful tool.
Jack Russell debt collectors would not do their own accounts, so why do your own debt collection? As a national provider of such specialist services for thousands of businesses across the UK, Jack Russell can offer you an extremely cost-effective solution for customers who pay late. The unique offer of no collection, no fee provides you with a first class service, from letters to telephone calls to personal visits and most importantly a full legal service, including the issue of all County Court action and small claims; if required. You just pay your own court fees as you would if you took the action yourself but of course it is saving you considerable time and effort.
Marketing is an essential cog within any business that wants to grow. We understand that having an internal marketing department is complete luxury for any SME, yet a resource that would be extremely valuable.
Now that luxury can become a reality with Creative Pod. We become your internal marketing department looking after all of your marketing and creative requirements. Once we have developed a clear marketing objective and plan we have a monthly marketing meeting to outline all of the marketing activities that are to take place that month as well as any ''house keeping'' that needs to be actioned. That way we can ensure brand consistency, as well as continuing to spread your marketing messages month on month.
As your internal marketing department we can look after the following for you:
- Social Media Management
- Marketing planning
- Managing 3rd party suppliers
- Search Engine Marketing
- Company newsletters
- Creative copywriting
- Social media tweets & updates
- Business development
- Email campaigns
- Google Pay Per Click
- Monthly mailers
- Website updates
- Press Releases
We can become your internal marketing department from as little as 10 hours per month. Matt Turner, Director www.creativepod.net
A fun loving, passionate and recommended marketer since 2003. We dig hard to get London based SME clients qualified sales introductions via telephone marketing and email. Our ideal client is typically looking for contracts valued at £7,500 - £20,000. What makes us different? We use a secret sauce, data mining (the type used by Tesco), to predict how your next prospect is thinking, and the ranked order of their thoughts about your service. This steers the communication content in the way they expect to read and hear about it, which engages them more effectively, and results in a lower cost per qualified introduction and faster first results. A campaign marketer who galvanises community and stakeholder action to challenge fund managers and assist win outcomes for special-interest causes.
We move opinion, find your next sales introductions, and always measure and improve your results.

Organisation for Responsible Businesses
The Organisation for Responsible Businesses is a business membership organisation specifically for SMEs. It is pro-business believing it is essential that businesses are profitable and ensuring this must be the first responsibility. But profitability should not override all other considerations. SMEs account for 99% of all businesses and roughly half the workforce and half the CO2 emissions. It is quite obvious that, in order to maintain a reasonable standard of life for future generations, the SME business sector needs to start making voluntary improvements. It is also very apparent that, in doing so, SMEs could gain immense financial benefit. A win-win situation that far too few companies are taking advantage of!
Responsible activities are grouped in to 5 key areas:
- The Marketplace
- Values and Transparency
RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS = PROFITABLE BUSINESS, pursuing positive results for people, planet and profit - The Triple Bottom Line Jill Poet Head of www.orbuk.org.uk
