Website and branding

I am a psychology student at Portsmouth University and it is my vision to bring mental health into the modern times. To challenge beliefs and opinions of therapy, being supported without judgement and removing the clinical feel of a therapy room.

I am starting up my own therapy practice and am looking for some innovation and branding that will set my ideas above the rest, as there are many counsellors out there.

I need help with setting up a website, branding and then I will also be able to market myself with leaflets and business cards as a brand with a unique twist.

I hope this interests and excites someone to be helping me get off the ground…ready to take the plunge.

Please email up670911@myport.ac.uk for more information.

Thanks
Bianca

YouTube product reviewers

Cowin Music have a Bluetooth Speaker called Ark 4:1 which we successfully launched through Kickstarter in February. Ark 4:1 is currently retailing throughout Euronics stores nationwide in the UK, some other independent retailers and John Smiths bookstores. We are also selling Cowin Ark in Amazon UK and US. Cowin Ark is also sold direct to consumer via www.cowinmusic.com

We are looking to get powerful YouTube reviewers signed up to review Cowin Ark, and then publish their review video to their followers, and beyond. This will help create awareness for Cowin Ark and can be used tactically to generate high quality traffic into www.cowinmusic.com, which we hope to convert into customers

Scope of work:

Phase #1: Research the market and find all the top YouTube product reviewers for a product like Cowin Ark. The reviewers must have a large follower base and also be good for UK and European viewers. An important dynamic to consider when researching is that a YouTube reviewer is able to get around 20% likes on their video vs. views.

Phase #2: Report back to the Cowin Europe team, so they can review the findings and confirm they are happy with the targets identified.

Phase #3: Take the confirmed Cowin Europe list and outreach to the reviewers directly, asking for them to product review Cowin Ark. Find out the terms and conditions the reviewer has and when they are able to do/feature the review. Also check at this stage that they are happy to link back to www.cowinmusic.com

Phase #4: Secure Cowin Ark product reviews with the target YouTube reviewers, and report back to the Cowin Europe team with timelines and delivery information for the sample Cowin Arks

 

Payment provided.

Individual Threads

Hello All

I started this business at the University of Portsmouth in 2010 ish and after graduating and the friends who I was running the business with left Portsmouth the business fizzled out.

The business is Individual Threads (www.individualthreads.co.uk ) We won several enterprise awards at UoP and I have the business plan if you wished to look at this.

However little by little I got the website completed and am now wondering if there would be any students that would be interested in taking the business forward with me.

I am still running a printing company that I started in Mercantile house so the printing work can be done however the business needs a large number of artist for the business to thrive and no one knows more artists than yourselves and your students.

I am looking for a partner / partners that would be equal share in the company. There is no need for investment only the investment of time and energy is required.

This business was working well when I was at university however it needs the young and vibrant students at the core of it to make it work.

I have the printing business with a vast knowledge of marketing etc however i am unable to connect with students the way i used to when i was a student.

The business would look great on any CV for future and profits would be equally shared between all that get involved.

Look forward to hearing from you.
