TARGET AUDIENCE

MAIN THEME: "Alternative Finance"

Our clients are retailers largely cafes, shops, restaurants. We help them find alternative finance / funding options such as merchant cash advances, crowdfunding, p2p lending like Zopa as they've been rejected by the banks for various reasons.

We want to provide tips and guides to help SMEs be better at their retail business. But it won't be run of the mill advice, we will focus on alternative, new and little-known ways to solve the common challenges of running a business.

Everything has to come back to theme that we're showing you different ways to do things.
For example,

BUSINESS MISTAKES: People running a business are brave, risk-takers and getting finance enables SME owners to scale a business, reach their goals, hire people, get office space, build websites. It also of course brings new headaches - you don't have the time to deal with taxes, paperwork, admin costs, payroll

Give tips on what NOT TO DO when making decisions on your finances in these areas and how you can scale/outsource the admin in little-known ways.

ALTERNATIVE FINANCE INSIDERS: Covering breaking news and developments in the P2P, Crowd Funding and Merchant Cash Advance spaces (e.g. FSA Regulations). Or how to take advantage of new tax rules, regulations for SMEs or dealing with government changes that will impact businesses (workplace pensions).


NOTES

You would be responsible for the subject & headline of each blog post that relates to this theme

We are NOT looking for 'run of the mill' blog posts e.g. 'What is a X?', 'Beginners Guide to X'
We need to focus on the topics above - no marketing subjects.

Each headline needs to be encourage sharing, for example, the way in which Buzzfeed or Mashable stylise their posts. e.g. '5 Ways to Do X'
Each post needs lots of sub-headings.

We are looking for someone we can establish a long-term partnership and would send you a similar brief each month that could increase in volume if interested.
