Our Thursday Thoughts are for writers today! We offer copywriting services at https://londoncreativedesigns.com/content-writing and we would love to share some tips that the legendary Sarah Waters gave:
Don't panic. Midway through writing a novel, I have regularly experienced moments of bowel-curdling terror, as I contemplate the drivel on the screen before me and see beyond it, in quick succession, the derisive reviews, the friends' embarrassment, the failing career, the dwindling income, the repossessed house, the divorce . . . Working doggedly on through crises like these, however, has always got me there in the end. Leaving the desk for a while can help. Talking the problem through can help me recall what I was trying to achieve before I got stuck. Going for a long walk almost always gets me thinking about my manuscript in a slightly new way. And if all else fails, there's prayer. St Francis de Sales, the patron saint of writers, has often helped me out in a crisis. If you want to spread your net more widely, you could try appealing to Calliope, the muse of epic poetry, too.

Here's some Monday Motivation for anyone who wants to create great business relationships and naturally find themselves around the right type of people. Have you ever noticed that similar types of people naturally just find each other and are drawn to each to other? This is because people are drawn to each others' energy. So, make sure you create the type of energy you want to attract.

As a web design company, we don't post about the websites we've designed enough! I don't know why; our clients seem to like our work, so why wouldn't we show it off to the world?! So, we've introduced Website Wednesdays, where we will showcase a project we're working on and explain why it's our chosen one.

This week, we've picked HIIT Cosmetics , since they are launching their Indiegogo campaign today, hoping to get enough backers to make their amazing new cosmetics range! Their make-up is specially designed for active women, so that they can tackle the hustle and bustle of life (whether it be at work, home or in the gym), whilst looking fabulous!

Our Tuesday Tip is on the subject of web design. Sidebars have been a popular choice for years, especially when it comes to designing blogs. However, things are getting bigger and much more visual. So, we suggest you say bye to sidebars and take advantage of the full screen!

Tech boss: Brexit will deter new start-ups

Transferwise, founded in 2011 in London, employs about 120 people in the capital and handles more than £1bn in transfers every month.

Taavet Hinrikus, chief executive of Transferwise, says uncertainty of Brexit means the UK is now not the best place to launch new fintech firms and that if the company were to start all over again, he would not have launched in the UK.

Marketing Tip: Analysis should be inherent throughout each and every marketing activity, from ads to campaigns to targeting consumers. Without constant analysis, we would not be able to see what's working, what isn't and how to implement new efforts.

The reasons behind Unilever’s marketing cuts

Recently, many large corporations are spending less and less on advertising. One of the major businesses that is doing this is Unilever. Unilever is cutting its ad-creation budget, and here's why:

More than half of LGBT+ community feels ‘invisible’ in advertising

With the world becoming more and more integrated, it is important that we keep in mind not only the majority, but also the minority. When creating advertisements or large campaigns, we CANNOT ignore any group.

More than HALF of the LGBT+ community feels as though they are underrepresented in advertising, specifically, they feel invisible. How can we change that?
