“I just wanted to thank Bright Cat for coming to the rescue and for taking a massive weight off my shoulders. Before I met them one of my pet hates was trying to organise monthly email newsletters. However, this was vital as part of agreements we had with exhibition organisers that The Move For Wellness would send out a minimum of 3 emails prior to any exhibition. In addition to the emails, we were also expected to Tweet about the event and while I understand about Tweeting, email marketing is a total mystery.
Since bringing Bright Cat onboard I know that this is no longer a headache or even nuisance as they are looking after this.
They have also taken control of posting our daily films on YouTube, resulting in an increase in our Global audience. However, they bring more to the table as I learned very quickly as they fully understood what the Move For Wellness was trying to achieve and has become integral part of the team.
Bright Cat are a brilliant addition to any campaign or company”

Worked with Bright Cat following the business success awards and they have helped me integrate all of my emails and tech difficulties into one platform that is easy to use. They are always available to answer queries and I can highly recommend their work. Thank you!

Love your approach and the pleasure of meeting your parrot friends.
Would highly recommend Bright Cat Business Solutions, many thanks Rose and Mark
Jo understood what I wanted and did the job promptly. Thanks Jo!
Jo is incredibly efficient, professional and knowledgable when it comes to all things tech. If I could have her as a full time VA would.
Refreshing, very helpful and highly efficient resource. Bright Cat assessed what I needed and seamlessly filled the gap. The outcome was a load of persistent social media marketing that I simply was never getting round to doing it myself and they were able to do what I needed in the time we agreed.
Bright Cat Business Solutions was a dream to work with. They helped me sort out some long overdue filing admin as well as researching new systems for me. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them and look forward to working with them in the future as I grow my business.
Bright Cat made me a Wedding Planner. I shared the wedding planner with a group im with that are all in the wedding industry… they absolutely love it and they were very complimentary around the design of it so hats off to you.. you made me look amazing, thank you again
Must give a massive shout out to Bright Cat Solutions. They fully understood what we needed doing and was brilliant in the execution and definitely booking them again.
Jo is amazing. She got inside my head and put a document together that I just couldn’t. This document will now be a huge asset to my organisation and to every single one of my clients. Without Jo this wouldnt exist. I will definitely be using her services again. Thanks Jo
Jo has been “managing” and filing the emails in my inbox – which is a poison chalice really. She is efficient and well organised, with an attention to detail. I could not have managed this task without her.
Bright Cat has been brilliant in producing a regular report that I know I needed but didnt have the time to do. Thanks
I highly recommend Bright Cat Business Solutions. They were able to help me with some edits to my website and advise on the best plugins and systems to use. Thankyou for all your work!
Bright Cat has been as absolute godsend. I fit the non techy woman profile perfectly and they have helped me setting up new systems and sorted out a whole plethora of stuff, with ease and expertise. Highly recommend Bright Cat Business Solutions!
I have found Jo to be approachable, professional, efficient and straight forward. Although I try not to be, I am a bit scared of the back end of my website. . .and she is helping me with top tips as well!
I really appreciate the flexible way that she tackles the tasks that we agree to work on. She has mainly focussed on streamlining my business web site, making it faster to load, keeping it up to date and helpful for my ideal clients. And most useful of all – more easily found by Google!
I highly recommend Jo as a VA – especially if, like me, you are running a small business and are spinning lots of plates. Jo will help you to keep them all up in the air!
I’ve been working with Bright Cat over the last few months and I would highly recommend their services. If you are looking for efficiency, flexibility and a hassle free relationship, they are definitely the one for you.
No job is too big, small or bespoke! We are a small business and have a myriad of diverse jobs that need done.
Bright Cat took on everyone of them with ease. Every time they wrote back saying how much time it had taken, I was always astonished at the speed. Bright Cat is money well spent and worth every penny! They just makes your business life easier in every way. Thank you!
Jo is amazing, quick learning and adaptable to whatever I throw at her. Her skill set has been crucial to me and my business to facilitate my growth, and enable me to learn to delegate a bit. Having been self-reliant for so long. If you’re on the fence about a VA – don’t hold back. Just go for it!! I’ve no Regrets!
Jo is brilliant! A technical VA who really knows how to support businesses positively, through professional administration services, saving them time and money.
Everything is possible with Jo, who is now an important part of my marketing and business development team. She really is brilliant and totally professional. If you have been thinking about getting admin, va, pa, business organisation, technical support, online marketing materials and more.
I highly recommend you give Jo a call, she has an array of packages and options to help you streamline your business with better admin solutions and more. Thank you Jo!
Jo was introduced to me by my Marketing Coach. Jo works with her directly but more than just a VA.
She’s highly knowledgeable, quick and thinks outside the box which is a strength a lot of people don’t have. She’s creative. I would love to have Jo to be part of my team as my business grows.
Jo, created my landing page, it was done before you can say the word Superwoman! I would highly recommend her.
Jo has been managing my LinkedIn and YouTube for several months and both have never looked better – and I’m seeing more traffic and more engagement.
I needed help moving an automated series of emails from Mail Chimp to Mailerlite, these included landing pages from my website, being an absolute tech novice I turned to Jo for help! She every quickly got the job done and got everything sorted for me! A total star that made my life so much easier!
The advice and support that Jo offered at my business startup was invaluable. I would definitely have struggled without her wisdom and practical help.
Thank you Jo O’Neil for opening my eyes to the possibilities of MailerLite for keeping in touch with my mailing list.
I’d always been a Mailchimp girl -but with several data breaches from them, I was easily swayed!
Mailerlite is even easier to use – and my open rate was higher too!
I think I’ll be booking Jo in for some additional training to see what else I need to know about it!
Jo was very patient and flexible, followed through on tasks and easy to talk to. Thanks.
Friendly, innovative and efficient solutions presented. Definitely would use Bright Cat again. Highly recommended.
I met Jo through a networking group and have spoken to several VAs regarding a particular project. Jo came out head and shoulders above the rest. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results; Jo went above and beyond to solve a problem that cropped up. I recommend Jo and would use her again.
I recently had a 2 hour social media strategy and planning session with Jo. For a long time I’ve felt overwhelmed and not clear on how to utilise my social media accounts, or even what to post.
After this session with Jo, I have such a clear picture of what to do and when – no more overwhelm!
Thank you Jo – your advice, guidance and time has been greatly appreciated, and worth every penny!
Great service, designed some new templates for our social media posts, done in record time as well.
Fast, efficient and fantastic end result! Thank you Ben and Jo!
Also Ben recently created some fantastic images for me to use in an upcoming campaign. Friendly, fast and efficient service. Thanks Ben!
Excellent admin help and much more!
Some people absolutely love networking.
The anticipation of not knowing who you’re going to meet. The thrill of getting to meet new people and build new connections. The knowledge you gain from listening to other people’s business experiences. The rush you feel from explaining your business proposition to someone who is genuinely interested.
But for people who are naturally introverted, the thought of going to a networking event, or even joining an online networking session can give them butterflies in their stomach and a sense of nervousness.
There are lots of statistics out there about the positive return on investment of email marketing. Some studies suggest that businesses can expect an ROI of up to 4400% from email activity. .
And from my perspective, there’s an element of truth to these positive reports.
From all the cross channel marketing campaigns we’ve been involved in at Bright Cat, we’ve typically seen that email marketing has the strongest ROI amongst the different channels.
But how impressive the ROI figures are really depends on how you calculate it, and the costs you take into account.
In this article, we’ll go through the basic steps for calculating your email marketing ROI to give you a picture of how your email marketing is performing.
Are you spending a lot of time and money on your online marketing?
If so, you’re likely obsessing over bids, targeting, and creative design. But how much attention are you giving to pages where your traffic lands – the very place where conversions happen?
You’re not alone if you’ve been focusing mostly on the ‘ad side.’
Yet, the effectiveness of your landing pages can make or break your marketing ROI.
Email plays an important role in the marketing success of many small businesses.
It’s cost effective, easy to get set up, and typically delivers the highest return on investment of any marketing channel.
But what we can do in this article is look at some of the considerations you might want to take into account before you decide on the ideal email frequency for your business, and also review some stats from the Direct Marketing Association to see what the most common email frequency is.
You’re busy. 23 unread emails in your inbox. Half a dozen people to follow up with. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.
You know that networking is important, but you simply haven’t got the time to take half a day out of the office to attend a networking event.
This is where online networking can help.
If you approach it in the right way, building an effective business network can help you cultivate lasting relationships, enhance your credibility and grow your business.
Networking is a little bit like marmite.
If you mention it to any small business owner, you’ll typically get a ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ response.
But however you might feel about it, there’s no doubt that it can be incredibly effective. In fact, 80% of professionals surveyed said they felt networking was essential to their business success.
With so many people engaging on social media, it presents a huge opportunity for businesses of all sizes to reach their target audience with social media marketing.
But you can’t just throw a few organic posts out there and hope for the best, treat social media as something that you look at when you have a spare minute, or set up a Meta ads campaign with a CPA objective and leave the algorithm to ‘do its thing’.
It often takes a strategic approach to deliver the kind of success you want to see.
If you mention LinkedIn to any small business owner, it’ll typically trigger the ‘marmite’ response – they’ll either love it or hate it.
But regardless of how you feel about it, it’s hard to dispute the fact that LinkedIn is an important social channel for business owners and those working in small, ambitious businesses.
