Google goes gambling

Document storage that doesn't cost a packet!

Google goes gambling
Most business people we know are getting pretty tired of the doom and gloom stories that seem to be standard fare served up by our media friends lately, but one little news snippet caused a smile recently.

Apparently Google are now prepared to run gambling advertising in the UK. In 2004, they introduced a worldwide ban on such advertising, but now have decided to change that in Britain after rules for TV advertising for bookmakers and gambling sites were relaxed.

Google reckon that it will 'enhance the search experiance for users' and it might well do, but poor growth figures over the last few quarters might also have something to do with it.


Welcome to the October edition.
  • Document storage that doesn't cost a packet!
  • Here's a great Scottish company that provides a service that just about any business will need.

    If your company has documents taking up space in your office because you know they will be needed someday, then get in touch with The Illand Company.

    They are specialist document storage professionals with a 540,000+ cubic feet purpose-built facility on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

    They will collect, barcode, register and store your documents in safe and secure storage. Then, when you need them, they can locate them in seconds and deliver them to you.

    The service is incredibly good value for money. We've just completed their new website, so have a look there and expect to be surprised. Or give them a call on 0131 663 5237.

  • Edinburgh Landlord Day
  • This month we were an exhibitor at the Edinburgh Landlord Day event.

    The exhibition, run by the Edinburgh City Council and held in the George Street Assembly Rooms is a great place to go for landlords and letting agents.

    It's held every year and this year there were over 30 businesses showcasing their property related services. We were promoting and demonstrating the Blot Property System for property management companies and letting agents.

    There is also a full seminar programme with lots of tips and information for letting landlords.

    so if you're in the property letting business, make sure you get there next year.

  • Business networking - visit our group!
  • Blot Design is a member of the most successful business networking group in the world.

    Each week we meet on a Thursday morning for breakfast and to exchange and refer business between our members. It's a great way of doing business (only one company from any business area can join, so there is no competition between members).

    If you think your business could benefit from networking like this, you're welcome to attend as our guest:

    • Thursday mornings
    • 6:45am
    • Novatel Hotel, Hermiston Gate, Edinburgh
    Our group is thriving. As it grows, the amount of business exchanged has increased dramatically. Get in touch if you'd like to come along and see how it works.
