CEO Summit 2015

Main Image
Depending where you’re coming from, being disruptive can be a good or bad thing. As a child sits in class, playing the clown and stopping those around him/her from learning, being disruptive is seen as bad. But in the competitive world of business, when ‘business as usual’ is no longer enough, being disruptive is an extremely good thing. Read more...

The importance of authenticity in business

Main Image
Authenticity in business is a fairly new consideration but it could help you raise your business head and shoulders above the competition. Trust in businesses has been in decline over the past few decades partly due to media savvy surfers being quick to write-off product features as marketing ploys designed to separate them with their hard earned money.

eBay UK delivery dates

Main Image
Late last week eBay announced some changes to their estimated delivery dates in the UK. It’s clear that the exact location of the buyer and seller will have an impact on the time something takes to be delivered. Imagine you’re sending to a customer in Inverness (the Scottish Highlands), it’s totally understandable that delivering to them will take longer than to a customer the next town over Read more...

St George Around The World

Main Image
The Irish have St. Patrick, the Welsh have St David, and the Scottish have St Andrew. And while the English don’t celebrate their patron saint’s day with a bank holiday, they have St George when houses around the country fly their red and white flags proudly.​ Read more...

Mobilegeddon - what it means

Main Image
One of the most important factors in determining whether your business is successful is whether your customer can find it. If you operate online, Google has the greatest control over this with their ever changing algorithm. We’ve lived through the days of penguin, panda and caffeine, and this week saw a game changing move by Google. Read more...

Easter Delivery Update

Main Image
Time is ticking as we approach Easter and the two bank holidays - yipee! While we all enjoy a few extra days to spend with our friends and family, it does mean that your parcels can't be delivered quite as quickly as normal. We've popped the delivery schedule below for the Easter period but we recommend that you get your delivery booked in with plenty of time to spare. And remember, if you have any Easter gifts to send, we have a Saturday service that can get it delivered as close to the big day as possible. Read more...

Update: Delivery by Drone

Main Image
Many months ago we shared with you Amazon’s plans to test parcel delivery by drone. Back in June, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) put a stop to its when they ruled that Amazon, and other firms, could not use drones to deliver packages. The ruling stated that it is barring the 'Delivering of packages to people for a fee’ which also includes free delivery in association to a purchase. At the time the FAA agreed to revisit the ruling later this year and that is exactly what they have done. Read more...

Has the budget measured up?

I always await the chancellor’s budget with excitement and nervousness in equal measures. As a business owner, the decisions made by George Osbourne impact my business here at My Parcel Delivery in hundreds of different ways. By making changes to tax, in addition to the introduction and withdrawal of community and business projects, what is decided on the 18th March 2015 can help make (or break!) your business.
