One of the best things we did for our business

16th Apr 2020

We joined the #EthicalHour community* back in 2017 and in our sixteen years of being in business it is one of the best things we ever did.

In 2004 when we first started out, running a business with a purpose was kind of lonely. There were some amazing colleagues and organisations that we looked up to and connected with but the world was a very different place back then and not everyone ‘got it’ and not everyone was supportive. Back then, belonging to a network of entrepreneurs who shared a vision of a kinder, greener world and having access to relevant marketing support and business expertise would have been amazing. Thankfully, now we do.

#EthicalHour isn’t just for start-ups. As an established business we have gained such a lot from being members. Here are some of the ways that #EthicalHour has benefitted our business:

More clients

Simply by being part of a community who want to tread as lightly on the planet as possible we meet new clients who need our website hosting services. Often those clients recommend us to others too. Together we are making a move towards a more environmentally friendly internet.

Networking opportunities

I’m not aware of another single online space where you can meet as many ethical business owners and industry experts from all over the world. It is a genuinely friendly, no-judgement place where it’s OK to ask questions and seek help no matter where you are in your business journey.

Learning and business support

If one thing is true about being an entrepreneur it’s that you never stop learning. #EthicalHour’s online resources cover a huge range of topics including productivity, getting the most out of social media platforms, embedding values in your business, self care, making an impact and lots more.
