They Can Make You Or Break You!

A recent consumer survey came up with the following stats about online customer reviews:

  • 73% of consumers say Positive reviews make them trust a business more.
  • 79% of consumers say they trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations
  • 85% say that they read online reviews.

If you have NO online reviews – or Poor online reviews, you need to do something about it – quickly – before your competitors do.

Frank will also be offering the one month’s free MuleKick Reputation Strategy trial, that is about to be rolled out to all Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce members, to all listeners and supporters of Radio Saltire. At the end of the month’s trial you WILL have a Reputation Strategy in place.

John spoke passionately about the ideas behind his creation, his love of Scottish history and his disappointment that more of our mythology isn’t known to so many people. He gave a frank account of his hopes and ambitions for Saltire and a little background on how this towering blue, red headed Scotsman came to be.

Cover of Invasion - Saltire ComicJohn Ferguson – Creator of Scotland’s first superhero joins Andy Forrest for Brunch on Wednesday 4th.

Saltire Invasion

The first in a series of comic books centring round Scotland’s first superhero. The dark and gritty world of the main character is a pseudo-history of the country and its mythology. Set entirely in the landscape of Scotland during pivotal moments from the past, the novel will be familiar to those who enjoy the rich legends and traditions of Scotland.

Creator John Ferguson said,

I really believe that Saltire will grow in Scotland to rival the wonderful superhero franchises from across the Atlantic. The reaction from the public and professionals within the comic book genre has been fantastic so far and to get the opportunity to introduce the finished book at the Literary Festival was tremendous.

Describing his creation Ferguson continues

Saltire is an immortal being created thousands of years ago to protect Scotland and its people. He’s big, he’s blue and he’s ginger. He has Scottish values but he’s a traditional comic book superhero with a variety of super villains to contend with as the story progresses, a Scottish competitor to Batman and Spiderman if you like.

The book tells the story of the legendary Ninth Legion and its attempts to expand the Roman Empire to the north, to the land of Saltire.

Andy Forrest will be talking to John Ferguson about his creation during Brunch tomorrow from 10am. In the meantime, find out more at:
