Parkes is a specialist content producer based in Swansea for over 25 years. Our team of researchers, writers, editors, IT specialists and project managers has expertise in industry sector analysis, business information and guidance, finance, tax, statistics, and general and technical writing.

 

We have produced business start-up guides for Virgin.Biz, Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank (now Santander) and Adviserplus Business Solutions. The guides provide sector-specific guidance on starting and running a business. They cover over 200 different business types in exhaustive detail and include an interactive Start-up Costs Calculator and other useful tools. The company also produces a white label interactive business planner and cash-flow forecast.

 

We have used Sell2Wales for over 5 years. It is an invaluable free resource for marketing the company's services, for finding potential contracts and identifying useful contacts within the businesses who post tender opportunities.

 

The company has won tenders for providing website content for the government and blue-chip companies. Trade sector guides were commissioned by and produced for Business Link. Other contracts tendered for and won were to write guides on tax and benefits for Direct.gov and simplified customer facing guides for the HMRC website. We have also produced regional business guides commissioned by Welsh Government.

 

Tendering is time consuming so you need to make sure that the time is not wasted.

 

  • If you have never tendered before, workshops like those provided by Sell2Wales are a must.

  • Don't then use a scatter-gun approach, tendering for every possible contract. It's like panning for gold - review all the opportunities advertised on Sell2Wales but pick only those few that are an ideal match for your skills.

  • Read the tender documents carefully and take all the time that's necessary to complete them fully, taking note of the scoring to make sure you shine where it's most important.
