MARKETING

TIPS

To grow your business,

increase your clients & boost your sales.

WEBSITES • NEWSLETTERS • SEO • GOOGLE ADS • BLOGS • BROCHURES • LOGO DESIGN • EMAIL MARKETING • SOCIAL MEDIA

1. ROCK SOLID BRANDING

So, what is branding and why is it important

for your business? A brand is how your

business is perceived, it is the impression

that people have of your business and

tells them what they can expect from your

products or services. Branding is all about

building relationships, it is the promise

to your customer which can drive new

business. Building your brand establishes credibility, builds trust,

helps to share your message and attract your ideal clients.

2. EFFECTIVE & ENGAGING VISUALS

Humans are visual creatures, and in our

easily distracted world it is essential for

your business to portray memorable design

and great visuals. It all starts with a solid

foundation. Logos, colours and graphics

that express your personality and the

quality of your work. Make an impact with

your marketing tools, such as a customerfriendly

website, company profile, product brochure, etc. You are

important, make sure you look it!

3. CLEAR CONCISE VOICE

As an expert in your field you have valuable

insights and a unique perspective to

share. Make sure your message is crystal

clear, authentic, easy to understand and

communicates what your target audience

needs to hear. Share the valuable nature of

your service or product, aligning you as the

expert, and communicating exactly why

they should choose you. Avoid any possible confusion, what may

be obvious to you is not necessarily clear to your potential client.

4. KNOW YOUR USP

Your Unique Selling Proposition (USP)

is what differentiates you in a way that

will make clients choose you over your

competition. What are you great at? What

value do you create? Understand what

makes your offering unique, and position

your brand as a solution to your ideal client’s

problems. Be the solution!

5. UNDERSTAND YOUR AUDIENCE

You can’t be everything to everyone. Focus

on creating an unforgettable experience

for those that are hungry for what you have

to offer. The more you know about your

audience, the more value you can give

them. Learn to describe them in as much

detail as you can: are your customers male

or female? What is their age? What do they

value? All these details will help you better understand how to

market to them effectively.

6. CONSISTENCY IS KEY

Consistency builds trust and makes a brand

more memorable; both are critical when

cultivating a loyal audience. Even though

you might be growing tired of your brand’s

voice, look and feel, it is important to

remember that a portion of your audience

has only just come to discover your brand.

When they see you a second time, you want

to make sure there’s no confusion about who you are. Consistency

contributes towards a solid foundation for your brand.

Odélle Hadnum (Director)

MY FINANCIAL BILLBOARD

BROUGHT TO YOU BY MY FINANCE PARTNER

WHAT THE 2021

BUDGET SPEECH

MEANS FOR YOU

A Roundup Of Key Takeaways

The Minister of Finance delivered his annual budget

speech on Wednesday, 24 February, and these are

some of the key takeaways from the speech that

My Finance Partner believes will impact businesses

and individuals in the year ahead.

SARS WILL COLLECT R213.2 BILLION LESS FOR THE

2021 TAX YEAR

Total tax collections are estimated at R1.2 trillion, a shortfall

of approximately R213.2 billion in comparison to the initial

budget and the largest shortfall ever recorded. Treasury

has acknowledged that Covid-19 has led to many business

closures and job losses, and in the interests of supporting

households, businesses and the economy, government will

not be introducing new measures to increase tax revenue.

PERSONAL INCOME TAX

Estimated to contribute R482 billion (40%) of the total tax

collections, personal income tax remains the single biggest

contributor to Government’s budget.

In terms of relief offered to taxpayers, it was announced that

there will be an above inflation adjustment of 5% to the

individual tax brackets and annual tax rebates from 01

March 2021. This will result in the tax-free threshold

increasing from R83,100 to R87,300 for taxpayers under 65

years of age.

COMPANY INCOME TAX RATE TO REDUCE TO 27%

The National Treasury has, for some time, been all too aware of

the fact that South Africa’s Company Income Tax (CIT) rate (at

28%) is relatively high when compared with similar countries

and our trading partners, and that this acts as a hindrance to

economic growth by reducing competitiveness. Aside from

this, a higher CIT rate also creates an incentive for profit shifting

to jurisdictions with lower tax rates, like Mauritius, thereby

affecting SARS’ efficiency in administering CIT and ultimately

reducing revenue collections overall. Government has taken

the first step in making SA more competitive by lowering

the corporate tax rate to 27% for years commencing

01 April 2022.

SARS GETS R3 BILLION TO ASSIST WITH TAX

COMPLIANCE

An additional R3 billion was allocated to SARS to

modernise its technology infrastructure and systems, and

expand and improve the use of data analytics and artificial

intelligence capabilities to lower costs of compliance, simplify

tax administration and improve collections.

GOVERNMENT WAGE BILL

Government is (again) promising to address SA’s rapidly rising

public sector wage bill, budgeting to cut it by R265 billion in

the next three years. The cost of the SA public sector as a

proportion of its economy is 50% above the US, UK and

the global average.

The State’s wage bill has grown by 4% p.a. in real terms over

the past decade compared with economic growth averaging

1,5%. Reversing this is a critical aspect of Treasury’s

goal to balance the nation’s books by 2025 (i.e. bringing

non-interest spending inline with total tax receipts).

THE COVID RESPONSE

Bringing the current allocation up to R10.3 billion, the

Minister announced in his budget that a further R9 billion

will go into South Africa’s much-anticipated Covid-19

vaccination programme.

Of the new R9 billion allocation for the vaccine roll-out, the

Department of Health will be allocated R6.5 billion to procure

and distribute vaccines and a further R2.4 billion will be going

to provincial health departments “to administer vaccines”.

CAN I FORCE MY

EMPLOYEES TO

GET VACCINATED?

Compulsory Vaccinations In The Workplace

PROPERTY LAW | FAMILY LAW | COMMERCIAL LAW | LABOUR LAW | TRUSTS & ESTATES | LITIGATION

This is a truly relevant and loaded question at present. The

answering of which will depend largely on the specific

circumstances of each working environment and will involve

the careful balancing of a number of fundamental rights.

Currently, there is no law in place making the COVID-19

vaccine obligatory, this has been confirmed by both the

Minister of Health and Cyril Ramaphosa. Further, there is the

Constitution which guarantees us the right to bodily integrity, as

well as freedom of religious ideas and a number of other rights,

which an employee may invoke as a reason for not wanting

to take the vaccine. Not to mention, the National Health Act

confirms that prior to any medical treatment there must be

“informed consent”.

However, and even in light of the above, the Occupational

Health and Safety Act requires employers to both provide

and maintain a safe working environment for both

employees and members of the public. This would include

putting into practice as many preventative measures to prevent

COVID-19 from spreading, the argument here is does the

vaccine not fall into this bracket?

The short or general answer is that as the law stands now there

is no way to force an employee to get vaccinated. A safer

approach is to encourage and educate the employee as to

the benefit of such a vaccination. With this being said each

workforce and environment is different, and as such has different

requirements some of which may justify a vaccination.

We would highly recommend Brookes Attorneys,

efficiency and professionalism at it’s best. Together

with their support and guidance, our CCMA case

was a success. Thank you Brookes Attorneys.

Tango’s turnaround

Tango, a two-year old Africanis began life in misery,

infested with ticks and worms. A Facebook page, one man’s

commitment and a Swiss supplement changed his fate.

His owner, Daryl, explains: “Two years back, a sick puppy was

brought in a little blue bucket to KZN Valley Dogs’ weekly

feeding station in the KwaNgcolosi township. The pup’s

condition was dreadful, hundreds of ticks hung like grapes

from his ears and between his toes. He had scabs on his

body from tick bites and the beginnings of mange. Given

his severe malnutrition, the vet could only estimate he was

between six and eight weeks old. KZN Valley Dogs named

him ‘Bucket Boy’ and began looking for an adoptive family

through Facebook.’

“When I saw the photos, I thought ‘That’s my dog,’ so I

adopted him. Wanting to honour the little guy’s fight

against all odds, I decided to give him a name worthy of

his struggle, and so ‘Bucket Boy’ was renamed ‘Tango’ (well

actually, his full name is Tango Sunshine Bucket Boy).

Tango was lethargic and weak. Adamant to make a

difference in his life, my immediate action was to get some

weight on him. He improved in the first few weeks but was

nothing like a normal pup, despite being fed premium

puppy food. I worried there might be some underlying

problem. A friend suggested Anima-Strath, saying it would

improve his condition and build his immune system. So

Tango started getting Anima-Strath four times a day. This

was the tipping point. In about a week, Tango changed into

a playful, inquisitive pup. Within four weeks, he started filling

out and developed a shine to his coat. He still takes it today

and the dog I feared wouldn’t live is my happy, healthy,

content best friend. In fact, ‘Bucket Boy’ soon fell off his

name, just like the last dead tick. Now he’s simply ‘Tango’,

the ‘Sunshine’ to our lives.” - Daryl
