This is a personal blog of Tim Carlisle, until recently I ran the retail side of regional merchant S H Jones and covered areas such as buying, sales and marketing across five retail shops as well as taking charge of Slurp.co.uk after it was aquired by the company. I have retail experience in both small independent shops right through to national retailers and have (occasionally too) strong views on how things can be done better and what retailers can do to improve. I am available for work both freelance and full time. I have a particular passion for Sparkling wines, Portugal and South Africa.
I have strong experience of helping an independent merchant make the internet work for them both direct online sales and social media activity as well as forming a cohesive digital strategy.
