Maximise Your Savings with RMB Price Guarantee

In the past few years we have witnessed ever increasing costs and higher energy prices.

 

Thousands of businesses have experienced hardship and been fearful of the fact that they may have to close if the prices continue to increase. In recent times the majority of businesses in the UK are now searching for ways of cutting back and saving much needed funds.

In the hospitality sector alone some 80% of respondents to a survey carried out by The Caterer of restaurateurs, hoteliers, contract caterers and publicans said that rising energy prices had wiped out their profits, while 60% feared their business may not survive the next 12 months without sufficient government support.

 

The majority of operators in the sector also said that their bills had risen by more than 100%,

while 22% had seen a rise of over 300%, and 22% said their costs had increased by over 400%.

 

A devastating impact which is now currently making businesses think very carefully about their futures and come up with strategies and solutions in a way of regaining those losses.

 

Reduce My Bills are in partnership with all the main suppliers within the utility market, covering 8 key business costs along with a free Energy Claim Audit review.

The Power of Networking - RMB Becomes Member of East Lancs Chamber of Commerce

Left/Right: Neil Farrar-Smith alongside Stephen Lane from the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.

Neil Farrar-Smith, Head of Sales at Reduce My Bills recently attended the Lancashire Business View monthly event held at West Lancashire College in Skelmersdale.

 

It was the first event that Reduce My Bills had been invited to since becoming a subscriber to

the LBV. And it was a perfect way of introducing ourselves to the community and the fellow

business owners within the county.

 

Being at the monthly gathering of regional businesses allowed Neil to share the vision of RMB and talk to fellow subscribers about the recent advertorial which was featured in the

September/October edition of the prestigious LBV magazine.

 

The article featured an interview with RMB Managing Director Ryan Haigh, where he talks about the unique offering of RMB and the benefits of using such a revolutionary product. The

opportunity also gave Neil the time to meet and converse with like minded business owners and share ideas. The event which celebrates excellence and provides a platform for sharing success was massively important for RMB to be in attendance.

During the event Neil spoke with many of the LBV subscribers for the first time, including

Stephen Lane from the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. Stephen is the Membership Recruitment Executive and Neil was able to learn more about the importance of the Chamber of Commerce and how it plays a fundamental role in connecting businesses throughout the county and beyond.

 

The event in Skelmersdale was also showcased in one of our previous blogs appearing within our media section: https://www.reducemybills.ltd/post/reduce-my-bills-attend-lbv-networking-event

 

It was also whilst at the LBV event in Skelmersdale that Neil was able to invite Stephen to the

RMB Head Offices in Barrowford for a meeting with management and staff to show him in much more detail the unique offering of products and services.

 

Stephen had recently taken RMB up on their invitation and visited the offices to meet the staff and spend time in conversation with both the Managing Director Ryan Haigh and Finance Director Reegan Haigh to share thoughts and ideas on growth and potential customer opportunities.

Stephen spoke at length about the benefits of becoming a member of the East Lancashire

Chamber of Commerce. Some of those benefits include; making business contacts, acquiring

customer referrals, increasing the business profile within the community and possibly gaining a voice in government if necessary. The meeting was an extremely productive and resounding success and after consideration Reegan decided it would certainly benefit RMB to be a part of the commerce family in East Lancashire and subsequently become a member.

 

Getting the thoughts of Reegan about becoming a member, he said; “Its natural that RMB forms key strategic partnerships of this nature as we progress our journey. While we have been in this industry for some 33yrs, the RMB subscription model is relatively new. This means we are still evolving, but rest assured we already have a dynamic and innovative product fit for the market. This is why we spent a full year designing and developing pre-launch. We are also very proud of our proprietary software which brings AI to the utilities and business services arena. Our mission is of exponential scale as we penetrate more of the SME market place. Having partners such as the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce will support us along the road map we have set.”

 

During Stephen’s visit we also gathered the thoughts of RMB Head of Sales, Neil Farrar-Smith, he said; “It is a real pleasure to be part of the team which delivers such a rounded and complete package. We are aiming to develop deeper relationships both with our partners and customers. We feel that by acting as close confidants we are delivering something different. The RMB subscription model allows us to play a leading part in how our customers navigate eight key business overheads. By becoming part of the team, it enables us to review, to acknowledge and more importantly to understand the specific nature of each of our customers requirements. This then leads to ‘best in class’ support and further results in our ability to save our customers much greater amounts than they will ever pay towards the subscription fees. Notwithstanding, we then simply contractually guarantee the savings, thus, our model is perfect, never resulting in cost only savings”

 

RMB are now embarking on the beginning of the formal relationship with the East Lancashire

Chamber of Commerce which will entail inter alia, numerous networking events, access to the c500 business members, and also provide meetings, presentations and endorsements. A

fantastic opportunity for RMB to showcase their unique products to a much wider audience.

Over the next month or so and leading into 2024 Neil will be attending more events within the

county and sharing far and wide our unique selection of business services.

RMB Attend Lancashire Business View Event

Neil Farrar-Smith chatting to LBV Chairman Richard Slater

Reduce My Bills Head of sales Neil Farrar-Smith recently attended an excellent networking event held at West Lancashire College.

 

It was an event organised by the Lancashire Business View magazine, and was a perfect opportunity for Neil and Reduce My Bills to engage in conversation with other businesses in the county.

 

The event was held on the 29th September at West Lancashire College in Skelmersdale enabling businesses to network with those featured in the magazine and the wider business community. With several interviews taking place including Jess Barrow of Woohoo Ltd, Sam Gibbs at Mercure Blackburn, Gareth Sutton at West Lancashire College and Lauren Capstick of the Lancashire Skills & Employment Hub.

Neil also had the opportunity to speak with several personalities from LBV including their Chairman Richard Slater. Both spoke about the magazine and its rich value in content, with Neil expressing his delight that Reduce My Bills was part of the magazine's September/October edition and hinting that he would be honoured to present the business at any future networking events.

 

During the morning Neil was also able to talk with LBV Managing director, Stephen Bolton. Neil shared the vision of Reduce My Bills with Stephen, who was impressed with the way in which Neil was interacting with fellow LBV members and engaging in conversation as somebody new to this networking event.

 

Being a part of this event and featuring in the recent edition of the magazine was extremely beneficial for the business. Having the ability to connect with other businesses from the county allowed Neil to increase the exposure of Reduce My Bills and bring the benefits of the product to the attention of those in attendance.

Neil had the pleasure of also meeting LBV Sales director Joanne Hindley

Neil also found time to chat with LBV Assistant marketing manager, Olivia Mccaughran who shared ideas with Neil about possible marketing strategies and ways of creating further interest in the market. And on a busy morning of networking there was also time to have a detailed conversation with Joanne Hindley, the new Sales director at LBV. She was excited about recently joining LBV and embracing the new challenges ahead.

Speaking to Neil about the event, he said; “The entire morning was thoroughly enjoyable. Having the opportunity to meet Lancashire businesses in person was beneficial for Reduce My Bills. Being featured in the magazine is one thing, but to be here in person to chat to fellow members is very important.”

 

Neil went on to say; “The product we are offering at Reduce My Bills is new to the market and like no other. Nobody else is doing what we do, and sometimes that can generate scepticism. By being here and having the ability to discuss what Reduce My Bills has to offer gives our product greater levels of clarity. Social media is a fantastic tool for sharing and increasing product exposure, but it is never the same as being able to express that personally.”

'Rogue' Energy Brokers Spark £2.5 Billion In Compensation Claims

A recent report in The Guardian highlighted that almost thirty percent of companies have engaged with a broker to procure a business energy supply contract but unlike the middlemen who market mortgages or insurance deals, the energy intermediaries are largely unregulated.

 

Research has also shown that at least 15,500 compensation claims are currently being pursued with an astonishing £2.5 billion pounds now at stake.

 

ITV | Consumer Editor | Chris Choi https://www.itv.com/news/2023-08-14/energy-scandal-fears-as-brokers-accused-of-inflated-charges-and-secrecy

The recent ITV news segment has highlighted the undisclosed commission element further and it is a natural instinct to believe the whole broker, third party introducer process is flawed.

Unfortunately the actions and unscrupulous behavior of a few have tarnished many.

 

Reduce My Bills Limited are advancing on a journey to provide transparent and ethical solutions to their customer base, within a marketplace that can be somewhat difficult to navigate.

 

With planning and preparation we believe we have delivered an alternative option and approach which delivers the necessary transparency business owners so desperately need.

 

RMB is about saving the customer money, not charging them. And that is why we simply charge a subscription fee with no commissions and most certainly no hidden costs.
