4 ways to market your business for free

How can social media and the BID help your business to thrive?

Did you know that, according to research, more than 50% of adults are using one or more social media networks for business and leisure?  If you business isn’t online then you could be missing out.  Here are four ways that In West Ealing BID can help:

1. Start tweeting!  
If you use Twitter make sure you follow @InWestEaling for daily news and updates about the BID and West Ealing. In addition we can help you by ‘retweeting’ and ‘liking’ your tweets.  Twitter is a great platform to promote your business as users view it as a social network rather than advertising and the reach can be significant in driving traffic to your webpage (if you have one) or even footfall to events and activities.

2. Connect on Facebook
In West Ealing has an active Facebook page and links into local neighbourhood groups with access to thousands of local residents.  The BID can help you to reach this audience and promote the local area, particularly if you have events or activities that you would like to promote.

3. Check out our Webpage
The BID has an active website with feature items, news, and events listings. There is also a Business Directory where you can search for businesses by category.  Make sure we have your details today!

4. Plan an event and tell us about it or even plan it with us!  
Driving footfall in West Ealing is a key priority for the BID and we are keen to encourage local spend as well as visitors into the area.  So if you have a special offer coming up for Valentine’s Day, half-term activities, live music or special offers make sure you tell us about it.

Got an idea?  Tell us about it and see how we can help you!
