Your Local Area Marketing Is Key To Any Business

Get 2019 planned with these five great business promotion tips.

Local area marketing will increase the brand and reputation of any business in your local community.

Firstly, Get Involved. All towns and villages have fund-raising days, coffee mornings and other local events that mean something to the local people so try to get involved in these and maybe have a way of raising money for these events or offer a little prize for example. You can also get involved in local community initiatives, things like litter clearing, building projects, park maintenance and many other things that the local communities all have to do.

Give Something Back. Local people like businesses that do something for the local area, especially in the smaller and more closer towns and villages. You could sponsor the local football team, buy something for the nearest hospital or simply give some money to the Christmas lights fund, but whatever you do the local people will take notice and this will increase your reputation in the local area.

Speak To The Community. Encourage local feedback about your business and try to find out what you are doing well and even more importantly what you can improve upon. Hold regular meetings where the local people can come and speak to you and find out what you are doing as if they feel engaged with your business then your reputation will rise.

Attend Local Events. Although you are undoubtedly very busy with your business, try to find the time to attend local events in your area. Making an appearance at charity events, themed evenings, local meetings and all the others things that happen in a community driven society then people will come to know who you are and therefore respect you for giving up your time to attend.

Use Local Services. If the people in your local area know that you as a business are using other local businesses for your requirements, then you can rest assured that they will be more likely to use you instead of some of your rivals. For example, if you needed 500 business cards and 10000 flyers, yes you could get them cheaper from a company two hundred miles away but if you just spent a bit more and used a local business then this will not only reflect favourably on your company but would hopefully reciprocate the business.

Increasing your reputation with local area marketing will take time and a lot of effort, but you have to bear in mind that your easiest business is often the business that is in your local community. These are the people that will see you through the hard times and help to increase business through their friends and family, so you must make the effort now to make sure it all comes together positively in the future.

Blowing Our Own Door to Door Distribution Trumpet

As the year draws to a close and with Christmas approaching very quickly, it is a time to reflect on what has gone before and to plan for the New Year ahead.

It is with a great feeling of achievement that I can report on a tremendous milestone reached for our company, Hallway Distribution. Over the past twelve months our business has distributed just over 800,000 leaflets, magazines, pamphlets and other advertising materials on behalf of our many satisfied clients. We have not only distributed to households but also into many business establishments this year.

The many areas we have covered this calendar year are; Cheltenham, Shurdington, Bishops Cleeve, Woodmancote, Gotherington, Gretton, Greet, Winchcombe, Tewkesbury, Bredon to name the more local ones. Also further afield Churchdown, Longlevens, Brockworth, Hucclecote, Kingsway, Quedgeley, Stonehouse, Stroud, Painswick. We have even ventured into Cirencester, Fairford, Tetbury, Northleach, Evesham, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh.

Our clients range from not just local small businesses but national ones too, for example; estate agents, mechanics, window cleaners, landscape gardeners, house maintenance, builders, plumbers & boiler repairs, keep fit studios, martial art clubs, hotels & spas, carpenters, taxi services, web designers, job recruiting services, cafes & restaurants, and opticians as well as local event organisers.

We have worked with some amazing clients this year to help their businesses grow by promoting them via our door to door leafleting service. We also go a step further by offering clients an inclusion on our website with a link or two back to them.

Not only do we deliver advertising materials but we also help with the design process and offer a copywriting service to go hand in hand with that, we know what works and what doesn’t. We give out free advice on all manner of things advertising wise from, the grade and size of paper to use for best results, the choice of colour and a customer grabbing headline.

Social media these days is of paramount importance in any line of business or service that is on offer, we can also help out with that as well. We can build Facebook groups for business, improving their social media presence as well as showing clients the best way of using Twitter to its full potential, and ultimately gaining you more customers and interaction with it.

With our order book already filling up for January and February 2019 we predict a steady increase for the upcoming new year and beyond.

Our success, we believe, is built upon integrity & trust and always with a willingness to over deliver, no pun intended, in order to keep the customer happy and informed as to the progress of any leafleting campaign we undertake on their behalf. The majority of our distribution is GPS tracked; this gives our clients peace of mind and with that proof of a successful delivery.
