The Best Of Newport
Making sure local businesses get noticed by the commercial and consumer residents in YOUR area! 'Buy Local' has never been such an important issue - and that's what we're all about! From just £1.33-per-day (+VAT).
‘thebestof.co.uk’ is a National phenomenon which has grown so quickly over the last couple of years, that it is now a strategic-partner of Google, the most widely-used search-engine in the world!
In ‘plain-speak’ this means that when someone types a word into their search bar, Google ‘comes to us’ to find the answer! – Well, not just us, granted! – But we are one of only four data-storage centres that Google uses in the UK!
What does that mean to you?
Well, if you’re in business yourself, you probably have a website. You probably pay for search-engine-optimisation, or even, pay-per-click, or for ad-words. It’s a constant struggle to come up with something new, something to get you noticed, something different to keep your website ‘in’ with a chance of being found. You’re probably on Linked-In, Facebook, and you probably Tweet endlessly about your day.
If you’re a consumer, (member of the buying public,) you’re probably looking for somewhere to go for a night out, something to buy for a birthday, something to wear for a special occasion, somewhere to take the kids, somewhere to go to relax.
Either or both, you may need the services of an electrician, or an accountant, or a bookkeeper, a funeral director, a therapist, a beautician, hairdresser, caterer, cake-maker, landscaper, . . . . the list goes on. And on. And on.
To find what they’re looking for – locally – already over 1.5 million users every month turn to thebestof.co.uk! It’s as simple as that!
No, not yet another on-line directory! They just provide you with a name and a telephone number. At thebestof, we provide you with a full, professionally written feature – with direct links to our members own websites. We receive and encourage written testimonials for every business that’s featured, and/or, we visit them personally, to make sure the business meets with our exact expectations.
The Newport and Torfaen buying-public, and other local businesses, need to know that they don’t have to go far to get what they need. It’s all here, right on your doorstep – and now, more than ever before, local businesses need the support of each other, and all those that live in the area.
Local directories posted through your front door have their place. It’s just a matter of remembering where it was the last time you saw it! Magazines lay un-looked-at and un-loved, in doctors’ waiting rooms and the like, for about forty-years after their publication. Local newspapers keep your chips warm until you get them home.
thebestof is available 24/7, 365, right at your fingertips – and it doesn’t matter what device you use to search us! Our ‘tekkies’ are so up-to-the-minute, that we can identify the type of gadget that you’re using to search us, and we provide the information back, in the format specifically designed for it.
. . . So that’s an overview – but there’s so much more - we just didn’t want to bore you with the detail of our weekly business networking breakfasts, or our special events, or our unique promotions, or our fun-quizzes, or our ‘door-drops,’ or our campaigns, or our . . . well, like we said, we don’t want to bore you! (But there IS so much more!)
Hugely Expensive Membership! Right?
Wrong! A commercial membership can cost as little as just £40 (+VAT) per month, plus a small one-off sign-up fee. thebestof is a marketing platform for local businesses – you can add to it, change it, drop-it, at will, because there are no long term contracts to sign! If it doesn’t work for you, you don’t pay!
After your initial feature goes ‘live’ – you can change it whenever you want to, at no extra charge! You have a special offer that you want to publicise? – Do so, on thebestof, at little or no extra cost. Want us to Twitter and Tweet on your behalf? Sure, no problem! Help you get testimonials? Yep, we do that too! Introduce you to other local businesses? Of course!
We aim to be as flexible in our approach as you want us to be! If you have a question, ask it! If you have an idea, share it. If you want us to help with something – publicise your event, invite people to come and see you, turn-up unannounced at your birthday party . . . well, maybe not that last one, . . . but the message is, ‘We’re here!’ To help, support, publicise and maximise your commercial profile like no other marketing company out there, and for a fraction of their associated costs!
‘Joe Public’ needs you just as much as you need them.
