The Best of Norwich
Is your business a fantastic Norwich business? Are you proud of what you do? Then speak to us about our bestof Norwich advertising. As a recommended Norwich business you will benefit from a range of Norwich marketing solutions from web, social media and email promotion, to use of our "as recommended on" logo as part of your "bestof Norwich" marketing mix.
Do you want people to know how good you are?
Thebestofnorwich showcases and promotes recommended Norwich businesses.
If you are a Norwich business or a Norfolk business looking for Norwich clients, then we have a range of advertising and marketing ideas that will work for you.
Offering a complete marketing mix, we take the stress from you, and save you time - all at a very reasonable cost.
How do we do that?
Well, there are two ways that we save you money and help you promote your business:
Firstly, we are part of the bestof group of franchisees, so we have the buying power of a large organisation - there are over 350 of us in the UK. We are able to tap into a top of the range website and infrastructure, pick up tips for our clients from other franchisees around the country and still give our clients a very personal service as committed owners of the Norwich bestof.
Secondly, you are dealing with the owners of the Norwich franchise, so you are dealing with two business owners - Sara and Chris - who are passionate about what they do, rather than employed sales people who are just looking to make commission.
Our business is privately funded so we have full commitment as business owners, to making our marketing solutions work for our clients.
We have always taken a long term view to building our business and maintaining relationships with our clients - which is why we limit the number of businesses that we deal with. We want to get to know you and keep in touch with you.
Because it is our business, and we are recommending the people that we feature, we have a rule - "no grumpy people"!
So, if you're looking for run of the mill advertising, don't come to us.
If, on the other hand, you want to be featured as one of only 5 recommended Norwich businesses in your category, with flexible marketing and advertising options, pick up the phone or e-mail us to arrange a meeting.
We meet everyone before we take them on board, and then ask for two references.
Your Norwich marketing and advertising package will include:
- a whole web page, including
- special offers
- live social media streams
- testimonial page
and, as well as this web promotion, we will help you to market your business by utilising:
- e-mail newsletters to our huge local database,
- social media marketing - we have over 16,000 twitter followers between our local twitter accounts.
- local and national campaigns,
- review postcards to hand out,
- reviews widget for your website
- printed newsletter promotion
- special offer promotion to staff in larger businesses
- free or discounted monthly networking events,
- introductions to useful contacts
- regular meetings to brainstorm marketing ideas
- discounted social media training
- discounted exhibition stands and much more.
Give us a ring on 01603 605530 or email email@example.com and we would love to meet you for a coffee and a chat.

With all the furore over horse meat being found in more and more products, we thought it was a timely reminder that when we buy from a local butcher, not only are we keeping more money in the local economy, but we will have a pretty good idea of where the meat came from -and it's more tasty too....read more »
