Through it’s marketing activities and promotion of local independent businesses and organisations in Bolton, thebestof Bolton is one of the truly genuine and effective ways businesses can guarantee to do more business, deliver a better service to the people of Bolton and benefit the town by helping to improve the local economy. But business owners have their role to play too!
True entrepreneurs and realistic business owners recognise their own strengths AND limitations and understand that in order to achieve their goals and dreams, they must not only believe in themselves but also invest in themselves. And of course by that I mean if their venture is to succeed they must be prepared to buy in the skills they themselves don’t have – but only at the right price!
At thebestof Bolton our mantra is ‘Only Do What Only You Can Do’, by which we mean, you the business owner should concentrate on the things you do best and let us, do for you, what we do best and that’s market your business.
No business will grow without effective exposure to a relevant market. Consumers are always looking for suppliers of products and services they can trust to deliver fantastic service at the right price - and that doesn’t always mean cheap! But how do the two come together.
At thebestof Bolton, we go out of our way to find great local businesses that come with a fantastic reputation, ‘because their customers say so’ and we make it easy for the people of Bolton to find them by giving them the ‘Bolton Kite Mark’ recognising Business Excellence, giving local people the opportunity to ‘Buy Local’, which has the added benefit of helping to improve the local economy.
It’s simple really, thebestof Bolton ask local consumers to recommend local businesses they have used and have given great service, giving other local people peace of mind in choosing a supplier of whatever it is they need because they come, by ‘word of mouth’ recommendation and the ultimate result is a ‘Buy Local’ culture which benefits Bolton through a stronger local economy.
Thebestof Bolton aims to put it’s local business members in front of a hungry local market, while providing local Bolton people with genuine resource of tried and trusted suppliers of whatever they need.
Thebestof Bolton benefits business, benefits consumers, benefits Bolton!
If you know of any business in Bolton that deserves to be recognised with the Bolton Kite Mark and recommended as a great local supplier, let us know, so we can help them to help Bolton.
