thebestof Eastbourne - great value marketing in Eastbourne for businesses that deliver fantastic products/services.

Our award-winning multi-channel marketing is there to help increase your online visibility and introduce you to quality connections through networking events.

Put simply, we amplify what you are brilliant at!

What we do for you

thebestof Eastbourne gives Eastbourne consumers access to companies that are confident in their ability to deliver quality.

We showcase your reviews from all major review platforms such as Checkatrade, Facebook, Google, TripAdvisor, TrustPilot and even … to mention a few.

Check out our Business Services Directory - if you offer a service NOT listed there, we would love to hear from you as we are keen to expand the range of services we have available to our audience.

Alternatively, if you offer a service that IS listed in our directory, we would still like to talk to you to find out exactly what makes you different to our existing business members. After all, there are many ways to interpret what “best” means - you might be “best value” or “fastest delivery” - as long as there is something unique we can highlight about your business, we can help.

A virtual Marketing Director

At a recent networking event, David Ruddle was introduced to the group as “the Marketing Director your business can afford”.

What that means to you and your company is having someone with 20+ years of business expertise (with over 10 years of that in local marketing) to offer guidance, help and support in making your ambitions a reality.

Not only that, but David will also create new opportunities for you in the business sector and with community organisations – and he ensures his knowledge is kept up to date through webinars, videos, and PDF guides along with attending Sales and Marketing Seminars wherever possible.


Business Networking in Eastbourne

You might be thinking “Oh no, not another one”! but whilst there are a lot of business networks in Eastbourne, thebestof Eastbourne offers networking in different ways:

  • Business Boost

Our Business Networking and Learning event has proved a very popular format. You could say it is a fusion of our relaxed and informal #EBtweetup with practical marketing content as shared in our Business MOTs.

  • #EBtweetup

This is where we bring trusted local businesses and the community together as well as provide a speaking platform to one of our many charity partners.

  • An evening with thebestof

This exclusive VIP event is for Eastbourne members only and the emphasis is on connecting with other people, informally, over a few drinks.

  • Business of the Year Awards

A great event where we bring our business members and invited guests together to recognise their achievements.

Local Marketing Master Class

David Ruddle hosts member-only sessions that are included in our Silver and above marketing support packages where members come together to learn more about a topic such as Blogging for SEO, Using Social Media more Effectively and a How-to guide to Google Business Profile.

Where there is group interest and potential value, ANY marketing topic can be requested, and a bespoke session will be created!

How to start getting found and noticed

If your business is already established and has a good reputation but you want to be better call David on 01323 406060 or drop him an email via thebestof Eastbourne.  You can then arrange a quick phone call to get an idea of what you are looking for and agree to meet up at a suitable location to discuss your business needs in more detail.
