A common theme we find with business owners is that they may be extremely gifted within their area of expertise but the mass of information and advertising opportunities are just overwhelming.
This is exactly where we wanted thebestof Eastbourne to “fill the gap” being more a partnership rather than just an advertising service. Members working with us to leverage their time and effort have seen great benefits and in many of our member's cases, they wish they had joined sooner.
You get to access our engaged audience, local connections and practical marketing experience. Attend the regular workshops run at Pacific House that brings together a mix of highly motivated businesses eager to make progress. Present at our regular networking or business showcases. As a member, you will have our dedication to helping you identify what is working and how to improve it. Not to mention the endless suggestions of ways you can leverage your time raising your business profile that has a positive effect on your business through continuous improvements.
Feel free to ask around as most people with their fingers on the pulse are aware of our support in Eastbourne. In fact, this might be you, people think they have to be invited to join thebestof Eastbourne and though we are particular about who we work with we always welcome a call or e-mail asking to meet.
The best way for us to determine if working together makes sense in booking a quick chat on the phone to agree when to meet for a more in-depth chat about your business and more specifics about what you are looking for help with.

One Answer Insurance - Paul said:
For me David truly understands the merits & importance of supporting local business & indeed supporting each other within this same arena. Supporting local provides so much and yet is overlooked by so many. The creation of Local jobs, access to Local services by Local people creating a true community & therefore a true mutual understanding is the common goal which then moves on to give everyone a real choice against the online & faceless alternatives. I truly believe in LOCAL & David clearly Champions this with the same passion to help us keep the option to buy or use a Local service. Well done David, keep up the fantastic work you are doing.
Artemi Photography - Sarah said:
Another fabulous Marketing Workshop with David this week. Including a new Hot Seat section where a company gets to ask other businesses for help on certain matters like new ideas for marketing etc. I was lucky enough to be the first company and it's left me with a good number of actions points and ideas to focus on for Artemi. Once again thank you David for coming up with another excellent idea!
Shredded Neat - Mark said:
The marketing workshops are really great fun and it is good to share ideas with other companies in Eastbourne, I found the recent work on making and using video content very useful, lots of good in-depth stuff on how Facebook and Google work, David Ruddle has a wealth of knowledge and experience

Bella’s Secret – Bella said:
David has been a wonderful support to me as a new member of thebestof Eastbourne. His energy is infectious, his perseverance and focus inspiring and his drive frankly enviable. I have only attended few events since joining but they were all a great experience and I must admit I wish I had joined earlier!
Cooden Tax Consulting – Simon B said:
David's tireless work for the members of thebestof Eastbourne continues to amaze me, I'm really looking forward to July's Showcase event as I can't make the next one in May, the monthly marketing meetings are always full of fresh ideas, I just wish I had more time to implement some of them and the new member networking sessions that he has planned seem like a great way to get more of the members interacting both amongst themselves and with the community members. Keep going David, you must be running out of ideas soon!

David is a delight to work with and a great supporter of the local community with the #BuyLocal campaign, which we're happy to be a part of and support. He's helped recommend several businesses to help us with our needs. He keeps you up to date and has great communication with us - thank you for your help and continued support with Tectonic Digital Systems.
We also welcome feedback from the public that contact us in times of need, such as Lloyd who needed help launching his campaign.
A very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly business, supplied fantastic contacts to help us with the promotion of our project and also put us onto someone who was able to set up a crowd funding page. We would highly recommend them.
One of the Bright Young Thing’s teams at Brighton University needed some ideas for their project and I offered some advice to their group.
Had a really great conversation with David Ruddle. His knowledge of social media and marketing was exceptional. He gave us ideas of social media channels which we had not previously thought of. If you are in the local area and want any advice on marketing for your business, 'thebestof Eastbourne' is a great place to go. David's enthusiasm will rub off on anyone.
