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!

What our Business Members say…

Ditzy Media Ltd - Mina said:

Most of my business comes through local networking, including the Best of Eastbourne #EBtweetUp and building links with other Best Of members. I have recently begun working with a high-quality business professional and had a meeting with him yesterday. I had to ask how he found me as he is not a local business. He explained the process he went through which included a lot of online research to find the right type of consultant to suit his requirements. I was delighted to hear that his journey started with looking at my profile and testimonials on the Best Of. Proof that the Best Of Eastbourne does really raise your profile - not just in your local networks, and can bring some very valuable business to you. A testament to David's efforts!

Went to the #EBtweetup last night hosted by David Ruddle of thebestof Eastbourne. His enthusiasm for his business, his town, and his business partners shows up in those who attend his events. If you have even half a chance to join in, do so. It will open up doors to new friends and opportunities.

Showcase your expert knowledge #AskTheExpert

For businesses that can support new and growing businesses in Eastbourne, we developed the #AskTheExpert event where we invite our members to take questions from other local businesses. These events generally attract high-quality visitors with a genuine need for advice.

What a visitor that then become a member had to say…

Ask The Expert was a brilliant event. There were lots of experts there with various fields of expertise. This gave many businesses the opportunity to learn and to gain new ideas and contacts. Everyone there was very friendly and approachable. It was lovely seeing the local MP there also. David hosted the event and shone. He really does excel in this area and his passion for what he does is evident. Roll on the next one!! Laura - Get A Room Online Ltd


We really do love local!

At the heart of all we do at thebestof Eastbourne is promoting Buy Local. We love that this is also recognised by the businesses we promote and when we had this said about our work by One Answer Insurance we were very proud.

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.
