The Best of Hastings has been fantastic for my business. The Best of Hastings promotes on social media spreading the word further than I ever could. BUT the best of the Best of Hastings is the huge amount of reviews my business has gained that people can access and check out. Really important these days as people want value and proof that you are good at what you do. Thanks to the whole team at the Best of Hastings my business is WAAAY better.

FreshOnline is proud to be a member of The Best Of Hastings Ltd and Cale has been instrumental in our success on the platform. Their high-quality directory listing and online review service are great for Local SEO, so if you want to connect with new customers in 1066 Country, I would highly recommend speaking to Cale about membership options.
The Best of Hastings is THE BEST and has helped me with my social media giving me top tips and instantly usable advice to help promote my business and maximise my membership of the Best of Hastings.

Brilliant - I highly recommend The Best of Hastings for social media consulting.

Beautiful bouquet of balloons sent by Karen Crowhurst from Danny the Idiot. He is so talented and it really brightens a room up. WELL DONEAND THANKS!!
I have just come away feeling positive from online networking organised by Cale for the small business owners who are members of The Best of Hastings. If you'd like to raise the profile of your business in the Hastings area and experience the cross referral and other benefits of surrounding yourself with such positive people, then have a word with Cale Sinfield. For a very reasonable monthly fee you too could experience the win win benefits of membership. Highly recommended.
Reply from Cale : Thank you so much, Jason. A valued member and an excellent business coach as well. Look forward to continuing working with you.

Cale at The Best of Hastings is brilliant for my business Danny The Idiot - why? Because I can ask customers for independent reviews which are posted for all to read on the Best of Hastings website. People can read my Idiotic blogs , find out about offers I am promoting and much much more. All these things help my business, Danny The Idiot, so local people in and around the Hastings area can really get of the Best of Hastings.
Reply from Cale : Thank you so much, Danny. We love having you as a member and look forward to working with you and helping your business grow over the years to come.

The Best of Hastings organized yet another fabulous Curry Club business networking evening at Bay Spice in Hastings which I had the pleasure to attend. What a friendly welcoming event, which is quite informal and allowed me to build friendly relationships with other local business owners. The food is great and there is plenty of it. I certainly shall not miss the next one in early December. Thank you Cale and Clare. You have the talent to bring people together. 10 out of 10. Recommended.

This was a relaxed networking event and a great introduction for me as a networking newbie. Everyone had the opportunity to speak about their products or services and best of all there was a glass of bubbly and some food!

Bubbles & Business is a fabulous networking event in Hastings at a wonderful venue at Bannatynes Hotel. The food is amazing - delish sandwiches, tasty cakes with teas coffees and bubbly. The networking is relaxed and informal, meaning you can really chat to people and get to know their business and how you can help each other. Its really the Best of Hastings! Cale & Clare are very welcoming. It is advisable to book in advance as this event grows in popularity.

I was fortunate to attend The Best of Hastings Curry Club event on Tuesday 5th March. Such a relaxed and friendly business networking event over a beer and a curry. No 60 seconds presentations, just getting to know other local business owners. Thank you so much Cale and Clare for inviting me. Highly recommended.

I Have attended several of the Best of Hastings events that Cale has hosted, they are always well run, fun, and well attended, with the perfect balance of networking and social. The last Bubble and business event i attended in January at Bannatynes was wonderful - Cale was the most gracious host, with positive things to say about every single business in the room, he made sure everybody had other people to talk to and made many introductions around the room, i personally made 2 or 3 fabulous connections that have already had a huge impact on my business growth and plans for this year..... so all that plus great food, company and Prosecco... whats not to love!

I have little natural empathy with the administration of Social Media in general, but I do recognise the necessity of having a connection and back up to one's web presence - and Cale does a great job of doing what I really don't have the time or the inclination to do myself. The link to my website with the Bestof Hastings site gives prospective customers the ability to immediately check what those customers who've reviewed my business say about what I do and how I do it. That's the mechanics, fine, but what goes into providing relevant and necessary material is imperative, and Cale is on the button here. He understands the locality, so if you want to be 'current' in bringing your commercial operation to the attention of the modern consumer in this area, you really need to be having a serious conversation with the Bestof Hastings. Cale pays attention to detail, is thorough and committed to doing his best for what you need to be doing. Wholeheartedly recommend the ' Bestof'.
