About TheBestOf Shrewsbury

How we promote businesses

Thebestof Shrewsbury is the ultimate guide to recommended independent businesses, as well as what's on and handy local info.

Is that you? Do you run a great business?

If so, do enough people know about you? Or is your business one of Shrewsbury's best kept secrets? Maybe you have competitors who seem to be here, there and everywhere... and you know they're not even as good as you! How annoying is that?!

For lots of business owners, time is against them when it comes to sorting out their advertising. It goes into the "must do tomorrow" pile. Or they simply don't know what to do when there are so many choices. So they post on Facebook instead... which gets them "likes" but that's not the same as getting enquiries!

The good news is - if you want the phone to ring, we can help.

The businesses we represent enjoy high traffic through thebestof Shrewsbury website, but we also pro actively shout about them via our e-newsletters, blog and social media channels. We are not a 'name and number' directory! Some clients have won business through thebestof just by displaying our 'as recommended on' window sticker or vehicle sticker! Again, it's all about that word - RECOMMENDED.

Our husband-and-wife team provides a quality, low cost advertising service. If you have an ad budget and want professional marketers to spread the word about you, rest assured that we will bust a gut for you. We will promote your name, your reviews, news, events, whatever.... Anything we can do to show people why you are great at what you do.



You'd deal direct with the business owners, Andy and Emma, plus we have a team of expert copywriters and designers behind us. So you wouldn't be talking to a sales rep (nothing against sales reps!). We're here for a long-term partnership not a short-term commission. This is also why we sometimes turn businesses away; if we don't think we can help you or you're not right for us, we'd rather say no. Life's too short!

"But how much does advertising with thebestof Shrewsbury cost?" you cry. We have a deal on at the mo, where a whole year with us costs about the same as a half page ad in one edition of the local monthly glossy. If you're looking for free advertising, we're not for you. There's no such thing as a free lunch in this game; your data would be used for something.

So if you're a Shrewsbury business owner who's got a good business but not enough people know about it, get in touch!


If you're a recommended business that needs an expert hand with local advertising, please call/message 07508 311839 or send us an email.
