Bringing trusted businesses and the community together
About TheBestOf Shrewsbury
How we promote businesses
Thebestof Shrewsbury is the ultimate guide for information on recommended local businesses. Our mission is to help people find reputable independent shops and services. The businesses we represent enjoy super-high traffic through our 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 got business through thebestof just by having our 'as recommended on' window sticker or vehicle sticker! It's all about that word - RECOMMENDED.
Our team provides a high quality marketing service... and for that - we charge a fee. If you are a private business looking for free advertising, I'm afraid we're not able to help. This is our livelihood. But if you do have an ad budget, 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 will be dealing with experienced marketers, designers and copywriters rather than sales reps (nothing against sales reps!). Your Account Manager (probably Emma) will not be on commission - they will be there to help you, with your best interests at heart. This is why sometimes we turn businesses away; if we don't think we can be of benefit to you or you are not right for us, we would rather say no.
Our average fee is £50+vat per month. We know what that can get you in the local papers and magazines (very little if anything at all). Some clients do pay a higher fee, but that's because they want more of our time or expertise. It's up to the individual. Traditional advertising still has its place, don't get us wrong, but we can offer a lot more for a lot less.
If you are a recommended business that needs an expert hand with local advertising, please call 01743 491356 or send us an email.
thebestof Shrewsbury website is a gathering point for the community as well as great businesses. We are a hub for thebestof everything local, where you can access special offers, find handy phone numbers and keep up-to-date with what's happening in Shrewsbury. People heading up non profit-making clubs and organisations can promote their events on our What's On page free of charge. (Private businesses need to pay.)
Ultimately, our shared passion for Shrewsbury is to see it grow and prosper for the businesses and people within it.
