People are often surprised to hear that thebestof is NOT an online directory listing website and that in fact, we provide a wide range of marketing and business support services to local, trusted businesses.
Internet or online advertising is just part of what we do!
The world of marketing is changing fast and constantly evolving (sometimes it's hard to keep up with it all), well that's where we can help local businesses, by making local marketing easy!
Our website is run by local people, for local people and an interactive hub for the community to find out what's on in the area, local services and information and find the trusted businesses that we work with.
It also enables us to provide a wide range of dynamic and innovative marketing tools and services to our clients and a great platform to showcase their products and services.
Abby Dennis, owner of thebestof Watford has lived and worked in Watford all of her life, passionate about her hometown and along with her team, they are dedicated to helping local businesses with their marketing and providing an online resource to help local people make informed decisions.
How we work?
Your reputation is your best marketing tool and we only work with businesses that are recommended. How do we know these businesses are great? Because their customers, local people tell us!
So, an essential part of what we provide our business members (clients) is a Reviews Toolkit. It's a comprehensive kit of tools, promotions and incentives to help them with collecting and showcasing their customer reviews to local people.
It includes unlimited printed review cards, an Integrated Plugin App for your own Facebook Fan Page and your own website (which gives the reviews extra visibility and saves heaps of time).
There's also the chance for the businesses to get local and national recognition for being 'the best' by entering The Business of the Year Awards.
We get to know our business members (clients) and work with them closely with promoting not just their customer reviews but special offers, events and showcase them as the ‘go-to’ experts by writing PR articles (blogs) for them.
Building local exposure is crucial and we build awareness for the businesses we work with via a wide variety of marketing tools to our ever growing audience of local people, visitors to our busy website, on social media, in our e-newsletters and more..
Here are a few of the marketing services we provide for our members:
It's affordable and can cost as little as a cup of coffee a day!
