The Local Business Clinic
AB Marketing Services is a proud supporter of The Local Business Clinic.
The Local Business Clinic was founded by AB Marketing Services together with MR Books. It is our mission to help bring communities together, share ideas, problem solve and offer general support to local businesses. In order to achieve this we have set up a FREE local business drop in clinic.
The Essex business clinic will meet on the first Tuesday of every month at The Station House in Burnham-On-Crouch. Our launch night will be Tuesday 6th December 2016 and we hope to see lots of locals there. Just like a Doctors surgery we intend to have a ‘waiting room’ as a room for people to network in a relaxed manner and get to know other local businesses. As well as a private room should anyone wish to speak more quietly or confidentially with one of our volunteer experts. We intend to have a Solicitor for legal advice, Bookkeeper for financial or accounting advice, IT tech for problems with computers and of course us, AB Marketing, for anyone who may have questions about their websites or marketing.
The Next Step….
To enhance our monthly clinic meetings we have now launched an online directory. For a monthly subscription of just £3.50 payable via PayPal, businesses will receive an online profile listing on our new website promoting their business. (Freedom to cancel at any time).
The website will be aimed at our local area of Essex (with other counties also coming soon!). There will be a home page with information about our clinics complete with Facebook feed, a section for blogging, an events page for subscribers to display their event posters/details, a section for subscribers to advertise job vacancies, Q&A and ask the experts help section and of course the online directory itself where we will display the ads. All those subscribed will also receive exclusive FREE Facebook advertising via our TLBC page and group within our local community.
Our vision is to bring a community together. We feel our area seriously lacks affordable advertising options for local businesses. We also want to help locals by having a central hub where they can find local reliable trades and keep afloat of what our area has to offer. We intend to drive traffic to the new website by ensuring it is a useful tool for both the businesses advertising and the end users seeking local trades or information.
Combining all this with the all important Social Media advertising and our Monthly clinics we hope we can be #StrongerTogether!
We also intend to be able to give back to our community as much as we can. Which is why on launch day we shall pick one lucky subscribing business to receive 150 free flyers to help get their New Year off to a flying start.
The official directory part of the website will launch on 1st January 2017 but we need the subscriptions in beforehand to get the profiles created and loaded. So please all sign up over on the website now to ensure your business is included in time for the launch. Once subscribed online you’ll receive a confirmation email from us, within 24 hours, asking for the information required for your advert.
