SuffolkWire – an affordable online turbocharge for your business
13/08/2019 - SuffolkWire
Hana Dickinson, Managing Director of The Bridge Marketing, explains why she decided to launch a local business news website and how your business might benefit from an online boost courtesy of SuffolkWire.
In May 2017 we took a deep breath and pushed live a new website, SuffolkWire. Nothing particularly groundbreaking there, I hear you say. But, you see, it was…
What we created, based on a shared frustration with many SMEs who we’ve spoken to over the years, is an affordable and inclusive way for Suffolk businesses to raise their profile across the county. An alternative to traditional media where businesses don’t have to pay the high costs of print advertising or a retained PR agency to secure regular media coverage.
For businesses who do have the budget for advertising and / or a PR agency, SuffolkWire provides an affordable online boost, to turbocharge the digital reach across the county.
What’s more it’s not just for ‘news’ in the strictest sense. Businesses can share advice, information on any events they are running, people profiles and information on vacancies and new hires.
We’ve essentially thrown out the old rule book about what constitutes editorial or advertising to provide a simple and affordable platform upon which businesses of all shapes and sizes can share information about themselves to raise their profile and build their brand.
