Free promotion, marketing and support for your small business
Lancs Local is a small family business. We have set up and sold several small businesses, so we have been through the tough times and the good times that running a small business entails. We are dedicated to supporting businesses to grow and reach new customers.
Amy is chief cheerleader of partner businesses and will send encouragement, advice and support whenever needed. Running a small business is hard graft; we understand that and we are here for the trials, tribulations and celebrations. Lancs Local is here to help you spread the word about your unique business and to see you flourish.
With our ever growing customer base, social media plan of action and digital marketing skills, Lancs Local will increase your audience and promote you for free! We actively encourage partners to share videos and photos across social media with us to post, and can regularly update members with new offers and reminders to keep everyone engaged in your products and services.
What is Lancs Local?
Lancs Local is a Digital Card promoting local businesses to local residents. Members pay a small subscription of £2 per month (paid yearly) and have access to hundreds of carefully selected small businesses across Lancashire. Each small business we work with offers an exclusive discount to Lancs Local members. All of the promotion, support and advertising is free or subsidised for business partners.
Partner businesses pay nothing to be involved – there are no hidden costs and it will remain free to businesses forever.
Lancs Local has an active social media presence with a forward thinking plan of action to ensure that your business stays present in people’s minds. We need your help to do this by sharing regular videos and photos with us, especially of customers enjoying your product or service. We highly recommend adding occasional bonuses and deals to Lancs Local members to maintain loyalty and build a happy community around your service.
Lancs Local members receive a digital membership which provides access to discounts on all of our business partners. When customers sign up they can opt in to receive information and discounts for specific categories meaning that we can use targeted digital marketing to promote your products and services as and when appropriate. As consumers ourselves, we understand the bombardment of information that people are delivered daily; we use this facility wisely to ensure notifications are noticed!
Lancs Local is a community above all else. It is a community of small businesses, a community of support, and a community of loyal customers all rolled into one! We encourage businesses to support one another through our facebook group which you will be invited to upon sign up, and we are always here to offer support, advice and encouragement.
Charity is also very important to us, and for every full membership subscription we donate £1 to a local charity.
