Town centres are the lifeblood of our local economies, and vital to their success now and in the future are the local independent retailers and businesses who offer a range of goods and services unique to their areas.
But in hard-pressed economic times, when competition can be tough, these businesses need all the support they can get and the Forfar Dispatch and Kirriemuir Herald have joined up with Forfar-based housebuilder Guild Homes to offer independent business a much-needed boost.
A well-established property developer which enjoys an excellent reputation across Tayside and the north east, Guild Homes is aware of the effectiveness of advertising and is keen to extend that knowledge and support to other local companies and businesses.
With sponsorship from the company, we’re offering businesses throughout the Forfar and Kirriemuir areas the opportunity to expand their markets and reach potential new customers by advertising through our newspapers and websites.
We’re looking to profile one business every week starting in our editions of Thursday, April 3 which, for the sum of £150, will receive a full-page feature in both titles (usual cost £1,530).
This package also includes exposure on our websites with social media back-up and support to help promote any special events or offers.
The offer is open to any type of business, whether you’re just starting out and needing that extra bit of exposure to help attract and build up your customer base or well-established and keen to reach new customers
The only conditions are that you’re independent and within the papers’ distribution areas.
To take advantage of this fantastic package, all you have to do is send us a marketing plan detailing your future proposals and projected development for your business, along with a short written submission of up to 300 words detailing why you think your business deserves to be chosen.
Entries can be e-mailed to email@example.com or sent/handed in to our office at 117-119 Castle Street, Forfar DD8 3AH.
