Why Join?

If you qualify then why NOT join – it’s free of charge although we sometimes make a small charge for the meetings to cover catering if we can’t find a member to sponsor the food in exchange for  a bit of publicity.

Meetings

  • Friendly and relaxed – no suit required – from accountants to car mechanics, B&B owners and beauty therapists
  • Timed so that you can do a full day’s work and still get to keep  your evening for yourself – we run them from 5:30 to about 7pm about 4 times a year
  • There’s generally a theme or  speaker on a subject aimed at developing and improving your business – there’s plenty of time to chat and we DON’T make you stand up and do a 60—second advert for your business (unless  you want to!)

Website

  • Free entry in the directory – this gives a link to your website which will help your Google ranking – have a look at  the Directory and click on a few members entries and see how many times their profile has been viewed.
  • If you’re too shy to put your photo on there, just put your logo or a picture of what you do, make or sell – it makes the page a bit livelier.
  • You can enter your Twitter username if you have one and get followers this way.
  • Twitter – follow us at https://twitter.com/cravenarmsbiz – we will follow you back and create a twitter list with all members in so that you can get more and hopefully ‘better’ followers.  For a start – you should all be following each other so you know what the SY7 business scene is up to!  Tweet each other some special offers and deals and see what happens.

Newsletter

  • We produce a regular email newsletter with news about members’ press releases, success stories, offers as well as summarising new initiatives coming out of Business Link, local governmen0 etc  – if  they affect business and specially any news of grants that become available
  • Advertise your own business in the newsletter or sponsor an issue and get a big banner at the top
  • We produce a small number of printed copies which are distributed via prominent places


It’s free

  • Enough said?
