At The Businesses Community (TBC) St Albans, it’s all about just that!
Business and Community!
We wanted to build something that would help, support and enable businesses in St Albans to get known, liked and trusted – no matter what size or where they were in their business journey.
For us, it’s all about the people behind those businesses.
So what does that mean for YOUR business?
We created daily themes for to give you ideas on how to engage, interact and demonstrate your businesss to a wide audience.
You don’t have to take part in them every day, and you are welcome to start your own conversations and posts – but we wanted to give a structure to enable us all to find out more about each other and what we do, and for that to turn into collaborations and actual business!
Here’s what we came up with:
#MagnetMonday – post a piccie of your TBC magnet at your place of work or with something to do with your business and post on social.
Tag us (@stalbansbusinesses) and we will do our best to share – don’t forget to include a link to your website – it’s great publicity for your business, and you can show us something different each week!
Take a look here to see how other businesses have used this idea
#TUWYDT – Tell Us What You Do Tuesday – we want to know what you do.
Each week, we want to learn more about you and your business.
It’s very rare that from one post, or one get together that people know or remember what you do.
Consistency is key in marketing and grab this opportunity with both hands to tell us something different about your business each week.
It can be a simple ‘Hello, I’m Sue from Popdance and we teach people from aged 3 to 103 dance routines to pop music from the 80s, 90s and 00s” – to photos of Popdance in action, to videos, to facebook lives. Consistency, consistency, consistency!
#WednesdayWisdom – share some wise words with us all – what motivates you, what drives you, what helps you to run your business.
It could be an app that you’ve discovered that’s saved you tons of time
It could be sharing your expertise with the group
It could be a way of working that’s really helped you
What can you share with others that could help them in their businesses?
#TUWYWT – Tell Us What You Want Thursday – what do you want for your business?
How can we all help each other?
Do you want an intro to a client you’ve been wanting to work with for ages?
Do you want feedback on your website?
Do you want to get together with other businesses?
What do you want? How can we all help each other?
Don’t ask, don’t get!
