Our town our streets video campaign 2022

We know how vital our marketing for the town centre has become. With a reach on Facebook alone of well in excess of 2 million for our promotional content last year alongside the introduction of high-quality photography we hope to have marketed the town as a vibrant destination packed with superb businesses. 

This year we continue with the plan, and we are delighted that many businesses continue to sign up to our photography scheme.

In addition to our extensive town centre marketing, we are launching a new monthly promotional video with the aim to promote the streets within our town. These videos will feature business owners talking passionately about their street alongside video capturing all the positives within each area. We hope that this adds to our current campaign, captures pride in our town and also acts as a sign-post for businesses. We want to ensure potential customers can see what hamilton has to offer and where to find the brilliant businesses in the town centre.

We need your help!…

We are asking for businesses owners, managers, workers to briefly talk on camera about why they love their street. Without your help we can’t make the impact that we need to make this initiative reach as many people as possible. If interested, please click here to sign up.
