As we head into a vital seasonal period marketing the town centre and businesses in the area becomes even more vital. Over Christmas our main campaign will lead with an events focus in an effort to draw footfall and raise awareness of the area. Many businesses access our photography scheme which includes posts on our popular digital channels. If you are not receiving this service and are interested, please get in touch and our photographer will be in touch. Our digital summer campaign reached 973,861 users over a 2 month period. We have targets to increase this over the current Christmas campaign in an effort to market Hamilton as a great destination to visit this Christmas. We would like to say a huge thank you to Hamilton’s Made In Scotland Digital Agency for their ongoing support with this work.
We still have some space left for the market on the 17th December. If interested in featuring as a vendor, please complete this form. We are also delighted to have received sponsorship for these events from Lanarkshire People Magazine. Further to this we have a deal in place with Lanarkshire people that provides a 30% discount on all advertising for levy paying businesses in the area.Please state that you are located in the BID area if using this service.
