Calling all Black Country businesses! Do you have a product or service you’d like to promote to FinditintheBlackCountry’s 22,000 members? Check out Marketplace, our brand new module.
FinditintheBlackCountry is designed to help local businesses hear about the latest opportunities as soon as they become available and promote themselves on a widespread scale. We’re continuously reviewing and refining FinditintheBlackCountry to ensure that its 22,000 (and growing!) members continue to benefit from it as much as possible.
Welcome...to the world of Marketplace
Marketplace is the latest feature to be added to the FinditintheBlackCountry website, which enables members to submit special offers.
This brand new feature has been created to encourage FinditintheBlackCountry members to work together to develop good working relationships.
By offering exclusive benefits over and above what’s offered to other businesses, users are not only supporting the FinditintheBlackCountry network, but promoting its core element of buying local.
What are the benefits of using Marketplace?
As well as actively supporting buying local, Marketplace members also stand to benefit from increased sales potential, as well as exposure to new and existing FinditintheBlackCountry members.
How does it work?
It’s really straightforward. If you’re a free subscriber you can create up to three listings per month to advertise a product, service or local offer for just £5 per post. Alternatively, if you haven’t already done so, you can upgrade to Pro Subscription, which means you can create three posts a month, for free. (For more details about the benefits of having a Pro Subscription, check out this article).
You’ll need to have the following information to hand when you create a listing:
• Summary (1,000 characters)
• Description (8,000 characters)
• Reference number
• Days until closing (maximum 30 days)
• Image uploads – one main image (maximum allowed file size is 4MB)
• An additional four images can be added
• Applicable sectors
So, there you have it, an overview of the brand new Marketplace feature. We’re looking forward to seeing you on there! Got any questions or want to find out more about Marketplace?
