Social Monthly Membership of Lymington.com extends our Annual Membership further, giving local businesses the opportunity to benefit from regular, monthly promotion on Lymington.com, our social media platform and in our weekly 'What's On' newsletter to subscribers. Promotional PR and communications are planned over 12 months, with regular consultancy, reporting and measurement.
We needed a way to increase our reach in the New Forest area. Social Monthly Membership of Lymington.com has dramatically expanded our coverage, with great results, whilst regular contact from the team focuses us on our own social media posts and communications.
Social Monthly Membership gives you the opportunity to reach out further into your local market and have your business, products and services endorsed by third party recommendation. Your business will stand out, ahead of your competitors - and it will not appear as you 'blowing your own trumpet' but as qualified endorsement.
During our first consultancy meeting, we discuss the key messages you would like to communicate and draw up a 12 month social media communications plan which encompasses all the key events, timings and offers that you work to over the year. We will also look at your Lymington.com Featured Business Page and assist you with updating it with detailed information, images, video and links.
Every month, we will then promote and champion your business on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and in our ‘What’s On’ newsletter to subscribers. Your social media communications plan will be used to schedule your posts - but of course we will amend the plan along the way if messages need to change!
Having your business promoted on the Lymington.com social media pages effectively provides you with a 'testimonial' or 'recommendation' that would be difficult to achieve on your own social media. It gives you the opportunity to reach different people, who might not already be aware of you or follow you on social media. We can also boost specific posts on your behalf to make even more of an impact and reach further.
We strive to keep Lymington.com a positive environment, promoting the great things about Lymington and the New Forest, rather than other media which can often senstationalise the negatives. On Facebook, for example, we post positive, interesting and encouraging items of news and events, whereas there are groups where business messages get lost amongst the general gripes! In fact most 'groups' do not permit businesses to openly promote themselves.
We will be in regular contact with you by email and/or telephone to check details, with regular reporting and measurement. Over the 12 months you will be able to:
And we'll also include you in general articles being copywritten about the area for Lymington.com throughout the year.
