The East Northants Business Directory website was created in June 2015. At the end of 2017 the site was re-launched and re-designed (to include a small annual fee and a focus on linking to Social Media to increase marketing exposure for listings).
The site was created by Philip King (from Silverbrook) who is a web designer. To help grow the site, the ENBD Partner programme has been set up.
Benefits of being a partner
ENBD Partners get free membership of the directory website (worth £24 a year).
They also get to share their own knowledge and skills to help grow the site.
They will receive £8 as a “thank you” for each business they refer to the website who successfully signs up. To measure this they will need people they refer to use their reference code/name when applying to the website (or they can sign up via a unique page).
Expectations of ENBD partners
Contribute to the growth and development of the site by sharing ideas and suggestions (an online suggestions spreadsheet will be used for this) utilising their specific skillset.
Understand the process of signing up and all of the benefits of the website, and sharing them with their business contacts.
Share the associated Facebook page and group with their contacts to increase awareness of the site on Social Media.
Submit news articles regularly to the website (highlighting features from their own business or about local business news they are aware of) and sharing these on Social Media.
How to become an ENBD partner
Get in touch with Philip and he’ll take it from there.
To ensure the site grows at a manageable pace the number of partners will be kept small.
