Town Centre Manager’s Website:
One of the major issues to deal with in any organisation is communication and communicating with the various businesses and disparate groups in Spalding Town Centre is extremely difficult; especially when you are a one man team.
To help improve communication, I am currently having a TCM website built. This will not only help promote the town, special events and individual businesses, it will also provide a local business information hub. This will provide information on training, advertising and promotional opportunities and the TCM Newsletter will be posted on this. The website will be outward facing to the general public, but will have an information hub which will be for Business subscribers only. Access to this will be free to businesses, who will have the opportunity to buy advertising space; more information on this will be given later. The aim is to launch the website by the end of February 2016.
Although the Spalding website will be significantly different, an example of a similar town website can be found at: www.enjoymaidenhead.com. Initially information for each business will be gained from Google and businesses will then be asked to confirm that they are happy with the entry or to update it. It will also be possible to update entries on an ad hoc basis thereafter.
