In March the BID team promoted a Mother’s Day competition on Facebook. The prizes for this competition were all donated by Bristol Shopping Quarter retailers and included a personal styling session and free outfit from Taking Shape, flowers from The Flowerman, a gift set from Lush and a bag from Hotter Shoes. The total value was £200.
The competition post reached 21,560 people (8,584 organically and 12,976 via Facebook’s “boosting”) and resulted in more than 100 new page likes. The post was shared by 243 people.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
