The BID team will continue to run regular competitions on the Bristol Shopping page on Facebook throughout 2017. The purpose is to raise awareness of Bristol Shopping Quarter while promoting the individual retailers who have supplied prizes and to increase our Facebook likes (ensuring more people see our other posts) and newsletter subscriptions. The Valentine’s Day competition prize included a pendant and chain from F.Hinds (The Galleries), a personalised giant heart balloon from Fun Warehouse (The Galleries), a personalised cushion from Snappy Snaps (Union Street), flowers and chocolates from Tesco Metro (Broadmead) and a pair of tickets for a film of the winner’s choice from Odeon Cinemas (Union Street). The Facebook post reached 25,535 people (9,625 organically, 15,910 through paid for boosting) and achieved an excellent engagement rate of 10.5%. It was also promoted on the Bristol Shopping Quarter website and through Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. The competition was won by Sarah Baird, pictured here at Snappy Snaps.
“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.”
