The BID team will continue to run regular competitions on the Bristol Shopping page on Facebook throughout 2018. 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 variety of gifts and vouchers donated by Thorntons, Parsons, London Camera Exchange, Pret, St Peter’s Hospice Shop, Slater Menswear, Odeon, Consol, New Room Cafe, Specsavers, Tesco Metro, Cococheno, Marks & Spencer, Lush and No.1 Currency . The Facebook post reached 9,516 people (1,511 organically, 8,005 through paid for boosting) and achieved an incredible engagement rate of 40%. It was also promoted on the Bristol Shopping Quarter website and through Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Almost 1,000 people entered and the winner was Deborah Jenkins Lewis, pictured here at Tesco Metro with manager Chris Pitchell.
“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.”
