Pre-Christmas Promotion

It’s good to see footfall returning to Hinckley and Hinckley BID are taking many steps to drive business in your direction and encourage visitors to the town centre This includes our new Fosse Radio Advert, pages in the Hinckley Times and Borough Bulletin, big signs in road-facing bus-stops and a daily push-out on social media - and banners thanking people for shopping in Hinckley Town centre.

As part of our marketing campaign, we have now added a Hinckley Christmas Gift Directory to the popular BID website which we are promoting heavily on social media throughout December. It has just launched and you can take a look here.

If your business has not asked to be included in the Guide, could you please complete this little BID questionnaire which will take just one minute!

Or if it’s easier, you could respond to this email by answering the four YES/NO questions below instead:

  • Does your business offer an Order and Customer Collect service?
  • Does your business offer an Order and Delivery service?
  • Does your business offer Gift Vouchers for sale?
  • Would like some help with setting up an Online Selling Platform in 2021?

Our BID Buzz eNewsletter to the public currently has a circulation of 14,000+ recipients. It will be issued later this week and, as we will promote the new online Hinckley Gift Guide in this, we would like to have as many businesses as possible listed. Please help us to drive new customers to your business, there is no cost for this.

Are you self-employed?

We know that a number of our BID business owners are self-employed. If you are one of these, it may be worth your while logging on to the website below to ensure that you have received your financial entitlements during the Covid epidemic.

Please have a look to see if you can claim a grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.
