'Shrewsbury Sessions' to Support Local Business
12 Jan 2023

A series of free advice workshops has been launched by Shrewsbury BID to support local businesses - the first on digital marketing starts this January 25

Businesses in Shrewsbury are invited to attend a series of free advice workshops organised by Shrewsbury BID - with the first session of the year discussing digital marketing tips. 
The Shrewsbury Sessions are open to any business based in the town, and aim to provide specialist advice in a relaxed setting. 
The first event of the year will take place on Wednesday, January 25, from 5.30pm to 7pm, at Stop Coffee Shop in Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, with a focus on digital marketing in a challenging climate. 
Experts from Shrewsbury-based Reech will be discussing how to grow your business online even when the economy’s tough, including tips for social media, email marketing, website design and photography and video. 
Stephanie Mansell-Jones, business liaison at Shrewsbury BID, said she expected a lot of interest in the revamped workshops. 
“We originally launched the Shrewsbury Sessions just before the pandemic, so we are delighted to be bringing them back in a new-look format,” she said. 
“We want to make them as welcoming and useful as possible, because we appreciate that time is precious when you run a business, so every event will be full of information but enjoyable too. 
“The first Shrewsbury Session of the year will be held at stop coffee shop in the museum and art gallery, which is a great space, and soft drinks and nibbles will be provided. 
“I would like to say a big thank you to Reech for joining us for this event, when they will provide a wealth of knowledge about digital marketing for businesses. 
“The event is free and people are welcome to turn up on the day, but if they can book a place in advance that would be much appreciated.” 
Amelia Redge, head of marketing at Reech, added: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Shrewsbury BID for the relaunch of Shrewsbury Sessions and look forward to meeting a host of exciting, local businesses. 
“As we enter what will inevitably be a challenging year, we’re glad to offer our marketing insights and expertise to support. 
 “At Reech, we’re committed to investing in the Shropshire community and working with growing businesses, something that forms the ethos behind the Shrewsbury Sessions.  We hope to see as many businesses as possible at what is sure to be a brilliant event.”
