Small Business Saturday 2016

We’re delighted to announce that Primary Image is joining the national Small Business Saturday bus tour next month, offering free advice to local business owners. We will be onboard the bus during its stop in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, on Wednesday, 16th November.

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots campaign, which highlights the success of small businesses and encourages consumers to support and shop at small businesses. The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact. This year, the 2016 Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday, 3rd December.

According to Small Business Saturday, over 60% of consumers are aware of the campaign. On Twitter last year #SmallBizSatUK trended at number one all day and over 75% of councils across the country actively supported the campaign.

Want an expert opinion on how you can improve your small business website? Something not working right? Got a question on using WordPress? Want to rank better in Google? Here’s your chance to speak to an experienced web designer.

Come along to the Small Business Saturday bus, where Mike (lead designer at Primary Image) will be on hand to individually review your website. We’re running a drop-in session where Mike will suggest tips on how your website can be improved. They’ll be no selling or sales pitches – just impartial, useful advice for you to take away!

Mike has been designing websites for over fifteen years, including for large customers such as National Express and Transport for London. He founded Primary Image in 2010 and speaks regularly at national web design conferences, particularly about using WordPress.

So do come down and say hello!
