We've just finished our update of the Love Ruthin website and we're pleased to be able to offer new advertising opportunities to businesses, groups and events in our local community.
When we first launched this service, it was part of a response to the impact of coronavirus on commerce throughout the district. We developed a system that allowed businesses to advertise their opening hours and covid19 responses such as curbside pickup, one way systems and accessibility information. The response we received was extremely positive and we've decided to keep the service running and extend the capabilities further.
Firstly, we have a shiny new design and have upgraded the branding to reflect the colourful and creative community that we're so lucky to live in. The website will now display content in a cleaner format and is easier to navigate. This new look should help us move forward with some of our future plans too.
Whilst Covid19 is far from over, with most restrictions now lifted, we've decided to remove the Covid19 field from our listings. This section was a little tricky to get right and could often leave people with incorrect information if a business failed to update their information when needed. Instead, we've now included a suggestion for businesses to include any relevant information in their description.
Speaking of descriptions, we have rebuilt this section too. This is now the main focal point of the listing page and we'll be looking to make much more of the descriptions of businesses to show all businesses, groups and events in their best light, aid their own SEO and improve the outward appearance of Ruthin to boost footfall and tourism.
Understandably, some people might struggle to write more content about their businesses so we will have a writing service available when needed too. We'll also have other advertising options including monthly newsletters, articles and social media features.
All of these services are being managed by an experienced team at Snowdon Digital and I believe that with our experience we can make the most of the opportunities that arise to show off Ruthin and its surrounding areas and help the many tireless volunteers and organisations of the town bring back that spark that has been missing from our community for too long.
I'll always give consideration to suggestions so please feel free to email me or if you'd prefer to meet up for a coffee (or a pint) I'll be happy to chat through your ideas and see if there's something we can do to help. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
