Advertising with Business Biscuit

Ever been to a networking event where you gave your business card to 3,000+ business owners, senior managers and decision-makers?

Sounds fantastic, doesn't it? Well, that's what advertising on Business Biscuit can do for your company.

Why advertise on Business Biscuit?

  • We break news stories. Because we are web-based, rather than print-reliant, because of the immediacy of social networking, and because we have our ear to the ground we are often first with the news.
  • The site is supported by a free weekly e-newsletter, daily postings on Facebook and LinkedIn, and daily tweets to around 1,500 followers, which are regularly re-tweeted.
  • Over 50% of subscribers regularly read the newsletter – compared to the 22% B2B industry average.
  • Your advertisement will be easily seen on the home page, not obscured by clutter or hidden on a back page.
  • We will write about your business on the site.
  • Local newspapers and radio stations frequently re-run our stories.

Not only will an advertising campaign with associated editorial bring you fresh business leads, but you'll be helping to support an important free resource for businesses in Wiltshire.

We also have a special package for business clubs and organisations

The Business Clubs section of Business Biscuit is an innovative new way in which Chambers of Commerce, BNI Chapters, 4Networking Groups, FSB Branches, and other networking, lobbying and referral organisations can promote their services and their members.

We offer each club a page on Business Biscuit with 200 words to explain the aims and activities of the organisation, an advertisement on the site, an advertisement on the weekly newsletter, and multiple free entries on our events calendar.

The promotion costs £350 for six months or £500 for an entire year, with individual members – up to a maximum of 10 for six months or 20 for a year – contributing towards the overall cost.

In return, they get a platform on Business Biscuit (including 200 words to talk about their business, a picture, and a link to their website), and benefit from the increased event attendance or membership that promotion on Business Biscuit will bring.

We encourage your members to use a few of their 200 words to explain why they are a member of your organisation – there’s no better advocate than your existing members!
