A FREE website address, e-mail address and domain name are being offered to every Shirley business that attends the latest Shirley Town Centre Partnership event next week.

Billed as an evening of magic marketing tricks, it’s also an opportunity for Shirley business leaders to meet up and network.

“They can walk away with a free website and some hot marketing tips which won’t cost their business a thing to implement, with advice from our marketing magician, Stefan Drew,” said Becki Wood, Shirley Town Centre manager.

The free, tailor-made event is for Shirley Town Centre Partnership members and interested Shirley businesses and, thanks to a Government sponsored initiative, will only cost an hour or two of time.

“The aim of this event is to kick start some marketing activity for businesses who have found it hard to spend anything on promotion over the last year or two – with free marketing there’s no excuse!” said Becki.

“What’s more I’ll be giving visitors an update on what’s happening in Shirley at the moment and other useful information which may be of help, as well as asking for feedback on what I can do to support local business.”

The event is organised by Shirley Town Centre Partnership and is being sponsored by The Village Hotel, off Stratford Road at The Green Business Park.

There’ll be a free guided tour of this modern new hotel which offers a variety of fun events, a well-equipped gym friendly bar and fine restaurant.

The event, which is on Thursday, July 8 at 5.45pm, is free, with free parking and complimentary refreshments and the famous Village Hotel Buffet. Places are limited so call Becki on 0121 704 8752 to reserve a place or email bwood@solihull.gov.uk.
