Ryedale-based retailers are invited to sign up for free online marketing workshops to support their business during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

The webinars have been organised as part of the Council’s Reopening High Streets Safely programme, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. This project helps market towns adapt to and recover from COVID-19.

The following free online sessions, delivered by Client Marketing, will provide retailers with help, guidance and hints and tips to make the most of marketing opportunities in these challenging times.

13 January:     Strategic Marketing Review and One Page Marketing Plan

27 January:     How to use Social Media to engage with customers

10 February:   How to use Digital Marketing to find new clients

Councillor Keane Duncan, Leader of Ryedale District Council, said:

“With in-person shopping trips currently reduced to essentials, we know that it this is a difficult and uncertain time for retail businesses.

“As a Council we’re doing everything we can to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our local economy and help our district to recover and thrive. The Reopening High Street Safely funding has enabled us to provide additional support to Ryedale-based retailers. We hope that local retailers will sign-up for the free marketing workshops designed to help them to meet the current challenges and emerge stronger from the COVID-19 crisis.”
