With it slowly becoming apparent that the whole of the UK could soon be on complete lock down we have been racking our brains as to how we can help businesses and the wider community.
Despite the Coronavirus it is without a doubt that businesses will still need to tick over, people will still need access to essentials and bills will still need to be paid.
Boost Torbay has always tried to play its part in helping support both the businesses and the community of Torbay.

A lot of businesses will begin to turn increasingly to online methods to help support their business, this is exactly where Boost Torbay can help. Whether you’re looking to increase your Google standing, promote your online event or after a bit of free social media advertising.
We already offer businesses at anytime of the day or night:
- Business Promotion via our social media channels that include #BoostTorbay
- Article submission and sharing via our BoostTorbay.com website and our social media channels
- Event Advertising – even if they are online we can still help promote them for you
Business Promotion via Social Media
Boost Torbay started out simply helping businesses that used #BoostTorbay in their tweets.
Today we’re doing a lot more, we’ve introduced a Boost Torbay Facebook Group, which is perfect for posting your news, online events and offers.
During the Coronavirus outbreak you’re welcome to post offers, discounts and links to your website as well as news that is important to you on a daily basis within this group.
On Instagram, on a monthly basis, we choose our top instagram posts of a particular month.
During the coronavirus outbreak, we’re going to extend this and look for posts about your products.
Therefore if you post a product or a service picture and use either #BoostTorbay, #BoostPlymouth or #BoostExeter on Instagram we will contact you about completing a review about your product and sharing it via our website and social media channels.
We will then link that article back to your chosen product, this is completely free of charge, but we would need details about the product and potentially a sample, which would be returned to you after the review was complete.
Article Submission & Writing Services
Businesses can already submit articles to the website, and we encourage you to do this now more than ever.
Writing an article that is informative and delivers value to your prospective audience complete with a link back to your website will increase your Google standing and help drive more traffic to your website.
Publishing and submitting articles to our website, means they are guaranteed to get scene by an ever increasing audience.
If you don’t feel comfortable writing your own article, during the coronavirus outbreak, we’d be happy to do this on your behalf for a small fee. Contact us to find out how we can help.
All articles will be shared via our social media channels and some will even be boosted completely free of charge.
Online Event Advertising
For businesses that host networking events, seminars or workshops our major piece of advice is if you can take it online do that.
We can then share and promote your online event to our followers and hopefully increase the number of people that you have attending your online event.
There will be no charge for advertising your online event, similar to how there has been no charge for event advertising overall.
Free Virtual Networking Nights
Our own Boost Torbay Networking Nights have had to be postponed until such a time it is safe to reconvene them.
To this end we’re dropping the cost of attending our networking nights, and we’re going online.
Therefore throughout the coronavirus outbreak, business owners and individuals can attend completely free of charge our very own virtual networking night.
So grab your tickets as you normally would
