Marketing Fundamentals

Ten steps to creating remarkable website content
Content is the magnet of your website and a key tool in helping to reach your company's marketing objectives. Whether you’re looking to do a complete redesign or just want to make improvements to your website, it’s important to have a solid content strategy in place.

A content strategy will guide your plans for the what, where and when of content creation. With Google's latest algorithm updates, having the right kind of content is more important than ever. And if you haven't touched the content on your website in a while, it is probably due for a refresh. We've outlined some key steps into developing a solid, customer-focused strategy for your website content so the evening will be filled with information and a little exercise to practise what you've learnt.


To confirm your booking (and be among the first 30 delegates to enjoy the free buffet!) please email as soon as possible.

There will be four other sessions during the year, all of which will include a speaker-led discussion on a relevant business topic as well as the opportunity to network with other members and prospective members.

For your diary the dates of the other meetings will be

- all Tuesdays commencing at 5.30pm and concluding at 7.30pm at the RLQ.

Produce Supply Chain - South Holland is the best place to do business?

This report (PDF) produced by Spalding Chamber asks the question, "Where is the best place to operate a fresh produce business in the United Kingdom"?

We have taken the old "Garden of England", Kent and compared it with the new "Kitchen of England", South Holland, to illustrate just how good South Holland really is.
This takes into account the most practical and best cost effective total route to the Supermarket including the processing, packing, labelling, warehousing and distribution for non UK produced goods.

The Chamber would like to say a huge thank you to all sponsors on the night who included:

PSP IT as the main sponsor, Moore Thompson who sponsored the drinks reception, Duncan & Toplis who sponsored the Business Innovation of the Year category, Definitions Health & Fitness who sponsored the Supporting the Community Award, Ringrose Law who sponsored the Customer Care Award, Charmed Interiors & Bookmark who sponsored New/Small Business of the Year, University Campus Holbeach who sponsored the Apprentice of the Year, South Holland District Council who sponsored Business Person of the Year and Butters Group who sponsored Business of the Year.
