Our 1 Year Anniversary!
Updated: Apr 26
Today marks 1 year since we launched the Be Social Cambridge Directory!
As some of you may have been aware, our founder, Samuel Douglas was interviewed yesterday on Cambridge 105 Radio, discussing the foundations of this new business, supporting independent businesses, old & new, big & small through, what can only be described as a difficult year with the pandemic and government changing the way we work, shop, eat & drink.
With today marking the start of our second year, we have reached 280 businesses! We have hosted two major giveaways working with those on our directory in providing the public with unique gifts, featured a selection of case studies following the independent founders journey through these difficult times and ending our first year with the Be Social Cambridge Independent Business Awards!
We can only thank the Independent Cambridge Community in their endless support, by registering on our directory and making us grow into the 'Yellow Pages' of all things indie in & around the city.
With now focusing on the second year, there's plenty more to come. We'll be putting the spotlight on businesses by featuring them as one of our 'Business of the Week' starting this summer, as well as providing the public with more exclusive giveaways & competitions, and more focus on getting to know the independent business community.
For now though, we're focusing on the Independent Business Awards which gives the Public the chance to vote for their favourite business, followed by the panel of judges giving their final verdicts. An open and fair awards, no hidden costs involved, just our way of saying thank you to the business community!
