We communicate

we're a visible, vocal and active member of the business community

We want to be a visible, vocal and active part of our business community. Of course, we need to communicate effectively with the members to keep them informed and engaged and interested in getting involved in HullBID activities. But our communication role goes further.

Talking to BID businesses:

As well as regular reports and updates to members we have regular face to face meetings with BID businesses to stay connected to their needs.

Getting BID businesses talking:

We facilitate a range of forums, bringing businesses together to work on mutually beneficial issues.

Speaking on behalf of the BID:

We provide commentary and expert opinions on the business issues that matter to HullBID businesses. We also deliver support and publicity for BID business initiatives.

We have:

  • Developed a media relations campaign and a sustainable and consistent social media strategy
  • Rethought how we communicate with members – being clear on progress, KPIs and the four strategic pillars
  • Initiated a HullBID awards event for best practice
  • Devised a sustainable and consistent members relationship strategy
