Chamber members gather for a beautiful morning in Great Yarmouth
Lots of people go into the New Year with a New Year New Me attitude and over Christmas we heard a lot of members saying they are planning on networking more in 2019. They certainly proved they were serious as we kicked off our first networking breakfast of the year at the Imperial Hotel in Great Yarmouth. Over 30 businesses joined us for a morning of networking over a continental-style breakfast.
We had the pleasure of having Natalie Haydon from Affinity Agency join us to talk to the room about the importance of paid strategies and how to use them to your advantage to increase revenue. Natalie gave some really good insights about the importance of paid strategies and encouraged the room not to neglect them. She highlighted that one of the clients she works with were questioning the usefulness of paid search until they discovered it accounted for 50% of revenue in analytics and had an influence on over 70% of sales generated. It was a very informative presentation and one that gave delegates food for thought.
Our stand holders for the day included our feature charity Centre 81 and The Recruiting Office. Centre 81 work with adults with physical, sensory, and other disabilities. They provide two essential services to the local area: a skills and activities centre and a community transport service for the wider community. The Recruiting Office specialise in finding staff for business in: Office and professional services, transport and logistics, and manufacturing and food processing across Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire.
