During my 5 year chairmanship of the Dartmouth Business Forum, our website proved to be a valuable tool for communicating local news information for Dartmouth Business owners. It was used to launch successful campaigns about the poor state of Dartmouth pavements, the misleading information on the parking signs on the outskirts of Dartmouth and, earlier on, the need for a successful BID to initiate a long term investment in promoting Dartmouth. With a circulation of about 400, mostly business owners, our local authority representatives and other local stakeholders, these campaigns all achieved their initial objectives.
Sponsored by TQ6 Marketing, This new, non-commercial, website is intended to provide a free and easy means for businesses to keep informed about what is happening in their community. Sharing our experiences and views will help to influence those who make decisions on our behalf. It is these decisions that can have a big impact on the success of all our businesses. The recent debate over the Woofstock festival has been held on this website with many contributors giving their opinions on the discussion.
With the closure of the Dartmouth Chamber of Trade and Businesses website, and now the 2018 closure of the Chamber of Trade itself, we see the need for an up-to-date Business News channel for Dartmouth. This Business News Website will seek to fill that gap by providing business owners with a free source of local information, tips and ideas for developing your businesses and a means of communicating your concerns and ideas to those who are able to help or make them happen.
The initial subscription list will be those who I have met or spoken to during my period as Chairman of the Business Forum, but you can use the unsubscribe button on the email if you don’t want to receive newsletters from this site.
Alternatively if you find this Website useful get your colleagues to subscribe to our newsletters using the ‘subscribe’ tab. Also please send us any business related articles you wish to circulate to the business audience in Dartmouth. We also intend to publish advice we think is relevant to Dartmouth Businesses based on our 19 successful years in the Dartmouth retail sector.
You have heard it said so often that we can achieve so much more by working together!
Thank you for your continued support
