Newark Business Club’s new website was formally launched at this Fridays breakfast meeting (5th August). Designed and built by award winning brand and interactive developers, Bazzoo, the responsive website boasts a number of new and exciting features to enhance the user experience.
PR guru Kerri Saxby, said she “loved the facts and figures page with its animated statistics”.
A short film telling the story of the club is embedded into the home page, which explains the work of the Business Club and how it engages with stakeholders and the wider community to improve the business environment for organisations in and around Newark.
A members directory, lists businesses that are members of the club and provides details of the services that they offer. Over 1000 businesses are included from multi-nationals to small one person enterprises. One of the first new members to sign up to the FREE members directory was Rob Allen, founder of RedFox Strategy.
NBC has some very active committees, including the Action and Retail committees which are committed to working on behalf of members ‘to create and sustain an economic environment that will make Newark a vibrant and rewarding town to live, work and visit.’
There are many opportunities for members to engage with the club and there are now dedicated sponsorship and advertising pages explaining how businesses can sponsor a meeting, advertise in the monthly newsletter or take a support advert in the Newark Advertiser. Simple to use booking forms make it quick and and easy to register interest.
The responsive website is designed to work on mobile devises, tablets, laptops and desk top computers.
Members of the business club were invited to tender for the design and build project which was let to Bazzoo. They used the project to develop the skills of its graduate developer and apprentice under the supervision of its lead developer.
