The Federation of Small Businesses and The Portsmouth News offer a Business Bounceback

The Portsmouth News have seen how tough the past year has been on businesses so they have decided to do their bit to help by offering a new way for businesses to market – and a lower cost.

The Business Bounceback scheme, sponsored by the Federation of Small Businesses, will help businesses promote themselves at a fraction of the usual advertising or marketing costs to help recover from the pandemic.
The scheme offers 75 per cent off normal rates, a one off, one time fee with no contract, and guarantees a published article in The News and a chance to be featured online.

The News’ business editor Kimberley Barber has been helping businesses to stand out for 10 years. She will help you identify the thing your business needs to shout about, in order to get it noticed.
Whether that’s a new product, an expansion to your team, an award win, or even just simply a change of opening hours – there are many reasons that a business would need to shine a light on itself. Kimberley will help you to find your ‘top line’ and her team will create an authentic article to appear in the pages of The News.

Your company doesn’t need to employ somebody to find the best news, or even write it, let the experienced team at The News do it for you. Not only will your article run alongside the daily business page, putting it in the perfect spot to reach engaged readers, it will benefit from the News’ insider track on what makes attractive content that will engage your customers.

Being in The News gets your story in front of the right people. The newspaper is read by thousands of people everyday. It’s been the traditional route to reach people in Portsmouth for hundreds of years.
It is read by all major news outlets, and is often the starting point of national stories.
If your story has editorial value it will appear on, reaching worldwide audiences of hundreds of thousands of people, as well thousands more across Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.
