What’s On In My Town, who, for the last 9 years, have been keeping local residents informed on local events and news including traffic, launch their Business to Business (B2B) support networking group across their network.
There are over 20 What’s On pages across the UK with over 150,000 followers. As well as local community support, they have also been advertising local businesses since 2012. Helping businesses big and small to reach a new audience.
In 2018 WOIMTG looked at launching a B2B service, but something wasn’t right with the set-up of the group and what it offered its members. It was a very basic Facebook group and a website that didn’t work or do anything for its members.
Paul Taylor, owner of WOIMTG said “It wasn’t what I wanted or what our members deserved. It had its successes with members helping each other but it didn’t offer value for money which is what What’s On is all about”
When the pandemic started people had more on their minds then an online networking group. This allowed WOIMTG to reflect and look at the group and decide what was needed to make this work for members.
“Covid taught us all about Zoom and networking online but after you leave the chat what else was there?” Paul said “So I looked at this and decided it was time to bring back My Business Support but making it bigger and better then before offering value for money for small businesses who need all the help in the world at the moment” “Local networking is great but with MBS you can talk and deal with businesses all over the UK”
Tim Mitchell who is part of My Business Support said “When I set my business up over seven years ago, I often felt out of my depth. Yes, I had a business plan and the skills but I suppose I did not really believe I could be a business owner. It was very lonely”
“Being in a group like this you will be able to get a honest opinion from fellow professionals. Its ok asking friends and families what they think of your ideas but they will always tell you what they think you want to hear. With my business if My Business Support was around I would have saved myself time and money. I’m looking forward to being part of My Business Support which will plays such an important role for small businesses.”
