Building A Community

July 26, 2021

How have WIW Ltd established communications and helped to build a sense of business community around the industrial estates of Witham?

As our business members know, the BID Manager and Office Administrator of WIW Ltd are regularly seen around the estates and always available to talk to in person, at the end of a telephone or through email to discuss any issues and ideas.

However, we also want to help all our member businesses to access and share information as easily as possible, so we are constantly developing our multi-faceted communication approach. At present, this includes:

  • an active website with regular news updates
  • member business profiles within the website
  • member business vacancy listings within the WIW Ltd website
  • member business offers and event listings within the WIW Ltd website
  • regular notification mailings to our members
  • public social network platforms to help engage with the local community and businesses alike, including Twitter, Facebook. YouTube and LinkedIn;
  • a private Facebook group where member businesses can share ideas and raise any concerns;
  • a quarterly digital member newsletter;
  • regular member meetings (anticipated to return after Covid-19 restrictions are removed);
  • access to a private WhatsApp group for our member businesses;
