We thought we’d take a moment to remind you about the platforms we use to communicate the local knowledge we offer you whether you work, rest or play here.
The main source of information is www.HD8network.co.uk which has an online events calendar and organisation directory, as well as news blog page for member’s updates and stories and other interesting reports of activities in the HD8 area.
We have a strong presence on Facebook, with a Page and a variety of Groups.
The focus for the Page is for us to be able to push information out to you guys and for you to like and comment on as you please. The Groups on the other hand it’s completely up to you how they are used (within legal and ethical boundaries of course). Groups are communities on Facebook enabling you to communicate with others with similar focuses. Many use groups for selling items, whilst this was never our intention for this to be the case, it is a powerful enabler for us to recycle the loved items we don’t want any more.
We are also active on Twitter, Linkedin and Google + and dabble with Instagram. Again these are mostly used for us to push information out to you guys, but we are a chatty bunch and love a bit of banter and would love to engage with you about the HD8 area (always with a positive attitude of course!) using these platforms.
For the past 4 years we have held monthly networking events for businesses and other organisations to meet and build relationships, finding new customers, sources of information and shared interests.
We have also held 2 Business Shows, which were full day events revolving around seminars and exhibitors as well as networking opportunities and business relationships being formed and developed.
We have an email marketing circulation, which we want to develop enabling you to pick and choose whether they wish to hear about Work, Rest or Play topics.
But none of this works without you, so whether you Work, Rest or Play in the area, get involved and join in.
Engage with us on social media, visit our website, sign up to our mailing list and if you are an event organiser list your event or activities on our online calendar and if you are a business or other organisation then at least get a basic listing on our online directory.
