Yarmouth businesses join forces online

TWO Great Yarmouth businesses have joined forces to increase their presence on the social media websites Facebook and Twitter.

Great Yarmouth’s Imperial Hotel is running a competition to win a free Sunday lunch for two people at its four-star Caf� Cru restaurant. Run in close co-operation with Palmers Department Store, users are being asked to simply ‘like’ both businesses’ pages and leave a comment to qualify.

The competition, which closes on 13 February, has already seen a dramatic increase in local friends for both businesses.

Victoria Taylor, Web Developer at The Imperial Hotel says: “We know that social media is such a powerful tool when it comes to raising awareness your business. We wanted to come up with an exciting competition to get more local friends and engage with our customers, both old and new, and thought Palmers would be a perfect partner.”

Emma Sturrock, manager of PalmerStores.com says: “In today’s tough economic climate local businesses should be supporting each other. We thought this competition was a fantastic way to build up a local following and give our friends the chance to win a meal at a fantastic restaurant.”
