Grow your Business Sessions - 11th March

We know that running a business is hard. As a business owner you not only have to do the day job but often have to do the administration, bookkeeping, social media, marketing and a hundred and one other things. 

Kendal BID may be able to help you. We are offering Free "Grow your Business Sessions" on the 12th February and the 11th of March.

Industry experts will guide you through ways you may be able to increase income to your business. We are also working with teams of people who specialise in business support. If you feel you could do with some support please contact and we can connect you with someone who could help. 

Depending on what support you require rates range from £15 to £30 an hour.


DISCOVER app - Virtual TIC

The DISCOVER app promotes Kendal and Kendal's businesses, The app is your chance to promote your business to the outside world, with between 1500 and 1700 views a week. Make sure your business is on the app and your details are correct. If you can promote an offer then even more people are likely to visit you.

The app is hopefully going to become even more exiting soon as we are working with the DSCVR team to produce a virtual TIC where people in the town will be able to scroll though on a large touch screen to find all of the attractions, events and businesses in the town.
