Shop Dorset is designed as a networked shopping site which draws on the growing desire to support local business and promotes an easy way to shop locally with an interesting and broad mix of local retailers.
Shop Dorset has now been live for almost two years, and is rapidly becoming established as the online shopping network for our lovely county! It’s success lies in its simplicity – an umbrella site offering a great mix of local enterprises all accessible via one web address!
We feature an ever-growing number of independent retailers, food and drink producers, artists, craftspeople, attractions and activities, places to eat, drink and stay and much, much more. On board are renowned Dorset brands such as Dorset Cereals, Piddle Brewery and Organix foods, as well as many lovely small businesses.
I’m proud to say we have over 300 Dorset based retailers represented on the site including House of Dorchester, Fudges, Olives Et Al, Summer Lodge, Hive Café as well as many local artists, craftspeople and independent shops. Our great marketing programme includes advertising, Google SEO, social media campaigns on Facebook and Twitter, promotions, competitions, pr and site links. We are also grateful for the work our Retailers’ are continually doing to create exposure of our networked site with their own customer base.
Networking is the buzz word of modern marketing because it is a low-cost, effective way of supporting one another and generating new business. Help us grow Shop Dorset as a great asset for all local enterprises in our county’s rural economy! Join Shop Dorset today!
