- “So far this year we have been given three Desktops, a laptop, a netbook and more to collect today! I can only put it down to your coverage. I’m beginning to think that you have the greatest penetration of all the media locally – and the fastest responses. You should tell your clients!”

Promoting with Visit Fylde Coast was a no brainer
‘Being at the heart of the local community for the last 12 years, we naturally take our direct marketing campaigns very seriously. Value for money, coupled with broad readership numbers is a commodity which can be difficult to find using some of the local media outlets currently available. After an initial discussion with Jane, promoting with the Visit Cleveleys/Poulton website was a no brainer. The hard work that goes into keeping all the local sites fresh and newsworthy with mounting hit numbers was immediately obvious, making our decision to be involved an easy one. I would highly recommend the visit Poulton/Cleveleys and Fleetwood advertising package as a good way of promoting to both local and far reaching audiences and wish it every success for the future.’ Mike Sanderson, Managing Director, Mike Sanderson Electricals
- “Following the Breastfeeding Friendly initiative, an article and premises list was featured on the Visit Fleetwood website, which led to a greater awareness of the positive health benefits of breastfeeding being highlighted amongst local businesses. This has prompted many more new mothers to access the Visit Fleetwood website to view which premises they can visit, secure in the knowledge that they will not be asked to leave. Also local businesses have expressed an interest in participating in the scheme, and have approached us to ask if their business could also be added to the Breastfeeding Friendly premises list. The website has been most beneficial, in not only raising the profile of breastfeeding, but of highlighting the many diverse facilities available that are welcoming and accessible to young families.”

What People think
“This is just a quick note to say thank you for producing a great website. I can’t actually remember when I discovered this site, but it must have been within the last year it’s really well put together. I live in Blackpool and have done for most of my life and it’s great to have a site that lets us know what’s going on and when.
Today for example, I went to Rossall Point Observation Tower on my day off to do a bit of bird and marine life watching (although sadly I didn’t see any marine life!). If I hadn’t seen this on your website, I would never have known it was happening. I didn’t even know what Rossall Point Observation Tower was! Anyway, that was the purpose of this short e-mail, just to say thanks for all the hard work that must go in to producing such a great site.
Best wishes, and look forward to using the site in the years to come. Hope more people can discover and use it too. I’m thinking of going to the Jazz afternoon at the North Euston hotel next week because of your website. Other places should get involved and get on to the events page. It’s great that you can see everything that is happening on a particular day.”
Your passion and love for the area you live in is evident…
“Just wanted to let you know that I very much appreciate the time & effort you’ve all so tirelessly put in to the recent updates you’ve made to your sites. Please know the dedicated work you so expertly carry out on a daily basis for the good of the community is not just appreciated by locals but by me, living 200 miles away. Your passion & love for the area you live in is evident. That is so admirable & I hope appreciated by many.”
I’m amazed at the amount of up to date information you have on your sites.
