Local businesses encouraged to celebrate the Black Country in the lead up to Christmas

To celebrate the diversity and strength of business in the Black Country and the success stories we are proud of, we are once again leading a Twitter campaign in the run up to Christmas 2018 to highlight the achievements of Black Country businesses, people and initiatives from the past year.

The Black Country LEP is encouraging local businesses and individuals to tweet about things that they want to celebrate or are proud of in the Black Country.

Between 1st – 24th December, we will be launching our own ‘virtual advent calendar’ of daily tweets in support of the campaign and would like local businesses to:

  • Identify something they are proud of
  • Post a tweet including a picture to Twitter
  • Include the hashtag #celebrateBlackCountry

On its own, a single tweet holds little power, but a range of tweets from companies celebrating the Black Country and their roots will be noticeable, generating interest in the participating accounts and the wider message.

Let’s spread some Christmas cheer and celebrate the Black Country!

If you have any queries regarding this Twitter campaign, please contact the marketing team on 01384 471163.
