On starting Keeping It Local CIC, it was all about highlighting and creating a database for Business, Trades and Services in rural Kintyre.
Encouraging people to buy local by promoting small businesses, highlighting empty properties and assisting/encouraging small business startups to start in filling the empty properties.
Keeping it Local CIC – Campbeltown and Surrounding Areas have been tasked to Maintain, manage and promote Explore Campbeltown as from 1st October 2021.
Most who know Keeping it local CIC are aware that we have a physical presence in the Heart of Campbeltown where we have been promoting, informing and facilitating tourism since the closure of Visit Scotland here and in Tarbert.
As well as this we have been promoting Businesses, Trades and services and events from all over Kintyre and Gigha through social media, websites and our Digital screens within fantastic Like-minded business premises all over the area.
This will continue however with the addition of this fantastic destination marketing platform we will be extending the offering in line with our own to everyone in the Kintyre and Gigha area for “FREE” yip no change at all Free!!
Keeping it local CIC will still have paid/featured advertising options but they are for generating income for sustainability revenue purposes.
It has been a learning experience with tweaks here and there. Responding to feedback, uptake and interest in services we provide or change to accommodate.
