New website plan aims to boost business in Halesowen

First published in News by

AN appeal has been made for website builders to come up with innovative designs to put Halesowen in the fast lane of the information super highway.

The town's chamber of trade is offering professionals the opportunity to pitch for the chance to create a website to promote events and attractions.

It would also be available for businesses to place advertisements.

Chamber of trade chairman Wayne Edwards said the website would be linked to social media including Facebook and Twitter.

He said: "It's all about creating a buzz. We want a website that is innovative and creative - the best website in the Uk.

"It could help promote all the events and attractions that we have in Halesowen - like the Christmas lights, the Victorian Fair and Halesowen in Bloom.

"It would also be a great platform for businesses to advertise on, and a big boost to those which don't have their own websites."

Companies interested in bidding for the website should contact Mr Edwards on 07903315053.

It's a good idea for a local IT outfit to pick it up but they'll probably be hoping for some more concrete requirements than "It's all about creating a buzz. We want a website that is innovative and creative - the best website in the Uk.". Maybe hold a competition between local schools to produce it.
