We teamed up with Caroline Ansell, MP for Eastbourne and Willingdon, to create Eastbourne's very own website for small and micro businesses. Since going live a couple of weeks ago, the site has attracted over 100 local businesses, who have now signed up free of charge.
We have had nearly 1,700 unique users visit the site and 500 of those have made return visits.
Although we have not paid for any advertising yet, the Made in Eastbourne social media pages have had 10,000 page views and 106,000 hits.
The feedback received from sellers so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
If you are a local crafter or artist or if you have a small or micro business in Eastbourne, visit the site and list your businesses for free now.
