Businesses can share ‘it only takes a minute to shine’ video

BUSINESSES in the Bradford district are being given the chance to showcase themselves in a short video. The Telegraph & Argus, Bradford Means Business and LOCALiQ all want local businesses to send in a video.

T&A sales director Steve Lowe said: “Why not share a video with us and we’ll put them all together in a special dedicated where we can showcase the fantastic businesses we have in Bradford and around us. In less than 60 seconds tell us about you, your business, what you offer, a message to your customers and to potential new ones.” Each video will sit as part of a Connecting Local Business campaign in the T&A, on the Bradford Means Business website and their YouTube channel – all for free.

Steve said: “Over the next few weeks we are all sitting waiting for businesses to be kick-started back into action, so why not take a few minutes to record what you and your business has to offer, whether you are closed and looking forward to welcoming customers back, open behind closed doors or trading as normal, you all have a story to tell and a reason we should use your goods and services when it is safe to do so. Once you’ve sent us your video, visit our Bradford Means Business Facebook page, click to attend our ‘Love LOCAL business’ Facebook Event and along with every other business who sends us a video we will create a community of fellow local businesses all sharing their videos too.”

The Facebook event will take place in the week commencing February 22 – supported by editorial coverage in the T&A, Bradford Means Business and our weekly newspapers alongside an online marketing campaign – so together let’s shout about you and your business and get your customers excited too. All you need to do is create your own 60-second video, ideally film it in your shop, pub or restaurant to highlight what you offer; you could be open, closed, open behind closed doors; you could be a tradesman that shares the story of what you do and the work you have done; and click our event page on Facebook and click to attend

Send the video in this format: Record on your mobile phone in portrait mode; no more than 60 seconds; include your name; where you are based, what you do/offer and why we should use you; be smiley, welcoming and yourself; email your video to with your contact details including contact telephone number. The deadline for videos is February 15 at 5pm.

Steve said: “In return, we will put your video on our Bradford Means Business website and YouTube channel; we will create a dedicated page on the T&A website for those wanting to have your video seen there too; we will create an editorial and advertising campaign to tell the 600k plus readers/visitors of the T&A/Craven Herald/Ilkley Gazette and Keighley News to see your video and we will run a Facebook event week commencing February 22 so the Facebook world to find your video too.”
