Join our 6 week business improvement programme

Save The High Street (STHS) is rolling out a Business Improvement Program (BIP), a completely fully funded opportunity for every business within the North East to jump on, to sharpen their tools of practice ready for post Covid19.

During this programme STHS will work with you and your business to support you through the COVID19 crisis and ultimately look inside your business to improve the efficiency, marketing, product sourcing and the vision of your business. You will also be given access to our various high street champions who have a wealth of experience and knowledge within funding, structure and business development strategies.

The only ‘investment’ from you is a little bit of your time. This is an excellent opportunity for businesses within Stockton to save money on their overheads and increase their profit margins, enabling them to thrive once again!

During the program, our team of qualified professionals behind Save The High Street will be taking you through our cost cutting workshop to help your business save money on all of its current expenditure and service outgoings – The team on average, are saving businesses around £3000 – £4000 per year on outgoings on completion.

In addition to the cost cutting workshop, week 5 of our BIP includes looking at your digital footprint, and highlighting the importance of being a part of the #RoamLocal initiative – The Roam app is the UKs number 1 high street app supporting the shop local narrative.

Roam allows you to have a digital presence with your target audience, which you can communicate to directly, ultimately building your business, its reputation and allowing your best customers to become your biggest advocates.

Andy and Nick, the Directors at Save The High Street are most passionate aout how vital it is, that the Business Improvement Program is provided to businesses at no cost to them at all, meaning that the only investment is your time, and if you sign up now you could save thousands of pounds per year – nothing to loose, yet potentially thousands to gain!
