BE A PART OF DOWNTOWN BRANTFORD
All businesses in the Downtown BIA area see benefits from the improved local atmosphere and ambience that a successful BIA helps to create. If you are a member of the Downtown Brantford BIA there are many ways you can get involved and make a difference for your community. All members are encouraged to join us at our annual General Meeting to give their feedback, hear from other businesses in the community, and find out what we have planned for the upcoming year.
The Marketing Committee for the Downtown Brantford BIA provides the opportunities for members to get involved. Join our committee and have your voice heard. Help decide what events the BIA gets involved with downtown and be a part of shaping the messaging of our marketing initiatives.
Take part in the promotions that help drive traffic to the downtown core by signing up to be a participating business for the Downtown Brantford Merchandise Certificates. Merchandise Certificates can be spent at any participating locations. They drive traffic to the downtown core and encourage shoppers to spend their dollars downtown.
The Golden Broom contest is an initiative to beautify and improve downtown businesses from within. Participate in the contest and keep your business exterior clean and in good repair and your sidewalk tidy. Downtown beautification has a positive impact on all businesses in the area, and the more businesses that get involved, the bigger the impact will be. Spread the word, and encourage other businesses to participate in The Golden Broom contest.
Communication is a key way members can benefit from being a BIA member. Keeping your BIA informed of upcoming sales and events allows us to promote them through our website and social media. Follow the DBBIA on Facebook and Twitter to find out what’s happening in your community and help promote the area and local businesses to your followers. Respond to surveys and email blasts and share your ideas or contact us when you see something downtown that needs to be fixed or reported. See a new business? Let us know so that we can welcome them to beautiful Downtown Brantford and include them on our website directory.
