Inside Croydon is delighted to announce a special offer for locally based businesses, as many of them ready themselves to re-open and work hard to bounce back after the coronavirus lockdown.
Inside Croydon is the only news provider based in the borough that is providing daily news updates throughout the pandemic emergency, our reports being read by more than a quarter of a million site visitors in 2020 so far.
These are the toughest of times for all businesses, and we want to help our friends and colleagues to promote their revised opening hours, new products and offers as they work hard to reach out to customers, old and new, and re-establish the sort of trade which in many cases might have taken them a lifetime to establish.
This is what we can offer you: one week’s free advertising with a “native” advert alongside our daily news coverage, which in April 2020 generated 160,000 page views.
Your ad will also be promoted via Inside Croydon’s Facebook page and our Twitter account, which has 13,000 followers.
The offer is open on a first-come, first-served basis to a select few Croydon-based traders who contact us by email.
We hope that by getting the message out there to the Croydon public, you can get your business to bounce back from the lockdown.
To apply for the free advertisement, and get details of other special discount offers to advertise with Inside Croydon, email us at email@example.com, with the words “Ad offer” in the subject field and contact details for the person who handles your firm’s marketing and promotions. We’ll be right back in touch.
(Terms and conditions will apply – the decision of the website’s publisher is final. The offer is for a limited number of advertisements, and is open for a limited period)
Help us to get Croydon working again – suitably socially distanced, of course.

Perhaps Tony Newman will follow Inside Croydon’s excellent lead and reduce business rates by 30%, backdated to February 2020?
It seems the moral and community-minded thing to do – Local businesses haven’t benefited from any of the council services they have been paying for.
Of course, Tony Newman will be grimacing as he reads this. It’s counter to his instincts as a full-time politician. Question: how is it leaders of other large councils hold down days jobs and have far better ratings than Tony Newman?
