We’ll cover traditional methods such as public relations and offline advertising as well as SEO, PPC and social media. We’ll explore all the options, highlight the do’s and don’ts and ensure that each reader gets optimal return on their marketing spend in 2019.

A Guide To: Making Tax Digital

Four years after the idea was first introduced in the chancellor’s spring budget, Making Tax Digital will finally become a reality for businesses from April 2019. In preparation for this major overhaul to the way tax is calculated and handled, we will publish a thorough guide that will ensure Lancashire businesses know exactly what to expect and how to stay on the right side of the new rules. We want to hear from accountants, IT professionals, finance experts and anybody else who has insight or opinion to contribute. Full details can be found here.

In addition to our advertising-led advice features, we also welcome sponsorship and advertising among our regular editorial features. Contact to find out how your business can raise its profile through association with one of our major features.

Editorial features

Lancashire Hotspots: Lancaster and Morecambe

In this edition we turn our attention to Lancaster and Morecambe. We’ll be looking at the progress being made by the ‘Bay’ Partnership initiative to attract more investment and jobs into the area and examining plans to bring the Eden Project to North Lancashire, which could be a real ‘game changer’ and not just for the tourism sector. We also want to hear the success stories from the businesses playing their part in growing the local economy.

Sector Focus: Creative and Digital

Lancashire’s digital and creative businesses are making a name for themselves across the country. The sector is thriving – with successful and growing clusters creating jobs and opportunity. Burnley has been highlighted as a national hot-spot and there’s a thriving creative and digital community in the north of the county. We’ll be looking at other emerging hot-spots, highlighting innovation and examining how businesses are working to ensure they have the skills to keep moving forward.

Looking Ahead 2019

It’s the start of a new year and we’ll be asking business leaders in Lancashire’s key sectors to peer into their crystal ball and give their views on what the next 12 months holds for the county’s economy. We’ll be asking how prepared we are to meet the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead in 2019 – the year of Brexit.

Lancashire Business Day

We’ll be reporting on our annual Lancashire Business Day gathering – a true celebration of all that’s great about the Red Rose county and those who do business here.
