Vodafone introduces social media ‘boost’ for small businesses

Vodafone has launched a new offer for its small office/home office (SoHo) business customers, which will help small businesses to benefit from free social media advertising.

With the ‘Digital Marketing Boost’, businesses with up to nine employees will receive a £200 social media advertising credit. These businesses will also receive a bespoke one-to-one digital consultation with a V-Hub advisor and access to the V-Hub by Vodafone digital business support website, including access to Vodafone, Enterprise Nation, Cisco, and Samsung’s joint ‘business.connected’ training initiative.

“We’re delighted to launch this new offer which aims to resolve some of the key challenges Britain’s micro-businesses face when marketing their products and services online and also to deal with the changes to their ‘real life’ office requirements,” said Andrew Stevens, Head of UK Small and Medium Business at Vodafone. “By assisting with some of the costs and providing expert resources and guidance, Digital Marketing Boost provides small businesses with everything they’ll need to effectively manage and execute their own successful digital campaigns, which we hope will help stimulate growth and secure their long-term futures.”

As an additional layer to the offer, businesses will all gain an exclusive 50% discount on a monthly ‘WeWork All Access’ membership for six months. This membership gives them access to hot desks, meeting rooms, and private offices at WeWork locations around the world.

The Digital Marketing Boost is available to all new and existing SoHo businesses who take out or upgrade to three or more Vodafone Unlimited mobile plans.
