Networking group’s website transformed

Posted onPosted on 23rd Dec
Award-winning business development and networking group Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 has revamped its website and digital marketing, thanks to new member Copper Bay Digital.
Copper Bay, which is owned by Mansfield-based Chris Morledge and has offices at Ransom Wood, has completely reworked the website of 2020, adding new member-oriented functions such as a calendar and event booking, and a business directory for all companies in the area.
Copper Bay has also been working on the content side of the 2020 operation, with Chris and his team putting together content for the social media channels used by 2020 with the aim of improving reach and engagement.
They have also automated much of the site, revamped newsletters and implemented a system that coordinates emails to members.
Ella McManus, operations manager at 2020, said: “The work of Copper Bay has been transformative. We have had great foundations built up over the years, but they’ve taken the new brief and exceeded our expectations.
“Not only has the website been improved, but are seeing a lot more engagement on social media and more interest in the newsletters.”
And Ella added: “As the area’s foremost business development and networking group, with big plans for 2022, this is just what we needed.”
Chris Morledge said: “It was brilliant to hear that we had won the work, after presenting our ideas to 2020.
“It was great to work on the website, as it really is the hub for local businesses, whether they are members or not.
“These days, websites for member organisations need to be efficient and easy to navigate around. They need to be useful and help members to save time.
“Similarly, the social media for networking groups needs to focus on the people and the faces behind the organisations involved, to tell a tale that resonates with other people who are members or thinking of becoming members.”
