Liverpool entrepreneurs are definitely in business with new support portal

LIVERPOOL based creative social enterprise, Brava Design, were commissioned by Liverpool Vision to develop the website for Liverpool’s in Business.  Launched by Liverpool Vision, brings together a range of local enterprise support agencies and is an online portal for local businesses offering a comprehensive guide to business support and guidance, making it easier for local entrepreneurs across the city to get the support and guidance they need.  Brava Design worked with Liverpool Vision to create a clear and concise website which would allow busy people and those just starting out to search for the appropriate support using a simple selection tool. Brava Design also included news and events elements in the website, supported by user generated content.  The chief aim was not to design a website which was shiny and bright or difficult to use, but a simple, easy-to-navigate portal that ended up with the user getting exactly the advice and contacts they need.

Stephanie Hosny, Business Manager at Brava Design said:- “When we were first commissioned to develop we were pleased because – as a business ourselves – it was a project that would make life so much easier for local entrepreneurs. Being a social enterprise, we really understand the value of support networks and always try to get involved in projects that reflect our social remit.”

Jerry Spencer from Liverpool Vision said:- “Brava Design have done a fantastic job with the Liverpool’s in Business website, we have had great feedback from local entrepreneurs who often struggle to access tailored and appropriate support. It’s a great job done well, to specification and cost.”

AdGates roll into Merseyside

TRAVELLERS on Merseyrail are set to become the first in the region to experience a totally unique new form of interactive advertising.

T4 Media is the UK’s leading outdoor transport advertising specialist. Founded by serial entrepreneurs Marco Pieters and Paul Daniels, it has made a significant impact in recent years with its award-winning network of AdGates or walk through billboards.

Already available in other parts of the country, AdGates are now available exclusively on the Merseyrail network, and will very shortly start appearing at a number of stations including Liverpool Lime Street, Liverpool Central, Liverpool Moorfields and Southport.

AdGates convert automatic ticket barriers in train stations into unavoidable interactive gateways, requiring travellers to literally walk through a brand as they leave the platform. Currently more than five million rail travellers pass through AdGates nationally every day.

Explains Marco Pieters, CEO of T4 Media:- “AdGates are a totally unique form of accountable advertising and I am sure will prove to be a huge hit with the hundreds of thousands of travellers using Merseyrail in that all-important ‘third space’ between work and home, when passengers are particularly receptive to receiving advertisers messages"
