Share the love of East Yorkshire
As we move in to spring, we’re going to be promoting a share the love of East Yorkshire campaign that we hope you’ll be able to get involved in. We want you to share your favourite locations and memories with us, tag us in photos of your favourite East Yorkshire location using #VisitEastYorkshire.
Make sure to tag us in any Valentine’s Day deals you’re promoting on Facebook and Instagram so that we can share them across our channels too.
Visit East Yorkshire Photgraphy Facebook Group
This group is for anyone who loves to take pictures of gorgeous East Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Wolds and wants to share them!
As managers of Visit East Yorkshire social media and the visiteastyorkshire.co.uk destination website we’re always on the lookout for the perfect snap to promote the destination and so we want to create a community of photographers (amateur, professional, passionate or just like snapping while you’re out and about in the area) who want to share their snaps and have their images featuring on our website and social media.
We’d like to encourage as many local businesses who are also handy with a camera or just like taking a few snaps while out in the area to join our new Visit East Yorkshire Photography Group.
Have your say!
The Aura Innovation Centre and the University of Hull in conjunction with Lampada Digital are inviting SMEs and organisations in the Humber to complete a quick survey to help shape what low carbon business support packages are available for businesses over the next decade. Take part here.
Shop Local Online
We are promoting our Shop Local Online page across social media and marketing campaigns, in order to support independent businesses in the East Yorkshire area and to encourage shopping local. See the page here.
If you are a small/medium sized business which is a food, drink, retail, tourism experience or leisure service business located in East Yorkshire and are offering delivery, click and collect, on-line, takeaway services and vouchers, and would like to be featured, please send an image and link to your online shop to firstname.lastname@example.org.
