Steamship Company Offering Free Business Promotion

The Steamship Company is offering free promotion for businesses to Skybus or Scillonian III passengers.

For the fourth year, a booklet of vouchers giving money-off at a variety of businesses is being produced.

It was marketing manager Jackie Hayman’s idea and she hopes there’ll be more take up for 2013.

Coupons in the handout bring price reductions for visitors who can use them at the point of purchase. So far St Mary’s Hall Hotel, The Atlantic Hotel, The Foredeck and St Mary’s Bike Hire are amongst the businesses that have taken up the offer.

Jackie says she feels it’s particularly good for businesses that are out-of-the-way and which don’t benefit from passing trade.

She says if she gets fifty sign-ups, they’ll be able to accommodate everyone.
