Our Promotion Activity

Virtual Huddersfield is committed to promoting itself both ON & OFF the Internet. This retains existing users and attracts new ones to our featured businesses. We spend more time, effort and money on publicity than would be viable for any individual business websites.
This allows ALL our clients to share in our Publicity Machine.


Below is a summary of past, recent and ongoing activity.

Christmas
Virtual Huddersfield teamed up with Pennine FM to produce an Ice Party Night Video featuring the Huddersfield on Ice Rink. The video was played continuously at Huddersfield on Ice at the Piazza Shopping Centre and Virtual Huddersfield had a
banner up at the rink to promote our activities.

Also in conjunction with Pennine FM and the HTCPL we produced a Christmas Cracker Completion video.
