Marketing support

As part of our marketing work, the BID team operate the Bristol Shopping Quarter website and the @bristolshopping social media accounts, using these channels to promote Broadmead, The Galleries, and The Arcade, plus Cabot Circus as one fabulous shopping destination. We also promote individual stores.


We create a new listing for each new business opening in the shopping area. Please check your listing and let us know if you would like any details amended.
We also promote your offers, news, and events. Email us the details so we can share them widely.
Independent stores are featured on the Shop The Indies page.

Remember to tag us on your posts, or email us the details of your news so we can promote them.

Every month, the BID sends a Bristol Shopping Quarter newsletter to over 5,000 subscribers. The objective is to share news, offers and events, including introduction to new stores; special events; job vacancies; shopping ideas; and key information about other important news.
All Broadmead BID retailers are invited to submit content, including online deals, good news stories, shout-outs for their teams, and any in-person or virtual activities and events they have planned. The submission deadline is the 21st of the previous month.

We also aim to include a competition to increase the open and click rates. The majority of entrants opt in to receive future emails and many of those also agree to be contacted by our competition partners.

The newsletter is sent out on the first Tuesday of every month (except in January when it is sent out on the second Tuesday).
