What's the Best Market Level for your Business?

Which Market Level?

We’ve designed the marketplace with all sorts of organisations in mind - so there’s a space here for everyone. Whether you’re a bricks-and-mortar business, a solo entrepreneur or artist - or anything else in between - you can opt in at a level appropriate to your business requirements.

Setting up your virtual market stall will put you in front of people ready to find, follow, book and buy from you - while you join the movement that puts small businesses first, to help Argyll, and each other, thrive.

Mini-Market Stall

Showcase your business with a Mini Market Stall, which includes a brief outline of what you offer, logo, one image, and contact details. Potential customers will be able to search and find your business based on keywords, business type and location, then go directly to your website to support and spend.

It's a quick & easy self-setup process and costs less per month than your daily coffee and cake! As a Market Argyll member, bespoke marketing packages will also be available to you so you can increase your business visibility and reach an even wider audience.

Best for driving quality leads & website traffic
  • Lowest level investment
  • Outline your offer
  • Display contact details
  • Appear in customer searches
  • Drive traffic to your website
  • Marketing packages available
Recommended for: well established hospitality or retail businesses with a strong online presence & existing website.

Stand-Out Stall

Opting in with a Stand-Out Stall will allow you to showcase your business at a premium level.  In addition to everything already included with the Mini Market Stall, your business will feature more prominently in search results and you will receive a dedicated business profile, which gives you a one-page site within Market Argyll. This business page is fully optimised for search engine rankings to help you get found online even outside of the virtual marketplace.

For those businesses who want to show up online, but perhaps don’t have the resources to build something bespoke right now, this is a great alternative and offers exceptional value when compared to the normal associated cost of hosting and designing your own website.

Styled with your branding and injected with your personality, market-goers can get to know your business and what you have to offer. As the name suggests, a Stand-Out Stall gives you a professional presence that leaves a lasting impression, so that you can really stand out on the marketplace. It makes it easy for people to find you, follow you, book with you and buy from you. What more could you want?

Well, you can also highlight whether you are operating differently due to COVID-19 restrictions, upload any guides or menus you'd like to display, and build your social media following with direct links.

Best for Businesses who want to boost their online presence & make a lasting impression!

This makes this market level an attractive and valuable option to businesses of all types and sizes, whether you have an existing website or not, as it aims to boost your visibility, improve your online presence and ultimately, increase your customer base.

  • Low level investment
  • Premium feature in search results
  • Dedicated business profile
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Make a lasting impression
  • Highlight COVID operations
  • PDF Menu, Guide or Price-list
Recommended for: Service providers and small businesses. Particularly valuable to business owners who do not yet have a good website or strong online presence.

 

Market Professional

The Market Professional level is *coming soon* to enable entrepreneurs, artists and service providers to sell their products, packages and events directly on the marketplace.

Best for making online sales!

Convenience is key to consumers, so being able to find what they're looking for and fill their baskets in a few simple steps will be a welcome addition to the local shopping experience. Everything in the previous level is already included, and Market Pro members automatically receive additional promotion to highlight their offers and drive more sales.

Recommended for: Artists, solo entrepreneurs, service providers and product-led businesses.

As you can see, there’s something for everyone, with each Market level offering distinct benefits, great value and significant return. This is only just the beginning for the Market Argyll platform, with huge plans in the pipeline to enhance community and collaboration, support small businesses and increase local opportunities.

Whichever level works for your business, take advantage of the introductory offer: register for FREE and pay nothing until 2022! Nothing to lose, everything to gain.
