North Canterbury voucher scheme to attract more customers

A free new initiative with the aim of increasing consumer spending in North Canterbury by locals and visitors is in the form of an electronic booklet which contains coupons or vouchers offering discounts to customers.

Behind the scheme is the Women in Business North Canterbury group who see the value in offering the opportunity to all businesses in the district.

The networking group meet twice monthly in Rangiora’s Brook Hotel to support each other and the business community.

Natarsha Crawford, a member of WIB, is appealing to local businesses to take up the generous offer before the 2nd June to allow for printing of the booklet on June 12.

“By joining this initiative everyone stands to benefit from the increased number of shoppers that are bound to be attracted to spend in North Canterbury and therefore give a lift to the current downturn in our economy, “ says Crawford.

The participating businesses are able to create their own electronic coupon or seek the help of the graphic designers that have agreed to support the initiative by providing a discounted service. 

There will be no costs to those businesses who have a print ready ad ready to go and those who need to design one will be assisted at a very discounted cost by the generosity of One Agency Waimakariri who has sponsored the project and is paying the associated costs of its production.

The booklet is in electronic form rather than printed form to keep down costs and will be hosted on the One Agency Waimakariri webpage, where it will be available for download. The booklet will be A5 and there will be 4 coupons per page.

 Another advantage of being electronic is the speed of delivery.

“ The sooner we get this out for public consumption, the sooner we’ll see more customers,” says Crawford.

The businesses need to supply a print ready ad by the 2nd June and the booklet, free to the public too, will be ready to be downloaded on 12 June 2020.

If you have a business and would like more customers, you can join the scheme by contacting Natarsha Crawford Mobile 021 0700 799 or email natarshacrawford@oneagency.net.nz
