Purpose Media lands prestigious Chesterfield Digital High Street contract

Derbyshire-based digital, web development, creative and video agency, Purpose Media, has secured a significant contract to help local businesses move online and grow their sales and presence.

The agency’s team has been tasked with delivering on the new Chesterfield Digital High Street project that will help 120 traditional bricks and mortar companies.

Funded by Chesterfield Borough Council and delivered by East Midlands Chamber, businesses can apply to set up a digital presence – supported by grants and expert advice – so they can increase their opportunities to trade online and get their brand noticed.

Matt Wheatcroft, Managing Director at Purpose Media, said: “We are delighted to partner up with Chesterfield Borough Council and East Midlands Chamber on this initiative that will benefit businesses across Chesterfield.

“In times like these, trading online could be the difference between growing or losing your business and our team of experts are here to help owners bolster their sales and support their move to digital.”

East Midlands Chamber Chief Executive, Scott Knowles, said: “The pandemic has had a huge impact on small and microbusinesses in sectors such as retail, hospitality and leisure, which have previously relied on their physical venues to trade successfully.

“While we’re all looking forward to visiting these places again as we edge nearer normality, it’s crucial these SMEs are future-proofed and we’re delighted to be playing a key role in supporting businesses via the Chesterfield Digital High Street project on behalf of the funder Chesterfield Borough Council.

“We also look forward to working closely with our strategic partner Purpose Media, which will be instrumental by creating the modern websites, equipped with the latest e-commerce technology, to ensure these much-loved independent businesses thrive in a sustainable fashion for a long time to come.”
