Chamber website is tops

PostedWednesday, 05 April 2017

Kirkby Lonsdale Chamber of Trade has welcomed new members in recent months, who are now enjoying the benefits of exposure on the Internet.
The town’s own dedicated website,, is one of the most popular town sites on the web. It receives, on average, more than 5,000 visitors each month, peaking to almost 7,000 last December when the town was publicising the new Christmas Market and Fair.

Each visitor, on average, looks at three pages, or three different areas, and research indicates that visitors find the information they’re looking for easily and quickly. In the past year, there’s been a 25% increase in visits, thanks to improvements around content and design. That work continues.
There are excellent benefits for businesses in the Kirkby Lonsdale area, not least the free listing offered to all. Businesses who join the Chamber receive a package of benefits, including more detailed listing, plus discounts when advertising. Listings can be changed or updated at any time.
