BlackPudding.Club Business Directory Membership
Welcome to the BlackPudding.Club Business Directory Membership guide. Whether browsing or advertising, the primary aim of the directory is to guide users toward the many sources of black pudding available in the market place. And by market place, we mean anywhere you can buy or consume it. Listings are (& can be) included for businesses producing, selling and providing any substitute or complementary products, as a general example, charcuterie.
The directory is basically organised in 5 sections:
- Farmers, Butchers, Artisans and the well-known brands are all included; the pudding makers!
- Any outlet, from the local farm shop to the supermarket chains, from which you can buy your puddings.
- Dining Out
- Restaurants, Gastro Pubs, Cafes or your local chippy, anywhere from which you can enjoy your pudding without having to cook it yourself.
- Hotels and Bed & Breakfast serving up fine dining or a full breakfast with black pudding on the menu.
- A useful list of organisations, food directories and active food bloggers whose content complements the aim of the Club Directory
Placing a listing or advertising in the directory also gives you access to the BlackPudding.Club network of members, subscribers and social media followers. From as little as £2.50 per month, it’s a great opportunity to promote your product or service to an audience who are actively seeking more information about our favourite food.
There are a number of membership plans available allowing for an increased level of exposure across the club network. And if you would like to work with us in creating a bespoke marketing initiative then let us know.
