This post, published August 2018, but back-dated to May 2015, looks back to the year that the Kilbride Cafe (next door to us), opened its doors. Our neighbour DJ and ourselves anticipated that our two businesses would prove highly complementary … but to get off to a good start, we decided to join forces and pay for a double-page spread, designed by Jonathan, published in The Heb, a glossy annual magazine distributed free of charge throughout the Outer Hebrides. It proved to be money well spent! That said, our location, overlooking a little bay with a white-sand beach and stunningly beautiful view across the Sound of Barra, and with the main arterial road through the islands passing right by, we’ve never felt the need to repeat advertising of this kind. In fact, we ourselves don’t spend anything on promoting the Hebridean Woolshed – we already get all the business we can handle, just with our own website and Google’s My Business free applications.
