Yorkshires very own Fully Searchable Indie Directory
Searchable by business event or offer type, category, region, city, town, post code, location proximity or viewable interactive map,
The Yorkshire town street is effectively a localised search engine just for the Yorkshire Indie community
We are intent on offering our customers and site users the opportunity to browse, search and shop in confidence knowing that when they use or purchase the services offers, information or products made available to them on the Yorkshire Town Street they do so safe in the knowledge that they are supporting their own communities and contributing directly to their own local economy.
As the project develops we will create localised landing pages for specific cities towns and villages throughout our amazing county making it even easier for you to be found.
If you have already created a local solution for supporting the Indie community, please feel free to promote it on here.
We can assist with creating multiple listings and discuss ways in which we can work together.
With footfall dropping, our shops and premises closing and the uncertainty of what another lock down will bring leading up to Christmas and beyond, many small businesses owners are focussing their attention on creating an effective online presence using the internet and social media in particular as a means to maintain and support their customers.
Sharing truly is caring.
Yorkshire Town Street is a not for profit venture aimed at increasing the online visibility and presence of our Yorkshire based independent makers, traders, artists and organisations now and into the future
We don't use any form of sponsored or paid for advertising on our sites instead opting for a collective marketing approach.
The more people see us the bigger we get and the more effective we become so please, share with your friends, colleagues and local indie community.
Size really does matter.
By creating your listing you are helping to develop a platform that will become Yorkshires own Indie search engine while being large enough to be visible in results across all of the major search engines and social media platforms.
Given the current situation, it will provide focused resource for the growing numbers of people and communities who want to support their local independent enterprises wherever they can.
They will be able to search and browse by location in full confidence that while utilising the services and offers presented to them, they are supporting local independent services, traders, artists and suppliers. Thus, in turn contributing to the sustainability and growth of their local economy.
