Limerick-based Wedding Avocado, which is an online marketplace that connects engaged couples and wedding suppliers, are one of the first businesses to be supported by this new fund.
Their business will feature on Virgin Media’s weekly 60” ad break campaign and will also be promoted across Virgin Media’s official social media channels.
The Virgin Media #BackingBusiness initiative is designed to underpin the renewal and recovery of businesses in communities throughout Ireland in response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
It’s open to businesses across the country and aims to give them a national platform to showcase their resilience and ingenuity during these challenging times.
It will run until September, featuring as many Irish businesses as possible, and entering is really easy.
All business owners have to do is to send in a short email, outlining who and where they are, some of their main products or services and how they have coped and reinvented themselves through the current crisis.
The ideal way to do this is to take a short video by mobile phone (including shots of the business premises). You can simply email submissions to [email protected]virginmedia.ie or WhatsApp them to 089 611 1111.
Businesses from every sector will be profiled each week to include advertising airtime, ad creative and production, social media promotion, PR activity, content features and exclusive Virgin Media Business support package.
