How Chesterfield businesses are shining on social media

Considering the size of Chesterfield it’s surprising that only 59% of business in the town have social media accounts. It’s more surprising that of those, only 36% are active meaning they have posted at least once in the past week.

However, the retailers that are active are engaging, growing their audiences and posting regularly. This has boosted Chesterfields’ ranking in the UK for social media by 8 places in the last month to 44/1300 towns and cities.

Vicar Lane shopping centre has lots of retailers pushing offers and tips on social media. In particular, The Perfume Shop in Chesterfield has its own local account which allows them to engage with the local community and push specific offers and deals.
