Lift-off: Manchester Markets soar

Lift-off: Manchester Markets soar

Here's an ad for ourselves, after all we like to be versatile.

So when the city came to us with a problem we thought we might help.

The city has a diverse portfolio of markets, from specialist, local and central to wholesale. Between them they bring the whole world of retail together from food and drink via clothing, furniture, and electrical goods to bric-a-brac.

And of course Christmas trees, and those revolving wooden toys made up of Biblical characters that spin slowly when heated by candles. And Michelle Partington's lovely pies from the Savin Hill stall.

But the city needed to tell people about their markets in an up-to-date and modern way. In other words, the markets' communication needed a digital rocket boost of on-line energy.

So Planetcode, the know-how behind ManchesterConfidential.com, got busy.

The result is this: www.manchestermarkets.com

The techies say it's a 'fully content managed website allowing city staff, along with a Manchester Confidential writers, to run and update the site remotely'.

Bless them. Understanding more than the first four sentences of any conversation with those people is difficult: it's outside the normal human register, like a dog whistle.

Anyway, if you have a mooch around the markets' site you'll find all the latest news, full articles, video clips and there's even trader profiles, and the nitty gritty of market life. There's also going to competitions and offers for consumers too.Put simply this site is about re-inventing the markets' world in Manchester in a lively and innovative way. This is the key to what we do: it's about originality, and excitement.

By the way Planetcode brings together over seven years of website development, eMarketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) experience. Both Confidential and Planetcode are proud of manchestermarkets.com. Take a look and get in touch with us if you think we can help you on a digital project.
