Business Support

This is an area to provide some more support to businesses who are part of the Not On The West End project. In the pages below you'll find information about selling on etsy, getting engagement to work the instagram algorithm, what you need to send to be featured, information about any upcoming markets and anything else that might be helpful. 

We also now have a Discord server for Not On The West End businesses - please join! It's a place to talk to other businesses and get advice and offer support, or just complain about the algorithms. We'll be hosting video chats for when you want to work on a project with some company. If you want to host a video chat about a specific topic, or just because you're bored/lonely/want to talk about theatre and cry into your gin, then just let me know and I'll spread the word.

Where are you?

I would like to create a map showing our spread of businesses across the country - I think it would be great to show that we really are NOT on the West End only, but from all over the UK! If you'd be happy to have your vague location on this map (I'm not asking for street addresses, just your town or city or maybe the first half of your postcode).
