Placing a business in historical context is a unique and effective way of interesting customers. This can range from detailing the historical uses and occupants of a building or how a particular trade has long established roots in an area. This information can feature on websites, promotion material and in-house displays. Examples of the sort of material I produce can be seen below, along with testimonials from some of my clients.
Hotels, pubs and restaurants can boost their business by displaying the historic nature of their premises to customers. The property sector many need to know if any events, such as bomb damage, have compromised the structure of buildings. Private individuals looking building histories should visit my house histories page.
Being in a trade with a history in the surrounding area can be used to demonstrate how a business is an integral part of the community. Stories of notable characters, ways of life and the development of an industry are excellent draws in areas which trade on heritage.

Comments from some of my clients
We really enjoyed the report - we put it in sleeves so it is accessible for all to look at. With a lot of people about in the summer, who enjoy history, it is a very welcome addition to the heritage of the King William IV. We've put a copy of the report in each bedroom and one on the reading table in the bar. The displays you made are great and very much what I wanted. I have copied them onto some boards which we will be able to use all year round.
