Are you a local business that would like to get the word out about what you do in the local community?
If so, you should consider WynnumCentral as a way to do it. Why? WynnumCentral is one of the ‘go-to’ online news resources for what is happening in Wynnum, with a focus on the central shopping precinct.
Wynnum itself has a population of around 12,000 people. The WynnumCentral website (in the 12 months to March 2019) had 18,000 users and 22,000 ‘sessions’ (ie visits). We also send a regular local news email (WynnumCentral ENEWS) to around 3,500 people and have just under 3,700+ Facebook likes (although popular posts are often seen by 5,000+ people on the platform).
The initiative is primarily supported by local business group Wynnum Business. Membership of Wynnum Business gives members access to a certain amount of exposure on the WynnumCentral website, in the regular ENEWS email and on our social media channels, including via business profiles which feature in the news section of the site.
The website underwent a complete refresh early in 2018, making it much faster and more accessible on mobile devices, which account for around 60% of all visitors. It is also now a secure site (ie all communication is encrypted and it shows up on browsers as ‘https:’).

Business Profile in News Section
People love to read stories. A business profile is a story about a local business – who they are and what they do (we have a small team of writers that does this). The current marketing terminology for this sort of approach is ‘content marketing’ and ‘native advertising’. It works for major national companies, and has driven the popularity of the WynnumCentral site, and continues to work for our members and advertisers.
At the same time as getting your name – and what you do – out there in an accessible way, you are also helping to support the initiatives of WynnumCentral to encourage the revitalisation of the area.
All members and supporters are acknowledged everywhere, both online and on any printed material such as flyers and posters for events we organise. To see what we have written about our members, check the ‘Meet Your Local Businesses’ section on the home page.
