The LEP, alongside the 4 Black Country local authorities; Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton, is encouraging local businesses to tweet about their product(s), workplace or staff members.

On Saturday 14 July, we would like local businesses to:

  • Take a photograph of their product(s), workplace or staff

  • Post the picture to Twitter to celebrate Black Country Day

  • Include the hashtag #MadeInTheBlackCountry along with any others which might apply (i.e. #manufacturing, #business etc). Please also mention @officialBCday and tag in @blackcountrylep where possible.

On its own, a single tweet holds little power, but a range of tweets from companies celebrating the Black Country and their roots will be noticeable, generating interest in the participating accounts and the wider message.
