SaveTheHighStreet.org is offering up to 10 businesses the opportunity to join an intensive 12-week programme to increase their sales and revenue.
Registrations are now open!
Who is this for?
This is open to independently-owned high street businesses of all shapes and sizes, across all industries, in all locations across the UK.
Space is limited so this programme is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The information below aims to answer any questions you might have. We strongly recommend reading it before you register, to make sure that it suits you and your business. This is only for businesses who want to work closely with us over the coming months to do whatever it takes to grow their business in an effective way.
What should you expect if you join?
We would become part of your team, working closely with you to increase sales and build the foundations for growth and revenue for the future.
Everything below is optional, albeit recommended, and included in the programme:
- We will give you access to experts across our team, all championing your success
- We will analyse your market opportunity and your current performance

- We will give you step-by-step guides to make each idea a reality
- We will identify potential suppliers and negotiate the best deals if you want to outsource any parts of your plan
- We may recommend paid-for tools, paid advertising channels and other third-party services that are relevant to your plan
- We will help you set up and check your tracking for all the metrics that matter
- We will monitor and report on your performance and progress

- We will schedule-in and support you on weekly mentoring and planning calls
We’ll be with you every step of the way. If, at any point in the programme, you have some concerns, feel uncatered for, or are confused about anything, we are on hand to make sure you feel confident and clear about what we’re doing together. We will work as a team and won’t consider this programme a success unless you’ve achieved your goals.
How much does it cost?
The cost is £192 + VAT.
That’s just £16/week!
At this price, it’s clear that our priority isn’t to make a profit. Our motivation for this programme is:
- To turn you into an inspiring example of what can be done to grow on the high street, presenting you as a case study to other businesses across the country
- To learn more about how we can provide more intensive levels of support and to learn more about what our clients actually need from us
- To help you to achieve your potential, making another step to supporting the health and future of our high streets
What else would you need to do?
The amount of time you invest is up to you, but the more we do the more we’ll achieve together. We’re looking for businesses that intend to put in at least 1 hour per week but ideally more whenever possible.
You should be open to putting new initiatives in place, with a clear focus and motivation to grow. We will do everything we can to accelerate your footfall, sales and revenue, but we need to work as a team.
Wherever possible, we will give you the option to outsource some of the work if you want to trade time for money while maintaining your dedication to the plan. This is always your decision and, ultimately, our priority is seeing your plan being put into action.
When does it start and finish?
Registrations are now open and will close when we meet full capacity.
The High Street Business Accelerator officially starts on Monday 2nd March 2020 and you can join any Monday throughout March!
Your end date will be adjusted accordingly.
We will schedule a call with your mentor before the programme commences.
