Our Story

Welcome to Bdaily. We are an online publisher of UK regional business news. In addition to timely news, advice and opinion content, we also provide bespoke online advertising and content marketing services to our valued commercial clients.

Unlike other news providers, we operate as a digital technology company first. This means we’re able to provide editorial and advertising services without the anchors of a traditional publishing outlet.

If you’re an interested and active member of the UK regional business community, we’re ready to work with you.
