So our first milestone of 100 events around Wales, listed on our website has been reached. It has taken time but with a lot of hard work and a lot of help from our sponsors and ever building network of connections, through all the social media platforms that we share on we have hit it. All Sponsorship money and any revenue that is made from the website goes straight back into the website, promotion and advertising via social media and other marketing areas. As a celebration of the 100 events around Wales we are going to introduce not only our Website sponsorship but also the chance for Welsh businesses to be able to advertise on the website in an area which is currently occupied by Google Ads which will appear on the event pages on a rotation basis. We are going to place limits on the amount of businesses that will be able to advertise (9) so that they get a fair amount of views. We are also limiting our Website sponsors to a maximum of 5 so we have our first Harris Associates (SW) Ltd who have been with us from launch. The website sponsors are not limited to just Wales as we know so many businesses help communities in Wales and may want to help with sponsorship of the website.
Bonus for the last event to hit the 100 Events around wales
As a bonus for Correana White’s workshop being the event to complete the 100 events around Wales they will take up a bonus spot of the advertising for a period of a month. We will then award that space to different companies, groups or charities that have listed events with us in the past or future events with us or even someone or company that helps us share and shout about eventsnwales.com via social media could be awarded the bonus advertising spot. The other 9 advertising spots will be available for welsh businesses to purchase at a cost of £45 per year. If you have your on art work that can be used that would be great and it can be linked to either your homepage of your website or an internal page or even a Facebook or twitter page or group which ever you would like. If you do not have your own artwork we will happily help out to put something together with you.
Website sponsorship is still available with 4 slots which gives you a rotating banner on the top of the website, an area with business description and logo on the sponsors’ page and a smaller banner in the advertising area and the ability to post events for a total yearly cost of £75.
So the maximum total of banners that will rotate on the top of the website will be 5, which will be only for website sponsors and 15 different advertisers will rotate on the individual events pages which will include up to the maximum of 5 website sponsors, 9 advertisers and 1 bonus advert chosen by EventsnWales at random.
Thanks to all for the ongoing support and to all those that have listed on the website since the launch.
We would like to issue an apology to anyone that visited our website today to see events and postings that are not and will not be allowed on the website. For this reason we have now changed our membership settings so that your events will no longer go live straight away, but will be held in a queue for moderation and to be checked prior to being published. We did not want this to happen and for nearly 3 months all events that have been posted have been great events with all the correct images and links to them. We always check all events within the first 24 – 48 hours of being posted anyway to work and help with the SEO of them. But today we had a flood of around 11 events posted by a member that had signed up within an hour to the last event being posted and also a comment being posted but held for moderation on another event. So the website had been hacked by that person. So we have taken these steps not to slow down the process of posting your event but to safe guard us, our members and visitors to our website for the future.
So please accept our sincere apologies if you happened to visit our website and see any of the events that had been listed. We hope that the measures taken will stop any future events of this nature being posted and all details have been passed on to the relevant bodies and authorities.
Apology from EventsnWales
Wow Laugharne Weekend really crept up on us this year and no doubt if you haven’t already got your tickets it has for you too. Last shout only a hand full of tickets were still available so they may have now gone too. So it looks like the Laugharne Weekend 2015 will be as busy if not bigger than the past Laugharne weekend only time will tell.
Who is at Laugharne Weekend 2015?
So if you haven’t already seen the massive line up that are at the Laugharne weekend have you been under a rock? its been doing the rounds on social media let alone on our own Laugharne Weekend 2015 event page. For a full line up check the laugharne weekend website also you can see the local bus timetables, a map of the area with venues and links to check if tickets are still available. I am sure that even without tickets Laugharne will be the place to be this weekend for Laugharne weekend 2015.
