Events in Wales – EventsnWales 2019
We thought we would start the new year off with a fresh blog post, to let you know about what we have planned, to help promote the events in Wales that are listed on EventsnWales in 2019.
We have looked at a range of ways to ensure that EventsnWales is able to continue to help promote your events for free. To enable us to do this, we will be continuing with co-promoting events through the fatsoma platform which you will find on our Co promoted ticketed events in Wales page, as well as affiliated advertising (varied commission rates) and also some affiliated events in which eventsnwales will receive a 1% commission of the ticket sale cost, these are events that will be listed under the eventsnwales author and will contain a disclaimer to advise that we may receive a commission on ticket sales. These events will be mainly affiliated through ticketmaster, ticketweb and ticketmaster frontgate. .
We looked at a number of options such as Adsense and other advertising avenues, but decided we wanted to try and earn the revenue needed solely through events taking place in Wales, Advertising of companies that we use or work with and also keep open the option to have Website Sponsors.
We will continue to promote all events that are listed on the website through our social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Google plus and also utilising YouTube when possible. We are also hoping to launch a monthly pdf which will contain the upcoming events for that month with links to our event pages and also i a direct link to purchase tickets if available. We will introduce a cut off time for events to be listed in advance to be included within the next months edition, which will also be downloadable.
We are always open to guest blog posts from bloggers that have been to events or are going to attend events in Wales so feel free to get in touch. The ability is also still available for members that list events with us to also put a blog out on our platform just shout for more information, we are more than willing to help.
Eventsnwales will continue to try and get events live within the quickest possible timescale, usually within 2-3 working days, (but occasionally this can take longer) at this point we would like to apologise for issues during the later end of 2018 and this caused a number of events not to be promoted, we were deciding if eventsnwales would continue. As you can see we were able to work through this period and hope to take it to new levels in 2019. We have also now started to add customised campaign links so that our members can identify if a website visitor has visited their website or ticket link through ours which we hope will help you identify the visitor numbers being referred from your listings and our website.
New Events in Wales for 2019
Already in 2019 we have seen new members such as impressive pr listing new events with the Hal Cruttenden – Chubster Tour at 4 venues in Wales as well as a number of other comedians, existing members the Princess Royal Theatre listing numerous events and continuing to support eventsnwales by using our service and also the amazing FOCUS Wales festival in Wrexham being listed again. Also up in the North we have the NWBA listing 2 great courses, so if you’re a business check them out, a great Contemporary Customer Service module and a Social Media Marketing Module (perhaps that’s one for us?). It’s great to also see our members helping to share other members events that are on our site either directly with their own followers or by sharing our posts on social media as this all helps your own events too by making more people aware of our website.
We are always happy to see both new and existing members posting events, as without you the website would not work and allow us to help you reach the wider communities within Wales and further afield.
So remember to pop over to all our social media accounts give us a Like, Follow, Share and invite others to do the same as we want to help your events reach as many people, businesses, groups and communities as we can and we look forward to seeing many more events listed in 2019.
