We are pleased to announce that we are helping to Co Promote a number of Festival in Wales this summer as well as a number of other events. We wanted to focus on a few of these that are allowing us to work with them to help promote their festivals in Wales and allow EventsnWales to earn a small commission on ticket sales. The festivals that we are focusing on range from Live Music festivals to Food and Drink Festivals and are either being co-promoted through fatsoma or are on eventbrite. More events may be added to this list as it is updated over the next month.
So here we go with our Co promoted Festivals in Wales.
Get your Tickets and let them take you on a voyage of meeting the distillers, rum tasting sessions and great food washed down with awesome cocktails to an authentic Caribbean soundtrack of musical performances.
One not to be missed this one is at the end of September with more artists being confirmed all the time headlined by Annie Mac & Craig David’s TS5 they have also including Leathal Bizzle, DJ Sigala, Artwork, Jasper James, Jody Barr, OC & Verde, Rewire Varski, and The Stickmen to the line-up taking over Bute Park in Cardiff for the 2nd instalment of the Inside Out Festival.
We are grateful that the above events are allowing EventsnWales to Co-Promote them and urge you all to get your tickets early to avoid any disappointment. If you would like us to help co promote your event get in touch to find out how we can help.
Don’t forget if you’re looking for Tickets for Nights out in Cardiff we also help co-promote a range of these so that you can get your tickets upfront check out our co-promote page for the latest tickets available.
Make sure your following along on all our social media pages for the latest updates of all types of Events in Wales.
So Events n Wales has now been live for over 3 months and it is great to look back to see the range of events from around Wales that have already been listed on the website. We really do want the website to be a success and help businesses, charities, individuals and organisations to reach more people through Wales or to make more people aware of events being held. To do this we combine the fact of allowing members to list events which then become part of the website and are crawled by search engines all over the world. We make sure that we try to help the listings by making slight changes to the content or description to help with them get found on these search engines. As a result we wanted to just share a few of the different search terms that our website has shown up for and the website has made an impression on search engine results. (Results have been taken from Google Analytics)
Since 1st March (Launch of Events n Wales) until the 18th July 2015 we have made impressions on over 178 different queries which average over that period in the Top 10 for that search (325 different search queries in total). We won’t bore you with the list of the 178 but are going to list a number of them to give you an idea of the broad range of ways that people can find your listing even when not looking for it as all of the search queries present a way to the website and all the listings on it. So here goes :

And a lot more, but as you can see from some listed above by listing your event on our website you can be found when people are not searching for your actual event and this was one of our aims for setting up the website to help people reach further than they normally can. Without the help of all of those that list the events from around Wales we would have nothing to share or shout about so we thank you all for signing up for a membership and listing your own events.
Where do Events n Wales Visitors come from?
We have 89.92% of visitors from the UK
Which is then split by Country within the UK (some closer to the border with England may show as England depending on IP address)
We have had nearly 5,000 page views since the website was launched which is a great start, which is growing month on month. With a comparison 72.4% of new visitors to 27.6% of returning visitors from over 2,400 visitors to Events n Wales.
Our Social media accounts are also growing with over 1.7k followers on Twitter, slower over on Facebook at 346, On Pinterest we have over 300 following our boards which every event gets pinned to at least one. With only very recently set up our Google+ page we would love more followers on that Platform.
Why do we ask you to list events instead of searching for events to list ourselves?
The reason that we have the membership system and events are listed the way they are is because we want to help those that want to promote events around wales that don’t always get the opportunity to be listed on the larger websites or that have to pay to advertise the event. We want to help take some of the stress away from helping to get your events out to the public, businesses and organisations that may be interested in it. But by building the community that we are events are being shared by others that also list or connected via social media, so the reach becomes wider and the events that are listed have a more detailed description than if we just found events and listed them ourselves.
Advertising available on Events n Wales
As part of the website and to be able to keep the website free to list events we do have an Advertising membership which is open to any businesses, organisations based in Wales that may like the opportunity to advertise on the events and blog posts pages which is done on a rotation basis. You can read more about this on our membership page.
We also have Website Sponsorship available and to be honest without the support of our first website sponsors Harris Associates SW Ltd we would not have lasted this long, the hours that are put in to the website and social media and costs of running and promoting the website really do need the backing of more but we hope that this will come in time. With more sponsorship and advertising taken up the more we will be able to help promote the website through even more paid promotion and advertising and extend the reach of the events listed as well as the number of visitors to the website and promote our Website sponsors at the same time.
If you have any questions the best way to contact us is via email which you can find on the website or via our contact us page.
