How to promote your events for free on our website
WE WANT TO HELP: This region has a rich variety of community groups that put a tremendous amount of effort into holding events, raising funds, hosting fetes, plays, coin trails and organising other things to do.
But one difficulty they face is the issue of promoting their events effectively across the region.
We have a solution - and it is free. While tens of thousands of people still read the print version of The Observer, our website is growing.
With more than 579,000 page impressions and 90,000 unique visitors on desktop computers alone for June, and an additional 328,000 page impressions and 88,000 unique visitors on mobile devices, the site is one of the best vehicles the region has got to communicate.
The 'Things To Do' tab on our website is designed to help non-profit community groups promote their upcoming events.
You can sign up and list your regular meetings or one-off events for free.
(The offer does exclude AGMs and public notices.)
The tab enables readers to easily search for what's on in the region. They can share the events on social media, save them to their calendar or click through to the event organiser's website.
We invite the region's community groups to take advantage of the 'Things to Do' tab on our website.
