Free service: list your event details on our website to best reach West End audience

By Ian Marland at

We have made it easy for you to get the word out about your event.

You can load details of exhibitions, galas, openings etc directly onto our website.

Glasgow West End Today

Listing : it’s a simple service to use

And then let Glasgow West End Today do the rest.

It takes 5 to 10 minutes to navigate the instructions – with 15 different boxes to fill in.

You will need an image ready to illustrate your post, and you will also need to describe your event … in anything from 100 to 200 words.

But apart from that, it’s all straightforward information you need.

Just go to the ‘events’ section in the menu and follow the instructions.

Platform: Sometimes the smallest things is what hyperlocal news thrives on.

Why use a website when we can use social media to get our message out?

Good question. Well, please use social media as well.

But often small organisations don’t have the social media reach to make posting effective.

If a group only has 50 followers it’s not likely it will get its message our very far.

What we can do is provide a platform that is visited by thousands of people every month (we are expecting 30,000 unique user views in September).

But crucially we can also share your post via our social media platforms.

We will post your link ONCE on our Facebook page which has nearly 11,000 Likes and up to FIVE times on Twitter which has 1,500 followers.

Listing service

Poster: you just need to supply an image and a description of your event

And what do we charge for all this?

The answer is nothing. Why? Because to us it’s free content.

Your event post is valuable to us because people come to our site to read what’s going on.

It’s all good for our readership traffic – which matters in digital publishing.

So, please use our listing service whenever you can.

You are helping us to help you!

* We cannot accept separate listings for individual events that make up a festival programme. We may limit individual organisations to 2 or 3 three listings per programme. We are happy to advise on this if you contact us in advance.
This is discretionary on our part. We also reserve the right to limit social media posts depending on the content and subject of the events advertised. We hope you understand given this is a free service that we need to focus our resources. Thank you.
