Create a free advert and tune into a West End audience with our easy listing service

By Ellen Thomson at

If you’re staging an event in the West End you might want to consider our listing service to get the word out.

It is easy to use, and gives you control over what you want to say.

And what’s more, we make no charge if your event is free to the public.

We charge a small fee if your event is charged.

Glasgow West End and free listings

Simple: a basic image can be really effective when using the listings service

If we approve your ad, we will post it on our website.

We will also promote the post on our social media platforms (as of January 2018 a combined 14,000 followers and growing)

TOP TIPS:

IMPORTANT. IT REALLY HELPS TO USE AN ARRESTING, STRONG IMAGE – FREE OF TEXT.

POSTERS DON’T ALWAYS ‘TRAVEL’ WELL ON FACEBOOK, ESPECIALLY IT YOU WANT TO PROMOTE THEM.

BEST TO USE A SIMPLE IMAGE THAT REFLECTS YOUR EVENT – AND ONE THAT YOU HAVE THE COPYRIGHT USE OF

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 words.

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

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

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 out very far.
