BECOMING AN ADVERTISER OR USER ON THE MUSIC AND EVENTS WEBSITE
It is completely free to sign up to www.musicandevents.co.uk and a large part of the site is completely free to use.
It is free to have a basic listing for your act or service and access to contribute to our ‘Whats On, News & Blog’ section where you can chat, make comments about news, post blogs, upload articles, contribute to the gig guide and enter forums about the music, entertainment and event world on a local or national scale.
For a set fee, Music and Events provides space on the website for anyone to advertise their business or service. There are two ways to take advantage of paid advertisement on the website, the directory and banner advertisement.
Once a directory listing is purchased it will appear for 12 months at a set fee.
You can choose to have a ‘featured’ or ‘premium’ listing, both of which allow you to create a full customised web page (which you can edit at anytime yourself) and advertise your services.
Advertisement on the directory is only valid for acts, businesses and services related to the Music, Entertainment and Event industry.
The Music and Events Directory is divided into different categories. You can only purchase a directory page under the category which best describes your act or service. If you are a wedding photographer for instance, you could not appear under DJ’s.
Banner advertisement however can appear on any available page you wish.
If you do not think there is a section on the directory appropriate, please let us know as we may be able to create one for you.
CHANGES TO YOUR DIRECTORY LISTING
The Music and Events directory has been designed to give advertisers control so that when you purchase a directory listing you will be issued with a user name and password which allows you to edit and update your page at any time.
Music and Events reserves the right to remove any content we do not see fit, for any reason without notice.
If any terms are breached, Music and Events reserves the right to remove your listing at any time without notice.
RENEWAL OF DIRECTORY LISTING
Once purchased your directory listing will be displayed for 12 months. Before your link expires, we will contact you to see if you wish to continue for another year. The Music and Events website will automatically remove your listing if payment has not been made by the renewal date.
Banner advertisement can be purchased for a minimum of 1 month or a maximum of 12 months at a set fee.
Any act, business or service (even those un-related to the industry) can take advantage of banner adverts on the website. These are adverts which appear on the right-hand side of the website.
CREATING A BANNER ADVERT
Banner advertisement is one of the most effective ways to get business from the Music and Events website and is quick and easy to set up.
You have the choice of simply supplying a picture of you act or service which when clicked will lead to your own website or another appropriate URL.
You also have the choice of displaying the name of your act or service underneath your banner.
The other option is to create a custom banner advert and supply us with the artwork.
For a set fee Music and Events is happy to create a custom banner for you, please contact us if you like to use this service.
RENEWAL OF BANNER ADVERTISMENT
Banner adverts can be purchased on a monthly or yearly basis. Before your banner expires, we will contact you to ask if you wish to continue.
The Music and Events website will automatically remove your banner advert if payment has not been made by the renewal date. Due to the often high demand of banner adverts, we cannot guarantee the space will still be available if late payment is made.
BANNER ADVERT PURCHASING TERMS
When you agree to purchase a banner advert you will be liable for the full cost of the term you agreed to. This is something to take into consideration when agreeing to a banner advert between 2 & 6 months. An agreements for this duration means we will either set up a direct debit or standing order for the monthly payments and you will be liable for the full amount of your agreed term.
