How to Participate in the Wedding and Party Guide

To celebrate the launch of our new website, Penny Post is offering local businesses a great opportunity for a FREE listing in our new Wedding & Party Guide (WPG).

The guide will follow the same general approach as the successful Guide to Courses and Classes – which has, since December 2017, been viewed over 8,000 times – but will use a new function allowing readers to search instantly by category or key word.

The WPG will feature a wide range of companies with an interest in the Penny Post area (see below) ranging from venues to hairdressers and from caterers to dance instructors, and will be promoted in a special Penny Post e-mail sent to over 3,500 Penny Post subscribers in mid-June.

What Happens Next…

From October 2018, participation in the WPG will cost £200 for 12 months (or £120 for 6 months). This will include two dedicated mailings a year in October 2018 and Spring 2019, social-media campaigns and regular promotions in our various Penny Post newsletters.

Local Business Club members are eligible for a 50% discount.

 

• Business description: 280 characters of text, including your business name linked to your website/facebook page and any key words pertaining to your business that readers might search for
• Header image: 1000 pixels wide x 600 pixels high (image will be displayed 110 pixels wide in the listing so we suggest a close up image or bold logo)
