So what makes us different?

The Yorkshire Coast Gigs website is designed for the music lover, and those that like to go out and have a good time. Every month thousands of users head over to get their local music fix, making use of our comprehensive gig guide, artist directory and vast range of local music articles.

Thinking that our website is dedicated to the local music scene, you could say our audience is quite niche – you would be right. If your business or product shares the same audience as ours, then we’re like two peas in a pod. You could be promoting your business to the right people, right now.

 

We’re more than just a gig guide…

So you already know that thousands of users per month come to us for the what’s on gig guide, local artist directory and expanding article collection, but we’re aiming a little higher than that. Not only do we want to spread the word about the vibrant music scene here on the Yorkshire Coast, but we want to get involved and plan fun projects that broaden the horizons of local musicians and audiences. Heck, that’s why we became a CIC.

 

A Community Interest Company, you say?

Yep, you’ve got it. All the proceeds we make aren’t going to an early retirement fund. Nope, we’re committed to pumping it back into this project by evolving the website, funding exciting projects and spreading the word.

 

Projects, projects, projects…

Recent community work includes supporting young people aged 11-19 via Youth Support Services at The Street.  We visited their Youth Steering Group to guide them on press releases and event promotion, and plan to visit again for more sessions. We've also worked with charity evens to support them writing their press info.  Work such as this mostly just costs us our time, but imagine what we could begin to do with more funds to support this kind of work...

What’s on offer?

 The Headliner Banner - 670px X 70px

This is the most prominent position on the webpage, above all the main content and spreading the full width of the content area. Your banner would be one of three in circulation; only one banner will be displayed at a time, which is rotated to the next one on every page load. This increases the user experience, which makes better use of your advert. This is particularly relevant in areas where the users click through several pages on one visit, the gig guide being a great example.

There are three areas for the Headliner Banner, which you can see below. Prices are relevant to the amount of traffic per month.

The Sidebar Button - 200px X 80px

The sidebar is positioned to the right of the main content area. Here your advert will be displayed with other buttons, and displayed in a random order, which is changed on every page load to give even distribution.

There are three areas for the Headliner Banner, which you can see below. Prices are relevant to the amount of traffic per month.
