Add your events to Lymington.comRemember to Add your Events! 

Anyone can add their events to the Events Calendar, however Members can benefit from event promotion in the Diary section of our Weekly What's On newsletter.

Here is a reminder of how to add your events.

We will include some events by Business and Promotion Members in the Diary section of the Weekend What's On newsletter.

Promotion Members can also include their events as part of their regular promotion - with an image, link and caption post in the newsletter and on our social media.

If Business Members would like to promote a particular event or news item, this can be added on as an Ad Hoc Promotion...

Ad Hoc Promotion for Business Members

A bigger 'splash' can be made for an additional charge when you have something special to say, with a One-Off Promotion: includes image and text box in  Weekly What's On with captivating caption and link to your event, plus image, caption and link promotion on Facebook and Twitter and image with caption promotion on Instagram. 

And if you like we can also boost on Facebook to reach even further.

(By the way Promotion Members often include event promotion as part of their monthly, twice monthly or weekly promotion - Promotion Membership is better value for businesses which regularly have a lot going on).

Ad Hoc Promotion can be based on an event or on a news item...

Sign Up for NewsletterEncourage your customers to subscribe to Weekly What's On and to add Business Reviews

Subscribing to Weekly What's On is easy:  it's just: logging in required, and there's now a quarterly draw for a free meal for two on offer as well.

Please encourage your customers and prospects also to register and log in to add events and reviews - all they have to do is click the "Register" button top right and follow the instructions.

We would like business reviews to become a kind of local Trip Advisor full of positive reviews.  Every time a review is posted we have to approve it before it's published, and we will not publish rude comments.  When a review is published you will be notified, and if you see an opportunity to respond for whatever reason you are welcome to do so.  (If we see anything we think could do with a response we will send you an extra email to alert you!)

It's really easy to add reviews once people get used to it!
