Advertising on the Gig Guide Web Site

Gig Database:

Entries in our gig database are free.

Advertisements & Listings:

You are allowed 1 COMPLIMENTARY ADVERTISEMENT in 1 CATEGORY in 1 COUNTY for 1 YEAR

A nominal annual renewal charge helps us maintain an up-to-date database for our visitors and the ongoing development and day to day running of the web site together with the hosting and secure requirements needed to supply all services to our visitors.

N.B. All listed complimentary advertisements will receive an automatic renewal notice by email 30 days and 14 days before the annual anniversary date of the advertisement, and a final deactivation notice if the advert has not been renewed.
Should a user not wish to renew they need do nothing as the advertisement will be automatically deleted and the user will no longer receive further emails from us.

Thank you to all those who continue to support Gig Guide.

N.B. Our database results are listed alphabetically. Do not try to "game" our system by using incorrect numbers or letters such as an "a" before your listing, it will not be approved and your listing will be archived.

If you encounter ANY problems please email webmaster@gig-guide.co.uk for further assistance.

Alternative Advertising:

Gig Guide normally try and tailor advertising (and the cost) to individual needs, requirements and budget!
We feel this is a far better and flexible approach as some clients would like local coverage only, others require regional or national coverage. We can also arrange for County and surrounding County coverage to your business catchment area.

There are some distinct benefits to advertising with Gig Guide over other forms of media:

  • Advertising on our nationally recognised site can provide a higher volume of traffic i.e more users = more exposure of your advert and potential sales.
  • It will get your name/ business to a wider and increasing global market quickly.
  • We do not charge for advertising inclusion in our free gig database. (subject to our Terms and Conditions)
  • We can create targeted strategies - County, surrounding County, Regional and National coverage available. We can also place you advert in the highest used pages on the website to ensure maximum exposure.
  • We are human!
